Who Enjoys Escape Rooms?
An escape room is the perfect start to a fun evening. Escape the room, then escape to dinner and drinks!
Successful escape artists come in all ages — from teenagers to grandparents and everything in between.
Even though we didn't "escape", we had a lot of fun working, laughing and celebrating when we found clues. We are looking forward to conquering the DaVinci room.

This was our first experience in an escape room and we found it very exciting. Located in downtown Elgin in a beautiful historic building, it was easy to find parking and wasn't a difficult drive from the north side of Chicago. Our watchful game master, Keisha, chatted with us to determine our skill level and make it enjoyable. We asked for just enough hints so that we could understand how to interact with the objects in the room and in no time we were solving puzzles and uncovering clues on our own. While some were mentally challenging, everything could be accomplished by our group of three players and the "Ah ha!" moments we experienced were amazing. The decor, items in the room and the ambient sound effects really made us feel like we were in the English countryside tracking the whereabouts of Sherlock Holmes. Everything was very professionally put together and several moments felt like we were part of a magician's act as our actions triggered movements and reactions from items across the room. This is an experience that you absolutely must try to fully appreciate it. We will definitely return to try additional rooms as they are opened and we even plan to revisit the Sherlock Holmes room to share the magic with friends and family who visit us from other states.

If you love escape rooms that have intricate details and puzzles that aren't too hard or too easy, check this place out! Great staff, great rooms, great location. I almost thought the elevator ride up to their suite was the start of the room. I've done both of their rooms and had a blast each time. I can't wait until they start new rooms.
