Friends having a great time at Fox in a Box Chicago

Looks like something you'd want to be doing on your birthday?

You and your team ( friends and family members attending the party) will be led into a themed room that’s been set up to simulate (with decor, props and special effects) a special situation.

Once inside the room, you’ll have to accomplish certain objectives by solving puzzles, spotting clues, and executing tasks. All of that, before your time - 60 minutes - runs out.

For example, in our escape room The Bunker, you’ll enter a space that’s been set up like a real-life military bunker, and your mission is to prevent a catastrophic nuclear weapons launch within 60 minutes.

That sounds awesome! But, will the others at the party like it?

The entire team working together to beat an escape game!

Our escape room adventures are awesome. And yes, everyone at your Fox in a Box Chicago birthday party will LOVE it.

Let me put it another way. Our escape rooms are built to be shared experiences that draw every single person in the team to actively take part in the game.

Anything can happen in our escape rooms. The combination of thrilling storylines and missions, highly immersive room decor, challenging puzzles, and great special effects will keep everyone on their toes.

There’s not going to be a single person that’s standing in a corner, yawning or brooding over their phones.

The escape games are also designed to give everyone - with different skill sets or none - a role. Someone’s good at observing stuff and spotting items that are ‘hidden in plain sight’, and so on? They have a role to play.

Someone’s good at communicating with other people? They have a role to play.

Someone’s good at simply encouraging others? They have a role to play - a very important one.
