How it works

The Pi Institute for Time Travelers allows you and your team to explore the hidden side of Austin with deeply engaging, tactile content! This beautifully designed experience immerses you in a time travel-themed adventure. Acclaimed time travel experts, DeLorean McClockers and Interstella Continuum will orient you to your new, discombobulating situation in this outdoor escape room that offers something for everyone.

Your group will explore an iconic Austin neighborhood, solve thoughtful puzzles, and take hilarious prompted photographs. This journey culminates in a delightful final challenge using pieces from each clue, followed by a prize ceremony to name the winners. Afterward, we’ll send you a highly curated collection of all your best photos. With Time Travel Academy, you’ll learn a lot, have some fun, find deeper personal connections, and, most importantly, create lasting memories.
