There’s a new craze and it’s all about the ‘escape room’ experience. But what’s it all about…well as the name suggests, you have to ‘escape the room’, and you do this in a group by solving several games & puzzles. Originating from Asia, these popular strategy based room games have evolved over the years, with themed Escape Rooms becoming extremely popular over the last couple of years.
There’s often a theme involved, or a story being played out and the room will be decorated according to the theme or story. Think outside the box, to solve the challenges which can range from logical puzzles to small crosswords, to putting together physical objects & pattern matching. It’s a great team activity and that’s why it’s so perfect for parties. You often have to find a key, lock combination or uncover mechanisms that open the locked door. Normally the participants will have 60 minutes to solve all the riddles, puzzles and clues to escape.
Reseach the suitability before booking for your child’s age range, some Escape Rooms are designed for 8+ and others are 16+, so keep this in mind party planning!
