Owner description: The WhirlyDome, Orlando’s newest and perhaps most unique attraction located in the heart of International Drive, introduces Orlando to the world’s first totally mechanized team sport – WhirlyBall. WhirlyBall is best described as a combination of bumper cars, basketball, Jai-alai and hockey. The game is typically played 5-on-5, with players piloting WhirlyBugs (high tech bumper cars) as they use a scoop to pass and shoot a plastic ball at their opponent’s goal while bumping and blocking their way around the court. Games have a referee to enforce the rules, keep score and make sure all players have a great time. The game requires no prior experience – and absolutely no athletic skills at all! WhirlyDome visitors can also experience the sights, sound and adrenaline rush of what it’s like to drive a Formula One race car. The WhirlyDome is home to the new Formula One racing simulator from Evotek Engineering – the first of its kind in the U.S. Created in Italy, this simulator is modeled after the F1 simulators used by professional racing teams. WhirlyDome also offers Lazer Frenzy, where players navigate a maze of laser beams, haze and mirrors, as well as the latest in Laser Tag. Guests will also find pool tables and a variety of arcade games. WhirlyDome isn’t just a place to play, it’s also a place to relax and unwind while enjoying a drink, lunch or dinner at Bloodhound Brew Pub & Eatery. Bloodhound Brew is a casual pub featuring local specialty craft beers and a full menu made from scratch with both indoor and outdoor seating. WhirlyDome has multiple party rooms with complete AV capabilities and is ready to provide the food and fun for large corporate functions, family reunions and everything in between. There is no admission charge at the WhirlyDome. Visitors pay only for activities that they take part in.

Whirlydome is a cool place to take friends. The main attractions of the place is Whirlyball - which is a crazy game where you drive around in a dodgem car, and try to score points by hurling a ball with a stick at targets on the wall. A hybrid of lots of popular games rolled into one. They also have an amazing F1 simulator, which is one of only a few in the world, it's the realest driving experience I have had in a game - quite expensive to play, but well worth it if you can get the hang of it. I now have even more respect for F1 drivers.
They also have a lazer tag arena, a bowling alley and an arcade. Add on a bar and you have a great place to have some friendly competition over a couple of beers. Great fun

The whirlyball was really fun. We played during all-you-can-play Thursday night special and had a blast. However, when we sat in the bar, we were ignored by the bartender. A member of our party walked up to the bar to get the bartender's attention, but still no service. So, we went down the street to another restaurant to get our boneless wings and drinks. We came back and played more whirylball.

I went here for my birthday with a group of about twenty people. The food was delicious, there is a good selection of beer, and the staff is very friendly. WhirlyBall is a blast! Most of the people that went hadn't been before and now they can't wait to go back! Definitely worth checking out!

I go here sometimes. Whirly ball is fun and addictive. The food is good, the bartenders always cool, they have some good beer selections as well as great food. The problem with the place is the management/ownership, the person that owns it operates it with his family, which is horrible because you can tell his family hates the place, that always appear upset and are hardly friendly even to repay customers. This place has so much potential they just need to figure something out. Go check it out play whirly ball, go with friends, up to ten players
