How To Throw an Escape Room Birthday Party for Kids

Parents, we know how challenging it can be to plan the perfect birthday party for your kids. Cake and ice cream just don’t cut it anymore as you reach the preteen and teen stage, and no one wants to be the “uncool parent” and plan a lame birthday party.

Don’t worry, though. We are hip with the kids (we promise, we even have a TikTok!) and have made the party planning process simple so you can focus on having fun and being the hero to your kids!

Here are our tips for throwing an epic escape room kid's birthday party.

Choose Your Guest List

The first thing to do is decide who is coming to your awesome escape room party. Most of our rooms can hold up to eight players, so keep this in mind as you plan. 

Don’t worry if you have more than eight players, though; you can always book more than one room. It can be fun to have two groups play different rooms and battle it out to see who can escape the fastest.

Whether you are inviting everyone in your class or sticking to a fun family birthday party, your Breakout birthday will be quite the memory maker!

Decide on a Room (Or Rooms!)

We have so many different storylines to choose from, and they are all totally unique! You might want a spooky room like Mystery Mansion for an October birthday or Island Escape for your summer parties. There is something for everyone.

While some rooms are more challenging than others, you don’t have to worry about a room being too hard or easy. You get to control the difficulty level based on the number of hints you ask for!

It’s All About a Theme!

This is what will really set apart your escape room birthday party from the rest. Do your kids love to dress up? Have everyone come to the party wearing costumes that match the story of the room you’ve chosen! Playing Island Escape? Break out the Hawaiian shirts and sunglasses. Playing CLUE? Dress up as detectives. Use your creativity to make the party extra special. 

Send Out Invitations

Don’t worry; we’ve made this step easy too! We have a downloadable PDF invitation you can use to customize your details.
