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.
