Let’s face it, planning a birthday party for children can be a very stressful task on its own, and that’s before you’ve even thought about the presents! They invite loads of friends and ask to try something new, but you also need something that isn’t going to break the bank. Fortunately, we have a great solution.
Many first-time escape roomers think these experiences are only for adults, and with many escape rooms, that’s not the case at all. In fact, the activities cater to people of all ages and the escape guides are always on-hand to help the younger generation plan their first escape.
Smaller groups are more personal experiences
When planning your child’s birthday bash it’s reassuring to know that each room will usually work with a smaller number of people, and this ensures no one feels isolated or left behind as the games master will ensure equal attention for everyone. Knowing there’s a max number of people per team should also help to narrow down how many people to invite!
A completely new activity
It’s a great feeling as a parent to be able to plan a party for something that’s not been done hundreds of times over. Your children might be at the stage where planning their own party isn’t quite there yet, but at the same time, they’re too old for pin the tail on the donkey. An escape room will work their minds whilst they enjoy having an awesome time.
Parents get to join in
Children having escape room birthday parties might benefit from having their parent nearby depending on their age. It is of course up to the parent and children whether they go in the room too, but the option is definitely there. Game guides will be there to assist each step of the way, and they can set the puzzles up accordingly to suit every age group of the children.
If the option of a parent going into the room is the right decision, then that absolutely works. Although locking the children in a room to work out puzzles often sees parents wanting to take part anyway as they see how much fun the kids are having!
Booking is straightforward
If you’ve decided an escape room is a right choice for your child’s birthday party, getting everything books couldn’t be easier. You simply select the date and time of the party for your desired location, enter your info and you’re finished. If you have more specific requirements you can simply call the desired escape room to speak to someone directly, and you can specify anything you might not be able to online.
Not only that, but some venues will also be able to pay an extra fee to get party invites printed, or bring them along with you. Some escape rooms offer catering or allow you to bring your own food along, which further takes the stress out of organising the perfect birthday party for your little one.
