5 Fun Activities at the Chicago Auto Show

Posted by: Amanda Christianson

If you are thinking the only thing the Chicago Auto Show can offer is activites for gear heads you are wrong! Even if you’re not a car fanatic, here are some noteworthy attractions at the Chicago Auto Show. You’ll love these surprising added features!

Here is a list of 5 unexpected things to find at the Chicago Auto Show:

  1. The Muppets - The child in you will love seeing the Muppets being featured at the Toyota display. The bright green 2014 Highlander outfitted with the Muppets characters can be spotted a mile away.
     
  2. Ford Mustang Pinball Machines - If you’re looking for a blast from the past, head to Ford’s Pinball Wall.  The area is covered with Mustang-themed Pinball arcade games.
     
  3. Zombies! - Hyundai has teamed up with the television phenomenon The Walking Dead and recreated a frighteningly fun exhibit.  Everyday Hyundai vehicles have been transformed with apocalyptic features to fight off zombies.  Guests can ward off zombies and have their pictures taken during the action.
     
  4. Coffee Bars - Need a caffeine buzz? Stop by Buick’s coffee bar or Lincoln’s espresso lounge. Buick is handing out three variations of coffee beans, as well as “latte art” that you can digitally share with your friends.  You can sit and relax at Lincoln’s espresso lounge while discussing your plans for their “Date Night” sweepstakes.
     
  5. Feather Boas and Temporary Mustaches - Visit Chevrolet’s Greenbrier Photo Van to play dress up and score a pair of yellow sunglasses. A photographer will snap goofy pictures of you and your friends, and you’ll take away memories as well a flipbook documenting your photo shoot.
