Odin's Table

"Lift Thy Glasses!"

Odin's Table is a unique Texas Wine Tasting, and one fit for the Gods. Curated by knowledgeable staff, you will taste through 5 very distinct Haak wines:

  • Mead-style White wine
  • White Port
  • Tawny Port
  • Blanc du Bois Madeira
  • "Renaissance" Madeira

This tasting is interactive, educational, entertaining and also includes a commemorative wine glass with TRF and Haak logos.

Outside the private Tasting Times, Odin's Table will welcome all patrons of the Faire to enjoy glass and bottle sales.


Odin's Table will be closed to non-ticketed patrons during the designated Tasting Time Slots in order to provide a private tasting experience.

Tea and Cookies

Tea and Strumpets (High Tea)

Hosted once daily, high above the bustle of New Market Village, this full meal experience provides an interlude of respite in your whirlwind of a day. Bottomless pots of tea with a hearty array of sweets and savories are served at tables you fill with friends. Luscious treats hand-baked by our sister shop, Queen's Pantry, paired with Tea and Strumpets' Signature Savories are presented to you in a relaxed, indulgent atmosphere with enough personal space to enjoy it all.


Due to guidance from the National Restaurant
Association, we are selling whole tables again this
year, as we cannot seat strangers together.

The price per seat is $55 per seat. Table size options are seating 4 and seating 6.

We are only seating 1 teatime per day, at
2pm.

During high tea, only guests with tickets to that day's
High Tea will have access to the upstairs.
Otherwise, the deck and bar are available for visitors
from 9am until 1pm, and opens again at 5pm to the
general public.

All teas are a home blend and are available for sell to
take home if you become addicted.

Texas Renaissance Festival Escape Rooms

2021 brings four Escape Room Adventures to the Texas Renaissance Festival, in a giant, newly renovated Air-Conditioned location!

AIRY BOTTER & THE SORCERY SCHOOL HEADMASTER’S OFFICE

Your Headmaster 'Almost Stumbledoor' needs your help! The school is being attacked by non-copyright-infringing dark forces, and you must get word to the Department of Sorcery! Can you rescue Boarcorn's Academy in time?!


Returning to TRF after a sellout season in 2020, this parody of a fairly well-known book & movie franchise is an exciting, fun introduction to escape rooms, or a quick challenging diversion for seasoned 'escape artists!' 20 minutes/$14.99 per person/4 people minimum/8 people maximum, difficulty 3/5.

AIRY BOTTER & THE ALCHEMIST’S LAB

Professor Plumbum has lost his mind and is going to set off an "Alchemy Bomb" using the Philosopher's Kidney Stone to turn the world's gold into lead! Using magic and technology, can you save the world's economy (and jewelry)?

This brand new 'Airy Botter' adventure takes you to London in 1899 where you and your team of sorcerers must use your wits and magic to find the keys which will defuse Plumbum's bomb!

45 minutes/$29.99 per person/4 people minimum/8 people maximum, difficulty 4/5.

THE PIRATES' DILEMMA 

Your plucky band of privateers are enjoying their ill-gotten gains in your hideout when your Captain sends word the King's Guard are attempting to break in and take you all to the Tower of London! Can you hide all the rum bottles and doubloons in their secret hidey-holes before the soldiers defeat your security and catch you red-handed?
45 minutes/$29.99 per person/4 people minimum/8 people maximum, difficulty 4/5. Can be played either as a competition with the King's Guard Adventure, or on its own.

On its own, or as half of the pair of competition escape adventures, this immersive 16th Century London room will challenge you to solve codes, discover hidden compartments, and show the King's Guard you're all just friendly folk and completely innocent of wrongdoing!

THE KING'S GUARD

As soldiers representing His Majesty the King, you are charged with upholding the law. You have been sent to a dark, foreboding alleyway in London, outside the reinforced door to a hideout of notorious privateers accused of unsanctioned piracy. Your job is to defeat their security and unlock the door, so you all can arrest the criminals, and confiscate their treasures!
45 minutes/$29.99 per person/4 people minimum/8 people maximum, difficulty 4/5. Can be played either as a competition with the Pirates' Dilemma Adventure, or on its own.

On its own, or as half of the pair of competition escape adventures, this immersive 16th Century London alleyway will challenge you to solve codes, defeat security defenses, and show the pirates they can't get away with stealing (if they're not going to share with the King)!

COMPETITION ROOMS

"The King's Guard" & "The Pirates' Dilemma" rooms can be played by two groups in competition: both groups will start at the same time, with 45 minutes maximum on the timer. If the Guard can get into the Pirate hideout before the pirates finish hiding their booty, the Guards win. If the Pirates can hide everything first, they win.

The 'losing' team will still be allowed the rest of the time left on their clock to solve their puzzles… but they'll not get Winner's Badges at the end. If you wish to compete with people you know, you'll need to book both rooms at the same time, 4 people minimum per adventure room,8 people maximum per room.


Ticketing is online for pre-paid reservations, or at the door. We recommend booking in advance, as 'prime-time' slots sell out days or weeks ahead of time.

Your entire group will need to arrive no later than 15 minutes before your scheduled time, for introductions and rules. IMPORTANT: If you're late, you will either forfeit your session time, or have your time available on the clock reduced.

These escape rooms are for folks basically 13+ in age, please. Though the content is not "PG-13," per se, the difficulty level and nature/theme of the puzzle design is constructed for the non-child crowd. Also, at least one adult parent or guardian must be in the room with those under 18. Also, be as sober as possible—inebriated guests will be asked to leave, with no refunds.

Cost for the 20-minute Airy Botter adventure is $14.99 per person, and the 45-minute adventures are $29.99 per person, plus tax and fees, 4-person minimum purchase (8 people max).

You can also add people later in-person at the room if you like (up to the max 8).
These are private bookings, meaning you won't be grouped with people outside your team.

HEY! Really important: These tickets are a separate admission from the General Admission Festival tickets. Be SURE you've bought your festival tickets first, to be positive you can get in, and then buy your Escape Adventure tickets!
