“Fire Zone Schaumburg”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 2, 2012

We had an amazing experience at Fire Zone. What a great idea! The staff was wonderful (I didn't get the girl's name, but the guy was a very cute Fireman Jim) and they jumped right in with my son to play. He loved it! It's affordable, it's educational and it's wonderful that they limit it to an hour so that you are not committing to a whole weekend day. I loved that I was able to take such great pictures and what's even better is that it really has driven his play at home. As soon as we returned, he pulled out all of his firemen toys and has been playing rescue all week. Thank you for such a quality day with my son.

“Every kid should visit!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 30, 2012

So glad Firezone moved to Schaumburg. We live in Hoffman Estates and its a few minutes ride and a must do. We had just talked about fire safety at home so the kids loved seeing the rescue and talking to real firemen.

“Great Place for kids”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 30, 2012

My son is obsessed with fire trucks. We love going to the fire zone, and the staff knows him by name. We also had his third birthday party here. They really work with you to make your child's party special. We continue to go for the drop in events as well. My son loves being able to "drive" a "real" fire truck, as well as play in the ambulance.

“Kids Loved the FireZone”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 3, 2012

We visited the FireZone during 'drop in' (like open gym time) while on vacation in Schaumburg. Drop-in is usually available for 1 hour per week and is posted on the website. Parents need to stay with their children and supervise.

Location: The website and tripadvisor were slightly confusing. We now know that FireZone used to be in Glenview but moved a few years ago to the Schaumburg location. Drop In times are posted weekly on their website (http://www.firezonefun.com) and admission is $9/child + tax (although there appear to be groupons out there).

This was a perfect play destination for our preschool children. Although it wasn't very exciting for the adults, my children loved it! There were opportunities for playing on a fire truck, play fire poles, ambulance, fire hydrant with hoses, fire ladders, a 911 Call Center, rescue house, and a fire safety demonstration done by the staff who are actual firemen and women.

“Unique place for Birthdays and fun”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 8, 2012

We have had a birthday party here and been to one. A fun birthday experience for kids ages 3-8. Price is reasonable compared to other birthday experience places. Kids get dressed in fire gear, learn what firemen do and get to climb on a truck, slide down a ladder and save a child from a home that is "on fire". No real fire jsut a smoke machine but fun to see the kids interact and compete in teams on activities. it is run by off-duty fire fighters which is pretty neat. they have play days but have never been to one of those.
