Such a cool concept.Vladimir
I've always wanted to try something of this sort when I was travelling but could not find such place anywhere in Chicagoland that wouldn't seem cheesy or too easy. Got super excited when I found out Escape Brigade was opening up.
I went with few of my friends (6 people, all in our 20's and 30's) without quite knowing what to expect. Not to give anything away - it was super fun and interesting. I'd say it was the right mix of cues, puzzles to solve, and a pressure of trying to complete the challenge before the time ran out. Not knowing what this Escape game is definitely adds to the thrill.
Everyone on the team gets involved and contributes. Also, no matter how well you think you know your friends, you really get to see how they behave in a completely new and challenging situation, especially when you only have an hour to escape the room. Kind of cool to observe that, too.
I was told the second room is in the making and I'd love to go there again soon.
You've been summoned to the lab of the Official Interplanetary Timekeeper. An evil group has been bending time for their own benefit, placing your colleague in extreme peril. Using your unique blend of skills and teamwork, you and your guests must work together to free the Timekeeper. Can you complete your quest in time?
For the Halloween season, we're introducing the Twilight Edition in which our players try to solve the room in the dark using only flashlights! If you'd like the lights on, however, you have the option of doing that too!
