Upon entering the door at 408 S Michigan in Chicago, the group is greeted by a doctor who speaks with a German accent. The doctor instructs everyone to form a semi-circle and asks for tickets. The group peppers him with questions and he answers each one, staying calm and in character. This is a great performance and a great intro for what is to come. After putting on name tags and the rules are told, we are lead into the room. The room is filled with locks, safes, and many other contraptions. While searching for clues, the zombie leaps at us while everyone screams and runs to the other side of the room to escape.
The clues and puzzles include brain teasers, mini arcade games, magic eye, and riddles. At the same time, you must avoid coming into contact with the zombie, whose chain slowly increases in length as the time runs out. It’s incredibly exciting. With only 2 minutes left, we find the 5th and last major clue. We piece together all the major clues to open the last remaining lock. Inside the drawer, there is a key. Only 50 seconds left! We run the key to the door and open the door. 40 seconds remaining! Everyone runs out the door and closes it with only 28 seconds left. Our group was one of the 30% of groups to successfully escape!
