Escape Artistry - The Railcar


A futuristic CTA themed train built out of recycled and repurposed materials. A comic book style villain is sending your train flying down the tracks. BUT! You notice clues hidden all throughout the car. You and your group have to solve puzzles to stop the train and save the city.

You will never look at a train the same way again after immersing yourself in the world of The Railcar.  What starts off as a typical commute quickly becomes a race against time.

You and nine of your friends must solve the puzzles, crack the codes, and stop the train to save yourselves from certain disaster. You have 60 minutes to escape! Do you have what it takes?
