What are these "escape rooms" everyone's been raving about? You finally decided to find out for yourselves and book one. Everyone has to start somewhere! Here is a list of all escape rooms for beginners in Chicago. Experienced players can also pretend to be newbies and enjoy a balanced combination of puzzles and props.
I stumbled upon Vault Escape Rooms when my cousin was visiting from out of town and we were looking for something fun to do. This place was close to us and at a reasonable price so we decided to check it out. Staff is friendly, professional and very helpful. So far we've managed to escape both rooms we've done: Rival's Revenge & The Witch's Spell. Upon arrival we're greeted and given instructions on do's & don'ts, then we get a back story to the room before time starts running. Puzzles are challenging enough to keep you thinking outside the box but not overly hard that you can't crack 'em. If you get stuck you get hints which come in handy. Both times we've had 4 people participate, but I believe VER's allows up to 8 participants in some of the rooms. What we really liked was that when you book a room it's booked privately just for your party. I look forward to checking out the rest of the rooms, but I definitely recommend this place!Chivix T.
rivals revenge is great for pre-teens.Charlenne
If you have not done this before - you really should. Its a super fun distraction to the mundane and allows you to escape and to escape...Gerald W
An excellent time, lots of family fun!!Michael
We came in as a small group but we had Blast. Our host Josue did an amazing job. He was friendly and helpful. We finished in the nick of time but that was because we were too stubborn to use our hints.He's added to our experience and was a great asset to our night. I would def come back to do it all over again.Janet G
Fun, challenging. Good value for the price we paid. Good activity for friends. Would recommend at least 4 people to make the challenge doable as any fewer might make it hard to finish all the challenges on time.Ren T
