Chicago Room Escape Adventures
Updated June 19, 2017
Chicago is a popular city for room escape adventures - so popular that the windy city is home to a conference dedicated to the art of room escapes.
Mobile Room Escapes will bring the escape room (aka 32 foot trailer) to you. It's like a food truck except you're stuck inside...and there's no food.
Located in the Fine Arts Building on Michigan Avenue, Room Escape Adventures is a popular adventure for tourists and locals downtown. There are two zombie-themed escape rooms, the original "Trapped in a room with a zombie," and the second 'Still Hungry' adventure.
Smaller groups of up to five have an hour to solve puzzles at Fox in a Box to escape from a bank, bunker, prison or science lab. Lower level of Dearborn Station in Printer's Row.
Escape artistry uses story-driven puzzles. Teams have 60 minutes to decipher the clues, find the key, and escape. Rail car theme Flat Iron Arts Building in Wicker Park.
Escape Chambers in North Chicago challenges gamers and brainiacs to two challenges: A Jail Break and The Job.
PanIQ Room is a West Loop escape room choice.
What happens when you put a scientist, a jack-of-all-trades, a bodybuilder, a video game fanatic, and a math teacher in a Mob room with a bunch of puzzles to solve and only an hour to escape? One hell of a time! #soundslikethestartofabadjoke #kristanlookatthecameranexttime #paniqroom @dannyto4 @kerbs95 @williamskristan
