Time Lapse Number One Goal

Our Number One Goal at Time Lapse Escape Rooms is to ensure everyone has a fun and rewarding experience.

At Time Lapse we see a lot of new players each and every day.  Our goal has always been to ensure each player, whether experienced or not, comes away with a positive new experience.

Some newcomers have told us that they are now hooked  on escape rooms and will come back to play again. Even some experienced players have told us that Time Lapse is the Best Escape Room in Winnipeg  that they have done. Both are very good signs that we are doing our job and fulfilling our number one goal.

Most new players come away with a very positive experience. Many say that it was totally different than what they expected in a very positive way. Many newcomers say that it was harder than they thought and that they enjoyed that it was. Overcoming a challenge always gives a player a very positive feeling.

Many new players have said that they enjoyed the stories and being immersed into the stories as either a character or a group of characters placed in a harrowing situation. Basically, an escape from everyday life.

At Time Lapse we have always been dedicated to providing the most fun and rewarding experience possible for each and every player. We design each room to have its very own wow factor. Whether its in the form of an awesome piece of technology or an interesting interaction with the game master ( or both ), its all part of the design.

As we continue in 2019 with work on our 5th escape room design, we ensure you it is being designed with you in mind.  To ensure that you will have the most positive, challenging and rewarding experience possible. And yes, it will have a wow factor like you have never seen before.

Happy Holiday Fun

Time Lapse Escape Rooms would like to wish everyone a very happy holiday season.

The winter holiday break can be a very busy and sometimes stressful time for many. All the frantic shopping, all the meals to be made, all the presents to be wrapped, etc. etc. etc.

What better way to unwind than by escaping to a world far away. At least for an hour or so. Time Lapse Escape Rooms has four awesome adventures to choose from to escape the holiday hustle and bustle.

Join Professor Perron on a mind blowing time travelling adventure. Or join the Time Lapse Police Department and try to put a notorious serial killer where he belongs. If you are into fantasy, join Alderon the Warlock in a creepy underworld adventure where anything can happen. Or learn what it felt like to be a part of the great Klondike Gold Rush in northern Canada.

For smaller groups, check out our Virtual Reality adventures. Individual players can experience being trapped in an ancient tomb. Or feel what its like to be abducted by aliens. For the true adventurist try escaping from a creepy little girl’s playroom where anything can happen.

Time Lapse Escape Rooms is the perfect place to relax and enjoy some family fun. Come join us this holiday season and let us entertain you and your family and friends. Happy Holidays.


Escape Rooms – Are You Really Locked In ?

Many newcomers to escape rooms are a bit uneasy about the idea of being locked in a room for an hour. I must say that is a terrifying thought that probably would keep many people from ever trying an escape room.

Relax, I have good news. At Time Lapse Escape Rooms we do not lock you in any of our rooms. You are always free to leave through the door you came in if panic sets in or if nature calls. In fact none of the escape rooms that I have ever done in Manitoba actually lock you in.

I have done rooms in other places that do lock you in, however, there has always been a key to get out within easy reach. This is probably a good thing to check out before booking a room elsewhere. If you go travelling and feel uneasy about the thought of actually being locked in a room find out first.

Many story lines of escape rooms do try to make you believe that you’re locked in. But it is only for telling the story and simulating a dire situation. Somewhat like big screen movies, escape rooms try to immerse you into the story and environment you are about to experience. I like to call it Hollywood magic.

If you are new to the idea of trying an escape room but were too afraid to try, you can rest assure that they are a very safe activity. The most physically dangerous thing that I could imagine happening is maybe slipping or tripping over something or someone. That’s it.

So put down your worries about being trapped. Put down your worries of getting hurt. Relax and enjoy the escape room experience that has been carefully designed to be your entertaining and magical experience. A truly unforgettable experience for many.


Escape Rooms – A Global Experience

Escape Rooms are a global activity ! What this means is that wherever you travel or visit you will likely find an escape room company or two willing to entertain you.

New experiences and adventures await wherever you go. Many the city have unique creations, sometimes focusing on their particular locations.

At Time Lapse Escape Rooms we have hosted players from all over the world! Many have traveled here for business. Many have come for sporting events or concerts. Many have come to visit friends or relatives. Others have come to explore what Manitoba and Winnipeg have to offer. We have even seen travelers that base their travels on experiencing particular escape rooms!

At Time Lapse Escape Rooms we have always welcomed everyone to post a pin on our large world map just inside our front door.

Where in the world have you come from ? Whether you are visiting Winnipeg or have settled here from somewhere else feel free to proudly post your pin on your next visit. When you step back and take a look at the map it is quite amazing to see how much diversity there is in the world.

From Steinbach to Istanbul, from Brandon to Rome, you are all welcome to call Time Lapse your home. At least for the short time you are with us. Happy and safe travels everyone !!!


First Escape Room Ever

Many players to our rooms ask where escape rooms started. Generally we say they started in Asia and then moved quickly to Europe then to the US.

But where exactly was the very first escape room created?

It seems that the very first room was created in Japan in 2007. It’s creator transformed the concept of the escape room video game that became popular after its introduction in 2004. The idea was to give players the opportunity of becoming much more immersed than in the video game.

The idea quickly spread across the rest of Asia before arriving in Europe. Budapest Hungary was the pioneering city in Europe with the very first room opening there in 2011.

The first escape room to open in the United States was in 2012 and in Canada the first room opened in 2013.

There you have it. The very brief history of the escape room industry.

It’s no wonder why escape rooms have caught on so quickly. Where else can you escape your everyday life and be transported into a challenging and exciting experience without any risk of physical danger? Then be safe and sound back home for dinner in about an hour.

Where and when will your next escape room adventure take you ? In the world of escape rooms, anything is possible. Have Fun !!!

Time Lapse Makes Scents

At Time Lapse Escape Rooms we take your experience very seriously. We believe your experience should be as realistic and immersive as possible. That is why we consider all of your senses, including smell, for a total escape room experience.

Time Lapse Thanksgiving Message

Time Lapse Escape Rooms would like to take this time to give thanks to each and every player that has enjoyed experiencing our creations over the past couple of years. Without this support, the creation and building of new room ideas would not be possible.

Our development team is currently putting the finishing touches on our second portable escape room ” Enchanted Forest ” . This should prove to be an awesome addition to the already completed and tested portable escape room ” Kingdom of Chaos “. If you have a special event coming up, check out our web site for the options for booking these rooms.

Time Lapse Escape Rooms currently has 4 permanent escape rooms running. “Trapped In Time” – a time travelling adventure, “Tick Tock”- a role playing murder mystery, “The Warlock’s Curse”- a mystical and magical underworld adventure and “Gold Rushed” – an adventure into the Klondike gold rush era.

Having recently expanded the King Edward location, there is space now for 2 additional permanent escape rooms. Currently  under development is the fifth permanent room ” Eye of the Spy ” . Not much can be released about this room at this early stage, but all that can be said is if you like the James Bond series you will love this room.

The sixth permanent room is still yet to be determined as many ideas and options are still being thrown around. Stay Tuned.

At Time Lapse Escape Rooms we are always looking for new and exciting ways to entertain you in the escape room world. Embracing new technology as it becomes available is always high on our agenda.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone !!!
