“Few months ago I came to Team vs Time Chicago for my first ever escape room. Since then I had played few different escape rooms in Chicago and came back to Team vs Time for their newest game “Save The Queen” and it was awesome! From all the escape games I have played I had my best time solving Team vs Time’s puzzles.”
– Jasiek M., TripAdvisor

“We’ve now done every room at Team vs Time and I can safely say this is one of the better (and more consistent) escape room places in Chicago (our group has done 40+ rooms in Chicago alone). The puzzles here are non-linear, challenging without being impossible, well executed thematically, and satisfying to work through…”
– Tehl3x., TripAdvisor

“This was my first time to an Escape Room…. so I’m only judging on this one experience… but the experience was fantastic. The service was great and they did a great job of explaining the whole process to us. The puzzles and riddles were interesting and challenging.  It was a great time, I think it’s a fantastic way to enjoy an evening with friends.  ”
– Craig J., Yelp

“The Team vs Time (Lost Book of Magic) multi-room escape game experience continually wowed us with its elegant use of technology and clever puzzles to make an ideal, flowing escape room experience!”
– DJ Ford, TripAdvisor

“One of the best-built escape rooms I have ever been to. The puzzles are challenging enough to make you work for it, but not annoyingly intricate to the point of exhaustion. Each mechanical part to the rooms were sturdy, compact, and worked easily. The ambiance of the rooms are well-thought out as well. Mood-specific music is pumped in at good, low volumes. Enough to add to the mood, not enough to make players shout over it.

The staff member we encountered was thorough, knowledgeable, and enthusiastic. Everything needed to gain excitement for an experience like this. All this was on top of being in a great location in the Wicker Park/Bucktown area of Chicago. The price was comparable to most other escape rooms I’ve been to, but since the nuts and bolts were so well done and maintained, it becomes a better deal than most escape rooms. Highly recommended!”
