The Heist Escape Room in Chicago

    What to Expect
    Located at 42 E. Ontario St., please check in 15-minutes prior to your game start time. The Heist Escape Room is an exciting, immersive game that involves an all-time favorite: the art heist. Get ready for an exciting challenge of beating a thief at his own game. A famous piece of artwork has gone missing and it is up to your covert team to recover the invaluable masterpiece. If you succeed in your mission you will become national heroes! If you fail, you will be treated as a common criminal by the authorities. Good Luck!

    Here’s how it works: You and your team are locked in a room and have one hour to complete a mission and escape. Escaping will require teamwork, quick thinking, determination and a sense of urgency. From the moment you step into your game, you'll be totally immersed in our world.

    Each game is designed for 60-minutes of intense fun! Plan to spend 15-minutes prior to each game preparing for your mission, and 15-minutes after each game to debrief and take photos.  Perfect for everyone from families to thrill seekers to corporate groups, our intensely energetic games and enthusiastic customer service will turn your hour of gameplay into a lifelong memory.

    Parking is very limited in downtown Chicago. There are paid garages nearby, but we recommend grabbing a taxi, using a ride-share service, or walking when possible.(42 E. Ontario St., Chicago, IL 60611)
