Birthday Parties, Chicago, Things To Know

A birthday party at Accelerate is fun at any age.

Don’t let the kids have all the fun. “Think Young. Have Fun.” It’s the motto we live by every day, and there’s something timeless and universal about enjoying the wind at your face, twisting and turning around a Formula 1-inspired course in a Formula 1-inspired kart. Of course, if that’s not your speed, there’s always the primal satisfaction that only comes with sticking an axe in a wooden bullseye. Want something a little more high-tech? Then try Chaos Jump, where you can compete with or against your friends in a 3D, multi-leveled world.  No matter how many friends or family...

Life is a party when you get to go fast. Fun is something too good to not be shared. At Accelerate, we live by the motto, “Think young. Have fun.” This means we believe that the more fun you can have, especially with others, the better. Now, think of the last time you were part of a group that had a lot of fun, so much fun that you had to post it everywhere and share it with your friends and family, something you just couldn’t wait to do again. Chances are, it was a party that had all the...

Destination with Fun

There’s great fun and enjoyment to be had. It’s halfway across the globe and just around the corner. We’re constantly seeking the next enjoyable thing as humans, which is OK as long as we don’t miss out on the enjoyment. If there’s one thing these last two years have taught us, basic joys don’t need much effort. There’s nothing more exciting than feeling the wind in your hair racing through bends in a Formula 1-inspired pro kart that can achieve speeds of up to 50 miles per hour or the primal joy of slicing a wooden bullseye with an axe.    Think Young. Enjoy Yourself. “Think...

March Gladness

March Sadness Can Be Turned Into March Gladness Every year, we subject ourselves to the same agony, which is why it’s known as “March Madness.” Consider that for a moment. There are 64 clubs and 63 fan bases that will be disappointed. Only one player ultimately wins. Oh, and the misery grows exponentially as your team progresses. That last-second three-pointer that clangs off the rim and sends your team home hurts a lot more in the Final Four than it did in the Elite Eight, and it’s a lot safer than losing in the Sweet Sixteen. You don’t even have...

Win Like A Woman

When it comes to “Win Like A Woman,” you’re never too old or too young. Clara Schumann’s first global tour began when she was barely 11 years old. At 36, Julia Child began to learn how to cook. At 60, Mary Lyon founded the nation’s first women’s college. Billie Jean King vs Bobby Riggs dubbed as the “Battle of the Sexes,” took place in 1973 and was much debated. In what would subsequently be dubbed the battle of the century, King beat the odds and came out on top, showing the 90 million spectators that strength is not gender-specific and...
