Time Lapse Second Portable Room

Time Lapse  is proud to announce the development of it’s second portable escape room experience ” The Enchanted Forest “.

On a hike in the woods, you and your group have wandered off the main trail and now find yourselves lost.

Moving forward to find your way back to the trail, you feel pulled towards a bright light coming from an area of thick foliage. Arriving at the light you become terribly disoriented and cannot see a way out – it all looks the same.

In front of you is a strange looking note that describes what you have to do to get out of this trap….You must find four magical leaves and join them together to escape the enchanted forest.

You have a mere 15 to 30 minutes until the intoxicating forest renders you unconscious and absorbs you to never be seen again.

The Enchanted forest is scheduled to be available for booking by October 1. It will be available in 15 minute and 30 minute versions.

Stay tuned for further announcements on booking this experience.

Gold Rushed – Uncovered

The owners of Time Lapse Escape Rooms have brought their love of Dawson City Yukon to life in their new room Gold Rushed !

Having all traveled to Dawson City a number of years ago, they were amazed at the effect the lure of wealth had on people during the Klondike Gold Rush. The hardship that adventurers endured just to get there and then the back breaking work to eke out a few flakes of gold.

In the land of the midnight sun, where the sunset is at 3am and sunrise at 5 am during the warm summer months, meant plenty of time for prospectors to work their claims. The opposite effect in the long cold winter months with barely any daylight hours at all meant great hardship for those who could not afford to return home.

The setting of Gold Rushed is in the Gold Dust Lodge, an accurate recreation of a remote watering hole (not the real name), where prospectors spent many of their darkest hours. You will see the infamous local drink, the sour toe cocktail, that actually contains a real human toe from those who lost them due to frostbite. A tradition that continues to this day.

Come take a step back in time and travel to the remote Canadian north to experience life in the Klondike Gold Rush era. Fun Fact – Dawson City Yukon was the largest Canadian city west of Winnipeg during the Klondike Gold Rush.

Gold Rushed Opening Soon

Time Lapse Escape Rooms is proud to announce the opening of their newest creation, ” Gold Rushed ” . The room will be available for booking starting July 16, 2018.

Set in the latter part of the Klondike Gold Rush era of the late 1800’s, you will be taken back in time and immersed in the remote northern boom town of Dawson City Yukon. Life in the Klondike was harsh and brutal where many hopeful prospectors perished in search of their dreams of wealth.

The few that became extremely wealthy, had to constantly protect their findings from ruthless claim jumpers.  Your goal in this room is to secure your group’s large golden nugget before the claim jumpers find it and escape to freedom. Your partner Ruby, who owns the Gold Dust Lodge, has been killed trying to safeguard the nugget. She has hidden the nugget somewhere in her lodge and has given you clues to find it and escape.

Good luck prospectors. Hurry, you must find your hidden nugget and escape to freedom before the claim jumpers return to finish you off.
