Announcing the Newest Time Lapse Creation

Time Lapse Escape Rooms is excited to announce their newest creation.


The Warlock’s Curse – Evil Unleashed

Cursed for a millennium and banished to the underworld, Alderon is a ruthless and evil warlock who surfaces from time to time to roam the streets of our city looking for the key to unlock his curse. His only way to survive above ground is to consume human flesh.

After decades of searching he finds the missing piece to a magical amulet which he hopes could be the key to breaking his curse, but to no avail.

With an offer you cannot refuse, you are approached by one of his human slaves. The promise of riches beyond your wildest dreams could be yours if you simply take this piece of the amulet and join it together with the last remaining missing piece.

You journey down a narrow tunnel which becomes darker and darker until all you can see is the faint glow of the amulet piece you are holding. Suddenly you hear a loud noise and you realize ….. there’s no way out.

The human slave has disappeared. Where are you? Are you trapped? What do you do now?

Opening Spring 2017

You will be taken into the deep dark underworld of Alderon where you will begin your adventure. This promises to be a magical and mystical journey with many surprises along the way that you will be sure to enjoy.

Stay tuned for further announcements !!

Inside Escape Rooms

Many people are unaware of what an escape room actually is. Escape Rooms are catching on throughout the world at an incredible rate. The reason seems obvious, they are challenging and offer a totally different form of entertainment.

They force people to get away from their technology for an hour and work together with their group to solve a common goal. They immerse you in your chosen environment in their so called virtual reality. Contrary to what many people think, they are good for all ages.

Time Lapse sent 3 of it’s owners to the Escape Room Conference in Chicago last August to get an inside view of the industry. One of the owners had this to say about their experience.

“The industry is growing at an incredible rate. More and more people are becoming interested in opening an escape room every day. Canada is at the early stages of development.”

“Industry focus is on educating people about what escape rooms are. The more people learn about escape rooms, the more excited and even more addicted they become.”

“Total immersion in the story and environment is what people want. The industry is moving away from simple locks and boxes and more into technology based puzzles and special effects.”

At Time Lapse we are always looking for new and creative ways to entertain and challenge our guests. Our love for escape rooms is what drives us to do our very best when developing new rooms for you to enjoy.

We are excited to soon be announcing the name and story line for our third creation planned to be open for next spring. We will be incorporating more technology and fewer locks and boxes than before. It will be sure to entertain and challenge even the most experienced gamers in Winnipeg.

Stay tuned for upcoming announcements.
