Escape Rooms For Children
11-18 Years of Age
FOR 11-13 YEARS OLD
Escape room birthday party is a unique event.
Children, who love puzzles, riddles, board games and solving mysteries, will enjoy playing escape rooms very much and have a good chance at “escaping”.
Please note that the games are logical and mental challenges. It requires teamwork, abstract thinking and problem solving. Children who love maths, science, riddles etc enjoy escape rooms very much.
The entire purpose of an escape room is for a team to challenge themselves in trying to solve all the puzzles before the time runs out.
This involves teamwork and logical skills. This is why escape rooms are primarily designed for adults. In terms of an “escape room age”, children ages 11 and 12 are considered to be quite young. They usually require more hints on how to solve puzzles then adults.
While the game masters are there to help with some hints where needed, the purpose of “escaping” is diluted when every single puzzle must be explained, which is what happens when there are too many children. To avoid disappointments of not “escaping” before the time runs out (60 minutes), the children must want to be there.
Escape rooms are played best with a specific group of close friends with similar interests.
Smaller groups work best 5-7 children. There has to be a willingness to play together as a team.
Depending on the group size and ages, 1 or 2 accompanying adults must either go inside an escape room with the children or to stay in the reception area. Please enquire with us on email@example.com
Maximum number of children for a birthday party is 10 participants.
Important Note: children younger than 11 years old can only play in a group with adults. Due to puzzle complexity (mainly cognitive skills development before the age of 11) our escape rooms are not suitable for a younger age for parties. Children 9/10 years old can play together with the adults and enjoy it very much.
From 14 years old and up
No Adults Required
Teens love escape rooms! If your child loves puzzles, riddles, board games and solving mysteries then they must try an escape room.
Each game has a storyline. The story unfolds as the team solves puzzles around the room. The goal is to figure out the way to “escape” before the time runs out. Each team has sixty minutes to escape.
Young adults from 14 years of age and up can play our escape rooms independently. A gamemaster will guide them via video and audio system. Accompanying adults are welcome to leave for an hour or wait in our reception area.
