This escape room was the best one I have done. It was not extremely difficult, but was challenging enough to trip you up a little bit. Our guide was really nice and gave us helpful clues when we were stuck. I went with a group of 7 and we finished with 10 minutes left. I recommend this room for teenagers/adults.

So much fun. Nice and complex, had a great night with friends. Highly recommended! The space was inviting, surprises around every corner and there are selections that will captivate any and all. We ran the special ops scenario and finished it. We were so happy I bought a t-shirt. I want to go back to do their prison break scenario.

Great fun! I took my family of 6 there for the holiday weekend. With COVID19 going on we were a little weary of participating in anything with a crowd. The checkin was easy and we were separated from other groups. The rooms are pre-sanitized so we were very comfortable. We didn’t escape (we thought we won and lost time with a last minute plot twist), but we had a great time. The kids loved it!

I've been to The Escape Game Chicago twice now over the last month and it's always a fun night out with friends. Covid protocols are followed and we felt safe as they don't mix groups for games currently. Gold Rush and The Heist were both super fun, we highly recommend! I'll be visiting again in the near future.

I've played and enjoyed all the ones in SF, and ever since I've been hyped to play their other games in other states. I'm happy to say that Chicago's store lives up to the hype! Though I personally wanted less hints, I can't deny that our game guide Lucas gave some extremely helpful ones that made the game more enjoyable for everyone else who played with me. Thank you Lucas and everyone else at the Chicago branch who helped make the experience great for us! I hope to play another game again soon.

My fiancé and I went here for a first time escape room for both of us. We had so much fun and enjoyed ourselves so much. We were told that our group was the first of the day to complete this room! With two minutes to spare too, haha! They have unlimited amounts of hints which was extremely helpful for beginners like us! We were paired with 5 other individuals that we did not know but we all came together and figured it out! It was such a fun exercise and the staff was EXTREMELY helpful, kind, and welcoming!! A big shoutout to “Z$”! We really enjoyed our time and would totally recommend this!! Side note, this is- apparently- the most difficult room they offer and it definitely required some brain power but it was so very fun!! Use those hints if you are a beginner!

Our game guide Raynice was excellent. She was professional but also light-hearted, friendly, and positive. This made our experience all the better.

As for the game itself... wow. A fantastic experience. There were minor issues with the game but that in now way took us out of it.

We played Mission to Mars. It was plenty challenging while still being fun. I don’t want to spoil anything, but it is totally worth your time, and very different from other escape rooms I’ve done. Michael our game master, and Matt at the front desk were so awesome and enthusiastic and really made the experience. Thank you!

We don't want to give anything away...but this experience was amazing and incredibly immersive. We loves it so much we took advantage of their return offer. This was easily one of the best room we have done so far (5 and counting)

We came in a group of 6 ladies and my 8 year old son! We were greeted by Caroline and she was so sweet! We played the Mars escape room and it was a ton of fun. We made it out with about 15 minutes to spare. Payton was a great guide and we are excited to come again! Caroline also let my son out a pin on the map and that was an extra special touch.
