TIME CAPSULES & RESIDENTIAL

Time Capsules & Residential

Time Capsules are the ultimate explores. Highly guarded by the community, don’t expect to find or gain access to these locations easily.


They are typically houses or farms that have been left to rot away with the original possessions intact. Many items of value live within Time Capsules, as well as personal letters, documents and a life time of memories.


For this reason, they can attract thieves and the wrong kind of explorer. If you are aware of a Time Capsule location be very wary of whom you share it with. Residential venues are dilapidated old houses that have been abandoned, unloved, forgotten about and left to decay naturally.
