    A lovely place but not much to do. Have your expectation low and you'll find it interesting. Must be more beautiful in warmer seasons.

    I was proactively looking for somewhere to bring my son during our trip where he could run around and also be interactive. This was the perfect place for him. He's not into climbing just yet but they had the play kitchen and grocery store which was super cute. He had a blast!

    They do have time slots in which they allow a certain number of people at a time for 30 minutes. It was a great way to give everyone a chance to experience the space and keep things moving.

    I took my 4 1/2 year old grandson to this facility while visiting DC. To charge $10 for a child to play ONE HOUR with a bunch of balls, climb up ladders, slide down tubes, and play with other kids (Oh! sounds like a park playground, right?) is daylight robbery, so I decided to pay $15 for the entire day, because my son told me that my grandson would enjoy it. When my grandson decided he wanted his milk and I tried to go to the vehicle, I was advised we could not regain admission, so we remained, and bought a drink from their in-house cafeteria! We all know that young children's attention span is very short, so how long would they be satisfied with the above (repetitive) activities? We left after about 2 hours, and he didn't even object to leaving. Like me, I guess he'd had enough! In fact, he spent the last 30 minutes or so, playing the video games. Next time, we'll just go to the park and take a tablet!

    A cute neighborhood Playpark. Has ground water features geared to small children. Fenced and gated with some playground apparatus present.

    This is a great spot to relax. If you have children they can play with chalk,or play on the playground and more.

    Ok folks I have a sleeper for you.
    Took my daughter to see, "The Magic Duel" tonight as part of her Christmas gifts. This was absoluetly the BEST show per cost I've attended in the last 5 years or so. Absolutely blown away by Mark Phillips and Ryan Phillips comedic genius combined with their underhanded, overhanded, slight of hand magic stylings. These two could stand alone on their one liners, jokes, and snippity, snarkey humor however the magic you witness has a separate if not even stronger punch of its own. Yes, the audience was repeatedly floored and no participants suffered in any way at all.
    I HIGHLY RECOMMEND YOU SEE THIS FOR YOURSELF!!
    Located in the basement of the picturesque Mayflower Hotel, Washington DC.

    Don't say I never hooked you up..................

    Seven of us tried “The Agent” room. At first we were a bit mystified—the clues are clever but hard, and there’s lots of information to process and piece together. But gradually we caught on, and when we got really stumped extra hints appeared on a screen in the wall. Our cluemaster was a gentleman, and told us what we’d missed when we didn’t escape in the allotted hour (which 80 percent of players don’t). We had a blast and would love to go back and try another room.

    Did a Pirate related escape room and our game master Matt was a great help. All round the room was very well built and just a great time from start to finish!

    We thought we were going to a different axe throwing place to celebrate my sister’s birthday but ended up at Bad AxeThrowing instead. What a nice surprise! It felt authentic and comfortable. It was nice that you could bring your own drinks and food. The staff was super friendly, down to earth and helpful. We highly recommend Bad Axe Throwing. We will be back!

    Escape Artists DC was so much fun! The owner was so kind and welcoming, the space was clean, and the escape room was so much fun! We did the Gallery Heist themed room and while we didn’t make it out in time, we still had a lot of fun trying to! I would definitely recommend it and am already planning my trip back!

    This was our company's holiday event and it was, in my opinion, the best one we have ever had! Everyone who participated really seemed to have enjoyed themselves. This was my first time to try something like this and I cannot wait to round up a group of friends to go again!
