A very well done, realistic and challenging escape game! We did the prison break and the tension was real as the clock ticked down! Escape is possible but you have to work together. The room was detailed and full of clues. The entire facility was...More

Was me and my wife’s first escape room experience. We did the recommended gold rush room. It was very fun and interactive. Puzzles ranged from average to difficult. We actually did the room by ourselves and beat it with one minute and 23 seconds left.

This was our favorite activity we did on our Chicago weekend trip. All our kids ages six through 17 and the adults had a blast! We can’t wait to go back!

We played The Heist on Saturday. Best escape room I have ever been to! The production value was amazing! Finished with 14 minutes to spare!

We went with 6 friends, and another couple was booked with us. We did Prison Break, and it was so much fun! It was great working together, and I would definitely recommend this experience MULTIPLE times!

This experience was like playing Clue but actually being "in" the game. The staff was very personable, the room my group selected was very challenging, and we ended up completing the challenge. I would recommend this activity for any groups that are even slightly curious...More
