You’ve probably already heard about escape rooms from your friends, or maybe you’ve even tried a room yourself! An escape room, also known as a quest room or escape game, is an indoor game in which players are locked in a room and must find clues, solve puzzles and complete tasks in order to escape within a certain time limit.
There are thousands of escape games, each with their own distinctive themes and stories. Different rooms have different time limits and team sizes, some rooms are better for beginners and some for professional teams, some are of classic style and others full of modern electronic devices.
Escape rooms are often thought of as an activity for adults or teenagers, but can it suit families with children too? Is it worth a try?
ESCAPE ROOMS AS A FAMILY OUTING
When was the last time your family spent at least an hour without any phones or devices, working together and dedicating all your attention to one another? How about getting everyone together to try something new and fun? Learn how to collaborate and bond as a family!
That’s what escape room adventures are all about. The team will have to utilize the skills and experience of every family member to beat the clock. Escape games are a great alternative to the cinema or video games, as during the quest you become the main characters of your own story! How exciting is that?
“In fact, children often play escape games better than the adults!” – Sam Lane, Game Master of Lock’d Escape Rooms.
