The hardest puzzles, the lowest success rates. Are you ready to take on some of the most challenging escape rooms in Chicago?
My wife and I are enthusiasts and have done about 30 rooms throughout Chicago so we figured we'd explore Evanston and some of the outlying suburbs. Lock Chicago did not disappoint! The puzzles and theme were spot on and the employees working were very helpful and friendly. We liked how Malfunction had two different options to "win" and while we didn't complete the entire room we did just enough to get on their wall of champions! Thanks Lock Chicago for a fun time and definitely recommend checking these guys out for anyone in the area.Dan Fuller
Close proximity to Northwestern and the public transit so was easy for us to find their facility.
One of our favorite escape rooms in the Chicago area! We actually went and did Malfunction in Lock Chicago's original space when they first opened in Evanston and were amazed at the new changes they made to update it. The staff and owners were kind enough to invite us in and give us a tour of the new facility. My family and I are Escape Room fanatics and look forward to doing their newest room soon!Roger
This place is small and although the owner is nice, we have been to better places. This place is just okJohn
The wife and I tend to try an escape room or two where ever we go on holiday. This is by far the most fun room we have played. Two teams must work together to escape. So we'll themes and reasonably hard to escape. Really immersive environment. Everything flows very well and pretty logical. Keep your clues till the end....you'll need it.hmltnangel
We had a great time at the Vault. We did the Mad Scientist escape room. It was fun and challenging. There were five of us and all of us had plenty to do. We had to make use of some hints which helped a lot. The owner was very friendly and helpful. I was so glad we found this place. I will definitely try to go back.Mark
We had a great experience in the Omega Hour room. Truly a fun and challenging escape. This was only our 2nd escape adventure, but we were thrilled to pull off another win (with less than 2 minutes left on the clock, on this one). Excited to be the 100th group through this escape room and the 24th to conquer it.Deb
