Family Fun Directory of Things To Do with Kids:
Escape Frenzy is a game in which players have to solve puzzles and clues to figure out how to escape from a room before an hour runs out. These games are designed for adults and are best for ages 10 and up. Pre-teens may struggle to solve the clues on their own, but could have fun working with an adult. Kids ages 10-15 are only allowed to play with an adult in the room. Teens 16 and 17 can play without a parent; however, a parent needs to come with to sign them in and sign the waiver. Children 9 and younger are only allowed to participate in private parties when a family has booked the entire room.
Birthday Parties at Escape Frenzy
Escape rooms can be rented for birthday parties, but you need to pay for 10 people to be guaranteed a private room. Since these are the same games played for non-birthday parties, the same age guidelines and restrictions exist. There is a $50 private event fee a six ticket minimum if you book outside of regular hours.
