About
You're stuck in a 1980s time warp. Your group has 60 minutes to get through four rooms and find clues that will unlock doors, open padlocks, and hack into computer systems. Your goal is to get "back to the future". Make calls from push button 80s phones....enter a "secret code" into a talking computer system...press "musical notes" to unlock doors - and tons more. Knight Rider, the Goonies, Walkie Talkies and much more. Whether you're celebrating a birthday, going out on a date, doing something rad with friends or looking for some non-dorky team building - this is a totally righteous, most unusual adventure.

Blast from the Past
Feb 2020
We were in Philly celebrating a 50th birthday and this was the perfect activity to end a day of site-seeing in the historic area. Everyone in our group of 5 had a great time, even the one who was reluctant at first! They recommend 6 or more but we completed the game with 8 minutes to spare, and it was just us. Given that we all grew up in the 80's made this even more fun, but you don't have to get all the references to have a great time. As an added bonus there is a bar just outside in the Bourse building to get drinks before and/or after (and you can find coupons for free beer and other snacks). I highly recommend this place.

Great family day out

We had a great time. I was especially glad that my nieces, ages 11 and 9, were able to participate just as much as the adults in our group. Would definitely recommend for families.

Fun night out!
Jan 2020 • Friends
Went there with a group of 8 friends. We had such a good time!! I grew up in the 80’s so a lot of the props brought back memories. The staff was very friendly and helpful. It was just a fun night out with friends. I would definitely recommend this game.

Radical Time!!
Oct 2019
We were only a group of (4) and we had a great time and were able to escape the 80s!! The attention to detail at this location is fantastic, especially if you grew up in the 80s you will enjoy all the props and detail.

Random Friday fun
Apr 2019
I booked a time slop last minute with a group of 4 of us. The guy that welcomed us was in character the entire time and he was great! It was a great experience with all of the throwbacks they include. The 80's games and VHS's.... it's a super fun experience. I would suggest it to anyone, it was a great thing to do that was a bit out of the norm.

Fantastic time had by All!
Oct 2019
We did this as a team-building activity for Customer Service Week. Everyone had a great time, it was so much fun! It challenges your 80s memories. The game is well designed, clues at appropriate times (sometimes via music). I've done several different escape rooms, this one is really good!

Tons of fun!
Sep 2019
We went with a group to celebrate a birthday, and it was awesome! The Bourse is a nice home for this, since you can grab a bite before hand and some drinks afterward. The staff were awesome, and we talked about the experience for days after. There is a lot to do/solve, so a group of 8-10 would be perfect.

Better than I imagined

I had never been to an escape room before, and this was so much fun! So many good memories from the 80's while having a blast with my husband and friends. Our guide was very friendly and enthusiastic. My friend's son, who is a teenager, enjoyed himself as well!

Awesomely fun!!!!
May 2019 • Friends
It was a really awesome 1980’s themed Escape Room. You do not need to have knowledge of the 1980’s to complete the puzzles, just a clever mind. The staff was incredibly nice, they had really cool retro items for sale in their store and you can win coupons for some cool treats at the food court in the same building. It was unbelievably fun.
