A new escape room called Diablo Escape Room is coming to Walnut Creek right in the retail center where Color Me Mine and Bar Method are located. According to a planning commission report, it will be 2,763 square feet. I’ve done a few escape rooms at Red Door in Concord and a few other places and am a big fan when done right. Looking forward to this!
From the report:
The Diablo Escape Room is an interactive venue that consists of team‐based games where participants discover clues, solve puzzles, and accomplish tasks in one or more rooms in order to escape the room in a limited amount of time.
Last month the giant entertainment center Dave & Buster’s opened in the Veranda shopping center where Toys “R” Us used to be. It’s very similar to Round 1 in the Sunvalley mall, also in Concord. The dining section is much bigger, there are pool tables but no ping pong nor karaoke rooms. I noticed they have a VR section with chairs that move in rhythm to the experiences which looks interesting. Bring your eag plugs because it’s loud, just like Round 1. And good luck with parking! One time I had to park on the street due to the parking situation.
The restaurant and a video arcade Dave & Buster’s, which earlier this year we learned would be occupying the former Toys “R” Us spot at The Veranda in Concord is opening next month on September 2nd. Check out their Concord web page here for happy hours, weekday specials and local events. I look forward to checking this place out if I can snag a parking spot. 😬
