  • 60 to Escape
    The rules here are so simple that they're laid out right in the business's name: 60 to Escape. Small groups of friends, family members, or coworkers are locked in a room, where they have only an hour to use problem-solving skills and teamwork to escape. Players can select from a variety of scenarios here. Read on to learn more about them: Bomb Squad: You're part of an elite bomb-defusing team, and you learn that someone has planted an explosive in a popular hotel. Can you find and diffuse it before the last second ticks away? Breakout: You've been framed for a crime you didn't commit, and now you're stuck in jail. Chances are good that you'll never get out on appeal, so it's up to you to escape before the guards catch on. Containment: There's a secret government containment facility hidden in an old warehouse. Unfortunately, the power just went out, and it's up to your team to prevent whatever's contained inside from getting out. Museum: A local museum just got a billion-dollar artifact as part of a new exhibit. Along with a group of experienced thieves, it's up to you to get in, nab the treasure, and get out before you're caught.

  • Rink Side Sports & Family Entertainment Center
    Tip-toeing around black columns illuminated with rings of neon, players catch and zap friends the second they show themselves under the fluorescent light's glow. This happens every day inside Rink Side Sports' 2,000-square-foot Laser Blast arena, which accommodates up to 20 players per match. Just outside that arena, an arcade erupts in a cacophony of bells and whistles emanating from more than 100 video and redemption games. Nearby on the ice rink, ice is carved during public skating hours and kids master the triple Lutz during figure-skating programs led by experienced instructors, many of whom belong to the Professional Skaters Association. These activities all exist under one roof, as well as a 2,700-square-foot 18-hole black-light mini-golf course and a snack bar, which serves hand-tossed pizzas that can be tossed by hand into eaters’ mouths.

  • Pump It Up Party Chicago
    Pump It Up's indoor arenas are filled with huge inflatables and interactive attractions.

Ask about the Glow experience—a kid favorite. The colorful venue also hosts custom birthday parties and private team parties, each themed to please the partygoers in question. These soirees immerse children in a schedule of interactive activities befitting a pirate or a superhero. The birthday boy or girl even gets to blow out the candles on their cake seated in their blow-up throne. Relying on the staffers' vigilant, watchful eyes, guardians can rest assured that their children will be safe, and each piece of the inflatable playground is held to the floor by a complex series of anchors installed according to strict safety standards.

  • Mobile Room Escape
    Professor Von Solace was once a world-renowned neuroscientist—now, he's a global danger, after a lab explosion turned him into an angry recluse. In the years since the incident, he's been manufacturing a lethal neurochemical, and groups brave enough to enter Mobile Room Escape are tasked with finding and destroying said chemical. As the company's name suggests, escape rooms come in the form of a climate-controlled 32-foot luxury trailer designed specifically for the game. That game lasts one hour, during which teams will sift through clues, riddles, puzzles, and obstacles (some real, some red herrings) in order to solve the mystery.
