Prison guards are on the break for one hour and that is your only chance left. Now or never.​ You will have to work as a team and use tools and hints left by previous prisoners who failed to escape on time. And to make matters worse, escaping prison is not the hardest part.

Now you have to race the time and search for the hidden antidote. The key to finding an antidote is your senses. You will have to use them all to stand a chance and make it out alive. You will have to smell, listen and touch in order to find the hidden key to an antidote and solve the mystery of the tavern. Book it now

Witch House

13 people have gone missing in the woods since the last full moon, and you were hired to track one of them down. Victoria Highmeadow, age 19, was last seen foraging for mushrooms on the edge of the woods. Some people spoke of strange, whispered songs in the woods at night. What you thought were old wives tales became all too real as a mysterious lantern light lead you through the fog to a clearing with a single hut with an orange glow at the window. As you enter the cabin, you hear the unmistakable cackle of an old woman in the woods, when the door slams shut. Your only hope now is to solve all the evil witch puzzles before midnight. You have 1 hour left. Let’s see if you can figure out what happened to Victoria, and hope that her fate leads you to freedom. Book it now

You’ve probably heard something about escape rooms by now, but are still not sure exactly what it is. The concept of escape room games started in Japan as the online game “Takagism” In 2007, it was first brought to real life as an escape room game. By 2015, there were over 2,800 escape rooms in the world. Imagine the escape room as one large puzzle made of multiple smaller puzzles, riddles, and clues that you need to solve together with your team. Each escape room has a unique theme and goal. It is also a fantasy. In the game, you become a world traveler, a detective, a bank robber, someone in big trouble, or someone who will save the world from nuclear disaster. The themes and possibilities are endless. The final goal is most often to escape the room but it could be any other fantasy goal (like finding the hidden key to a safe, solving a murder scene, or disarming a bomb) before the one-hour timer runs out. This exciting new concept brings the popular online game into real life and gives players the opportunity to use their wits, teamwork skills, and intelligence to accomplish a unique and challenging task. Escape rooms are often mistakenly assumed to be games for kids, but the reality is that it is fun for all ages. It is often used as a team-building activity for corporate customers, birthday parties, it is a great bachelorette party idea (or bachelor) and other celebrations or events. (Our escape room in Naperville has 3 different rooms and can accommodate up to 26 players at a time.
