New Rooms at Lock Chicago!

After 16 months of business Lock Chicago is excited to announce our 3rd and 4th Escape Rooms coming summer of 2017! We are expanding to a new space in Evanston which will allow for 2 additional rooms with up to 8 players each and construction beginning next month.

Interested in Beta Testing? Send us an email at or visit our website at and we will be sure to include you when we send out invitations!

Have no fear as we will still be continuing to host players at our “Sunburn” and “Malfunction” rooms so if you haven’t had a chance to play both or either it will still be available as we expand and we look forward to hosting you in the near future.

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.
