Breakout 902 Escape Rooms are Perfect for Kids’ Birthday Parties
Thomas was turning 11 and wanted a fun idea for his birthday party. He also loves puzzles and mysteries, so we knew the Breakout 902 Escape Room in Coldbrook would be the perfect place for him to celebrate with friends!
Our family had done the Bank Heist room when it first opened. Although we weren’t successful that time, we still had a lot of fun.
Then, with friends, I completed the Revolutionary Room and we got out with 30 seconds to spare!
This Revolutionary Room can sometimes be too scary for kids as a lot of it is in the dark, and it’s a high level of difficulty.
However, Aunt Edna’s Condo, was graded a 7/10 for difficulty, and I had seen on Facebook that other kids had gone to this room for their birthday parties with great success!
So, this solidified the idea in our minds to go to the Breakout 902 Escape Rooms in Coldbrook for Thomas’ party!
How it Works
Besides Thomas, only one other child had completed one of the Escape Rooms. A few of them (including Thomas) had done several Breakout EDU games in their classroom, so they knew the routine.
The other kids were a bit nervous, as they didn’t know what to expect – just like adults are! Some of them watched videos of other breakout rooms on YouTube, and tried to get some hints and strategies before coming.
However, nothing beats just jumping in and doing it for the first time!
Before you go into the room, one of the attendants fully explains how it works, and teaches players how to open the locks.
Then, you head to the room and the one-hour timer starts!
Three clues are allowed, and you can indicate if you want gentle nudges from time to time.
Kids’ Birthday Party
When you go to the Breakout 902 Escape Rooms for a kids’ birthday party, the birthday person goes in for free! And, because it was for children, one adult could go in free as well to act as a guide.
I got to watch from the control room in the back, and let me tell you, the kids were often right before the adult!
Numbers and Ages
We had 7 children and 1 adult in the room. This was a great number and allowed enough tasks for everyone to do, and people weren’t getting in the way.
This group of kids ranged in age from 9 to 11 years old, grades 4 and 5.
The Party Room
Along with any party, you can also book use of their party room. So, after finishing the game, we went into another room for cake and presents, making this one of the easiest birthday parties EVER!
In the room, there are enough chairs for many guests, and a fridge.
And, you don’t need to break in or out to use it!
The kids managed to escape with just 3 minutes left on the clock! They found Aunt Edna’s items she needed, and her insurance policy!
Because it is a secret, I cannot take pictures of the room itself.
Breakout 902 Escape Rooms makes such a fun outing whether you go for a birthday party or not!
However, this was probably the easiest birthday party we have ever put together, and it was great to hear the kids say how much they loved it and can’t wait to go back and try another room!
It’s great for teamwork, problem-solving, coping with stress, and having fun!
