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 13 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 Captain’s Quarters

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.

Captain’s Quarters

Pirates assemble! Captain Mayhem stole your treasure and you’re going to steal it back! You’ve snuck into his pirate ship only to discover that he’s hidden the keys behind several riddles and puzzles. Are you savvy enough to reclaim your treasure before he returns and makes you walk the plank?

Difficulty: Advanced.
