Chicago >Discovery Center
“The buffet after rafting is disgusting, but after 5 hours with no food or water you'll be so exhausted you'll eat anything.”
“Makes me sick when I think of all the poor people suckered into going to classes here.”
Classes are fun and informative.
I've taking an acting class here, the one about breaking into TV commercials and the instructor was great, plus the information was very comprehensive.
Also took some personal growth classes, the one about talking to anyone, anytime and found it to be very helpful as well. I definitely recommend the discovery center, I've always had a positive experience.
AVOID AT ANY COST. I attended an excel course at this center at it was the worst experince i have ever had as a student, the teacher was a BIG JOKE, i learned more on my own than i did at this place. He was very unprofessional. There was also a $20.00 "material fee" which we had to pay on the first night, it is now 3 months later and after 6 attempts at receiving my "materal" or my refund, i came up shy. All i can say to everyone is to do yourself a favor and stay away from this lovely establishment. THIS PLACE IS A MAJOR RIPOFF.
photoshop. i spent the past 2 tuesdays taking a 4 hour photoshop class that was a waste of my time and money! the computers were inadequate, the teacher was unprepared and half the class didn't even show up for the 2nd night! i was expecting to be able to crop and adjust images as well as make fliers for my band and friends. after taking this class, i still posess no photoshop skills and am out $120! this place is a total scam and i will NEVER take another class there again. so much for joining into the community...
Raft at your own risk! The description is very misleading & it doesn't tell you that you'll be rafting for 4+ hours.
Be sure to wear water shoes (check out Target for cheap ones) and be sure to bring a bottle of water in the raft, you'll be glad you have it. Also, pack a lunch for the 90 minute yellow bus ride to the shallow river.
The buffet after rafting is disgusting, but after 5 hours with no food or water you'll be so exhausted you'll eat anything. We were supposed to get back to Chicago at 9pm but actually it was 11pm.
Ibuprofen is highly recommended.
Secret Chicago Tour was awful. If you want to start about 45 minutes late, have the tour cut short cause you ran out of time and mostly go to stores that sell small junky things or sex toys, then this is the tour for you.
