CluedIn is located 20 minutes west of Chicago in Glen Ellyn Illinois. Our Escape Rooms feature immersive stories and themes to entertain and challenge you and your friends.
Ever want to be in a real life video game, or star in your own movie or book? In an escape room you are the main characters. You’ll battle against the room’s devious puzzles as part of the story. Escape rooms are the newest form of interactive entertainment.
Escape Rooms are a live action game for groups of up to 8 people. When you enter the escape room you will be surrounded by a variety of puzzles, riddles, and games. You’ll then have and hour to solve them in a particular order to “escape” from the room. Escape rooms are a great alternative to a night out, or a great way to start your night! Escape rooms also make great group and team building activity.
CONTACT US for more information.
When you and your friends enter the escape room, you’ll have to use your wits and teamwork to solve the puzzles, riddles, and games towards a common goal. Each challenge you solve in the escape room will unlock the next step, further the story, and put you one step closer to your goal. We never lock you in, so there will always be an open door, but leave too.
ESCAPE ROOM FAQS
Q: How much are the games, and how long do they last?
A: Prices vary. Monday through Thursday games start at $25.50* a person, Friday through Sunday $29.50* a person. Private games cost a little more per person, and are on a sliding scale. The more people you bring, the less it costs. All games last an hour, but hopefully you’ll get out before then! (*price is after taxes and fees, and may vary slightly)
Q: What’s the difference between public and private games?
A: When booking a public game, you may be joined by other groups. This is great for new players who may want a little extra help. Private games cost more, but you are guarenteed the room to youself. The more people you book for a private game, the less you pay. If you fill all the slots, or one short, it will be the same price as a public game per person.
Q: Are we really locked in?
A: Yes and no. Each room will have one unlocked door. You can leave through this door for an emergency, but you only win if you can solve all the puzzles and fulfill the games win condition.
Q: When should I arrive for my game? Do I need to bring anything?
A: We recommend arriving at least 5 minutes prior to your game, to use the restroom and sign a waiver. You can sign the waiver here beforehand to save some time. Games will start at the exact starting time and once the door is closed, no one can enter. Being late could cause you to miss your game. No refunds are given for late arrivals.
Q: How many people can play?
A: Each game has a different number of players.
Our Game Master game needs a minimum of 4 players, and a max of 8. Up to 10 can play if you call us first.
Our Asylum game needs a minimum of 2 players and a max of 6.
Our Double Agent game needs a minimum of 2 players to a max of 8.
Keep in mind that the more players you have, the more brainpower you have, thus the more chance you have of escaping.
Q: Will I be playing with strangers?
A: That depends on the pricing option you choose. Public games means you may be paired with other groups up to the maximum number of players. This is a good option for smaller groups who may not have played before. Private games cost a little more, but will always just be your group. (see above)
Q: Is it possible to play with just my friends?
A: Yes, you can reserve a private game for slightly more per person cost. (see above)
Q: What if I we want to bring more players than the game holds?
A: Give us a call! We can arrange for some of our games to fit more than the max suggested.
Q: What if we don’t escape?
A: Don’t worry, we’ll come get you.
Q: What do we get if we do escape?
A: Bragging rights! Plus we’ll take your picture for our escapee page.
Q: Can I change my date or time after I have booked in the system?
A: Yes. We can change it, but only to an available time on an available date.
Q: Can I cancel my booking?
A: Sorry! All sales are final, but we will help you find another date and time.
Q: What is the age limit?
A: The rooms are built for adults, though we find that players 10 and up accompanied by an adult do well. Players must be 14 years old or older to play by themselves. However, Guests under 16 must have a parent/legal guardian sign their waiver. Guests under 14 must be accompanied by an Adult 18 years old or older.
Q: How long is each game?
A: Each game is designed for one hour. There is a short introduction and pictures will be taken after. Plan to stay for a total of an hour and 15 minutes.
Q: This sounds like the perfect thing to have a few drinks before. Is that a good idea?
A: You’ll want to have your wits about you. Since players are responsible for any intentional damage to the room, make sure no one gets angry when they drink.
Q: What can we bring in with us?
A: No food or drink may be brought in. You cannot use cell phones, keys, pens, or similar items while in the room, and the game will be stopped if any of these items are used. There are places to place your belongings in each game.
