An Escape Room is a live action experience that places you and a group of your close friends or co-workers into an immersive environment. You are given a specific time to complete a pre defined goal by solving puzzles and mysteries. It forces you to work closely with members of your group to combine your efforts towards solving the common goal. Escape Rooms are an excellent way to promote employee bonding and team building.
Not to mention, Escape Rooms are a lot of fun. Your holiday party needs to be a lot of fun. Many companies visit an escape room before their dinner and party time. This gives the employees many common areas for discussion and kidding around. A great way to break the ice and talk about something other than work.
Time Lapse Escape Rooms is the newest escape room to enter the Winnipeg area. They offer one of the most immersive escape room options in the city that will utilize many senses. From sight to sound to even smells of your chosen environment they will take you away from the real world and immerse you into their own creations.
Time Lapse Escape Rooms welcomes you to give them a try for your 2016 Holiday Party. It is an experience you will not forget and may be talking about for a long time to come.
Time Lapse Escape Rooms is Winnipeg’s newest live escape room adventure. Time Lapse is a family run business and is dedicated to creating the most unique and immersive experiences possible. From sight to sounds to even smells of your chosen environment, Time Lapse aims to make your live game room challenge one unforgettable experience.
The first rule at Time Lapse is for everyone to ” Have Fun ” ! Whether or not you succeed at escaping or solving the scenario, we want you to come away with a good memory of fun times with your family, friends, and/or co-workers.
Time Lapse currently has two game room scenarios to choose from with one more in the development stage.
The first is a time traveling adventure called Trapped In Time where you are all university students taking part in a time traveling experiment with a crazy old professor named Professor Perrin. Suddenly something goes terribly wrong and you find yourself alone in a strange place in time. Your goal is to discover where and when you are in order to navigate your way back home.
The second room is a murder mystery adventure called Tick Tock where you are all police detectives with the Time Lapse Police Department. For this room each player is given an individual identity to play during the scenario. Your main suspect is Timothy Tokar, an elusive and intelligent clock shop owner. You start your adventure in his clock shop where he may be hiding. Your goal is to solve the murder of Detective Brady’s son.
The third room scenario is being developed and will be announced soon. It will be a mythical and magical journey you will be sure to enjoy.
Puzzles have always been something that I’ve been good at. I love the challenge, I like using my brain.
My first encounter with escape rooms was actually in Vancouver BC, at the escape room called I-Exit. I went with my brother and his girlfriend at the time and of course unknowingly we picked the hardest room.
To say the least we didn’t escape… or even get close to escaping. But I knew that after that experience I needed to do more and I felt like I was addicted after the first time.In that first escape room I remember it was a zombie themed lab room with zombie bodies lying around a dark room. After that escape room experience I thought that all other escape rooms would be similar, all being dark and creepy. Little did I know, there were tons of different themes and endless creative possibilities, until I came back to Winnipeg to find out and explore all the options in my own city. I didn’t end up trying out any escape rooms until probably about 6 or 7 months after my first experience due to my busy hectic life at the time, but after I tried a couple out in Winnipeg I wanted to create my own escape room and create puzzles and start up my own business. I took my family to their first escape room and they fell in love with it the same way I did. That’s why we are all in it together as a family business because we all enjoy puzzles and we all love to add a little bit of challenge to our lives.
People ask me what I love about escape rooms and what makes me want to go through with starting a business. It’s quite simple actually. For me, going to escape rooms is different than any other type of entertainment that you do with a group of friends or family. To me it’s like you get to escape out of the real world for an hour and let all these crazy brain benders and puzzles take over your mind and before you know it, that was the fastest hour of your life. It takes you out of your own life, your own stress and makes you so focused on the task at hand no matter if you’re good at puzzles or not. You’re always thinking of ways to solve and how to interpret everything. The reason that I wanted to start up a business of my own was because every escape room I went to I could see things that I would’ve done differently if I was the owner. I saw ways that could make everyone’s experiences more like real life and more immersive.
So now here we are, opening Time Lapse Escape Rooms. It’s been a crazy process with so many unexpected things popping up and going wrong but the process has been so much fun and we’re constantly learning new things about escape rooms in general and the business aspect as well.
This is the start of our next chapter and our new adventure. I hope you join us on this journey.
