EscapeHouse Chicago reviews
This is the third escape room company I've been to. We went with a group of friends, some mildly experienced, some brand new. We all had a great time. The game master was incredibly helpful... more »
Fun concepts with multiple clues and fun theme. Good time for team building activity. Escaped with a few min to spare more »
This is the first escape room I have ever gotten to play through, but my partner and I have had a long history and experience playing through escape room games in our childhoods and teenage years which are pretty much the precursor for these. We were a group of five with my sibling (and their partner) and our mom, all of which were not familiar with these type of puzzle games. However, we all had a great time and were suitably challenged and engaged with the little storyline and puzzles (we did the White House mission and succeeded!). The room and game are immersive, the puzzles really encourage critical thinking and teamwork (it also helps to know a little bit of history and trivia), and solving and sussing everything out is satisfying. When the game was explained to us, our "agent" was exceedingly cordial, helpful, and personable. Whenever we needed a hint, the challenges were quite silly, but it was a lovely bit of brevity after all the intensity of having to hunt down clues. We all had a blast.
Went to EscapeHouse this past Friday night with a group of six other people and did the Special Ops escape room. It was definitely an engaging experience and the difficulty level was perfect. The staff was friendly and walked through everything with us beforehand - and of course gave us clues when we needed them throughout our almost hour-long scenario. All in all, it was a fantastic time and the entire group agreed that we would be coming back soon to try some of the other escape rooms!
