I absolutely loved every second of it. The amount of detail that they put into the escape rooms is great!

We try to make a trip to Chicago between Christmas and New Years every year. We’ve played at this location twice and we had so much fun!

Never had this much fun in a while, it’s a great team building exercise. This place is a must visit in Chicago if you are up for the challenge!

This was my Christmas gift to my family. I booked the 'Mission to Mars' for all the guys and us girls did 'The Heist'. What a blast!! Even my nephew said he didn't want to like it, but he did. Highly recommend!

Our family has visited several escape rooms. The escape Game Chicago was, by far, the best...many puzzles to decode, locks to open, fun surprises. Definitely recommend The Gold Rush room and hope to return to try others.

So if you go to book online, you can "reserve" as many spots as you want (until you hit the maximum, of course). It's public though. So, let's say you want to reserve an 8 max room. You reserve 4 spots for you and your 3... More
