Real-life escape room games are a type of physical adventure game perfect for puzzle enthusiasts in which everyone works together to solve a series of puzzles, find clues, and escape the room within 60 minutes. Read on to find out why Escape Artistry is hailed as one of Chicago's best escape rooms to get locked in.
Remember those old, poorly translated browser games from, like, a decade ago? You know, the ones where you're trapped in a room with a screwdriver, a paperclip, and five marbles, and you have to escape in 30 minutes before a bomb goes off or something? You should really play some.SAM GRESZES, Thrillist.com
Finagle Your Escapes Through Different periods of history
Escape Artistry is a Chicago escape room mainstay, for good reason. Their “Railcar" escape room is not just impeccably designed with amazing puzzles but features an honestly great story to boot. Our favorite attraction is the Time Gallery, a collection of five distinct escape rooms, each taking place in a different era of American history. Save the world from nuclear destruction in 1954, take down John Dillinger in 1934, or escape ruthless turn-of-the-century Lake Michigan pirates in 1908. Just be sure to have an array of time puns at the ready when the hosts tell you how long you have left to solve the puzzles.
