Capture the flag in Chalco Hills
- 8901 S. 154th St.
- Open from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m.
The Chalco Hills Recreation Area has an open layout that is perfect for a rough game of capture the flag. And it has plenty of hiking, fishing, and picnicking to make this place ideal for a full day of activities.
But no other pick-up game can compete with Capture the Flag, a physically intense game that has no limits in terms of age and number of players in teams. With the simple ingredients of a few flags and a few people, you have a game. Just steal the other team’s flag and bring it back to your base. And with the park at your disposal, there is no limit to where or what your bases can be.
Be honest – gambling keeps you young. And Capture the Flag is a proven leisure event that encourages exercise, fun, and strategy for those who are genuinely engaged. Just make sure you bring plenty of water as catching flags can make you sweat.
