I'm trying to create an escape routine and was wondering if there's any sort of timed device that you must turn off in a certain amount of time or something "bad" happens. It can be something as goofy as an egg timer attached to a contraption that has a machine that will fling a pie in your face after a certain amount of time. Silly example but something to get my point across. This isn't a big stage production so it can be something on a smaller scale

There are any number of programmable electronic timers you can buy and then plug in the device of your choice.

Once you have that, set up the penalty of your choice.

I had a kid in my class that did that, he had a setup with a board filled with nails that would fall on him if he didn't escape in a minute and a half. After the show, we talked to his assistant(?) and he mentioned that the nails weren't actually attached hard, but instead could pop inside like a fake knife to avoid any possible injury in a worst case scenario.

How old was that "kid?" I think that is very impressive and probably not too quick or easy to build. Good job.

This was the end of middle school so like 13-14 ish. He was well known as a magician in the school and he was the main talent in the talent show.
