    I had so much fun! I completed the Zodiac room and escaped! Definitely tricky, but my group’s GameMaster, Alahna, was awesome! Definitely recommend and totally worth the money! Happy B-Day Alahna!

    This was my family's second visit to Paniq and my first time. We've been to other escape rooms and this one has ambience and flair! Jim was particularly kind as our guide. We're excited to return again! We're going to try all the rooms. It's that good.

    3 of us did the "Infirmary: Surgical Crisis" escape room @ 160 E Grand Ave in Chicago and it was the best escape room (out of many we have done) ever. Pretty much all we talked about afterwards at dinner was how much fun it was, the interaction among us, the creativity of the challenges, etc. We highly recommend it.

    We had a great time in both the onyx room and wizard trials. I would say the wizard trials was a touch too short for the two experienced escape room players my wife and I are, having done about 70 rooms each, but probably would be a great beginner room. Both had high tech and overall pretty good puzzles. The service was also great by Alister, and would definitely recommend. Only complaint would be too many intentional trial and error puzzles as those aren’t very fun or challenging. My wife and I gave the rooms 6.5/10 but that is on a very strict scale with only the best in the world getting 9s or 10s.

    My daughter and I did a NYC escape room nine years ago for my birthday -that was fun, but this was better! The clues for Chicago’s Fulton Market Escapely were challenging, but not too challenging. And if you get stuck, there are good hints. The clues give you a chance to explore the neighborhood. It is a very cool neighborhood. What a great way to spend a fall afternoon- exercising both mind and body with my daughter! Couldn’t ask for a better birthday present!

    They were so great, especially our game master, Katie. We have played rooms (30+) all over the country but this was one of our favorites! Some unique touches and Katie gave us just enough hints (only when we asked which we prefer and requested). We escaped as the clock timed out! Would 100% recommend!

    My volunteer organization had an event here. I’m 72 so I had no idea what this was and didn’t expect to participate. Was I wrong! The staff was very helpful in explaining everything and helping beginners get started. They have many types of games and experiences for all ages and levels. Our group included all ages from 8 up and everyone had a great time. I played twice and loved attacking the zombies with my sword!
    They serve soft and alcoholic drinks and simple snacks. Street parking was easy. I’d definitely go back, but you’d need at least two people for maximum fun.
