RACE AGAINST TIME
After introductions… it’s up to you to beat the clock! You will have 60 minutes to complete your mission through solving various tasks and puzzles.
At Syco Escape Rooms, some puzzles will require out-of-the-box thinking; some will require action; but all will require great teamwork and communication.
ESCAPE ROOMS ARE GREAT FOR:
Friends & Families
We can accommodate groups of 2-8, so families and friend groups are perfect.
Want an exciting, memorable night out with your lovely date? Work together as a team to solve mysteries and beat the clock!

When are you opening?
When we reopen in April, we will have all 3 of our rooms open. We’re excited to have the first escape rooms in Sycamore, IL!
Are we really locked in the room?
Syco Escape Rooms is fully compliant with all DeKalb County building codes – which is to say, of course not! You are entirely free to exit and re-enter the room at any point if needed. However, we do highly recommend sticking around to complete all the puzzles.
What if we get stuck on a challenging puzzle?
Fear not. For each escape room experience, your team will get 3 free clues to use throughout the game at your discretion. When you choose to use a clue, you will receive a hint specifically aimed to give you just enough of a push in the right direction.
Can we bring the kids?
Absolutely, escape rooms are a very fun thing to do with kids. Kids can be quite handy in escape rooms as well. They’re great at matching, discovering new clues, and finding hidden items. They’ll be sure to have fun and stay engaged, and may even help you escape!
For groups comprised mostly of kids (eg birthday parties), we recommend ages 10+. For groups of kids under 14, we require 1-2 parents depending on group size and age, to ensure maximal safety, engagement, and fun.
Do I need to bring anything?
All you’ll need are your wits and some comfortable clothing. Everything else will be provided in the room. Escape rooms do not require any additional tools or devices.
Is anyone making sure we’re on the right track?
For each experience, your team will have your very own Game Manager. Your Game Manager will be the one briefing you on your escape room scenario; giving hints when you ask; and supervising the game while you’re playing to ensure that the game goes safely and smoothly for all.
What if we don’t solve the room in time?
Escape rooms are about the journey, not the destination, so we ensure teams have a great time playing whether or not they escape! If you don’t quite make it in time, you can choose to have the Game Manager walk you through the remainder of the room.
$25 per person
You may be joined by a couple other like-minded adventurers.
