The escape room is both fun for the kids and an interesting way for them to develop their skills and imagination. If you are looking for something new and interesting for your child's next holiday, Mystery Rooms can be a great way to organize an unforgettable holiday.
Also known as escape room these are exciting games based on puzzles and riddles. Undoubtedly, the game in them is a strong feeling for both young and old. Ulysses in the adventure, the little ones are transported into an imaginary, but for them completely real world.
Escape rooms are something like a closed maze , which usually consists of one or more rooms. In them, players must find a way out, while solving a series of specially selected puzzle tasks.
Each game has its own plot and the room is arranged and arranged according to it. This contributes to an even greater team spirit and a mysterious atmosphere.
What age is it suitable for?
Age restrictions usually vary by location. Most often, organizers require children to be at least 7 years old to take part in a riddle room, but sometimes younger ones can express themselves (sometimes, however, a companion or animator is required) .
We advise you to choose a group of children of relatively the same age so that the game is equally easy and accessible and at the same time interesting for everyone. Optimally, each participant should be able to contribute to solving at least one of the puzzles.
What should be considered when organizing a children's party in an escape room?
The escape room is a suitable place for a party with or without an occasion . You can organize a children's party for your child's birthday, or for another holiday. However, there are a number of factors to consider when planning a game.
Look for an escape room where parties for children of the appropriate age group are organized.
Our advice is, if the children at the children's party are smaller, ask their parents for their opinion in advance. They will probably be able to tell if the game is suitable for their children and to decide if it will be scare her.
If necessary, you can ask the organizers to remove some of the scarier moments from the game so that you can adapt it for the group.
It should also be noted that the playing time usually depends on the plot and can be within 45 or 90 minutes . The younger the children, the better it should be as short as possible so that they do not get bored and lose patience.
On the other hand, if they are bigger, things are different. For them, the games themselves will be more complicated, so it is recommended that they have a little longer to fully immerse themselves in the adventure.
If most of the kids you've invited have never been to an escape room before, seek advice from the hosts on the appropriate game configuration.
If things are different - your child and his friends are fans of this type of game and have already gone many times, then you should make sure that the adventure does not repeat their previous visits. Ask him out well if he is no longer absorbed in the connection, so you can get an idea and come up with something new for the next party.
Remember to consider the number of children who will be invited . This is important because each plot is designed for a specific range of participants. Typically, puzzles are designed to be played in groups of several children and everyone is required to take an active part in order to pass the challenges.
To make it even more interesting, you can plan to split two or more teams to play against each other. For winners and losers, you can prepare with small prizes for good performance.
Last but not least, the children's escape room must be very well secured.
What topic should we choose?
Choosing the right plot is key to children’s entertainment. The task for parents can be even more difficult if they have decided to surprise the party.
You may want to make sure in advance that your treasure has an interest in such games to make sure he likes it.
Here are some tips from us:
- Players in the escape room most often face a series of tasks that are specially selected to stimulate the imagination and make us move our brains.
- Mysteries and challenges can range from searching for hidden objects to reading mysterious codes or solving some kind of puzzle or logic puzzle.
- Modern equipment nowadays provides opportunities for additional effects in the escape room to provoke the imagination of the participants. Sound, lights and digital effects all make the game look even more real.
The gender and personal preferences of the players are also important when choosing a topic. However, the key is whether you will focus on a story about pirates and Egyptian mummies , or whether the party will be about princesses and castles. Of course, there are girls who like action adventures.
The educational effect of games
The brain is activated and absorbs new things best when we play. Puzzles, mazes and mysterious signs - all this is a great gymnastics for thinking.
That's why escape rooms are a great idea to arrange for children not just a fun gathering, but a real combination of useful and enjoyable experience, supporting your child's critical and analytical thinking.
If your goal is to make the party not only enjoyable, but also useful and educational for the children , you can consider the party having tasks tailored to their knowledge and skills.
For example, can we organize puzzles in math or computer science in their rooms, and why not in linguistics? This will inspire the kids both in terms of play and and in terms of knowledge, realizing how valuable they can be.
Another positive aspect of the game is that it develops children's teamwork skills, as it is mandatory to play in a group. In this way, we help them develop their communication skills.
Very often there is at least one obstacle hidden in the escape room, which requires the participation of more than children in order to be able to cross.
