A new facility has opened its doors to invite the masses to experience one of the most fun sports known to man.......where you don't use your legs! WhirlyDome's signature entertainment offering is WhirlyBall, which is a combination of bumper cars and lacrosse. The WhirlyDome also has arcade games, lazer tag, bowling, billiards, and a race car simulator. This video of their Seattle facility explains the game further:

Florida’s first WhirlyBall venue is now open to customers on International Drive. The WhirlyDome is in the renovated — and now two-story — Sports Dominator outlet.
WhirlyBall combines bumper cars, basketball and jai alai. It’s usually played with two five-member teams in WhirlyBugs. Organizers say it’s the “world’s first totally mechanized team sport.”
Pricing for WhirlyBall is $10 per player for 15 minutes, $20 for 30 minutes and $30 for 60 minutes. A court can be reserved for $250 for 60 minutes.
Folks without a full team can check in with an attendant, who fill games when enough players are on hand.
Umpires are provided. Players must be at least 12 years old and at least 54 inches tall.
Other activities within the 25,000-square-foot WhirlyDome building are laser tag, a Formula One racing simulator, billiards and arcade. There is no general admission fee. Guests pay for what they use. WhirlyDome is also home to Bloodhound Brew Pub & Eatery, a full-service restaurant and bar.
WhirlyDome is at 6464 International Drive and is open 11 a.m.-2 a.m. daily. Reservations can be made by calling 407-212-3030 or at the website (www.whirlydome.com)
