Answers to common questions below...

1. Why do I want to do this?

This is the newest and most exciting entertainment concept in years! It is way more fun than the other things you usually do. It’s a great date night activity too. Nothing  beats the heart pounding excitement of attempting to escape the room before time runs out!

2. How much does it cost?

The 60 minute rooms are $29 per person. We have 40-45 minute rooms that are $18 per person and 20 minute rooms that are just $10 per person. 

3. How many people can enter a room?

The Office is  optimized for 6 players. You may book as many as 8  (10 for team building activities) or you can book as few as 1 if you are booking in with an existing group. The minimum occupancy is 2. To book a team building event for more than 8, book 8 online and then call us at 630-894-9300. If  you book 8 players the room is considered full, and no other players will be booked into your time slot. If you book less than 8, other players may book in on your time slot and play with your group. Think of this as great minds coming together!  The Lab is optimized for 8 players. You may book as many as 10  (12 for team building activities) or you can book as few as 1 if you are booking in with an existing group. The minimum occupancy is 4.  To book a team building event for more than 10, book 10 online and then call us at 630-894-9300. If  you book 10 players the room is considered full and no other players will be booked into your time slot. If you book less than 10, other players may book in on your time slot and play with your group.  With a minimum of 4 players you may book a private event for a small upcharge. Our 20-45 minute rooms are always private regardless of number of players booked.

4. Is there a minimum number of players?

Yes. The minimum number of players is 2 in The Office and 4 in The Lab.  The rooms are optimized for more players. Less than 4 players will make it EXTREMELY challenging to escape in 60 minutes. Please consider this when booking your time slot. There is no minimum number of players in  20-45 minute rooms.

5. What if we have fewer than 8 or 10 players but want the room to ourselves?

If you want the private rooms are available for just $4 more per person, minimum 4 players. When booking, in the “options” section you must check “Private event” box to book entire activity. Pricing will be adjusted automatically. 20 minute rooms have no minimum (solo if you like) and are always private.

6. Can I cancel if something comes up?

Cancellations are not possible, but if your time slot won’t work for you, call us 7 days prior to your scheduled game and we will be happy to reschedule your group. 630-894-9300

7. Can someone else come in my place?

Yes, just send the new players your confirmation email so that they know where to go, when to arrive, and where to fill out their waivers in advance.

8. Do I need a reservation?

No, walk-ins are fine but chances are the 60 minute rooms would be booked. The 20, 40 and 45 minute room would probably have better availability on a walk-in basis.

9. How long will I be there?

Plan on being here for 90 minutes. Arrive 15 minutes early to go over the rules, tips, tricks, and hints. The game is 60 minutes and afterword you will want to spend 15 minutes debriefing and having your photo taken.

10. What if we're late?

The rooms run on a strict schedule. If you arrive late you will still need to go over the rules. However many minutes, past your scheduled time, that you enter the room – that many minutes will be deducted from your 60 minutes. We apologize for the necessity of this policy, but late arrivals impact the next party.

11. Is there an age limit?

No. Players 14 or younger must be accompanied by a parent or guardian 21  years old or older for the one hour rooms. Players 14 through 17 must have a waiver signed by a parent or guardian. The 60 minute rooms are geared towards adults and teens. The 20 minute room is somewhat more suitable for preteens, but all of our rooms are designed to be challenging, even for adults. Players may be of any age in our 20 minute rooms. Players 3 years old and younger are free of charge.

12. What should I bring?

Bring your brain and your friends. No personal items are allowed in the rooms. Your phones, cameras, keys, lighters, etc. will be locked up in  the room with you. Ladies, please no large purses. Don’t forget your reading glasses!  Wear comfortable clothes.

13. Where should I park?

Park on the lower level near the Round 1 amusement center entrance near Sears. There is a very large bowling pin near this entrance.

14. What happens if our group doesn't escape in 60 minutes?

You and your group will be fed to the lions. JK, but you will quite possibly have had 60 minutes of the most exciting, adrenaline filled, heart pounding, just plain FUN you’ve had in years. A debriefing and fun filled photo session will follow.

15. What happens if our group does escape?

Brag, Brag, Brag.  There will be a fun filled photo session and you may add your legendary names to the Wall of Master Minds. Your game will be timed.

16. Can I play the same room twice?

Yes, as long as your group is aware that you have done the room and you have reserved the entire room, but you and your group will not be eligible to beat the record.

17. Do you do special events?

Yes. Call us about team challenges, team-building, birthdays, engagements, anniversaries, company parties, etc.  We also offer our “interview room” put your potential hires through our 20 minute room at your location. Learn more in 20 minutes than you would in weeks on the job. Ask about personalized clues. We also have gift certificates.

18. Sounds like it would be even more fun after a few drinks?

The game requires a clear, sharp mind and the ability to focus on clues and puzzles. Please come sober and be ready to do your most amazing investigative work!

19. What if I just want to watch?

Sorry, we do not have a viewing area. If you wish to watch from inside the room, all entrants are required to pay the same admission.

20. What if I have a question that wasn't answered here?

Please email us at escaperoombloomingdale@gmail.com or call us at 630-894-9300.

21. That was the coolest, most fun thing I've done in years. Now what?

Visit one of our other rooms for more great FUN and tell all your friends they need to have this much fun. Please do not reveal the secrets of the rooms though. Let them enjoy it as much as you did.

22. Sorry, no photos or videos are allowed to be taken in our rooms.

Team building

Engaging, interactive, fun, team building experiences can build trust, mitigate conflicts, increase collaboration, encourage improved communication, improve morale, and build lasting bonds between participants. This is an important investment in your team and the more fun and exciting the experience, the more they will take away from it. Escaping together offers a unique way for your team to get to better know, understand, and respect one another in a fun environment.

We offer team building at our facility or yours. We have an entertainment facility across the hall that includes: Bowling, Billiards, Ping Pong, Darts, Video Games, and Karaoke rooms (a nice lounge to meet in, the karaoke is optional). This is a great place to go after to continue the fun, or to entertain those that are waiting to enter the rooms for larger groups. There are several restaurants in and around the mall to cater to your dining needs.

Employee Screening

Hiring new employees? We can help screen individuals at any point in the hiring or promotion process. Its hard to know if you have found the right candidate. After just a few minutes in our room, candidates forget about the cameras and begin to reveal things that often take months to learn in a real world environment. Using our screening services you will learn: How well they follow instructions, their organizational skills, how they perform under pressure, temperament, and you can observe their problem solving and critical thinking skills. You can send people to us and view the footage later, you can sit in with us and watch live, or we can bring the event to you.
