Escape rooms are spaces full of riddles that can stimulate the imagination in a pleasant and thought-provoking way. They are so exciting that as we play them we immerse ourselves to the extent that we experience the same sensations as when practicing extreme sports while at the same time being in a perfectly protected environment. In escaped rooms we usually enter a room or series of rooms where we are supposed to be locked, and our goal is to unravel the "secrets" of the room so that we can get out. The interior is specially prepared and arranged to fit the story and contribute to the mysterious feeling of the whole experience.
In some cases, in the scenario, the exit of the participants from the escaped room is intertwined with a parallel story that solving the puzzles is expected to unravel. This may be, for example, a looming large-scale threat to a larger group of society or the entire planet, or it may be a supernatural phenomenon that is pushing itself out of the world. Coming out of the room, according to the scenario we prevail over the great evil, preventing the looming apocalyptic events and everything comes into place.
Escape rooms for kids - the important things about a great party
Kids' party in an escaped room can be done on any occasion - Birthday, Halloween, Holiday start / end, Christmas holidays and more. However, what should we be careful about and what should we consider when organizing such an event?
First, we need to look for the right location to offer escaped rooms specifically designed for children, where your little ones can have a great time at their party. If the kids are young, ask everyone's parents if they would feel good inindoor conditions to make sure they don't get too scared during the game. Ask the organizers for assistance, if necessary.
How to choose the theme for our kids party in the escapade room?
Choosing the theme for the escaped room is key. If the party is a surprise, you will need to select the game parameters on behalf of your child. There are a few things to keep in mind.
Usually, in order to solve the mystery and succeed in escaping a room, we have to deal with a series of puzzles and tasks designed to provoke and stir our mind. These tasks can be any - find or just to notice certain objects, including secret portals, or objects, to understand the significance of ancient signs, hieroglyphics and drawings, to make mathematical considerations, or to arrive at the answer to a mystery.
Modern interactive escapade rooms are equipped with the ability for sound and light effects that enhance the authenticity and emotional impact of the game. This is especially enjoyable for kids who feel like explorers, discoverers and real action heroes. The scenarios where our little participants are cast as good fighters with evil are always interesting because it makes children feel even more proud of themselves when they win.
For a child's escape room to be interesting, the puzzles in it must be varied, exciting, and appropriate to the degree of difficulty that suits him or her. Most escaped rooms include some dose of scare as part of the effect of the experience. However, care must be taken that they are not too scary so as not to scare a baby.
If you want a specific targeting of skills, so that you can choose more complex tasks, which, however, do not make it difficult for the children in relation to their profile, you can opt for an escapade scenario with a predominance of mathematical or computer-related tasks, or a room focusing on language skills. Such topics are very appropriate for a children's party on the eve or beginning of the school year. It will help children to become enthusiastic about knowledge and the time to go to school. Make sure that all the puzzles and fun in the room are well secured and tailored to the skills and safety of small players.
The theme of the game should also be chosen according to the gender and preferences of the children. Consider and discuss with the organizers beforehand whether your child is more excited than stories about cowboys and Indians, Egyptian pyramids and mummies, pirates or aliens, or maybe you need a more girly party with princesses and wizards.
New and new skills that we can acquire
It's no secret that one learns best through play. Therefore, escaped rooms are not just another way to entertain our children at their party. They are also a great way for your child to acquire new knowledge and develop new interests as well as the ability to think analytically, critically and flexibly.
After attending a themed party in an escapade room, your child may become interested in, for example, the history of ancient cultures or space.
In addition, groups of 7-10 or more children enter the escape rooms, and the stories themselves are so constructed that different participants need to be involved in solving the individual tasks, so that, in the end, everyone can really contribute with something. There are also tasks that are specifically designed so that * they cannot be solved by just one or two *, and the participation of the whole group is required. This helps to improve the communication and leadership skills of the children , which in turn will be of great benefit to them in their school life as well as in the future.
According to the requirements of the venue, players can be between 7 and 16 years old, even younger children may be admitted. Depending on their age, children enter with or without an escort (animator or parent) in the escaping room. It is recommended that the groups be relatively homogeneous in terms of the age of the participants, so that the games are equally interesting to everyone and everyone can contribute to the tasks.
If, however, we need to have younger children in an escaped room, the scenario can be tailor-made so that they can also participate in finding the way out of the room. For example, an important clue might be made a place, for example, behind a cupboard where only a tiny hand can reach. This should also be taken into account in the pre-development of the scenario.
