Some highlights of the zoo include: cows, mini horses, a Clydesdale, sheep, goats, emus, alpacas, reptiles, deer, rabbits, chickens, pigs, fox and birds, including Red-tailed hawks, peacocks and Great Horned Owls just to name a few. Come and meet all our four-legged, furry and feathered friends! Pony rides are available for $4.50 per person/per ride.

Escape Rooms

Escapade 360

art

Escapade 360 is Elgin’s premier escape room. Located approximately 35 miles west of Chicago, Escapade 360 is the perfect complement to a night out, before or after dinner or drinks. Our family-friendly themes are fun and safe for guests ages 12 and up, and your group is sure to be talking about your experience for days afterward. Come experience a journey from the everyday!

Panic Escape Room

art

Panic Escape Room is more than just a game of logic; it’s a collaborative problem-solving experience. Sure, there are certainly portions of the game that will require the use of puzzle-cracking strategies, but it is the way the team works together that saves precious time on the clock. A team of puzzle masters will not necessarily translate to success – you need to be a team that works together!

RocHaus

Hawthorne Hill Nature Center

Hawthorne Hill Nature Center

Hawthorne Hill Nature Center is the perfect place to enjoy rich fall colors, snow-frosted trees, spring wildflowers, summer amphibians, and an ever changing host of birds near the pond, in the woods, or even from the comfort of the nature center. The 67-acre natural area that flanks both sides of Brookside Drive has a wheelchair accessible trail that leads to the pond and sedge meadow as well as wide, wood-chipped trails to access other areas. Please bring your family and friends. We have games and activities for children and families to enjoy together. The pond is a great place to teach your children to fish, or to just appreciate the natural beauty.
