Chicago Escape Rooms Are Once Again Open For Business

Chicago Escape Rooms Are Once Again Open for Business

Escape Artistry was featured on My Chicago Podcast! Read the article and listen to the interview, by Carrie Rubin here.

Escape rooms across Chicago say they’re ready for customers. For those unfamiliar, groups pay to be locked in a small room, where they must solve puzzles together and use various props to exit.

Regardless of the new health & safety protocols, escape room owners said the core experience hasn’t changed.

At Escape Artistry, owner Maren Rosenberg , said she’s not interested in virtual rooms. She said since her escape rooms are heavily story-driven, the atmosphere would be lost digitally. “We just don’t feel like at least at this point, we can do it elegantly enough to make it worthwhile and we want to make sure people get the full immersive experience,” Rosenberg said.

But, no matter the format customers choose, she said supporting one of the local escape rooms helps all of them. “It’s very much like a rising tide lifts all ships. We all have a vested interest in everyone’s products being really good because if someone loves my escape rooms, they can only play six,” Rosenberg said. “But then I can go ’Oh, go over and check out what they’re doing at Fox in a Box.”
