The Dallas' Shops at Park Lane is welcoming Two Bit Circus to its offerings. Dallas News reports that Two Bit Circus is being described as a micro-amusement park filled with virtual reality, arcade games and interactive story rooms. The micro-amusement park covers a 35,000-square-foot space on the second level of the shopping center. Two Bit Circus President Kim Schaefer told Dallas News:
"Everybody needs a little fun in their live," "That's what we really strive for at Two Bit Circus, is to bring people together elbow-to-elbow to come and play, to socialize, and to have a great time."
When you enter the amusement park, you are immediately greeted with a large sign that says "MIDWAY." The park is full of digital games that replicate the games that a real carnival would have, with a focus on multiplayer games that keep guests active during the visit. Dallas News says Two Bit Circus wants to get people away from staring at each other through a screen and back to staring at each other in person.
Dallas has been the testing ground for entertainment projects, with Dave and Buster's and Main Event getting their start locally. Dallas News reports that Two Bit Circus started in Los Angeles in 2018 and the past few years allowed the company to determine what works and what doesn't work when considering the Dallas location. The new Two Bit Circus has 45 employees and is looking to hire 20 more people. Two Bit Circus told Dallas News it's all just about coming and having a good time.
