What is an Escape Room?

What’s Escape The 1980s? What is a “room escape” game like? What am I buying a ticket TO? I don’t get any of this.

So… what is a room escape? Essentially, it’s a live action, on-site puzzle game that anyone can play. Teams of 4-10 players will enter our 80’s themed environment and must explore and manipulate their surroundings to advance by using codes and clues (things they hear, see, touch, find and interact with) — to open doors and “escape” (or win the game). It’s a totally thrilling experience.

Escape Room games are an all-new form of reality entertainment that are wildly popular across the United States and the World.  Timewarp Escape partnered with Steel Owl productions to bring their Escape the1980’s game from Philadelphia to Colorado.

When you buy a ticket to Escape the 1980s, you’re buying a ticket into an award-winning, on-site mystery game. You and your teammates have 60 minutes to work together (like detectives) putting together codes and clues to get through an 80s themed “mini mall”. You’ll log into an old school computer, make calls from push button phones, watch 80s video clips, play Atari… and much more. 

It’s a fully immersive, exhilarating escape game experience — and you don’t need to know or remember anything about the 80s to win.

People book room escape tickets for corporate outings, parties, dates, reunions, celebrations — or just to have an unusual experience with friends. The best thing about our room escape? You’ll experience a thrill inside that lasts hours after you finish the game. Scout’s honor.
