No Kids Allowed Night at Legoland® Discovery Center Chicago

In early-March, a new attraction opened up at Vaughan Mills Outlet Mall (Vaughan is otherwise known as “the city above Toronto”), Legoland® Discovery Center.  I’ve always been a fan of LEGO® and now my son is too.  So I signed up for their e-newsletter and Facebook page to be kept up-to-date on the latest events, coupons and deals offered.  I noticed in one of their recent emails, that they’ve begun offering Adult Nights (No Kids Allowed!) in both the Vaughan and Chicago locations. What a great idea, especially as a teambuilding experience! This would be a unique way for everyone to not only use their creative and motor skills but also a fun night out exploring all the cool ways to build Lego creations.  There’s also a Café that serves pizza, sandwiches and other meal choices when your hands need to take a break from all that creating!

The next “No Kids Allowed Night” in Chicago is being held Tuesday July 23rd, 7-9pm. Tickets are just $15.00 per person and it is open to guests aged 16 years old and over. Activities include: an advanced Model Builder Workshop, Speed build and creative challenges, and, Kingdom Quest Laser Ride High Score Challenges. Participants also have the opportunity to compete for LEGO-themed prizes and may bring in their very own LEGO displays that same night.

Strike up your next teambuilding event!

My friend and I rounded up all our kids recently and headed to Splitsville Entertainment during a weekday afternoon. It was my first time there; I haven’t played bowling in a looong time. As we played our game of bowling, I noticed a group come in.  One by one, they lingered in and eventually headed towards a lane down from ours.  They were there for a teambuilding outing! I thought what a great way to get everyone out of the office, into a centrally air-conditioned venue and enjoy this sunny, almost-summer day. I watched them interact with each other as they split into teams.

After our game ended, I noticed Splitsville’s teambuilding flyer.  As it states, “the most important resource your business has are its employees. Recognition and building a better team helps managers and companies have greater efficiencies within their human resources. It’s been proven getting your people “off-site” is a great motivator and increases productivity.”  As I read it, I nodded my head.  So true!

Why not consider Hamilton’s Splitsville for your next teambuilding or corporate event! It has three corporate rooms equipped with overhead projectors with seating availability from 12-75 people. However, this sleek bowling facility can hold events ranging from 10 to 550 people.  Full catering is available for breakfast, lunch or dinner meetings or events, or simply appetizers for a more casual feel. Overlooking the bowling alleys in the modern-looking lounge called “The Loft”, there are two pool tables and over 20 televisions for everyone to enjoy while socializing.  Also, there’s free parking and it’s conveniently located off the Lincoln Alexander Parkway (LINC).

Time to roll up those sleeves and strike out those pins, folks!
