Can you head back into the past and solve the puzzles left for you by the Professor to re-jig the thingamy whats-it and save human kind as we know it?!? You will be transported back though the decades, you will need to work with your team to overcome several obstacles that are currently blocking your only path home! This room is ideal for a group of 4 people, although a family of 5 would be ok.

Another room shooting straight into my top 10! 

I’m a huge fan of the 60’s and 80’s and without knowing much about the room prior I was like a kid in a sweet shop playing through the game! I LOVED it. Some great fun puzzles all well themed and even more WOW moments with surprises round every corner. The end…. Very impressive. I won’t give too much away…

My absolute favourite escape room I have ever played. LOVED this room. I am a huge fan of the film franchise, so was excited anyways, however, you DONT have to be a fan to enjoy this room. It's great. With enough memorabilia and reference from the film, but none of it important to the game, so knowledge of the film isnt required. 
The soundtrack of this room is great, so much so, that when we couldnt figure out the clues we'd dance for  a bit before going back to them. 
EVERYTHING in this room was fun, and involved EVERYTHING I wanted, lots of things I expected, and so much more I didnt. 
Great room! Highly recommend!

Awesome room! So immersive and the set is brilliant, you genuinely don’t know where you’re going to end up next. Also one of the best finales we’ve seen. If you’re a Back to the Future fan then you HAVE to play this one.

If you get the above reference then you should know where this time travelling game draws its influence from.  Some clever use of video sets the scene and we are off on our travels.  Featuring a great finale, this should appeal to anyone with a love of 80’s nostalgia.

Absolutely brilliant! We were so overwhelmed by the attention to detail, the quirky details and the truly immersive storytelling. This is an unmissable one... with some of the most incredible theatrics I've seen in an escape room. So much fun!

This game was so much fun! The game play flowed really well, there was a soundtrack accompanying the time travel into each carefully decorated decade and a very satisfying return to the present- which, to me, is a must in any time travel room. 

If you were born in or before the 1980s, you must play this room. Absolutely unmissable!

Also fantastic hosting, we are really looking forward to the opening of future rooms!

What a laugh!!

We played as a 4 and the space is a little tight at times but we really enjoyed this game. 

There are some very interesting set pieces and we loved being transported back to the 80s with the decor and sound track. 

Played at the old location, so there maybe some differences now that it has been moved over.

Outatime is clearly inspired by a certain time-travelling film, and whilst not using anything outright from the film, it is a genuine homage to it, and very nicely done.
