    5 star review  This is my first escape room. We did the Sherlock Holmes themed one, and the puzzles were worthy of the consulting detective himself! The hints were just enough to nudge us in the right direction but not make it too easy. The staff was friendly and fun. The room itself was incredibly brilliant, well made, and too much fun. My team escaped with less than 2 minutes to spare! I'll definitely be coming back, and I'm going to recommend Escapade360 to everyone I know!

  • 5 star review  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.

    5 star review  LOVED Escapade 360! The puzzles are great, owners are super friendly, design is very clever. The props were completely unique and even when we did get stuck we were able to get clues that got us back on track. I can't wait to come back and do the second room! We had so, so much fun. Fantastic experience, downtown Elgin is so lucky to have this group!!!

  • 5 star review  This was a really fun, team building experience - great for a group of friends or a small department outing. We went as a group of 3 "old, married" couples (we're in our 40s). It was fun to work together and separately to find clues to the riddles and puzzles to open cabinets, secret chambers. and ultimately, find the key to escape the room. We did manage to escape the room with just the right amount of clues from the game operators delivered via a TV monitor. Sherlock Holmes was a good theme, and I look forward to going back to try the DaVinci Room when it is open. None of our group had done an Escape Room before, but we all plan to try it again! Thank you Escapade 360!

    5 star review  This was our 33rd escape room. I was a little worried visiting a place that had just recently opened but my best friend and I decided to take a chance. GREAT decision! We were greeted by the owner, Keisha. Her engaging personality and excitement for us to do the room immediately put us at ease. Her husband, Dan, arrived and we all talked about our mutual passion for "escapery" and then it was time for the fun to begin. She gave us the rundown of rules, don't force locks, don't climb and hurt yourself, HAVE FUN! No prob for us, we were led to the room and let in and the game began. The room itself was beautiful and very detailed, they had obviously taken their time and put a lot of effort into it. I won't go into a huge amount of detail, you need to go experience this yourself. But some of the things that matter to me as a seasoned escaper were covered. There was a monitor to brief you on your mission which displayed your time and was also used to communicate when needed. The room was well lit, it is a pet peeve of mine to go into a dark room and end up not escaping because you couldn't see things clearly rather than a lack of puzzling skills. There weren't red herrings, many rooms tend to put a ton of extra info around in hopes of throwing you off course. Believe me, I don't need a red herring to veer off course, I can do that all on my own, lol. The puzzles were interesting and fun, and challenging without being frustrating. She gave us just enough hints to nudge us along but only when needed. We escaped with around 13 mins left I think. Truthfully it is never about the escape for us, it is about the experience we had. We had so much fun in this room, discovering and sleuthing and interacting with everything! They earn 5 stars from me with extra kudos for doing such an awesome job coming right out of the gate! Thanks again Keisha and Dan, we wish you the best and can't wait to come back and do your Da Vinci room soon 🙂

    5 star review  The Sherlock Adventure marks my 16th escape room. The puzzles in this room are wonderfully thought out and very logical. The immersion of the room is 5/5. The room's set is done really well and not just particle board and dollar store specials. The game masters seem to be wonderful people and I was lucky enough to be able to chat them up a bit and felt like I left with two new friends that also love puzzles.
