We're open Tuesday to Sunday, throughout the year - and are located in London Fields, which is a ten minute journey from London Liverpool Street station, via overground train, our postcode is E8 3SB.
Our experiences last 90-100 minutes. We have two experiences in operation -

Just select two vacant time slots which have similar starting times, then compare your scores afterwards. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to drop us a line at email@example.com.
IS THERE AN AGE LIMIT?
Due to the complexity of the challenge, the game is open to children over the age of 10 with adult supervision and 18+ without supervision.
Although we strive to make Time Run accessible to all, due to the nature of the experience and the placements of our buildings fire exits there are some accessibility limitations within the gaming spaces.
The Lance Of Longinus is designed to be as wheelchair friendly as possible: the event is held on the ground floor, and there is a minimum width of 800mm at any one point within the experience.
However, there are some physical components to some of the challenges that may necessitate a team of mixed ability. Please contact us to discuss your requirements before booking and we will investigate if and how we can accommodate.
Due to fire exit complications, The Celestial Chain is, unfortunately, not wheelchair friendly.

I'M PREGNANT! CAN I PLAY?
Congratulations! We have plenty of pregnant Time Runners safely journey through history. Naturally, you play at your own risk, but there should be no reason or causes for worry. You will not be able to sit down for about sixty minutes - and there may be low lighting, just so you know.
DRUNK AND DISORDERLY POLICY
Due to the nature of Time Run's design and staffing, we are not able to police intoxicated visitors. If you are visibly inebriated, you may be refused entry or your experience curtailed. In a similar fashion, if you are disruptive, unruly or present a threat to our environments or staff we may be forced to terminate your adventure.
CAN I GET A REFUND?
Time Run is a ticketed, live event. Once a booking is confirmed, refunds, cancellations and reschedules are not possible. In addition, latecomers will not get a refund or reschedule: much like a theatre show, the show continues with or without you - your timekeeping is your responsibility, not ours!
ON THE DAY
