But first, what IS an Escape Room?
An escape room is a themed puzzle room where you are completely immersed into a new reality and you must use the clues around the room to complete your tasks.
Our Perth Escape Rooms allow for an hour to escape, and we use a range of different types of puzzles to keep you engaged and on your toes. Escape Rooms, as the name suggests, task you with the mission to escape the scenario you’re in, for example escaping from a jail cell. However, escape rooms may also give you the task to save the day before something disastrous happens.
One of our old rooms, The Grinchmare, was this type of Escape Room. In The Grinchmare, escapees were the elves to had to save Christmas before the Grinch ruined it!
Now that you know a little more about what they are, let me tell you why they’re great.
What’s not to love?
They get your imagination flowing, make you think, they’re interactive and also get that adrenaline pumping (I know, it sounds weird but it’s true).
Escape rooms are a great choice for everyone no matter your age or experience.
My favourite thing about escape rooms, personally, is the immersion into a new world and the excitement you get from piecing things together bit by bit until you solve a puzzle. You get to be a detective and solve a crime or a bank thief breaking into a vault.
The added pressure of the clock counting down in my peripheral vision also adds to the rush.
At Time’s Up the rooms are all custom made by the owner Daniela and her father, Deon, who work for months on end to conjure up the puzzles, the mechanisms to make them work and decorate the rooms to create a new world.
All this together makes for an experience like no other you’ll get in the world, let alone in Perth! You get to build a special relationship with the team that you escape (or get trapped) with and you’ll have some pretty cool memories to keep forever. I don’t think I’ve ever laughed at myself or my team as hard as I did when we tried the Wanted and COMPLETELY misread a puzzle. I won’t go into it because I don’t want to spoil the surprise, but honestly I don’t know how we put 2 + 2 together and got 7!
What players love about Escape Rooms…
That they are different to all other activities available, nothing compares to an Escape Room
The mental challenge and theme of the room
The mystery of it all! You never know what you are going to find yourself in, stepping into a game.
The opportunity to think outside the box!
Perth happenings @ Time's Up
Equipped with only a walkie-talkie, a hoard of ridiculous dress-up attire and our wits, me and three of my finest friends entered ‘The Pursuit’ room at Time’s Up Escape Rooms in Wanneroo. Despite always wanting to try an escape room, this was my first ever escape room experience and man, was it an epic afternoon! Read more…
The Weekend Note
I have never been in an Escape Room before but I saw an episode of Big Bang Theory where the characters played the game using only their brain muscles and I was intrigued. It’s a mix of a reality TV game, a race against the clock and a game accessible to the general public Read more…
