A thrilling experience shared with your near and dear ones. That’s what Halloween’s all about, isn’t it?
What sets Halloween apart?
- Spooky decor all over the house and garden
- Candies for the children going ‘trick or treat!’
- Everybody taking time out of their busy schedules to get together
And it is these very qualities that make Fox in a Box Chicago the perfect Halloween destination.
It’s a thrilling experience
You are led into a room.
You need to overcome the obstacles in your path and find a way out.
You have 60 minutes to escape the room.
Could things get any more gripping?
If you want really spooky, you should try out our ‘Zodiac’ escape room.
Fox in a Box Chicago adds: Please note that, due to the nature of the game, only players aged 18 or higher are allowed to play ‘Zodiac’.
You need to get ‘down and dirty’
This is as different from wolfing down chips in front of the TV or getting drunk at bars as it gets.
Inside each escape room, there are riddles that need to be unraveled and tasks that need to be accomplished.
You will need to get ‘down and dirty’. Think logically. Analyze the situation. And come up with creative solutions.
Fox in a Box Chicago adds: Being ‘under the influence’ does not mix well with an escape experience. We get that being ‘under the influence’ may be part of the festivities but you are strongly encouraged to do all that after your escape.
If we understand you to be excessively ‘under the influence’ you may be asked to leave.
You need to team up with your near and dear ones
With our busy work schedules, social media apps keeping us glued to our phones and a whole host of other worries and distractions, modern society is becoming more and more disjointed.
Halloween is one of those days when you plan on breaking out of that shell, getting together and having a fun time with the family.
And an escape room is always a team effort.
The team needs to work together, communicate effectively and respect each other’s strengths and weaknesses in order to win.
This provides an incredible opportunity for people to bond with each other while having a thrilling time.
You can gift an escape
Set a new trend.
Instead of handing out candy, gift escape experiences to the trick or treaters. You can personalize the certificates, print them out and deliver them by hand.
Breaking into a bank or breaking out of a prison will certainly strike a chord with the children.
And why only children? You can gift escape experience to adults as well.
A Fox in a Box gift certificate can be the perfect way to kick-start the season of giving.
Fox in a Box Chicago adds: Children as young as 7 have been able to take part in our escape rooms. However, we do need the presence of some adults along with the children. For more information, please consult the frequently asked questions.
Suitable for office and corporate events
Thinking of organizing an office event on Halloween? Halloween day out?
Escape rooms are a great bet for office events.
First, they are a riveting experience which is perfect for a Halloween event.
Second, they help people come together and bond over the common challenge of having to find a way to escape before time runs out.
Third, they encourage clear communication among the team while instilling acceptance of responsibility, leadership and resolving disagreements quickly and logically in individual team members.
In short, it has a powerful positive impact on the dynamic of the entire team.
Fox in a Box Chicago adds: We have a partnership with Bar Louie to arrange open bar and food packages if you want to spice things up further.
And you can also have someone from HR sit in with our game master and observe the teams in action to gain insight into team dynamics.
We do allow walk-ins but it would be at your own risk, especially on a holiday like Halloween.
If you want to make Chicago’s premier escape room your destination on this Halloween, you should book your escape as early as possible.
