We all know how difficult it is to keep children entertained. They are constantly growing and changing, so what was once a favourite activity may no longer be enjoyable to them. When it comes to birthday parties, we often turn to the standard fare of laser tag, pizza, and goodie bags to keep them happy. These are all fantastic ideas, but what if there was a way to make their birthday party even more special?
In this blog post, we’ll outline our top seven reasons why you should consider hosting an escape room kids birthday party. Escape rooms may not be the first thing that comes to mind when planning a birthday party, yet they’re the perfect way to make your child’s special day truly memorable. If you’re on the fence about whether or not an escape room party is suitable for your child, be sure to read on!
1. It’s a unique party idea that will excite all of their friends.
If you’re looking for a unique party idea that will excite your child and all of their friends, an escape room birthday party is the perfect solution! Escape rooms are still a relatively new concept, so the experience is likely to be a novelty.
Escape rooms are also excellent at building mystery and suspense, which will only add to the excitement leading up to the party. If you want to guarantee a party that schoolmates will talk about for weeks in advance, you can’t go wrong with an escape room!
2. They will be challenged and have to use their problem-solving skills.
At an escape room birthday party, your child and their friends will enter a themed room where they will have to solve a series of puzzles to escape. We carefully design each puzzle to put their mental muscles to the test, which means that escape rooms aren’t just a lot of fun – they’re also challenging!
Escape rooms are intrinsically rewarding and present an excellent opportunity for the kids to exercise their brains and sharpen practical skills in a fun and interactive way. Check out our recent blog post, Escape Rooms: A Game-Changer for STEM Education, to learn more about how escape rooms can aid in your child’s intellectual development.
3. You can find escape rooms themed around your child’s favourite things.
Escape rooms are versatile and can be themed around pretty much anything. At Mindshift Escape Rooms, we understand that not everyone has the same interests. That’s why we have created escape rooms that accommodate a wide range of themes. With one of our meticulously designed escape rooms, you can hunt for Bigfoot, explore a wizard’s tower, or time travel to a dystopian Earth. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg! If your child has a favourite book, movie, or TV show, the chances are that one of our escape rooms will be a perfect fit.
4. An escape room birthday party is an opportunity to unplug from technology and enjoy some good old-fashioned fun!
In today’s world, it’s all too easy for kids (and adults!) to get caught up in their screens for hours on end. We’re not saying there’s anything wrong with technology – but sometimes it’s important to unplug and enjoy some good old-fashioned fun.
According to a Child Health Poll conducted by The Royal Children’s Hospital Melbourne, Australian kids spend 4.6 hours a day using screens on weekdays and 4.5 hours on weekends. That’s more than 32 hours a week! So, if you’re looking for a birthday party that will help your child enjoy some quality, face-to-face time with their friends, an escape room is the perfect solution.
5. They’ll love feeling like they’re part of a real-life adventure.
Escape rooms specialise in providing an immersive experience that will make your kids feel like they’re part of a real-life adventure. From the moment they walk through the door, they’ll be transported to another world in which their imaginations can run wild. From the deepest, darkest woods of North America to mysterious tiki islands, they’ll be swept up in the excitement of their escape room adventure and feel like the heroes of their own story. And who knows, they might even learn a thing or two along the way!
