About Escape Factor

Locally Owned

We’re not one of those multi-million dollar escape room chains. We’re a minority-owned small business, integrated with the community, working with multiple Chamber of Commerce groups and frequently donating to local organizations! We’re proud to be serving the Forest Park and Oak Park areas.


Our escape rooms are about completing your mission in a fun and safe way. You are never actually locked in any of our rooms, allowing for easy exit in case of emergencies. Plus, most of our rooms are pretty large so they won’t make you feel claustrophobic!

Playing it Safe

Escape Factor is committed to following strict guidelines to provide a safe and healthy experience for you and your guests. Private rooms, staggered performance times to support social distancing, HEPA filters and a robust sanitizing procedure ensure you play in a clean environment.
