Top Escape Room Storylines to Try With Your Family

We all love a good escape room – the thrill of being locked in a room with only an hour to solve a series of puzzles and escape before time runs out. But what if you could share that excitement with your kids by choosing a family-friendly storyline?

Escape room storylines are usually designed for adults, but that doesn't mean they can't be enjoyed by families too. They make escape rooms more challenging and fun and can be a great way to bond with your kids.

Escape Rooms Make For the BEST Family Bonding Experiences


Imagine being locked in a room with your family and having to solve puzzles together in order to escape. It sounds like a lot of fun, right?

Now imagine having the same fun but with the added challenge of a family-friendly escape room storyline. This could be anything from a treasure hunt to a mystery that needs to be solved.

How Escape Room Storylines Can Enhance Your Experience

envy-michael-smiling-players

Escape room storylines can make your escape room experience more immersive and exciting. They can also add an element of competition, as you race against the clock to escape the room before time runs out.

Moreover, escape room storylines can be a great way to bond with your family and friends. Solving puzzles together is a great way to build teamwork and communication skills.

Remember the plot for Frodo's escape from Mordor? Now imagine being in an escape room and having to work together to get out before the time runs out.

What Type of Storylines are There?

There are escape room storylines to suit all tastes, from family-friendly to more adult themes. In general, escape room storylines can be divided into two categories:

1. Adult/Mature

These are escape room storylines that are really only suitable for adults or older teens. Horror/Thriller escape rooms and some murder mystery storylines are good examples of this, as they can be quite intense and may not be suitable for younger children.

For instance, one popular escape room storyline is 'The Legend of the Wendigo', which is based on Native American folklore. In this escape room, players have to solve a series of puzzles in order to escape from a Wendigo, which is a mythical creature that is said to haunt the woods.

Another popular escape room storyline is 'The House on the Hill', a horror-themed escape room in which players have to solve a series of puzzles to escape from a haunted house.

2. Family-Friendly

Family-Friendly escape room storylines are more suitable for families with younger children, as they are generally less intense and more fun. They are designed to be enjoyed by all ages and can be a great way to bond with your kids.

One popular family-friendly escape room storyline is 'The Treasure of the lost city', which is a treasure hunt-themed escape room. In this escape room, players have to solve a series of puzzles in order to find the treasure that is hidden in the lost city.

Another popular family-friendly escape room storyline is 'The Mystery of the Missing Painting', a mystery-themed escape room. In this escape room, players have to solve a series of puzzles to find the missing painting.

Which Storyline Should You Choose?

The type of escape room storyline that you choose should depend on your family's preferences.

If you have younger children, then it is best to choose a family-friendly escape room storyline. If you have older children or adults in your family, then you may want to choose a more mature escape room storyline.
