The hardest puzzles, the lowest success rates. Are you ready to take on some of the most challenging escape rooms in Chicago?
The zodiac room was amazing! Super fun and the puzzles were awesome!! Steven was the best game master. Will totally come here again!!Sofia
From the orientation (Bandit was the absolute best) all the way through the puzzles were tricky, inventive, clever and authentic. I cannot say enough good things about this experience. For my first escape room I feel like the bar was set incredibly high, and look forward to more outings to Escape Artistry.Cruiser
We are a family of four with two teens and we've been to over 100 escape rooms, definitely escape room enthusiasts. We did two of escape rooms today - the Railcar and Detective vs. Dillinger. Both rooms use traditional locks and have both challenging puzzles and unique ones. The Railcar is set in a Chicago "L" train car, and for all of the escape rooms you "travel in time". We can't say much more without ruining the experience. In the Detective vs. Dillinger you play detectives. The puzzles were more of a challenge than other rooms, which one of my teens loves. We escaped railcar just in time with lots of nudges and clues. Detective vs. Dillinger we finished with about 10 min left. One unique thing about this set of escape rooms in the game masters are much more "in character" and add to the overall experience. Call up from the street if you can't get into the buildings or find the place once you are at the right address. One is on the 3rd floor and the other the 2nd floor.EscapeRoomJunky
If you are new to escape rooms, it's like a 3D puzzle, with many different types of puzzles. Definitely tell your gamemaster that it is your first game. That will help them tailor the clues. The game master will also sometimes offer nudges if you don't know what to do next or are going in the wrong direction. So if you like mysteries, cross-word puzzles, Sudoku, riddles, word games, etc.. these are for you. The first part of any escape room is usually a seek-n-find. Communication while you are in the room is very, very, very important. Sometimes letting your team members know that you found a place for a key just to find out they found a key (for example). Make sure to look at the escape rates of the rooms and look for one with a higher escape rate to begin. Again, the game masters will usually accommodate if you let them know ahead of time. Happy gaming!! A great activity for families with teens.
Came here to play one of their games since they were the only ones in the area worth while or so i thought. I'm guessing the person i spoke with was the owner. He was very rude and pushy. Not sure if he was the only one running the games at the time or what but first impressions were not great. I would personally steer clear of this place. The owner could use an attitude check. Will go elsewhere.E. Amgin
This room is awful. It's the only room I've ever walked out on. The first 20 minutes are designed to upset you until a door opens where the real room resides. Do not let them steal your money.Awful room designed to waste your time.
This was my first escape room experience and I thoroughly enjoyed it! The facilities were incredibly clean and the Escape Room team assured us of the sanitary measures they take, going as far to offer gloves for anyone in our party. Our room (Money Heist) was a ton of fun and challenging and with the help of the employee who was on the intercom the whole time to offer clues, we escaped with time to spare!Riya Sanjay
