It's All About Escaping Boredom

Escape room game at a school
If you're anything like us, you've spent much of your life imagining what it would be like to be a Hogwarts student. Wouldn't it be great to escape the ordinary world and enter a place where magic is real? Or may we step in time and explore different cultures and time periods?

In the wizarding world of Harry Potter, students escape their classes by turning to the magical world of Quidditch. Wouldn't it be nice if we could provide the same escape for our students?

With a little creativity, you can easily create escape room experiences for your students that will transport them to different worlds without ever leaving the classroom!

Escape rooms are all the rage these days, and for good reason. They're a great way to challenge yourself and your friends while also having a lot of fun. What's not to love?

How to Create a Perfect Classroom Escape Room?

Kids love making escape room games

Creating the perfect escape room for your students is easier than you might think! With a little creativity, you can easily create an escape room experience that will transport your students to different worlds without ever leaving the classroom!

Here are a few tips to help you get started:

1. Come up With a Plan

The first step to creating a perfect escape room is to come up with a plan. What kind of escape room do you want to create?

Do you want to transport your students to a different world?

Do you want them to solve a mystery?

The possibilities are endless!

This is an important step because it will help you determine what materials you need and how much time you need to prepare. This will also help you design the escape rooms to challenge your students and meet your instructional goals.

2. Plan For Escape

Once you know what kind of escape room you want to create, it's time to start planning for escape! This is where you'll determine what puzzles, clues, and challenges you'll need to create.

This is also the time to start thinking about how you want your escape room to end. Do you want your students to escape together?

Do you want them to have the option to escape individually?

The choice is up to you!

3. Create The Mesmerizing Atmosphere and Add Urgency

An escape room is incomplete without a mesmerizing atmosphere and sense of urgency. This is what will make your escape room truly memorable and exciting for your students.

To create the perfect atmosphere, you'll need to set the stage with props, lighting, and sound. You can also add a sense of urgency by adding a timer or setting a limit on the number of escapees.

You can choose from our wide collection of escape room kits to help you create the perfect escape room experience. Each kit comes with everything you need to create an escape room, including puzzles, clues, props, and more.

4. Make it a Learning Experience

School escape room experiences can also be a great learning opportunity for your students. You can use escape room games to teach essential skills like teamwork, problem-solving, and critical thinking.

You can also use escape room games to teach content-specific skills like math, science, or history. Escape room games are a great way to engage your students and make learning fun!

5. Watch And Enjoy

Once you've created your escape room, it's time to sit back and watch your students enjoy it! Remember how we said escape room games are a great way to bond with classmates?

This is your chance to observe their interactions and enjoy seeing them work through tasks and challenges, just like Dumbledore watching Harry and his friends during their escape from the Death Eaters.

Bonus Tips:

Here are a few bonus tips to help you create the perfect escape room:

Give your students a chance to work together in pairs or small groups before you start the escape room. This will help them get to know each other and learn how to work together as a team.

Have a backup plan for escapees who finish early. You can provide them with additional puzzles to solve or challenges to complete.

Give your students a debriefing after the escape room is over. This is a great opportunity to discuss what they learned and how they can apply it to real-world situations.

So, what are you waiting for? Get started creating your perfect escape room today!
