D.O.A's escape rooms are as real as they get; we don't make things up here.

Our escape room themes are based on real life historical events, which means lots of blood, sweat and tears (maybe actual blood, sweat and tears) go into making our rooms as historically accurate as possible.

THE GARAGE

The St. Valentine's Day Massacre took place in what was a garage at 2122 N. Clark Street in Chicago on February 14, 1929, during the heyday of the Prohibition Era. Seven men of the North Side Irish gang were shot execution style, allegedly by the South Side Italian mob and notorious gangster, Al Capone. You are transported back to the gruesome crime scene, along with clues of all the events that transpired that fateful night. 

Think you can outsmart the ultimate mob by solving your way out? It must be done quickly before Al Capone's men arrive to take out the new competition - YOU!

THE BASEMENT

During the 1893 Chicago World's Fair, criminal mastermind and first documented serial killer H.H. Holmes built and operated a labyrinth-style hotel on the corner of South Wallace & 63rd Street. It was designed as a killing trap, whereby his guests became murder victims - allegedly over 200. The basement of that hotel was where most of the killings, torture and burials took place. 

Do you have what it takes to match wits with the evil Doctor Holmes? The secrets of his dark and foreboding lair need to be discovered before you become his next medical experiment!
