Last night I was invited to check out Kids Escape Room with Carter and a few other kids and we had a blast.
Created by Carolyn & Keri (who also run Piano Stars) they have been running kids camps since 2004 and have a love for Escape Rooms themselves. So much so that they decided to create Kids Escape Room for kids with a passion for solving puzzles to experience over the summer.
How does it work?
Located in St.Albert, Kids Escape Room is for kids ages 6-16 yrs for groups of 2-6 kids and different clues are tailored to different age Each adventure goes for an hour and several time slots are available for each of the dates.
Kids will have the opportunity to move through multiple rooms and the Escape Rooms include combination locks, key locks, door locks, combination safes & semi-automated puzzles. Teamwork is important and Carolyn & Keri watch the group through camera set up and communicate through walkie talkies.
The group of kids that I was with we finished with just seconds to spare. Seconds!! But man was it a rush and it’s all Carter has been talking about.
Kids Escape Room Themes
Welcome to the Jungle – July 11th & 13th
You and your group of friends are prepared to enter the Jungle of Mystery to spend one night at the camp. Legend says that those who don’t solve the mystery in time will be trapped in the jungle forever. So far, there has been no record of a successful attempt. Will your group have what it takes to be the first group to make it out?
X – Marks the Spot – July 18th & 19th
You are on the most amazing tropical vacation enjoying a walk along the beach when you spot something……a piece of paper in the sand. What could it be? A map! A TREASURE MAP!! Only true friends will be able to read this map & solve puzzles along the way to find the treasures that await. But beware… you see a pirate ship in the distance & the captain could show up any minute! Be quick!
The Science Lab – July 25th & 26th
As young researchers, you never know what formulas you are working on next or what experiments you will be performing each day. This week your team is on the verge of a breakthrough! There’s only one problem. The work is extremely time sensitive and you only have 60 minutes to complete the task at hand. Will this be your week to make history?
Ready, Set, Glow – August 1st & 2nd
