Desert Jewel Portable

Time Lapse Escape Rooms is proud to announce their latest portable escape room creation, ” Desert Jewel “.

Currently under development, this room is not yet available for booking but announcements will be made shortly on details of the story line and projected booking dates.

This room is loosely developed around the story of Disney’s Aladdin and will surely include elements of desert mystery and intrigue.

As with the previous two Time Lapse portable rooms, ” Desert Jewel” will be  designed to fit in a 10 foot by 10 foot tent. It will also be a 15 minute escape room adventure to allow for the maximum number of players possible to experience this amazing adventure.

This story will likely be complete with a princess and her passion to find the missing family jewel lost for many years and suddenly appearing to her in a mysterious way. What story would be complete without a possible evil Sultan who must be dealt with in order to secure the jewel ?

Wait ! Did I just give away too much of the story line of  ”  Desert Jewel ” ? No, of course not!  You still don’t know the name of the princess or the reason for her discovery. For this you must wait until the final details are revealed. Haha !!!

Ok. I just have to tell ya !! Here’s some more. It’s colorful and it has snakes. Snakes ??? Ooh, I hate snakes. Does a desert actually have snakes ??? This one does !!! Maybe …. And what else might be lying around for you to find ??? Oh My ……  !!!

Do you think this desert might have an oasis ?? Like with water, palm trees reaching for the sky, or something far more wonderful and spectacular ???  Maybe …….

Please stay tuned for future announcements including the complete story line for this awesome new Time Lapse adventure. ” Desert Jewel ”

The Warlock is Hungry

Alderon the Warlock has been cursed for a millennium by the Good Witch. His only way to withstand the tortures of venturing to the surface is to consume human flesh.

Alderon is in need of new human volunteers to assist him in breaking his curse. Do you have what it takes to venture into Alderon’s deep dark underworld home of the warlock where anything can happen ?

He promises to give you riches beyond your imagination if you succeed. Zurbas are the warlock currency and are extremely valuable on the surface because of their magical powers.

You see, a warlock is a male witch and many have fallen prey to the temptations of evils beyond their control. Some warlocks are even seen as evil themselves however this is not always true.

This Halloween give yourself a deep dark underworld treat of the warlock underworld and see if you can capture a fortune in mystical Zurbas.

The Warlock’s Curse – Evil Unleashed is Time Lapse Escape Rooms darkest and scariest room. It is completely electronic with absolutely no padlocks of any kind. When you solve a puzzle something magical will happen that is totally unexpected.

Also in this room, you must be aware that your game master is not quite human. He or she is a form of mutated human hybrid that can only help you when you are in the underworld. But be careful, you never know what these mutated hybrids will do. Very unpredictable and sometimes quite frightening with their looks and their actions. Their mutations have made them very unstable creatures.

What better way to spend a spooktacular time during this Halloween season. Round up your bravest of friends and give the underworld a try.

Alderon is also in need of a new tasty treat. But that won’t be you, will it ?


Time Travelling Story

Time Lapse Escape Rooms flagship room is the ever popular ” Trapped In Time “, a time travelling adventure.

The background of the story begins with an old man telling stories about the boundaries of physics allowing for the possibility of travelling in time as an everyday part of life.

Imagine going back to a time in history instead of going to the beach ? Imagine being a witness to past events that are only told in history texts ? Imagine travelling to the future and witnessing events that have not yet happened  ? According to the old man, this is all possible with technology that will allow travelling in time.

Your personal time travelling story now begins.

The old man above, Professor Perrin, is actually a retired  quantum physics professor from your local university. He has claimed to have invented a time travelling device.

Thinking that he is just telling a story, you agree to go to his lab in an old warehouse to check out what he’s got. You soon realize that he has actually built something that looks and sounds very strange. Is it actually a time travelling device as he claims ?

Suddenly, he flips a switch and everything goes black. Your body feels like it is being pulled in every direction. You awake in a dimly lit room.

Where are you ? When are you ? Where is Professor Perrin ? Your time travelling adventure has begun !!!

Where will you end up ? When will you end up ? Will you be able to get back home to the present day ? Will you ever see Professor Perrin again ? Will he be able to help you get home ?

These questions and many more are answered as you take your very own time travelling adventure with Time Lapse Escape Rooms and their flagship room Trapped In Time.

Call 204-487-2262 today to book your very own time travelling adventure.



Portable Rooms Update

In the fall of 2018 Time Lapse introduced two portable escape rooms “Kingdom of Chaos” and “Enchanted Forest”

These portable rooms are designed to be set up almost anywhere there is a large gathering. In the past we have booked events such as holiday parties, school functions, corporate training events and other special events for larger groups.

The ideal group size per room is 80 players for a 4 hour period. Longer periods are available for larger groups as well. The rooms are normally 15 minutes in length and can comfortably hold 5 players at a time. A 30 minute version is also available. Many functions hold a competition for the best time complete with prizes.

The space requirements for each room is 12 feet by 12 feet of floor space with a preferred ceiling height of 10 feet or more.

Our portable rooms are set up in a tent to give you the most immersive experience possible. Each room is designed with their own lighting elements and individually themed sound tracks. A personal game master is provided for each room to offer hints and to introduce the detailed story lines.

As with everything Time Lapse designs, the goal is for everyone to have fun in a challenging and rewarding environment.

