Fox in a Box – Chicago brings its newest escape room to your location!   And now with head-to-head play!

Fox in a Box – Chicago is pleased to announce our newest escape room offering with “The Final Exam.”  This room has a few crucial twists from the usual escape room.  First of all, Fox in a Box can bring the action to your location because The Final Exam is portable — all we need is a conference room large enough for 20 people.  Second, The Final Exam provides head to head action for up to 10 players at a time where 5 on 5 will contend for which is the fastest team, assuming that any of them survive.

“Guests have been asking us, ‘can we play the same room against each other?’ since we opened doors two years ago, and we’re thrilled to finally say yes,” according to Fox in a Box – Chicago owner, Vincent Rubino.  “And being able to take these rooms to our corporate clients while still delivering Fox in a Box room quality game is awesome.”

Early beta testers also really love the room.  “The head to head play is really brilliant.  Everyone starts working like a regular escape room, but pretty soon the players realize that they’re not fully cooperative and the whole dynamic changes,” Ryuta Doi, game tester comments.

Where The Final Exam really shines is for larger groups.  Fox in a Box – Chicago can execute a larger scale event at your site by tuning the room to be 30, 45 or 60 minutes long.  This means that Fox in a Box can support a company or division in one day for up to 90 people without leaving your site.  And if you would like to run this all week, they can support up to 450 people.  “We can really help out those organizations who want to do a team-building event but do not want to disrupt their organization’s day or have to deal with transportation logistics,” points out Rubino.

“Best of all, If you are looking for the full Fox in a Box experience, your group can come to our downtown location where we now support up to 35 players at a time.  A group out from University of Chicago loved their visit yesterday” according to Rubino.

What Is an Escape Room?

According to Wikipedia: Real-life room escape games are a type of physical adventure game in which people are "locked" in a room with other participants and have to use elements of the room to solve a series of puzzles, find clues and escape the room within a set time limit.
