Great location. We had a great experience doing the "gold rush room." Nathan was our game master and was very helpful and fun. We were by ourselves in our time slot, and we didn't make it out. Had we another pair of eyes and hands, the outcome might have been different. Still was fun and highly recommended 👌

We were in town just for a few days and wanted to do something as a family that was a little different. The staff were great and the games were fun with a little challenge. Our 7 year old was able to contribute in both rooms that we tried and helped us escape both in time. Highly recommend giving this place a try.

My fiancé and I went here for a first time escape room for both of us. We had so much fun and enjoyed ourselves so much. We were told that our group was the first of the day to complete this room! With two minutes to spare too, haha! They have unlimited amounts of hints which was extremely helpful for beginners like us! We were paired with 5 other individuals that we did not know but we all came together and figured it out! It was such a fun exercise and the staff was EXTREMELY helpful, kind, and welcoming!! A big shoutout to “Z$”! We really enjoyed our time and would totally recommend this!! Side note, this is- apparently- the most difficult room they offer and it definitely required some brain power but it was so very fun!! Use those hints if you are a beginner!

I cannot say enough good things about The Escape Game Chicago! My 13 year old son and I booked the Mars Room during a short trip to the city last Friday, and were the only ones there on a winter morning. The staff was welcoming, professional and friendly, and got us started right away. I love that this place offers unlimited hints, and they clarified first HOW we would like hints - only on request, or also when they noticed us struggling. We said to hint whenever, and the hints they gave us throughout the game were just helpful enough to poke us in the right direction without taking the joy of discovery away from us. The Mars room was great for two people - it's pretty linear so we worked together to solve all the puzzles. We've done a few other rooms in other places, and these puzzles seemed more creative than most - not repeating the same kind over and over again. The room was really immersive and intense (but not scary), with multiple rooms and lots of audio and visual elements.
Once we finished, we actually left the building, walked down the block, and then impulsively went BACK to try another room (plus you get 40% off for doing a second room!). We loved the Gold Rush room even more - very cool world-building, awesome visuals, incredibly creative puzzles, multiple rooms, challenging enough but also solvable for the two of us.
The best part of our experience was by far the wonderful staff - they were so kind and enthusiastic, and they even made me a cup of coffee when I mentioned being under-caffeinated - I honestly could have cried with gratitude the moment the timer stopped on the room and the door popped open to a staffer holding out a mug and offering me a "coffee break." We were visiting for my son's birthday and they made a very big deal of it - he has told everyone we've seen since then about it!

Sydney was our guide today and she was super helpful and explained everything well. She gave us a preview of all the rooms that exist across locations and was super helpful throughout.
