Special Ops Escape Room in Chicago

    What to Expect
    Located at 42 E. Ontario St., please check in 15-minutes prior to your game start time. Our Special Ops Escape Room is an exciting, immersive game that puts the world on your shoulders. As the closest team of agents in the area, your group has been asked to investigate the Ansar market. The market is closed for the evening and is not known to be a criminal hotspot. However, your “routine check” ends up taking a quick turn and suddenly, the fate of the world rests on your shoulders. With no time to send backup, can you rise to the occasion and save the day?

    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)

    We did this room on a Saturday during a weekend trip to Chicago from St. Louis. We were staying out in the suburbs and didn’t expect the amount of traffic that we encountered and ended up joining the escape about 10 minutes late. They had...More

    I've always wanted to do one of these things, and the experience definitely exceeded my expectations. I felt like I was living in the Legend of Zelda! It's 100% necessary to use teamwork to solve the puzzles, and they were fun to figure out. It...More
