Urban Air Naperville Is Fun For All Ages (Birthday Party Package Giveaway)

Thanks to Urban Air Naperville for sponsoring this post.

It’s the first day of fall so I’m doing what every mom does when the weather starts to cool down…I’m making a mental list of indoor activities to keep us busy through autumn and the long winter season that I know is just around the corner. Those in the Chicago area can add Urban Air Trampoline and Adventure Park to their list of cold weather boredom busters. I was pleasantly surprised to find more than just trampolines at Urban Air Naperville. They had Go Karts, Spinning Bumper Cars, Sky Rider Coaster, Climping Walls, Rope Course, Tubes/Indoor Playground, Warrior Course, Dodgeball, Slam Dunk Zone, and more.

This family-friendly entertainment center in Naperville has attractions to interest every family member. Those with tweens and teens will even be amazed to find their tech-obsessed kiddos putting down their phones to connect and interact with them through adventurous, unique, and engaging activities! What I loved most was how many activities that everyone- from the younger Kindergartner in our group to the adults- could do together. Typically when we go places either the younger or the older kids are standing around bored but that was not the case at Urban Air because they could play together.

Looking to get the most bang for your buck? On Thursday nights, the Ultimate Pass, 4-guest ‘family pack’ is just $79.99 for access to the whole park except the go-karts. (If anyone in the group wanted to upgrade it would be $10/per person for the upgrade to include the Go-Karts.) The $79.99 price also inludes 4 water bottles, 4 pairs of socks, and a large 1 topping pizza. Valued at $143 for just $79.99!

Urban Air Naperville is also a fun place to host a birthday party and there are a variety of ways to customize the party. There are four attraction packages from the basic party that includes the trampolines, dodgeball, runway tumble track, and slam dunk zone to the platinum package that lets party guests play throughout the whole park. You can choose to have a private party room with a dediated party host staff member or just a table in the cafe area with a shared party host. There’s even a glow party option where lighting gets replaced with black lights, strobes and lasers while the kids play glow-in-the-dark dodgeball and jump to their favorite songs. Sounds like a tween’s dream party!

Favorite Family Friendly Restaurants Around Naperville, Illinois

Ever travel and wonder what restaurant to eat at? Which ones are kid friendly? Which ones have good food? Well wonder no more! Members from the Social Fabric blogging community are sharing our favorite restaurants in the United States, the UK, and Canada. I am sharing about restaurants in the Western suburbs of Chicago, Illinois and in about a week will be sharing everyone else’s posts as well. Here are my favorite kid-friendly local restaurants:

All Aboard Diner

1) All Aboard Diner (Downer’s Grove, IL): We love this train themed restaurant! Ask for a counter seat and a train will come along the counter and deliver your food. This is a favorite to visit on birthdays because the train will bring around a little cupcake (they also have a party room). Thomas the Train plays on a tv screen and a train runs around the ceiling of the restaurant to keep the kid’s entertained.

2) Johnny Rockets (Bolingbrook, IL): This is a fun, old-fashioned diner. Pick a song from the tabletop jukeboxes to listen to while you eat. Favorites at this restaurant include burgers and milkshakes.

Lobster Grilled Cheese from Jimmy’s Grill

3) Jimmy’s Grill (Naperville, IL): During the summer this restaurant is a great place to go because of their large outdoor patio. It’s located in Naperville’s cute downtown area and is a fun place to people watch. The food is delicious as well. Last time I went I got the lobster grilled cheese sandwich. It’s a little pricier than we are used to but it’s pretty decently priced for the area. Kids are welcome at the restaurant and given crayons and paper to color.

4) Choo Choo Johnny’s (Naperville, IL): Similar to All Aboard Diner, this is another train themed restaurant where a little train delivers the food. Check the website for deals and coupons.

Pretzel dog with bacon and cheese & chili cheese tots

5) Sonic (multiple locations): This is a fun drive-in restaurant. They have great “happy hour” deals on foods and milkshakes. I love their new pretzel bun hotdogs, the boys like their french toast sticks, and Sinisa loves their cranberry juice with cherry syrup.

6) Lou Malnati’s (Bolingbrook and Naperville, IL): I live in Chicago so you know I had to have a pizza place on this list! While not my favorite place to go for pizza, I love going here for their salad. Yes, you read that right….I said I’d choose salad over pizza! The rest of my family does like their pizza though.

Cracker Barrel

7) Cracker Barrel Old Country Buffet (Romeoville and Naperville, IL): This restaurant is great for spending some time relaxing with the family. The porch is full of rocking chairs. There is a country store inside to check out as well while you wait for your table. Each table has an old fashioned game and there is a fireplace inside which gives the restaurant an at home feel. Crayons and an activity sheet are given to each child. My favorite food here are the cinnamon apples I get as a side dish with my French toast.

8) Culver’s (multiple locations): I discovered Culver’s when I was in college. I like their burgers because they toast their buns. The kid’s meal comes with a free custard which the boys can get if they eat their lunch.

BONUS: Bolingbrook, IL has a restaurant at the small, local airport called Charlie’s where kids can watch the planes take off and land. I’ve never been there before but it’s on our “to-do” list :)
