An hour (or two in traffic) SW of Chicago, but they call it a suburb. In
NYC, we call that Connecticut. Anyway, Tinley park has the Chicago areas
newest indoor park, and it's pretty fun.

The street area is awesome, layout and flow, lots of boxes, slides,
slopes, wallride ramps, etc..

The bowl is pretty fun too. It is only 6 feet deep, but it has a hip and
a 70 degree corner, as well as an escalator up and down another 6 inches
around a corner. It is built by Plywood Benders, and apparently they
know what they are doing. It was not very big, but big and steep enough
to blast over the hip in either direction (unlike that super mellow hip in
Berkeley CA). Most of the guys there skate it like a mini ramp but they
should learn eventually that there are corners.

I wouldn't go so far as to say it is one of the best in the area, but it
is in the top 4. As a matter of a fact, my preferences for the Chicago
area are as follows and in this order: Wilson Beach/Chicago,
Whiting/Indiana, 4Seasons/Milwaukee, Tinley Park/Illinois... and the
other crap if you're extremely bored, or content with skating on asphalt
with ramptech garbage.
