O’Hare’s yoga room is open daily from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m., and the city’s Department of Aviation plans to open a similar space at Chicago’s Midway Airport next year.
As anyone who’s flown through Chicago knows that our on-time arrival and departure rates rank among the worst in the nation. Which is why both airports, but particularly O’Hare, have stepped up efforts to give people (and families) something to do – besides eat Auntie Annie’s pretzels.
Another great spot for kids at O’Hare is a large play area called Kids on the Fly. It’s on the upper level of Terminal 2. My kids always were amused by the darkened tunnel leading to Concourse C, which has moving walkways illuminated by kinetic neon lights and new age-y music.
But maybe next time our flight’s delayed, we’ll search out a little Namaste.
