Four of us (all adults, one family) did the Heist, successfully - along with our fabulous host, Colby. Simply could not have done it without him! Had a brilliant hour, clever clues. Loved it!

I went to the Escape Game to escape the nightmare that is my day-to-day existence--my wife and child, the job I despise, my crippling addiction to alcohol--And I gotta say, this place did not disappoint. Not only was I fully immersed in the riveting puzzles and detailed set design, but the family I was teamed up with was way better than the one I begat. It started out in a northern California wooded setting. WOW, right off the bat I was impressed. I was sizing up my teammates. I felt like it could be an even match if it came down to it. We swiftly found the first clue and were off to the next part of the room...a cabin. As confusion set in we searched frantically to find the next clue, this kid in there was a nuisance. He looked like Fabio, but if Flavio was a 9 year old boy who tried to get into everything. While we worked together we all felt a shock of connection. While searching for other clues, it got heated. Frabon started to hit things with a hammer, that's when I started pushing him around, and after that Fandango started pushing me around! I felt a real bond forming with every push. The mother and sisters started to laugh as they started pushing eachother around too, wildest thing my eyes have ever seen. We all ended up falling into a big dog pile. Wow, I thought to myself, is this what a real family is like? Not just coming home from my 9-5 wreaking of bourbon while my wife doesn't have any dinner ready and my son won't even look at me after what happend last summer. I won't go into it. Why do you have to keep bringing it up? My house smells like cigarettes because my wife keeps smoking in the living room. She just ashes on the ground. I don't mind my cigs inside, but she wouldnt bum me one, and my Camel Wides just ran out. Enough about me and my waste of life, this place is incredibly fun. No matter what troubles you're going through, this place will provide you with exciting fun that has nothing to do with the problems you're running from. And you might just find a second family in the process, if you're lucky like me. They even invited me to young Flauchio's quincineara. As the night came to a close, they invited me to dinner that night. After they looked at eachother, they said they would give me a ride home. When driving to my home they asked if I had a family. I told them, "I do now. You guys mean everything to me I can't go on without you," They agreed i should just move in with them. So we stopped by my house I told my ex-wife and estranged son adios amigos! i ran back into the car giddie as a school boy. As I jumped into the seat next to Franz Ferdinand we sang songs all the way home! i finally did it, i had a wife and a beautfiul son named faccia bread.

All in all, my journey to the escape room helped me into a new family! I will be back, 5 stars.

Explore everything! 😊 We tried the Goldrush experience and had a blast!! So much fun doing something interactive. We went from one room to the next so the stimulus keeps changing and the creativity is out of this world!!! I can't wait to get back to Chicago and try another experience. Thanks to the super friendly staff and those who gave us thoughful hints when we were stuck or being too concrete.

My group and I did special ops! It was such a fun experience, and definitely had some good challenges during the game. Would recommend doing this one with a group for sure since some of the puzzles require some team work! There was 3 of us and we barely finished in time but completed the room! The staff was also super kind and fun! Would definitely go back for another game.

This was our first time doing an escape room and I can't wait to do it again. The people were friendly and helpful. There are 4 options to choose from. We did prison break and got all the way to the last room. It was and awesome experience!

We did the Heist Escape Room and had so much fun. There were so many unique puzzles that we were all able to contribute. This is a great team building experience and would highly recommend.

So much fun. Nice and complex, had a great night with friends. Highly recommended! The space was inviting, surprises around every corner and there are selections that will captivate any and all. We ran the special ops scenario and finished it. We were so happy I bought a t-shirt. I want to go back to do their prison break scenario.

The Gold standard of Escape Games!! 3 couples - 3 games - because we loved it so much!! We booked 1 game and was offered a discount for a 2nd game on the same day and then after the 2nd game we got better discount for 3rd game in the same day.

Why did we do 3 games in one day? Because the level of detail, the creativity of the puzzles , and the challenge of critical thinking skills that was required. This is not your ordinary, run of the mill escape game. There are multiple rooms, hidden surprises and even some items that are just hidden in plain site. The staff was just amazing and they really paid attention to us. The puzzles in each game were different and unique. They aligned very well with the theme. We felt like we were the only ones in the place even though it was very busy.

One of the challenges that we had was trying to connect the different items/ codes/ sequences to solve the puzzles. We are thankful for the 3 free hints. It saved us when we hit a wall.

I’m from Ohio and drove to Chicago with some friends just to do this escape game and ended up doing 3! If you’re in the area or planning a trip to Chicago, this is an experience your will not forget. You will not be disappointed. You are immersed in the story and embody the character your supposed to play! Thank you escape game staff for an awesome and amazing experience.
