We brought an international team of developers from our company for a team building experience. We had two Brazilians, two Indians, an Italian, and 4 Americans. It was a fun experience that encouraged us all to work together to solve all the challenges. Highly recommended...More

We had company in from Australia and the 4 of us had a blast doing solving "Mission Critical". The staff was very nice as was the owner. We'd go back in a minute. Have fun.

Mr_BFH, thanks for coming and we’re so glad you had fun. And bringing family from down under qualifies you for the prestigious “EFF Longest Distance Travelled” award (just created). Thanks again and hope to see you back soon.

The company name is very misleading as the room was not very fun at all. My siblings and I had a groupon for The Chamber, so we figured we'd make the ride from Chicago to try things out. We had done a previous medical themed...More

This is truly a challenge. Did not have any idea of what this adventure would entail, was a little nervous. You are given very limited instructions, which make the experience very rewarding. Loved it!!! Not sure if the next escape room challenge will be as...More

That's so awesome! Thanks for the review. Sounds like you got immersed in the story and up to the challenge. The great thing about escape rooms is that each one typically offers a unique story, puzzles, and challenges....and its own excitement.

It was okay. The decor was lacking and most of the locks were keep trying until you get it. 3 digits - try 6 combos until you get the right one. There is no thinking or logic associated. The staff was super nice and the...More

We have a couple of rooms at our location in Wheaton and the Chamber is lower tech than Mission Critical. That said, we think we put together a unique story line with challenging puzzles and cyphers to entertain a full group of 10. In most...More
