Breakout

BreakOut! In Warren is Michigan's first live Room Escape game. Search the room, find clues and solve puzzles as a team to escape the room!

Reviewed By Tamra316 - Grosse Pointe Farms, Michigan, United States

Super fun outing with three girlfriends! We did the zombie room and while we didn't get out, we found three keys. Highly recommended for groups and families, although some questionable language in clues for those under 18. Zombie room is best with larger sized groups (8-10). Well organized, clean location, and friendly staff!

I took my boys and their friends, ages 10-12 and we had a blast! From solving the puzzles in the lobby to earn extra playing time, to working together to “escape”, we all had a great time.
The room was challenging, but not impossible!
The staff was warm and welcoming! We can’t wait to go back and try another room!

GM Heritage Center

Reviewed By ThomasEMM - Amersfoort, The Netherlands

Was lucky enough to be able to join a group visit to the GM Heritage Center, as it's not open to individuals. If you want to get a good idea for what GM has produced over the many years, this is the place to be. Really worth to get a group together for a visit.

Te Roma

Reviewed By gwilczynski W - Clinton Township, Michigan

Good neighborhood bar that's been at the south end of Center Line for many years. The former Pershing High School teacher and basketball star has a gem and knows how to treat his customers. His bar food is much better than average bar food and it's a great, safe place to come for a beer and sandwich. Keep up the good work Doughe Sills, who once was a pretty good third-baseman.

The Zoo’s newest attraction is the spectacular Polk Penguin Conservation Center, the largest facility for penguins in the world.

Reviewed By Danielle M - Lovington, New Mexico

Although we visit the zoo regularly, we love spending New Year's Eve at the Zoo for Zoo Lights! It is so awesome to walk the park in the dark by the glow of the millions of lights they have depicting various things, as well as the dancing lights! The 4D show, hot chocolate, specialty liquor and beer, and local food favorites are also available.

Viewing current movies at this location is always a positive experience. The earlier in the day, the better the experience. No crowds, no long wait lines, no overall hassle. The facility is clean, the concession counters are well stocked, the seats are comfortable & the staff is both helpful and friendly.

The Rust Belt Market

Voted "Best Place to Buy Original Art and Local Craft" by HOUR Detroit magazine, The Rust Belt Market is the intersection of creativity and business. Its founders transformed a vacant big-box store into an event venue and hub of 50+ independent retailers-offering a unique mix of goods both handmade and collected by local artists. Explore and leave inspired.

Reviewed By Richard48220 - Detroit, Michigan

The site has gone through many incarnations, including an Old Navy Outlet store. It is currently a denizen for many local entrepreneurs to open a space to sell art, t-shirts, furniture, vintage games, scuplture, natural soaps herbs sachets, and more, historical photos, memorabilia, and more. Funky, fun, lots of great Michigan stuff.

Some of the venues will take credit cards, some are cash only

Freedom Hill

Reviewed By Computernana - West Bloomfield, Michigan

I was invited to a lunch bridal shower. The inside of the building is nicely appointed. The room was set up and decorated by the party hostesses. Looked very festive. There were about 70 people. Food provided by Andiamo.
It was a buffet. The hostess sent us table by table so there was no waiting in line. The food was hot and plentiful as the wait staff refilled as needed. We were offered Cuke salad, potato salad, rolls and butter, pasta in a red sauce, quiche, home fries, blintzes, a sausage veggie dish sweet rolls, muffins and fruit.

The food was plentiful and hot. Beverages were offered at the table. I would recommend this venue for any large party.

Hazel Park Raceway

Reviewed By ferryspotter - saratoga NY

Pulled our visit forward when we learned they were closing 5 weeks early. Easy access for this handicapped person and there was an excellent buffet including sausage and peppers and onions and thin-sliced roast beef and gravy. 16 ounce Budweiser and Labbatt's for $2 may have helped a good natures crowd of several thousand.
Fortunately, we were at a table with a monitor because the "toteboard" gave no information other than fractional running times during the actual races. We have previously attended Thoroughbred racing at 4 other sites in Michigan, all of which are gone now. The horsemen and fans deserve their racing and I hope Hazel Park reopens next year.
