However, there are quite a lot of Escape Rooms that are ideal for activities with children or even for a children’s birthday party.

Why Escape Rooms are a valuable experience for children 

More and more families are planning their weekend trip to a nearby Escape Room. However, there is one difficulty when it comes to planning – to find those Escape Rooms that are suitable for children.

At pause&play, we are convinced that Escape Rooms can be a great intergenerational experience. Thanks to their team-building properties, they can also bring groups of friends and families closer together: When you’re on a mission, you have to communicate, think outside the box and simply try things out.

Some rooms are intellectually challenging for younger generations, which is why – depending on the age of the children – it is advisable that a few adults to play along. But from the age of 12, most kids can play independently, even without adults. 

Escape Rooms are great fun and can also be educationally valuable. Children learn important soft skills such as teamwork and communication; in the Escape Room, you support each other and let others have their say with their ideas. At the same time, curiosity, intuition and problem-solving skills are encouraged – these are also skills in which the little ones are sometimes ahead of the adults.

We providers are good at assessing the age at which children can play in an Escape Room, so you should always follow the age recommendations. There are usually separate recommendations for children as co-players (in a mixed team with adults) and for children as sole players.

In non-scary Escape Rooms, younger children can also be present – but then they tend to take on a spectator role, as the riddles are simply too difficult. They can, however, play their part in searching for and finding clues.

Which children’s escape rooms are available at pause&play?

At our locations in Hamburg and Stuttgart, young people aged 12 and over can take part in the Escape Room adventure. As all our rooms have a medium level of difficulty, you enjoy a large selection of different missions to choose from:

In “Vanished without a trace” you have to find a missing person, in “Inherited double life” you have to pass the test of the thieves’ guild and in “CSI heart attack” you solve a tricky criminal case. 

For adolescents aged between 12 and 15, the Escape Rooms can still be quite challenging at times, which is why they need help from the game master more often and are likely to take a little longer for each task. But that’s not a bad thing, a few tips are part of the game. Basically, the pause&play Escape Rooms are already feasible for this age group.

Children under 12 are of course also very welcome here and even enjoy free entry (one child per adult). In this case, the kids play together with their parents, family members or supervisors.
