WE ARE ESCAPE ARTISTRY

Escape Artistry is dedicated to producing immersive, imaginative, and innovative room escape games. Guests are given 60 minutes to work together, find the clues, solve the riddle, get the key, and escape. Escape Artistry offers story-driven puzzles that teach you about the world, the people in the room with you, and yourself.

Our room escape games are Chicago original - meaning that each room is handcrafted by local Chicago artisan with custom puzzles you won't find anywhere else. We have a total of 6 games across 2 locations in Wicker Park. Click on a poster below to learn more about each mission.
