  • "GHOST SHIP" is one of EscapeTime's newer games at their Severna Park location. We've played so many pirate-themed escape rooms that sometimes the storyline seems a bit repetitive. This one, however, had a unique objective which provided more of a quest-type of adventure! Onboard a ship en route to find a cursed ghost ship to free the souls sounds like an epic tale that we got to feel apart of.

  • The set décor is what you would expect from a pirate ship. We enjoyed the music that went along with the theme and the deck even made creaking noises. They also did a good job with building a few clever spaces for hidden items.

  • All of the puzzle challenges in this game correlated w/ the storyline and helped navigate you to reach your goal.


  • Although, the setting is onboard a pirate ship under the night sky, there could've been more options for light since the majority of the game was in a dimly-lit atmosphere. Candle sticks and lanterns would've sufficed for searching and analyzing items that we've found.

  • We didn't get too much a "ghost" vibe with this game. There was a few skulls as props but perhaps a bit more sound effect could help with the eeriness.


Out of the 3 games that we played from EscapeTime Escape Rooms, this was our favorite. Pirate-themed games are always fun but that's not the reason why. It's because overall, everything made sense to us and there was a consistent game flow! The storyline went with the decor and the decor went with the puzzles.
