Mark game as played to rate
In the not too distant future, science has nearly intersected with science fiction. Researchers are on the verge of discovering time travel but are being thwarted at every turn. Fearing the ramifications of people tampering with time, a secretive group known as the Temporal Interference and Manipulation Eradicators (T.I.M.E.) have been conducting terrorist attacks to impede scientific progress and bring publicity to their cause. Dr. Jones, the head of a secret government lab near Portland, has claimed to have recently made a huge breakthrough. Unfortunately, T.I.M.E. planted a bomb in his lab, destroying all their research. You’re members of an ultra-secret team of investigators recruited for your backgrounds in theoretical physics. You must visit the destroyed lab to salvage what research you can while also attempting to bring T.I.M.E. to justice. But hurry! No one knows if T.I.M.E. will strike again! Can you get to the bottom of what happened?

We didn’t escape because there were only two of us. However, the puzzles were good and with more people I’m sure we would have made it out in time!

My brother and I visited MindTrix in Portland, Oregon in late 2019 right before the pandemic shutdown. We did two of their rooms (Time Machine and Tesla's Mystery), and they were very good. MindTrix is located in Clackamas Town Center mall. It was a little bit of a walk, but it was easy to find a parking spot. The game master was also the game designer. You can tell that he and his wife put a lot of thought and effort into these rooms. I was very impressed with their building and design skills. The decor/immersiveness of all the rooms were excellent. I like the name MindTrix too. I highly recommend MindTrix because it is a unique and high quality experience. Almost all of the best escape rooms are large chains that put a lot of effort into creating a few good rooms that they recreated in many different locations, but MindTrix is an exception to that rule. It's obvious that the owners of MindTrix love what they do. Their passion for escape rooms made the experience exciting and unique. The game creator has mastered the use of lasers in an incredible way. He uses lasers in ways I've never seen before, and his puzzles/locks have left generation one puzzles in their dust. The theme and storyline of Time Machine was very unique and exciting. It had two surprising elements that I've never seen before. I won't spoil those elements here, I will say this room had one of the coolest laser puzzles I've ever seen. In the last of four areas in this room, there was a very creative, automated system to keep track of your progress on the puzzles. I loved that. My frustration with the room concerns a frustrating element that the creator chose to add that allows a team to complete the room but fail the room by completing it incorrectly. You'll need to watch for hints about the final puzzle while you do the room to avoid failing the room while completing the final puzzle. We completed the room in 55 minutes.
