Escapes rooms are becoming a popular activity for adults to do together, but the themes tend to skew mature, focusing on inescapable horror situations such as zombie apocalypses, murder dungeons, or DMV lines. What if the kids want to try their hand at solving puzzles, too? To address that, Family Escape Room has designed its escape rooms specifically for tweens ages 10+, crafting fun scenarios that unleash families' latent creativity in service of sniffing out clues, puzzling out riddles, and ferreting out hidden keys. The kid-friendly challenges give youngsters a chance to learn all sorts of valuable skills, including how to work as a team, communicate clearly, and think through a problem rather than always asking the grouchy old neighbor for help.
