About Section Background

We're located in River North

When people think about escape games they usually picture a small, dark room with locks. Our games are more like movie sets with multiple rooms to explore and with puzzles that connect to the theme. They are light-hearted, family-friendly, and you can ask for as many hints as you want.

Our Chicago location is right off of the famed Michigan Ave next to countless entertainment and dining options, perfect for pairing an escape room with dinner and post-game drinks for a full night out in Chicago.

They're all within walking distance of our Chicago location!
