Fun for the family
ClueHQ are likely one of many escape rooms running special offers for families as we enter the school holidays. In their case, you can get a game for £49 as long as it has at least one and at most two adults, and one to four under 16s. The regular price for two players in Birmingham £44, so it basically lets you add on as many kids as will fit for a fiver.
(When I first saw this offer, it was very stringent about needing at least one child, and thought that maybe it was actually even cheaper than a regular two player game, thus driving enthusiasts to take up babysitting, but turns out that isn’t the case.)
Whether you want to take your kids to an escape room is another question! We saw some parents with some really young (under 8) kids at Omescape a few weeks ago, which seemed somewhat weird given that the themes of those rooms tend towards horror, if not being actually scary. I’ve also heard horror stories of parents dropping kids off at rooms and using them as a short term baby-sitting service!
I’m going to be inviting my parents to play Cliffhanger Rooms with the Escape Review team, which is the closest we’ll get! Let us know your experiences of inter-generation escaping!
Offer available at ClueHQ Birmingham and Warrington, Mon-Thu, with code TEAMFAMILY throughougt August. Limited slots, first-come, first-served, requires booking three days in advance.
