As a first time viewer of roller derby, I was very excited. The event was a great deal of fun and very affordable. There was an added bonus that the proceeds from this event go to a worthy cause. My husband and I brought our 12 year old...continued

Easy parking in the Target garage. Plenty of (folded chair) seating. The beer was not fantastic, but the baked goods looked delicious. The Outfit did not look to be as professional as the Carolina Rollergirls, and thusly were beat. Next time, I'll...continued

First time at the roller derby and it was exciting. The women really fight it out on the floor and it's thrilling to see so many athletic women of all shapes and sizes battling it on the floor. The venue was the perfect size to watch up close...continued

Great entertainment, great food, great beer. No bad seats in the arena for the event. Incredible value for the small price of admission.

Great fun. The casual, on the floor folding chairs make for an intimate environment.

It was a fun atmosphere. The seating is close to the action. I would definitely recommend this event for a different and unique activity.

My first roller derby and it was a hoot and a ton of fun! It's not Like you see in movies. .. this is family friendly. I was surprised at how often skaters were penalized by officials which kept the match clean. Crowd was wonderful and...continued

Not what I expected. I'd seen the roller derby events at UIC pavillion, and was expecting a similar set up. I didn't realize the Windy City Fieldhouse was a "sports complex for families." This was much more of a basic event than a "night out"...continued

A good deal since the regular price at the derby was $20. FYI: The fieldhouse is hot, so beware. Overall a fun experience.

A very fun chance to see Roller Derby action for a great price. The Chicago Outfit is a much more DIY team than the WCR but I think that adds to the fun and the charm. It feels like you just kind of found some place where they have taken over for...continued
