Congratulations to the winners of our first Escape Challenge Tournament!

A big shout out and thanks to the other 19 teams who participated in the tournament but didn't make the top five. Check back next year as we'll likely have more escape rooms participating!


Prizes:

Because there was a tie for first place, we will be giving out the following prizes:

  • First Place: $200 and 2 free tickets to each of the four rooms for both teams (Geri's Kids and Harben Ssano)
  • Second Place: Hidden Key T-Shirts and a high-five for a job well done (We Thought This Was Speed Dating)

One of the room owners will be in touch with someone from the winning teams to coordinate receiving the prizes.

About the Tournament

Welcome to the inaugural Escape Challenge Tournament! This room escape tournament will be sure to test even a seasoned escaper's skills. Assemble your team, complete at least three of the four rooms participating in the tournament, and if you have one of the top three scores, you can win cash prizes, free tickets, and more!

The escape rooms participating in the tournament are all located in the western suburbs of Chicago, but anybody or any team can participate.

This tournament is a great way for you as players to show off your skills and experience new rooms in the Chicagoland area. Check out the tournament rules and the participating rooms below and hopefully we'll see you for the Escape Challenge Tournament!

Tournament Rules

Basic Rules

  • Teams must consist of 8 or fewer players
  • Tournament runs July 1 - September 30, 2016. Rooms must be completed by the end of September.
  • You or your team may have completed one of the rooms already. Simply let us know which room you've done and when and we'll record the time you had as part of the tournament.
  • If you book less than all 8 spots, and are paired up with other players, your time will still count towards the tournament.

Scoring

Each room will rank all the teams who have completed the room for the tournament by their times. Be sure to have a team name so we can keep track! The scoring will be as follows:

  • Your score will be the rank that you escaped, compared to all other teams who finished the room.
  • If you didn't escape, your score will be the lowest rank plus 5 points.
  • If you did not complete a room within the time frame, your score will be the lowest rank plus 15 points.
  • Only the lowest 3 scores of each team will be counted.
  • You're trying to get the lowest score possible!

Prizes

First Place
$400 cash to the winning team - plus bragging rights until the next tournament.

Second Place
Gift cards for two free tickets at all of the four participating escape rooms.

Third Place
A high five and a t-shirt from Hidden Key Escapes because they're the only one with t-shirts.
