Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I cannot say enough good things about The Escape Game Chicago! My 13 year old son and I booked the Mars Room during a short trip to the city last Friday, and were the only ones there on a winter morning. The staff was welcoming, professional and friendly, and got us started right away. I love that this place offers unlimited hints, and they clarified first HOW we would like hints - only on request, or also when they noticed us struggling. We said to hint whenever, and the hints they gave us throughout the game were just helpful enough to poke us in the right direction without taking the joy of discovery away from us. The Mars room was great for two people - it's pretty linear so we worked together to solve all the puzzles. We've done a few other rooms in other places, and these puzzles seemed more creative than most - not repeating the same kind over and over again. The room was really immersive and intense (but not scary), with multiple rooms and lots of audio and visual elements.
Once we finished, we actually left the building, walked down the block, and then impulsively went BACK to try another room (plus you get 40% off for doing a second room!). We loved the Gold Rush room even more - very cool world-building, awesome visuals, incredibly creative puzzles, multiple rooms, challenging enough but also solvable for the two of us.
The best part of our experience was by far the wonderful staff - they were so kind and enthusiastic, and they even made me a cup of coffee when I mentioned being under-caffeinated - I honestly could have cried with gratitude the moment the timer stopped on the room and the door popped open to a staffer holding out a mug and offering me a "coffee break." We were visiting for my son's birthday and they made a very big deal of it - he has told everyone we've seen since then about it!
