Island Escape

This adventure takes place on a tropical island with a rumbling volcano threatening to erupt. As the only people left on the island, your family must work together to get to safety before the lava reaches the shore.
Island Escape is truly an all-ages adventure. No math skills are required for this room, and there are lots of surprises for kids to find. Find out where you can play Island Escape here!

Museum Heist

In this all-ages adventure, a rare collection of art goes missing. You must break your way into the thief's home, follow clues, find the stolen goods, and escape before the clock runs out. 
We've found that kids love to find things, and that's what this room is all about! And while suspenseful, the room doesn't feel creepy or scary. Find out where you can play Museum Heist here!

Additional Tips for Parents

Escape rooms are more than just a fun way to spend an hour. They can teach valuable lessons in communication and teamwork. Here are a few tips to help your kids get the most out of their escape room experience:
Let them try things out. Kids want to feel like they were an active part of the adventure (even if they don't actually solve any clues). So if they find something or have an idea, let them give it a try!
Ask for more hints. At Breakout, you can ask for as many clues as you want during the game. When playing with kids, you may want to ask for a few more nudges from your game master than when playing with only adults.
Remember that it's about the experience, not about winning or losing. Even if they don't escape the room, we've found that kids usually have a great time at Breakout. The best times are when they felt like an active part of the game. So remember to focus on having fun!
Escape rooms are not just about solving clues - they're about making valuable memories. Ready to make some memories of your own? Book your adventure now!
