TIME MISSION TO HOST COLLEGE CHALLENGE
Time Mission®, will host a College Challenge on Thursday, March 7th
with student participants from Rockland Community College, St. Thomas Aquinas, Dominican University and Ramapo College.
The four colleges will be tasked with completing as many of the 32 challenge rooms as possible in a one-hour timeframe with the goal of getting the highest score. The college whose teams have the highest combined score will win $500 for the school’s scholarship fund. Second place will receive $250 and third and fourth place will win $100.
Time Mission is an indoor adventure game that transports players into the past or the future in a fun, immersive experience. Teams work their way through up to 32 different portals where they collect skill points by completing challenges in less than 2-5 minutes. There are portals for different skills, i.e., intelligence, strength, coordination, and speed, and each one propels you backwards or forwards into a different time zone! Teams can repeat, or abandon, rooms at any time to improve their score or find the next clues on the mission before the hourglass runs out and they are returned to the present.
Representing Rockland Community College Legal Studies, team, the "Justice League" will have three Legal Studies students who are trained in analytical thinking, problem-solving, and attention to detail, which are all qualities that can make them good at puzzles.
"I am incredibly proud of my students for their efforts in the Time Mission College Challenge competition. Their dedication and hard work are a true testament to the character and potential of the students here at Rockland Community College," said Patricia Szobonya, Associated Professor of Legal Studies and Criminal Justice at RCC. "Supporting student scholarships is vital to ensuring that we can continue to provide equal opportunity career growth to our community, and I encourage everyone to contribute to the Rockland Community College Foundation in any way they can,” she added.
In December Time Mission celebrated its grand opening with a fundraiser for local non-profits. More than 50 representatives from Meals on Wheels, Girl Scouts, Wonder Girls, and Nanuet Interact Club (playing for Nanuet/West Nyack Rotary) participated in a fun Charity Challenge and were the first to experience the new Time Mission challenge rooms.
Time Mission, an indoor adventure game for kids and adults, opened its first location in Rhode Island in 2021. Every portal has its own challenge where intelligence, strength, coordination, or speed are tested. Time Mission sends teams of 2- 5 people through up to 32 different portals where they collect skill points by completing challenges in less than 2-5 minutes. Teams can be made up of individuals of different ages as some will excel at one skill, while others will be better at another, making it a perfect family or group activity. Participants may choose to only collect points or start a secret mission to unlock special bonus features and achievements. Teams can repeat, or abandon, rooms at any time to improve their score or find the next clues on the mission before time runs out. Each portal transports you to the past or future in a fun, immersive experience.
Time Mission at the Palisades Center will be open for corporate team building, family events, birthday parties, Bar Mitzvahs, and just friendly group fun. Recommended age is 6 years and up. Sessions can be booked for 60, 90 or 120 minutes. Time must be reserved online at www.timemission.com.
