    UK visitors to the Lone Star state with zero knowledge of American football, its stars or history, but still recognise the name Dallas Cowboys! Super interesting tour (Sammye was our guide - she knew her stuff, clearly loved football, and had a style & presentation skill enough to keep all interested). The stadium was huge and fascinating to see ‘behind the scenes’ (no surprises, everything was as expected, but still great to see). Definitely worth the visit & VIP tour, whether or not you’re a football fan.

    Imagine temperatures outside upper 80's inside the stadium 72!! Easy access to seating and great seats, with the field in clear view. Sadly the Rangers lost but we had a great time!

    A great tour with lots of history. Vickie Bryant has done a wonderful job putting it all together and finding all kind of artifacts related to it's fascinating history. It really is a must see if you're in the Arlington Texas area.

    Great park! I went this morning before it got too hot and hiked 15 miles of trails. Didn't get to all of them and will try to go back tomorrow to explore some more. Very level and paved trail. There are also unpaved trails if that is more to your liking. Fairly busy but enough time between people to also be alone at times. There is also a place to put in kayak or canoe in the river plus a BMX dirt bike trail that is really big. Everyone was nice that I met. There are bathrooms there, however, not a lot of them. It was very safe place. I would highly recommend and enjoyed being here. Have been in the Arlington area all week and falling in love with this town. Much of the trail is shaded which helps out with the Texas heat.

    Lots of great rides. Good variety. Well thought-out kiddie area. Comparing this to Fiesta Texas, most of the kid rides are in a central locations with one main entry/exit point, so if a kid runs off.... it's just easier. I appreciated that detail. Another convenience was all of the drink refill stations. The tacos were pretty good too. Lots of gift shops. A lot of the cafes were closed and no show were going on that we noticed. The water rides of course were closed for the season. Overall, it was a great day. Will definitely be back.

    The food was good and the service once you were identified as a new guest was good. Only comment high end pricing and parking near stadium very expensive.

    Where do start. I’m at the park currently writing this bevause I just had to make a review. This place is ran by teenagers that are on there phones the entire time. I was in the biggest slide and watched a young girl almost too soon bevause the girl was on her phone. Nobody tell you an iInstructions on the two bright I walked all the way up the stairs and had to come all the way back down the stairs just to get a tube. Let’s not even start talking about the food the dining is an absolute disaster, takes a very long Time for cafeteria food, And please note if you have your pass on your phone and you stand in line for 20 minutes and you don’t have the physical card when you get to the cashier they will make you go get the card and stand back in 20 minute line which was absolutely absurd I’m looking for a manager right after this and will never be buying a dining pass or eating here again. The rides are okay Honestly I don’t know if I’ll be returning, it’s a medium thrill for adults

    I'm not a bowler, but had fun at this Hall of Fame and Museum. The history of bowling was quite interesting. Stop by if you're in the area.

    We live close to this area and enjoy the size & length of the walking trail. It is clean, safe and our dog enjoys the whole experience! If you visit take along your poop bags, just in case! But, there are resepticals for trash. Also, carry bottle water for yourself & pet...it does get hot here in Texas! I recommend the trail adventures. Handicap accessible. Enjoy 😀

    The summer outdoor concert series is great! The grassy area was comfortable seating, even after a light rain. Some people sat on the surrounding cement steps, or even on the steps of the building across the street. (The street is closed down for the concert.) Top grade music brought in for the free concerts.

    The convention is easy to access the parking lot. Also the dock area is convenience for exhibitor to move in. Parking only charge $5 which is nice compare to all the other city.

    My wife and I enjoy craft beer and Division was a hit! I can’t remember the beer names but they were #13 and #15 on the beer menu. Great service and a funky, eclectic mix of music on the station they played. Enjoyed everything about the place. Nice outside seating in addition to inside plus 225 BBQ and another restaurant right there for dining. They seemed to have something for every beer taste. If I lived there, I’d be there!

    It's a large well organized store. All the workers are extremely helpful. To really browse and eat at the delicious tea room allow yourself 2 or more hours.

    We were visiting family in Arlington and needed some indoor activity for our 7 year old kid since it was 109 out there. There was public/paid parking right next to the building and the planetarium itself was pretty big. They had a short presentation prepared by a college student before the main show and both were good, although a little too scientific for my kid.

    Visited Saturday afternoon and enjoyed everything! They don’t serve food, but allow food to be brought in. There’s a couple of restaurants and a super food truck close by. This is a fun place to go, have some excellent on-premises brewed beer and be entertained. I saw young children playing in the game area, but i’m not so sure this is the best place to bring kids. Legal Draft Brewing also offers tours...make reservations. A wedding reception was taking place when we arrived...so I guess we’re officially wedding crashes now! It was a lot of fun!
