I took my 13 year old son here and he and I both had an absolute blast. The games are awesome, and there are some VR and escape room-type features that are really cool. The manager was very nice and showed us around and made sure we were having a great time. Highly recommend this for entertaining youngsters, but adults will love it too because there is a full bar. Definitely will be back.

The pinball machines are very fun and the best room experience they have is the raft. Highly recommend the raft room if you like VR. It is smaller than a dave and busters but great for groups.

All the games are so fun! There were games we played when we were kids in the arcades but these had a digital twist on them. It was cool! The best part was the private VR room. I had never experienced virtual reality so this was a huge deal for me. The mission was to protect our raft from aliens. It was scary and exhilarating all at once. It was 15 minutes long and I enjoyed every second of it. I can't wait to go back with a huge group of people. We went to celebrate a friend's birthday. We looked into doing something different and fun and found it. We hit the happy hour deals. They have a variety of drinks that satisfy everyone in our group. The food looked good. Didn't get a chance to try any.

As someone who never considered himself as a gamer I really enjoyed the virtual reality experiences. There is one ride where you are basically buckled into a bird-like machine and you are experiencing flight in VR - I would highly recommend you do this if you are here. The restroom was very clean. The bar had great drinks with a happy hour with good options. I would definitely go again and bring people from out of town to see what the city has to offer. I've been here twice and both times were fun. We managed to have lots of fun because there's a lot to do (i.e., VR, trivia night, maze/escape room, drink). If you're looking for something unique to do on the weekend, check out Two Bit Circus.

Highly recommend you come try the place if you're visiting the area. Street parking but very easy to find space. Two Bit Circus was a really fun experience. It felt like a more arcade-heavy gaming experience than going to Dave & Buster's and it didn't have that 'casino' feel of "how much can I win from this place". Instead it focuses on people having fun though gaming, and that transcends digital gaming. There's giant Jenga blocks and giant connect 4 gaming boards upstairs. It also included a selection of story rooms which feel like an escape room. A bunch of people go in and try to beat the game in a room (VERY cooperation heavy). More digital than the typical escape room which made it very interesting. We also had a personal bar and catering. Food was great! All and all great experience! The VR games and arcade games they have are super fun! Didn't really have to wait a long time to try anything, and all the staff were helpful in explaining how their whole system works. Didn't get to try the escape room because we didn't try to reserve it ahead of time and didn't want to wait til the next available time.

Definitely mark this spot for your next special occasion or staycation, it's fun for HOURS! Great times at Two Bit Circus! Tons of different experiences for the whole family. My kids loved it just as much as I did. The interactive games were a ton of fun and new tweaks on some old classics. The VR gaming was awesome and 4 members of our group got to fight off robot zombies together. The giant bar in the middle was great along with generous portions for the fries and tater tots. Adrian and his team were really great and took care of us making sure we had a great time. Had a great time and I'm looking forward to coming back again soon. Two Bit Circus has a great collection of arcade and virtual reality games. TBC creates some of their arcade games, curates some hard to find games (Panic Park) and themes out some games (The raft).

I was a bit worried that my 5 year old would not be able to enjoy any games but he actually WAS able to play quite a few games in the Midway area such as skeeball, balloon pop, and a construction game. The food was delicious! Everyone who worked there was super nice and helpful too. I would love to go back on a date night and try out the VR games too. This is hands down the best barcade I have ever been to. It's not just VR / escape rooms, they also have indie arcade games like Killer Queen, and even one of the rarest and most fun classic two-player arcade games, Panic Park. The focus is just on really fun games, new and old, as opposed to most barcades, which seem to focus solely on stocking ancient games that old people will remember.
