Where is a good place 2 take your 5 yr old son that's not named chuck-e-cheese's around the Chicagoland area? More like the suburbs in cook?
Something that a 5 year old would like is the zoo. There is the Lincoln Park Zoo, the Chicago Park District Zoo and the Brookfield Zoo. You might also like the Shedd Aquarium, or the Adler Planetarium. For discounts, you can go to http://www.smartdestinations.com/chicago-attractions-and-tours/_d_Chi-p1.html
You could also go to six flags or Dave and busters. Or Navy pier
