If you are looking for something different to do than this is for you. Very fun time and isn't as loud as everyone else says!

Fantastic and hilarious. Pricey, but definitely worth it! Went with whole family - kids down to age 7 loved it. Non stop entertainment. Had been before, a few years ago, and loved it both times. Will go again in future for sure.

Absolutely amazing show. Has a very interesting history. Very fun and entertaining. Is loud so if you're looking for quiet entertainment, this is not for you. At times, you need to be an active participant. Not something you want to come real dressed to. Has...More

No, that wasn’t my photo. We were on the floor about 1/3 of the way back from the stage. Fantastic seats.

We took the CTA 22 bus from downtown- which was very convenient and less expensive! Only had to walk a couple minutes when we got off at Clark & Berry.

I think you actually do see a bit better when you're a bit further back. In Chicago, the first rows are below stage level, and there are things to watch the length and breadth of the stage. You do have a better overall... More
