You might think escape rooms are just for kids but think again! Timeless Escape, a brand new, adult-centric escape room experience has just opened its doors in the Cape Town CBD and we’re sure you’re going to love it. Complete with a prohibition-style bar and wonderfully chic decor, this new addition to the escape room trend is the ideal place for a night out on the town. The WomenStuff team got a sneak peek at the experience and we can’t wait to go back — here’s why!
Cape Town never fails to impress with the number of unique experiences at our doorstep and Timeless Escape is no exception. In addition to two wonderfully challenging escape room games, the spot is also home to trendy mixology cocktail bar, the Prohibition Lounge. But this isn’t just your average bar — this one allows guests to BYOS (Bring Your Own Spirits)! That’s right, forget having to settle for lesser spirits in your cocktail when you’re out on the town, at Timeless Escape you can bring your favourite gin, vodka, rum, you name it, along with you and the highly skilled barmen at the Prohibition Lounge will mix it with the delicious ingredients they have behind the bar to create a specialty cocktail just for you. What’s more, there’s no corkage, just a flat rate of R45 a cocktail.
While you’re allowed to spend all your time in the oh-so-stylish Prohibition Lounge, we highly suggest you also try out an escape room experience while you’re there. Geared towards a more adult audience, these escape rooms are the right mix of challenging and fun. For those who have never experienced an escape room game before, players are basically locked in a room for an hour (or more) and have to find their way out by solving a series of clues and puzzles before the time runs out. Players at Timeless Escape can choose from two rooms: Da Vinci’s Secret or Spy Mission. We got to a taste of the Da Vinci’s room and it was a mind bender of note!
Da Vinci’s Secret room takes you on a journey of discovery, giving players 90 minutes to solve complex puzzles, uncover secrets and figure out whether or not Da Vinci managed to unlock nature’s best-kept secret: the key to eternal life. The Spy Mission room requires a little role playing: one member of your group is picked to play a mole in the operation, and the mission is to find out who it is in just 60 minutes. A third room is also currently under construction so there will be even more for you discover in at Timeless Escape very soon.
