5 Reasons to Do an Escape Room with Family

27 Jan 2023

Are you looking for an exciting and memorable family activity that will challenge your children's physical, intellectual, and problem-solving skills? A family escape room is the ultimate choice!

A family escape room is a perfect way to bring both parents and kids together in one thrilling space. It’s a fun experience for everyone involved—you get to work alongside each other to solve puzzles and riddles with the help of clues throughout the course, and you’ll laugh together as you learn how to think creatively about solving problems. Read on for five escape room benefits for families:

5 Reasons Why Your Family Should Experience a Family Escape Room


1. Improve your family’s communication skills

We’ve all been there — you’re trying to get your point across and no one in your family seems to understand what you’re saying! Luckily, escape rooms are perfect for families looking to have fun while boosting their communication skills. Escape rooms offer various scenarios that require players to communicate with one another, solve puzzles and overcome challenges as they work together. In order for this to happen, every member of the family needs to be able to communicate effectively with each other and work towards a common goal.

2. Strengthen your family’s problem-solving skills

There are a few ways to practice fixing problems in a low-stress, low-consequence environment. But escape rooms offer just that — a way to problem-solve outside of the real world! If you want your children or grandchildren to develop the ability to think critically and solve problems creatively, then they need to practice doing so in real-life situations like those found in a family escape room game. This will help them develop the ability to make effective decisions under pressure and learn how not just survive but thrive in any situation that might arise in life.

3. Identify each other’s strengths and weaknesses

A family escape room is also an ideal activity for identifying what makes each family member unique and special — while also identifying potential areas for improvement! Doing an escape room as a family helps your children learn more about themselves, which is important for their personal growth and personality development as well as academic performance in school. You’ll also learn how to work together as a family while letting each family member shine in their own way. Escape rooms offer a wide variety of tasks that require a wide variety of skills, from math problem-solving to observational skills. Everyone is sure to find a problem that they will be best at solving.

4. Create fun memories with your family

Escape rooms are all about having fun together. In a day and age where it can be hard to find time to just hang with the family, doing an escape room is a great way to spend some quality time together. After all, you’ll be locked in a room together! From defeating a gang of vampires taking over LA to investigate a deranged doctor’s lair, your family is sure to build memories that you’ll cherish forever.

5. Give everyone a sense of accomplishment

Finally, the best part about escape rooms is that they give everyone a sense of accomplishment when they finish the game. Your family team will have worked hard to solve the puzzles and hints given by the game designers, so you’ll be extra excited to see your efforts pay off when you get out alive! Everyone feels like a winner when they exit an escape room — and who doesn’t want that for their family?!

Escape rooms give families an opportunity to bond over a common interest that is super fun and exciting. And it works! Our family clients tell us that going through an escape room together brings them closer — and that their families leave feeling happy and satisfied no matter which escape room experience they did together that day.
