We recently appeared as contestants on a one-hour game show. There's zero chance any of you saw it — it never aired, because it wasn't filmed.

The big picture: North Texas has several interactive game show experiences to give couples and groups a taste of what it could be like to be a contestant on a show.

The intrigue: We had a fabulous time celebrating a friend's birthday at the Great Big Game Show in Grandscape and taking our fake game too seriously.

  • The roughly hour-long game show experience could also work for date night and team building.

How it works: At the Great Big Game Show, two teams compete in several rounds of games that are set up like Plinko, spin-the-wheel and "Are You Smarter than a 5th Grader?"

  • A host guides contestants through the game, engaging with the group and cracking jokes like TV show hosts normally do.

Where: Great Big Game Show at Grandscape in The Colony

Cost: $39 per person

Pro tip: Book in advance because spots fill up quickly at some places.
