April 23, 2022 Velvet Mowry

Westchester County, a collection of towns that serve as a popular suburb for the bordering New York City, is also the gateway to the Hudson River Valley, an area that promises a plethora of outdoor activities, from sailing to bird-watching to cross country skiing. The County also contains Rye Playland, a popular children's amusement park, historic sites from the American Revolution, the African American Heritage Trail and several famous houses, including Lyndhurst, a Gothic Revival mansion.

The Rock Club

Reviewed By TeeoffS - Westchester County, United States

June 2019, great place to overcome your fear of heights. The place has has many skill level walls for newbie to experienced Rock Climbers. From the staff to the people who were just there to rock climb, everyone was very nice, and helpful. This was second time Rock Climbing in over 10 years, and I had a blast. My only suggestion is that all staff wear a bright color Tee Shirt so you can distinguish them from the crowd of people who are just there for climbing and having fun. Love this place, and it is a MUST TRY at least once in your lifetime or twice :). I like the fact that you can get a Day Pass, and not locked into a membership.

We were looking for something that would be fun for my nephew’s 16th birthday. He’s a tough kid to impress. Well, we couldn’t have picked a better venue. My husband, 17 year old son and 16 year old nephew had a BLAST! If you’re looking for something different and out of the ordinary, look no further! We were greeted warmly upon our arrival and only had to wait a few minutes for our room to be ready before we began our “escape”! We used up the entire time getting out...but needed help from the “spirits” along the way (a spooky voice gave us hints when we got frustrated). The Vampire Escape Room was challenging enough for my son (who’s done escape rooms before) and “easy” enough for the adults! The decor and background music really made it feel especially spooky! I knew we had a winner when even my husband said, “That was a lot of fun!” Highly recommend The Puzzle Parlour and can’t wait to find a good excuse to go back again!

I traveled to Hour to Exit with a group of friends on this trip. We played two games during this trip. We played Dorm Room and Elude the Illusionist. These two games were my 63rd and 64th escape games. I always like to touch on the owners. Dwayne and Brittney were awesome. They ran our games themselves and they were great gamemasters. They listened to how we requested to play and ran the rooms spot on. The first game that we played was Dorm Room. This was the first time that I ever played a head to head game against another group. The other group was the other half of our friends. Dorm room was decorated exactly like you would guess, like Dorm Room. There were some really clever puzzles built into this room and the use of technological items was a nice surprise. The second game that we played was Elude the Illusionist. I was really looking forward to this game. It had been recommended to me from a few friends. I really enjoyed it. The decor of the room was beautiful and I loved the theme. The amount of puzzles and the challenge level was perfect for a team with some experience. I recommend that you head down to Hour to Exit and play their games. I will be returning to play the last room that I have not played yet.

Great venue with interesting titles. Great for seniors during weekdays. Very clean and reasonable. Comfortable seats. Parking can be a bit of an issue so show up early and stroll the shops.

The Back Nine Indoor Golf

Reviewed By CHURCHGUY - Portsmouth, United States

I had never been here before but after the service the GM Tim gave i will be recommending this place to my golfing buddies. He was patient in explaining the process and even though I just used the driving range the accuracy of the machines was amazing. And I had lunch so i can say the food was very good. If you miss golf during the Winter then this is the place to come with your clubs! One hr and you play a whole golf course!!
