During the course of a 60 minute room escape experience at Team vs Time, you and your team will explore unique environments, find interesting objects, and use clues to solve a series of puzzles in an attempt to reach your ultimate objective. Your adventure awaits!
We typically offer at least 3 different event experiences. Each event offers a completely unique team challenge, with a varied theme and level of difficulty. From finding a lost book of magical spells, to unearthing a plot to overthrow the queen, to a period when the mafia ruled the streets, you’re in for a daunting challenge.
“Few months ago I came to Team vs Time 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 games I have played I had my best time solving Team vs Time puzzles.”

“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…”

“We had a BLAST! I’ve never done an escape room before, but it was such a fun experience! Definitely check this out when in Chicago. We live here and so glad we adventured out. Great part of town to visit as well, great reason to come here. Make a night of it. Three different rooms to try with different sizes of groups for all. DO IT!”

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