Very good venue for teaming events! Great service/friendly staff! We broke out into teams of 6 (smaller team would have been better) but it allowed our large group to experience the challenge at the same time.

Downtown / The Loop
Often visitors' first stop in Chicago, The Loop is a
good starting point to sample the city's energy and
flavor. This central business district boasts
Michelin-rated restaurants, upscale hotels, premier
shopping, and enough arresting architecture to keep
your camera busy for hours. You won’t find too many
photo galleries of downtown Chicago without a shot of
Millennium Park and Cloud Gate (“The Bean”), one of

We have just completed a reorganization of all of our rooms with additions, removals and changes to some of the puzzles. We are now proud to say that we allow 6 players as a standard.
