Escape Room Birthdays Are IN!

Birthdays are SPECIAL...especially for kids who wait all year for their big day! Teenagers might not be as excited about their birthday as they were when they were younger. They might no longer want a big traditional birthday party with boring cakes, games, and goodie bags. They might expect something a little more "cool" and "exciting."

Now in the real world, we can't have Gandalf break into our home and whisk our kids away to Middle Earth for their birthday, but we sure can come close with the next best thing...an escape room birthday party!

Escape rooms are becoming increasingly popular as people of all ages are looking for something new and different to do. They provide a unique challenge that is perfect for birthday parties.

As a parent, you might be thinking, " escape room, birthday party...sounds like a lot of work". But don't worry, we've got you covered! Today, we will show you how to throw an amazing escape room birthday party for kids that they will never forget.

What is an Escape Room?

Playing Lost Mummy escape room game at home

Unlike the chamber of secrets, an escape room is a physical adventure game in which players are locked in a room and have to use elements of the room to solve a series of puzzles and escape within a set time limit.

Escape rooms are perfect for birthday parties because they are exciting, challenging, and can be tailored to any age group.

Here's what you need to know to throw an escape room birthday party that your child and their friends will love:

What You'll Need to Throw an Amazing Escape Room Birthday Party

1. Party Invitations

Forget the boring birthday party invitations that you used when you were a kid. These days, you can find escape room-themed party invitations online or make your own.

If you're feeling creative, you can even make your escape room by turning your house or backyard into a giant puzzle. Just be sure to include all the important details on the invitation, such as the date, time, and address of the party.

3. Puzzles and Clues

Of course, you can't have an escape room birthday party without puzzles and clues! You can find escape room kits online or create your own..

If you're creating your own, be sure to make the puzzles and clues age-appropriate for your child and their friends. You don't want to make the puzzles too easy or too difficult.

Also, be sure to hide the puzzles and clues around the room or house so that the kids have to search for them. This will add an element of fun and excitement to the party.

The timer can be as simple as an egg timer or a stopwatch. You can also find escape room timers online.
