"Best Money Spent In Chicago!"

The kids were so happy with the first experience that we immediately booked another one a half an hour later. We did both the game room and the library which are the scavenger hunt version and it was perfect for the kids. Best money we’ve spent in Chicago so far!!! Thank you!!!!
