1. An Escape Room 

How could we put anything else but an escape room at the top? Though of course Ultimate Escape Game is our number one pick, there are many of them located around DFW. Escape rooms allow a smaller group of family of friends a private place to pursue an outing filled with puzzles, tension, and atmosphere. Many escape room companies have shifted to private bookings at the moment (check with the company you plan to book with first), and have slowed their schedules down to put exhaustive cleaning measures in place. Better yet many have gift cards available on their websites, thus taking the booking out of your hands and putting it in the hands of your gift’s recipient.
