TimeMission is an immersive gaming experience with 25 portals to choose from. Each portal is completely unique and different from each other, designed to test your intellect, endurance, and other abilities!!

  • We love the idea of "The Largest Time Machine in the World", Before opening each door with your time travel bracelet, you'll know what year and theme you'll be traveling to. This concept kept us intrigued the entire time as behind every door was an amazing set design full of surprises. At times we're in a jungle and others we're in outer space (check out our YouTube video above for a sneak peek)!

  • Although it's not like a typical escape room type of feel (there were two that we felt like could pass for a short escape room experience), the urgency of the timer in the room definitely made it feel similar. You have 1-2 minutes to figure out what you need to do and if you fail, you'll have to go back out and retry the room again. The high quality lighting and sound also enhanced our gaming experience.

  • The puzzles in each room varied in levels of difficulty and type. Some were more focused on logic puzzles whereas others are more about the physical challenges. Before entering a room, make sure to check the room type printed on the plaque right outside on the wall. We tried every single room at TimeZone and by the time we finished the second one, we're already sweating. TimeZone really knew how to keep our adrenaline running throughout the entire time!

  • Since there are 25 rooms and each one only takes approximately 1-2 minutes to play through, there's isn't really much of a wait time even if you go on a super busy weekend (like we did). The most we waited was 2 minutes for a room that we haven't played yet, but you can easily go somewhere else and return when that room becomes available.

TimeMission's 25 Portals is sure to intrigue any individual that would like to teleport to another time and challenge themselves. We highly recommend checking out all of the rooms and seeing as much as possible while you're there. Because we were able to travel to different portals throughout time, it felt a lot like "Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure"! If you've done Boda Borg in MA, this would be in the same category because each room felt like mini quests. The challenges were easier and actually doable at TimeZone as most of the time we knew what we did wrong and what we would have to do the next time. At Boda Borg, we had to use a lot of trial and error as sometimes you can just step into a room and fail. If you're the competitive type, definitely check out the score board. It's updated in real time with points your team has earned at each quest. We finished 4th on that day which probably means it's time to go back soon for another challenge!

If TimeMission doesn't interest you, I'm sure R1 Indoor Karting has something else for you. Make a day trip out of it and check out their huge indoor go-kart track, axe throwing, arcade, and more! This place is perfect for events and parties of all ages! For our beloved followers, you're in luck!
