Ballantyne will be getting its first escape room in early 2018. Timed Out will be located in Torringdon Market shopping center near Earth Fare at 12339 North Community House Road.
Co-owned by husband-and-wife team, Chris and Tina Burfield, Timed Out will initially feature two escape rooms – Precinct, set in a mysterious former police station, and West, taking guests on an adventure back in the days of the Wild West. Two additional rooms are slated to open at a later date, including Depth – which will transport guests beneath the ocean’s surface.
The 3,000-square-foot space is scheduled to open in February 2018 and will be geared for corporate and special events, group gatherings and parties. In addition, Timed Out will be launching individual and team assessment, coaching and development programs by certified instructors in early 2018.
New South Properties of the Carolinas represented Timed Out in the transaction. ZGM Brand is overseeing the experiential brand of the space and Peadon Finein Architecture is designing the interior space.
“We are thrilled about bringing a compelling escape room experience to the Ballantyne area,” said Chris Burfield, co-owner of Timed Out. “Our goal is to create team events that are exciting and challenging – while driving collaboration and recognition of unique talents among the players that will persist long after the team finishes the room. We are aiming for intrigue and fun – from the moment our guests walk into our space to the time they leave.”
