My company had Lock Chicago come and do a mobile escape room event at our headquarters in Deerfield and we all loved it. My team and I then decided to do a smaller event at their actual location in Evanston and were recommended the "Matsuri" room. For most of us it was our first escape experience and I can tell you it won't be our last. The manager was super nice and we were able to get out just in time. We're already planning our next event in a few months to go back.Thomas
My husband and I had an escape room day planned where we went and did 4 escape rooms in the Chicago area - this was by far one of our favorites! Very friendly staff and were able to chat with the owners afterwards who were very passionate about the business and gave us a tour of their facility in Evanston! We can't wait to go back and try their other 2 escape rooms soon. Perfect for a night out with family, friends, coworkers or more!Alyssa Devlin
I brought my students here for a team building event/field trip and they absolutely loved it! We did 2 rooms, Matsuri and Sunburn back to back and they were a fun experience for our class to do as a group. We didn't get out of Sunburn but the staff were nice enough to allow us to finish since we were so close.Alyssa P
This was our 3rd escape room in the Chicago area and it was a blast. The staff were very friendly and did a great job explaining what to expect in the room while keeping it a surprise. The kids were raving about it and we’re already planning birthday parties to go back and try their other rooms. Located very close to Northwestern’s campus in downtown Evanston so lots of good restaurants and food options nearby too.Eric Rippin
My friends and I did Lock Chicago's Sunburn and Malfunction room back in 2016 when they opened and absolutely loved them. Naturally we couldn't wait for them to open their 3rd room which we did last week and IT WAS AMAZING. The owners were nice enough to show us the updates and changes they made since they moved to the new location in Evanston as well. The puzzles were a little easier than their other 2 rooms but still challenging and we were able to escape with just 3 minutes to spare. Definitely recommend checking this room out first at Lock Chicago!Tara
I really enjoyed my experience at Lock Chicago. We did the Malfunction room - it was really challenging for us to even get started).Keith
The staff are kind, the space is clean - I especially appreciated the jellybean dispenser in the front.
I'm going to take off one star entirely for aesthetics of the room - it is very rustic looking as if a high school group had built it for a fundraiser.
But other than that - I'd go back in a heartbeat because of the pure mental challenge provided.
