Escape Rooms are a live action game for groups of up to 6 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.

When you visit CluedIn Escape Rooms in Glen Ellyn you’ll be treated to an unique experience, created by someone with a passion for the escape room genre. We’ll be offering a variety of themes for your group to enjoy. From the psychological thriller of “The Asylum” to the whimsical “Game Master.” Our games are perfect for any level of experience.

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.


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 fits up to 8.
Our Asylum and Rise of The Game Master fit up to 6.
The minimum for all games is 2 players. 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 size of your group. If you bring less than the maximum players to a room it may be filled with other groups. More players means more fun, and you might just make some new friends in the process!

Q: Is it possible to play with just my friends?

A:  Yes, you can reserve a private game.  There is a small fee for reserving a private game. Please contact us for details.

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. 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.
