While it’s been a long time since something as much fun as a visit to Two Bit Circus cost only a quarter, this fun-for-all-ages entertainment complex is worth the price of admission. It features the latest in immersive entertainment, multiplayer VR experiences, and fast-casual dining. For adults who tire of watching their kids win all the games against them, there’s also a full bar, with some specialty cocktails mixed by a robot bartender.

Between games, players can also watch creative, circus-inspired classics in the theatre. Two Bit Circus consists of multiple indoor zones, including a reimagined midway, an arcade filled with vintage classics and new hits, and various Story Rooms. These fun filled escape room-like experiences and world exclusives are unique to the Dallas location. A multi-player VR Arena and VIP lounges are high Two Bit Circus. Their mission is to bring people of all ages together, elbow-to-elbow, to play.

Two Bit Circus opened its first Texas location last November, at 8030 Park Lane Suite 200, (across from NorthPark Shopping Center) in Dallas. Packages start at $35, with playing cards that can be used on attractions, from VR to Midway games, Story Rooms, and food and beverage. Hours are Tuesday-Thursday 5 -10 p.m.; Friday 5 p.m.-1 a.m.; Saturday 1 p.m.-1 a.m.; Sunday: 1-10 p.m.; and closed Monday.

Kim Schaefer, CEO of Two Bit Circus, said, “We’ve always known that the Dallas community is the perfect audience for our next location. We couldn’t pass up the opportunity to partner with Northwood Retail and The Shops at Park Lane in such a central part of the city. It was the perfect match.”
