    5 star review  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.

    5 star review  This was our first time in an Escape Room. We had so much fun. The owners were really nice and the room was challenging but we managed to escape. I loved the way it was set up and was a fun adventure! Definitely recommend for a fun time with a group.

    5 star review  A fun place! The owners are very friendly and helpful. If you've never visited an escape room before, this is a good place to start.

    5 star review  We went to new escape room in Elgin last night. Six newbies with no idea of what to expect or how to play the interactive, clue solving game. Took us a few minutes to get started, but boy did we have a blast! Love the feel of the airport terminal prior to "arriving" in England to help "Sherlock Holmes". Although we worked together, sadly we didn't make it out in time. Oh well. Looking forward to helping "DiVinci" next. Keisha, let us know when the "DiVinci" room opens.
