How Escape Rooms Work

You and your team must find hidden clues, solve puzzles and complete challenges to escape the room! Sixty minutes will fly by as you use your common sense, deductive skills and powers of observation to defeat the game. Everything you need to get out is located somewhere in the room. Can you complete the challenge before time is up?

"So much fun! I went here with a group of friends that I work with and we had a blast! It really is a great team bonding experience. We did the mad scientist room and we're only two puzzles away from escaping. I would highly recommend. The staff was friendly and accommodating."
- Theresa M.

"Totally new to escape rooms. This was my first one and I had a great time. It wasn't too difficult that we needed a ton of clues but definitely needed a clue or two here and there. Lots of surprises and fun things to interact with. Highly recommended!"
- April S., Chicago, IL

"Really creative and engrossing escape room! We did the Inheritance Room as a group of four and it was the perfect amount of mental exercise for us. Great staff and creative puzzles. We'll be back for the Mad Scientist Room soon!"
- Ryan M.
