    Amazing and Fun Experience!
    The experience overall was so much fun! We did Precinct and the room was really week thought out, a little bit spooky and fun in the theme but nothing scary and nothing that seemed unnecessary for the room. It was so well designed and thought out! Our Gamemaster, Kate, was also very helpful and had the perfect balance between giving us tips while still making it challenging. If you are looking for a fun escape room I definitely recommend it.
    TravelTree - Thank you for the awesome review of Timed Out and Kate. We are glad to hear you loved the theme and puzzles within the Precinct room. We can't wait to see you again for another room. - Tina

    Family fun on a rainy day
    This is my favorite escape room in Charlotte. The rooms are large, clean and inventive. It’s always a good time. The game masters are always friendly and helpful. We enjoyed meeting Bennett today. New room coming so we will be back.

    Put On Your Thinking Cap for Fun and Laughs!
    This was a first for the four of us. Our host, Bennett, was terrific with explaining the set-up, and helping us (from afar) when we were stumped. We did the Illusion Room, which was creatively set up for us to solve a mystery. We had lots of laughs and challenges, but solved the mystery in the nick of time! Can’t wait to go again!
    Thank you for the awesome review of Illusion and Bennett was a terrific game master. We can't wait to see you for another room! - Tina

    We loved it!!
    What an AWESOME experience! The booking experience was amazing and Tina was so responsive and helpful. We booked several rooms for our company outing. The entire process was seamless. During our game, our Game Master Maggie was INCREDIBLE! She made our experience so much better. Book a room with TimedOut, you won’t regret it!!
    Alexandra - Thank you so much for bring your company for a team building event. We are so glad to hear that your experience was amazing and Maggie was fantastic in Precinct for you. We hope you come back soon for another room! - Tina

    Great experience
    We had a great time in the illusion room. We joked that we would have been stuck a week if it wasn’t for Gamemaster Kat, who wouldn’t let us fail! She guided and redirected us as needed to ensure we had a successful escape. Fun for the whole family.
    Amber - Thank you for this outstanding review. We are so glad Illusion was a lot of fun and Kat was fantastic. We can't wait to see you for another room. - Tina

    Team Build
    Took my sales team to Timed Out for a team build - did the Illusions room, and all had a great time. It was the perfect room for needing a team to work together to solve. Nicole was great to chime in if she saw them really getting off course, as well as provide slight clues when asked. Would return again to try another room.
    Thank you so much for an awesome review. We are glad your team enjoyed your team building event in our Illusion room. It is amazing to hear Nicole was great. We can't wait to see you for another room soon. - Tina

We loved the experience. It was much more challenging than my previous experience. We had a ball. Nicole was great with a few flies along the way.
