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.
This was the 2nd escape room I did at Lock Chicago's location in Evanston and one of my favorite rooms in the area! I went with my coworkers last month and did their Sunburn room which we loved so I came back with my family to try Matsuri and it did not disappoint. It was slightly easier than Sunburn was but we were still able to escape with 2 minutes to spare. Conveniently located right in downtown Evanston I work at Northwestern so it made it super easy to check these guys out. Highly recommend!Emily
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
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
