Escape from prison, rob a bank or save the world, all at Chicago’s private escape room venue! And we have remote rooms as well!

Teams of 2-6 have 60 minutes to accomplish a mission. During this highly interactive experience, participants have a complete escape from their day-to-day reality as they work against the clock to figure out the mysteries of the room. Each mission is designed so that no one person can do it all — nor can highly dysfunctional teams. Cooperation is critical. A team’s communication skills and collaborative performance are given the ultimate test under this pressure situation; group members rapidly learn each others strengths and weaknesses, something which might otherwise take months or years to uncover.

If you have played other room escapes, take note. Ours have two fundamental differences. First, your friends are the only people in the room; instead of being matched with 5-10 other people who you do not know, and never will meet again, our rooms welcome just your group. Second, the goal isn’t to unlock a room. That’s so 2013. You are saving the world. Or breaking into a bank. Or breaking out of a jail. (OK, we do lock you into one room, but at least that makes sense!).

We also offer the chance to play our escape rooms remotely! Your team can save the world or break into a bank from the comfort & safety of your own home while our actor might just take the rap for a failed bank robbery (of course, they may be safe in the bunker if that doesn’t work out so well).

Our customers love us. Isn’t it time you found out why?
