Mandatory Proof of Vaccination

The City of Chicago has implemented a vaccine requirement for bars, restaurants, and certain entertainment venues. As we are dedicated to keeping our staff, guests, and community safe, Escape Artistry will be following this mandate. We are now requiring all patrons 5 years and over to show proof of vaccination before playing with us.

We will accept the following as proof of vaccination:

  • Physical vaccination card
  • Photograph of vaccination card
  • Digital record from vaccine provider
  • Printed record from vaccine provider

All forms of proof must be accompanied by a valid ID with matching names.

We will allow for medical and/or religious exemption, but this needs to be communicated to us with a minimum of 24-hour notice before the scheduled game time. If an unvaccinated guest arrives at our facility without first notifying us of their exemption status, they will not be allowed to participate.

What does this mean for other COVID policies?

Given the continued prevalence of the Delta and Omicron variants, as well as the possibility of breakthrough infections, guests are still required to wear masks at our facility in common areas and when staff members are present.

Teams are welcome to remove their masks when alone on their mission, but only after our staff members have left the room.

If someone in your team has forgotten their mask, we have reusable fabric face masks available for purchase at our front desk. We will continue to take temperatures upon entry and request that all guests sanitize their hands before and after each mission.

Please remember that our Mission Specialists are enforcing these policies to keep both you and themselves safe. If you have any questions about these policies, you may reach out to management at

To all Time Travelers: thanks for your continued cooperation. We understand that these changes can be jarring, but we also know that the best course of action is one that serves to protect everyone who enters our doors.

Stay safe, Escape Artists.
