PTBO Escape – Time Machine Rescue

PTBO Escape is located in Peterborough Ontario in Lansdowne Place Mall,  they are owned and operated by the team at Escape Maze.  Because we knew this, we were eager to swing into town to visit the Escape Maze team and try out their latest and greatest.  With us was Team Kpop, who are Owner/Enthusiasts as well.

Long Story Short: Fix the Time Machine !

Creativity and Design: Did it sell the story / theme?
Summary: A fun unique take on this theme.

+ A unique set design for a fun theme
+ Lots of interactive components that is good for a large group
+ A great room from designers that specialize in historical themes

Bells and Whistles: Was it more than lockboxes?
Summary:  Tech used right

+ No tech hiccups
+ Cool environmental effects

:  Did you have to be inside the designer’s mind to solve it?
Summary:  Fun, interactive puzzles

+ The puzzles were intuitive and fun
+ Puzzles were largely task-based
+ We didn’t need any hints, and a team of 4 (experienced players) was enough

Staff Support/Price : Were they friendly? Were they helpful? What was the Damage?

The GMs at PTBO have the same charm and enthusiasm as the ones that work at the main Escape Maze location (usually a mark of a business worth visiting).

Overall: PTBO Escape delivers the mainstream themes from the braintrust of Escape Maze.  The Time Machine Rescue was a fun take on the time travel theme.  If you’re looking for something unique and fun, I’d give it a go.
