My wife, two daughters and I tried our first escape room. This one (Dr. Trott's Apothecary) was pretty challenging, but we escaped and only needed one clue. Good connection to Charleston and fun puzzles. A bit pricey for a family outing $100 for 4 people for 1 hour, but fun occasional activity.

Since we were visitors to Charleston, we loved that the Escape rooms were based around actual stories from Charleston’s history. We also appreciated that we could book a private room for the four of us without paying any additional amount. Ariana, our host, was great!

We loved that the room was personalized to Charleston itself (all of the rooms we at least somewhat historically based on Charleston stories) and we absolutely loved how dedicated Adrianna (I think? I hope I got that correct) was to her job. She was so fun and sweet to us and made it the best possible experience. We did the apothecary room which was mostly puzzles. (Boarding house is riddles and the spy one is codes.) We had unlimited clues which is unusual but it, surprisingly, was still a bit of a challenge. One if not the best out there.

First of all, let me just talk about the amazing staff. They were engaging, accommodating and funny! This building itself is unique in the heart of downtown Charleston. We really enjoyed the themes they do with local history. Unique and very well done. The puzzles were hard, but not impossible, and the gamemaster was helpful. Will definitely go again next time i'm in Charleston. What really set this place apart was the staff, themes. They also have a cute little area in the 'lobby' with wine, beer and lounging area with board games. Family friendly as well!

We played The Apothecary and JFK The Spy Who Loved Me. Both rooms were very well done and a lot of fun. The theming of both rooms was good and the puzzles were very different and just enough of a challenge to be fun but not impossible.
You can tell the owners love to do these rooms by the amount of thought and care that go into each one. We will be back to do the last room.

My husband and I are Escape Room enthusiasts and in Charleston for a night. We stumbled across Time Travelers Escape Games online and booked The Apothecary. Meghan was so welcoming, kind, and a great game master. The room was well designed, the locks were specifically chosen for the time period of the story, and the theme taught us something new about Charleston. I definitely recommend this local gem!

Great date night. My husband and I had so much fun doing the escape room. They have a cute little bar area with a nice view of King Street. We enjoyed talking to Meagan too. She’s super sweet and fun. This would also be fun with a group of friends or a team building event. I highly recommend it and we will be back!

We had a family vacation to Charleston with 17 people looking to do something together. We got 2 rooms here and we could not have asked for anything better. We were welcomed when we came into the front office with smiles and positive attitudes. The staff were well equipped to take care of our large sometimes nonfunctional family. Lol... Most of us had not ever played before and the staff made sure to answer all questions they had. It is certainly worth the trip into time with this group. Well worth the money.

We thoroughly enjoyed our experience at Time Traveler Escape Games! The location is beautiful. Meghan was awesome to work with and did a great job from start to finish. The room itself, The Apothecary, was one of the best that we’ve experienced. I would highly recommend Time Traveler Escape Games and we will definitely be back!

Great experience in Lavinia Fisher’s Boarding House! Meghan was excellent, and gracious considering we arrived around 40 minutes early. Her clues were helpful, without simply giving away the answer. Added bonus for the suggestion of a great ice cream shop just down the street.
