Escape This

As DFW's highest rated escape room, Escape This offers the most fun and challenging escape room experience in Texas! Escape rooms are a fun form of interactive entertainment where you and other participants are placed in a room with various clues and puzzles. The group has 60 minutes to solve challenges in the room in order to find a way out! Escape This offers 4 compelling rooms which challenge participants in different ways. Unique to Escape This, each room experience presents a mystery that must be solved in order to escape the room. At Escape This, puzzles are not shared between rooms, and every challenge is different. While many escape rooms aim to shock and awe participants with scary rooms or lull them to sleep with rooms full of "busy work", Escape This provides a creative and intellectual experience with challenges that must be solved with logic and critical thinking, and not luck or aimless "Where's Waldo" searching. Unlike other escape rooms, challenges at Escape This can be solved in multiple ways. This means teams must think critically, work together, communicate and use strategic thinking to be successful. So if you are new to escape rooms, a seasoned enthusiast tired of escaping low level rooms in 15-20 minutes, or a business manager looking for that perfect team building event, Escape This is your place. Give us a call, or stop by to see what all of our great reviews are about. We look forward to having you!

We did the room that was not scary and has had the most success in escaping. The Epicurean room did not dissappoint! I had a group of 11-12 year old girls and we had a blast. The team working with us was so patient and very supportive! We really enjoyed our time!! I would recommend this place to anyone!

Pete's Dueling Piano Bar

Reviewed By msilos88 - Dallas, Texas

We went as a large group of friends for a birthday party. The entertainment is definitely what draws you here and keeps you coming back! However, it was extremely overcrowded. The waitress had to squeeze between tables and ended up spilling a beer on my shoes as well as herself. The staff was very nice and tried to accommodate the large crowd as best as possible. There was a cover charge of $10/pp which wouldn't be bad if they alcohol prices weren't insane. $84 plus tip for 12 beers. You can do the math....outrageous! All over, it was a great experience, but with that kinda of income...they could afford more restrooms & a different way for customers to get in and out of their tiny space.

Reviewed By TXMCK - Dallas

It is easy to hike the paths here. There are plenty of other people and their dogs enjoying the vistas. There is a nice observatory tower and a few footpaths off the main ones. Plenty of squirrels and rabbits skitter around in the bushes. It is not overly shady, so use the sunscreen and wear a hat. There is no light on the paths at night, so plan a daytime hike.

Historic Downtown Carrollton

Reviewed By Five_Aces_Tx - Dallas, TX

I've lived in the Dallas-Fort area most of my life and have somehow never seen this area of town. I know I've been close to it several times. Anyway, I was highly impressed! A nice little square with a park and gazebo in the middle and lots of shops and a few restaurants all around. Check out the Plaza Theater on one end. It's been converted for use as an event center but they still have some live shows in there as well. As I understand it, more parking is coming for that area as well.

Super collection of aircraft, both airworthy and static. A good variety from WW1 up to Gulf War. It's well worth a look if your into aviation. Could do with a small cafeteria or something would be my only criticism.

Ultimate Escape Dallas was our 4th or 5th escape room experience and we though it was about average from what we've experienced previously. As a franchise/chain, they have their game pretty well figured out. Maybe a bit too much, as though the staff was very...MoreThank you Valiant for the review.

It is an open area and worth checking it out when the weather is nice. It is just nice to be walking around in addison circle instead of going for any specific event.

WaterTower Theatre

Reviewed By texaswillie - Dallas, Texas

This is a small town theater however I like it because it is small and rather intimate. The plays and productions may not be world class but neither are the prices. Seating is good and parking is generally close by on the street or parking lot. This is a nice venue for a small town and the events change on a frequent basis. If you have not been to a small town theater that is up to date, then you might ant to visit this one. By the way there are some eating places just a block away if you are looking for a snack or dinner before the show. Leave you car and walk to the restaurant which I find that to be really nice.On a side note there are season tickets that can be purchased but due to some plays we didn't particularly care about we are not a season ticket subscriber.

AMC Village On The Parkway 9

Reviewed By VegasBling - Las Vegas, Nevada - USA

Happened to be visiting this city when "Me Before You" came out. Parking is hard to find in the busy shopping center, however, there are many convenient restaurants close by if you don't want to eat at the theater itself.

Staff is friendly and accommodating. The facility itself is clean and well maintained.

We got to the movie late when there were no two seats together. Chairs for disabled companions are not available. We ended up in the row second from the front - I was pleasantly surprised it wasn't bad at all. I could see the movie without feeling like I was too close.

Overall excellent experience; would definitely return again when in the area.
