Elmhurst Escape Room

We are a uniquely family-friendly escape room with the ability to adjust the challenge level of our puzzles to meet your party’s needs. Elementary school children love our immersive, interactive puzzles and seasoned escape room veterans can request mind-bending cryptic clues. You and your team have 60 minutes to untangle the evidence, draw conclusions, and defy the odds to claim your victory. If you’re ready to start the clock, book now!

Rooms are limited to 2-10* participants and are private bookings at this time. In other words, your group will not be paired with strangers to fill a room. Walk-in groups may have availability but online reservations are highly encouraged. Children younger than age 14 MAY NOT be alone in our escape rooms and must be accompanied by a paid adult.

*2-10 players for Save Sherlock! and 2-8 players for Adventurers’ Tavern

Our Escape Rooms

Save Sherlock!

To the esteemed colleagues of Sherlock Holmes,
It would seem that the rumors of my death are greatly exaggerated and your detective has found himself in a rather precarious situation. If your powers of observation and deduction are truly keen then you’ll be able to find the code that can save him. Prove yourself to me and I will release him, you have my word.
-Professor Moriarty

Difficulty: Standard.

Adventurer’s Tavern

What happens when the monster is coming but the heroes don’t have their weapons? Gather your party and take on the puzzles that have rouges and wizards alike scratching their heads in confusion. Once you’ve found your tools, challenge the creature in a battle that bards will sing about for ages to come!

Difficulty: Standard.
