All other escape rooms feel like trash ever since I went to escape reality. 6 themed rooms and super helpful employees I've done 3/6 rooms so far. Most fun I've had in ages on God 🙌🙌

WOW! Escape Reality is the BEST escape room in Chicago by far! We all had an amazing experience! Our group had young adults to grandparents and it was an exceptionally fun time for everyone! Don’t lose out! Try it for yourself! Wonderful customer service too!
