The How To Kill An Hour crew (of which I’m part of) were lucky enough to be invited to the Time Run escape rooms to try out their latest adventure, The Celestial Chain. Luckily, we managed to escape so we can tell you just how awesome it was!
Ready? Let’s go!
First off, Time Run captures your imagination right off the bat by having the entire experience take place with everyone in character. Everything and anything is told to you by a cast of whacky characters who make up the Time Runner team, the best of which is your robot companion Babbage.
Having the entire experience be in character really helps draw you in and make you really feel like you’re going on a time hopping adventure.
And what an adventure it is! You and your team get to venture between a multitude of time periods, solving a wide range of puzzles that range from ones that’ll give you a nice mental workout, to ones that will have your team crying out in confusion over how impossible it seems.
But no matter what, you’re always laughing and having a good time.
Once you beat the big baddie and finish the story (and yes there’s an actual story to this one), you’re scored on how well you played, making this one of the first escape rooms you can compare your skills to with your friends.
There’s a thousand and one things to praise about Time Run, but like many things in life, it’s best to go in with no idea what to expect and to enjoy the ride. And for only £25 per person, it’s a great way to spend some time having a laugh with your friends as you travel through time to save the world.
