60 to Escape

The rules here are so simple that they're laid out right in the business's name: 60 to Escape. Small groups of friends, family members, or coworkers are locked in a room, where they have only an hour to use problem-solving skills and teamwork to escape. Players can select from a variety of scenarios to challenge themselves with.

If you are into riddles and mind puzzles this is the place.The story line is mind challenging and entertaining. This is no video game. My wife and I did well together and completed 80% of the puzzle. We would have beat the clock if we had more people. Best for two or more couples.

We come here Every year for St.Baldriks. which is an amazing charity. We also frequently come to Kristofs for family/ friends get togeathers. Always a blast staff are all friendly and the place is clean. BEST part is we lost our dad in Dec.2016 and Candi the main bartender and Steven the owner maid our event honoring him. Perfect and help us with any and everything we needed. Bringing in extra staff/ security and giving us the lounge to have people gather and celebrate his life's. Just an amazing time at Kristofs. I highly recommend going weather it's play or an event.

PM&L Theatre

Palette, Masque and Lyre Inc (PM&L Theatre) has been a staple of entertainment in downtown Antioch for six decades. Formed in 1960, our community theatre has grown from its humble beginnings in a converted vaudeville venue to a modern facility built to delight our audiences of all ages. PM&L runs a full season of plays, musicals and comedies each year drawn from our rich tradition while always introducing fresh contemporary and modern shows. In 2015 we acquired the building next door in order to convert it to Tribute Hall, a fresh new lounge and concessions area. We're proud to be part of the Antioch and Lake County community and invite you to visit and see the enjoyment of live entertainment for yourself. Listed hours are for our box office only, performances are on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays.

I have lived in Antioch 21 years and I finally made it to the PM&L theater! We caught To Kill A Mockingbird and while that story is a bit dry for me (the book was a tough read for me) the experience was solid good. The theater is super-small and "skinny"- I counted 100 seats on the floor and I'm guessing there are maybe 20 seats in the balcony. But the place was renovated several years ago and it is a very nice facility. There is also a little are adjacent in which you can have a drink and/or snack before the show or at intermission. Next I'll try a musical there. Nice.

Cute. Clean. Nice little trail and farm exploration set up. Would be nice to have a trail map showing how it connects with the trail system in McDonalds woods. Very nice little area! We will be back often as we live near by.

Volo Auto Museum

Reviewed By Dan B

I’ve literally been driving past the Volo Auto Museum my entire life without ever stopping in. Finally decided to take my two 10 year old boys over for a Saturday afternoon.

Never realized exactly how big the entire place is, there are multiple buildings full of different types of vehicles. A majority of the vehicles displayed are also available for purchase.

Going once is probably enough to say you’ve been there and seen it. Neat place.

The Tempel Lipizzans

Lipizzaner Stallions have been enchanting audiences for 450 years. Witness art and history come to life at one of our Matinee or Evening Performances or during a Behind-The-Scenes Tour (available by appointment only). From the playful bounding of new foals to the strong, precise jumps of our stallions, the whole family will be captivated by the strength, beauty, and intelligence of these horses. Each performance, to music, is a study in classical horsemanship which has been practiced in Europe since the 16th century; the Lipizzaners have been performing at the Spanish Riding School in Vienna, Austria since the 1500’s. There are very few places in the United States where such an art can be observed. We offer a taste of Vienna, Austria right in your back yard. Performances begin mid June and run through mid September.

I thought I knew what to expect but actually being there and witnessing the artistry of the horses and riders is awesome.

The Vine - Martini & Wine Bar

Reviewed By karenmcclu - Chicago

This is a pleasant place to have a glass of wine or beer. We have tried many martinis hoping to find a delicious one, but to no avail. The food is spotty, but the consistently delicious offerings are the filled dates and the filet mignon bits.
The greatest is to have a drink on the deck, but it doesn't open until June.

If you are looking to get into diving or are already a diver and looking for good products and value stop and see Rick. He is the owner and even though I am just a customer they all treat you as you are family. They are all very friendly and open about giving advise, not on what is hot at the moment but true and tried experience.

Last of the local, small, 2 screen movie houses. Recently remodeled, this theater is a nice option. They run new releases, and family friendly matinees at a reasonable price. Save the drive to the metromultiscreen megaplex and enjoy a movie in the comfort and quality of the Antioch Theater!