For more information on booking our portable rooms, please feel free to give us a call at 204-487-2262.



Tick Tock – Uncovered

The Tick Tock escape room at Time Lapse Escape Rooms is a murder mystery room where you are trying to gather evidence to find a killer.

Each player is assigned a character at the beginning of the game where each player is a member of the Time Lapse Police Department. A very unique and creative way to immerse each player into the game.

Tick Tock is a very story intense room. Designed loosely around some of the most popular tv crime series,  the main suspect is a local clock shop owner named Timothy Tokar. The room name and the suspect name have similarities. The first two letters of each are the same. Ti and To . Everything is carefully designed in this room.

Mr Tokar is a very disturbed individual. He absolutely hates his physical appearance having been born with very large ears. He blamed his father, having the same big ears, for his looks. His father, the original owner of the clock shop, mysteriously went missing a number of years ago. It is believed that he may have been Timothy’s first victim.

Having inherited his father’s clock shop, Timothy despises the place and has purposefully let the place deteriorate and become run down. It does however provide the perfect front for his suspected criminal activity.

There is a lot more that goes into the rooms designed at Time Lapse Escape Rooms than most people realize. Every room starts with it’s unique story line complete with character names. The puzzles and decor are then developed around each unique and creative story line.

Twists and turns and special surprises are always added to the rooms as well. You never know what will happen in a Time Lapse Escape Room.

If you are looking for a fun and rewarding way to spend an hour, check out the Tick Tock room at Time Lapse Escape Rooms.

Local Family Run Fun

Time Lapse Escape Rooms is a local Winnipeg business run by a local Winnipeg family. As lifelong residents of Winnipeg, the Lyons family have been creating fun and challenging escape rooms for you all to enjoy for the past three years.

They have become well known for their very unique and creative ideas as well as sometimes off the wall story lines. It is guaranteed that you will never see any of their creations anywhere else ( unless someone else has copied them of course ) .

All puzzles, props and room decor ideas are completely developed in house. They always keep an eye on new and emerging technologies to help provide the most entertaining and mind blowing experience.

Time Lapse Escape Rooms currently runs four permanent escape room experiences at their King Edward location ” Trapped In Time, Tick Tock, The Warlock’s Curse and Gold Rushed “.   They also operate two portable escape room experiences ” Kingdom Of Chaos and Enchanted Forest ” designed to be set up almost anywhere for large group functions.

Right now they are working on their fifth permanent escape room experience, “Eye Of The Spy” . This room will also be located at their King Edward location and promises to live up to their tradition of being completely unique and entertaining.  Apparently many new twists and turns and another off the wall story line as well.

If you are looking for a fun and rewarding escape room experience, you will want to try Time Lapse Escape Rooms for your next outing. It is always nice to know that you will be supporting a local Winnipeg family as well.


Introducing Eye Of The Spy

Time Lapse Escape Rooms is proud to announce the name and theme of their newest escape room experience ” Eye OF The Spy “, a thrilling spy adventure.

Based loosely around the most popular spy themed movies and shows, it promises to be an action packed hour of adventure for all players. The room is being designed with all age groups in mind. It will not be a scary adventure but it will be one with many new twists and turns never seen before.

A brief synopsis of the story line is being developed and here is what we have so far. Please note this could change many times before a final version is decided upon.

*** The leader of an evil organization known as “The Disruptors” , “Dr. Schtrovitz” , has been sighted in the remote jungles of Peru near the village of Boca Manu. “The Disruptors” are believed to be responsible for a devastating natural disaster near the South Pole. Your task is to find and destroy their secret compound and escape to safety before they are able to do more damage to the world as we know it.  Hurry  Agents , you haven’t much time.***

As with all Time Lapse creations, eye of the spy will be full of unique and carefully crafted puzzles and props designed to entertain. In addition, there could be theatrical elements introduced where your Game Master will play a role in the immersion of your experience. As you may already know and have experienced, we love adding the element of the unexpected to all of our rooms.

As this room is currently in the development stage, an exact opening date has not yet been determined. As you know, we never rush the development of any of our rooms. We want to make sure everything is done as authentically and accurately as possible to ensure the best possible entertainment experience.

Stay tuned for more details as the room develops. We promise you , it will be well worth the wait.


Exercise Your Mind

One thing about escape rooms that is very rarely mentioned is that escape rooms are designed to exercise your mind, not your muscles !!!

At Time Lapse Escape Rooms we tell everyone in our intro briefing that escape rooms are a mind game not a muscle game. Sure, we tell players this to try to prevent physical damage to props and puzzles.  But it also means you don’t have to be an athlete or in top physical shape to enjoy an escape room.

Escape rooms can be enjoyed by everyone no matter your physical condition. At Time Lapse Escape Rooms we even have rooms that are good for those with physical disabilities or even wheelchair bound. Call us for more details on how we can adapt to your special needs.

So never fear, you will not need a great deal of physical ability to participate and enjoy any of our escape rooms. This we absolutely promise. You are here with us to exercise your mind. This does not mean that you will never break a sweat though. When you exercise your mind it is quite amazing how much heat can be generated.

There are plenty of activities out there to exercise your muscles but only one that I can think of that will truly exercise your mind. Escape Rooms. As my old saying about escape rooms goes, fun for all and all for fun.

Call us or book on line to find out how much fun it can be today to exercise your mind in one of the Time Lapse Escape Rooms.
