Things to do in Chicago 2017-11-13T09:38:52+00:00


As you can imagine with Chicago being the 3rd biggest city in the United States in terms of population there are plenty of things to do.

The city plays host to over 570 parks, 31 sand beaches, 50 nature areas and a plethora of museums. However with so many options it doesn’t matter if you are a tourist from out of town or a local Chicagoan planning a staycation it can be difficult to make a decision on what to see and do.

Some of Chicago’s highlights include:

Chicago Theatre

Navy Pier

Willis Tower

Wrigley Field

If you are looking for something outside of the norm then you should be looking at one of the hottest new attractions in Chicago – Escapades Escape Games.

We have a variety of Escape Games available, with particular themes for each. In general, escape room games consist of a team of individuals who need to find clues and solve puzzles in order to “escape” before the time runs out. The more time ticks down, the more pressure and ultimately the more excitement. Whilst you won’t actually be trapped in a room, for safety reasons, our theming and story makes for a very believable and immersive experience.

Unique Chicago Experiences

Our Apartment 1145 escape game is based on one of the original and we believe the best escape room concepts. You find yourself locked inside the apartment with just 60 minutes to find the key and make your escape! The Apartment 1145 escape game is available for up to twelve people, and is an excellent choice if you’re looking for things to do in Chicago; whether team-building activities or something extra on your vacation.

Our Chi-Gate game is another unique take on traditional escape games. Inspired by the infamous Watergate scandal you and your friends get your opportunity to break into the DNC, tap the phones, place bugs, photograph top secret details and shred the documents relating to Nixon.
