You will not find any traditional padlocks in this room. The solving of each puzzle will create a surprising outcome within the room itself.

Round up your most adventurous friends and prepare to take on the evils in Alderon’s world of the dark . Will the future of humankind survive or will the world be plunged into eternal darkness ?  Only you can determine that fate.

See you in the underworld  !!!!


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.

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.
