Five staff members of the Osprey Observer recently checked out the new Time Trapped Escape Room as team building.

If you are looking to make a quick get-away, look no further than Brandon’s new Time Trapped Escape Room for a fun and fully immersive interactive experience. Spend bonding time with your family, friends or team at work.
The new Escape Room, called The Mobster’s Speakeasy, fully immerses you into the 1920’s. The task is to gain access to the Speakeasy known as the ‘21 Club’ so that you can find evidence of Lucky Luciano’s crime and escape before he returns – all in 60 minutes. This room holds up to six players.

Kevin and Kristina Knott own and operate Time Trapped Escape Room. Kevin has lived in the area for over 25 years. Both he and his wife enjoy participating in Escape Rooms and wanted to bring the experience to the local community. Everything you need to make your escape is inside the rooms. “It’s a 60 minute game of wits and intelligence,” Kevin said.

Before you begin, you will receive directions on how to play. “There are clues hidden everywhere,” Kevin added. “You have to think outside the box.”

According to Kristina, “Our puzzles are difficult enough to keep you occupied the whole game but fun enough when you are done you will want to play another one.”

Five Osprey Observer team members recently put this to the test. We had to make sense of all the different clues, figure out the puzzles and riddles, and crack the codes. After about 48 minutes – success! Advertising Rep Kerrie Hoening said, “We love the Escape Room concept and each one is different from the last.” By June, three additional themed rooms will be open.

Time Trapped Escape Room is located on 9270 Bay Plaza Blvd., Ste. 6330 in Tampa. It is located directly behind the Clarion Inn Hotel off of Adamo Dr. For more information, call 372-1190. Admission is $28 per person. Book a game using the promo code OSPREY to receive 25% off your first game.
