The WhirlyDome, Orlando’s newest and perhaps most unique attraction located...

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.

We had to try it

My husband and kids ages 12 and 13 had a blast playing Whirlyball. It was definitely worth a stop during our recent trip to Orlando. I saw smiles all around the entire time.

Pros: WhirlyBall, Laser tag, and the car simulation. We also enjoyed the Dance Revolution and Basketball Arcade games. Staff was very nice! Cons: Easy to overspend because of the card system. The menu board says "no refunds," but I wasn't worried because the back of the Whirly cards specifically say that the cards can be used on "food, beverage, and... More

I'm giving a low rating due to the poor and lack of customer service from the front desk and laser tag employee. The female employee at the front could not be bothered with assisting my kids. She was unwelcoming and seem bothered to help with picking up game cards. The laser tag employee also had the same attitude. The only... More

Please be assured that this level of customer service is not usual and will be investigated immediately. Thanks for your time - please let me... More

We have played several times here during the day and it is rarely very busy. They have food and drinks but we have not eaten here. The laser tag arena is very nice and the equipment is in very good shape and works well. We will continue to go here regularly.

So, we totally stumbled upon this while souvenir shopping in Orlando. We usually go to this plaza because there are some worthwhile shops and we've always seen this huge odd bean of a statue outside. We kid because it's quite hideous. We noticed the venue changed names since the last time we were there but the huge hideous statue outside... More

We love this place and visit whenever we are in Orlando. Go either on thursday from 6-10 or Sunday from 4-8 and its all you can play whirlyball and lazertag for 25 dollars. Great option for when it is raining. There's a restaurant/bar but we never tried it, too busy having fun. We will be back next year

I went here with a group of friends around 15 of us. We did about three games. It was amazingly fun. I never heard of this before. I will definitely return when I am in Orlando.

Took the kids here for some fun and had just as much fun as they did. It is located on the old end of International Dr so it is not as crowded as some of the attractions. We played laser tag and several of the arcade games. My husband drove the F1 race car simulator and said it was great.... More

The hirlydome is such a fun place to spend an afternoon or evening playing indoors! It is great for a good laugh with family and friends. The manager, Samira is absolutely amazing. We love it so much, we will soon host a party there!
