Kid’s Houston escape room

kids and family playing at Locktopia Escape Room Houston

How young is too young for kids to play an escape room?

Our answer is, it depends on what parents or caretakers are looking for.


We find that the age of 7 is really the first age that kids seem to be ready to play one of our escape rooms. That’s why we don’t charge for kids under seven years old.

If you want children to be engaged and help solve the game puzzles, then waiting a few years is probably better.

But, if you are looking for a fun night out and you don’t have a babysitter, then bring those children under 7 at no cost to you.

That’s what a lot of our gamer families did during the lockdown.

Book our Houston party room and have a unique event

None of our escape games are inappropriate for children, and there is no gore or jump scares to frighten little ones.

I would definitely recommend our Spellcaster escape room for kids. It’s more hands on. Children can move things around and manipulate them.

There is a bit of hide and seek in that castle-themed escape room which children love.

However, Jeffrey, our giant skull that talks is in the Spellcaster. Most young ones don’t seem to mind Jeffrey because of the fun of the atmosphere, but it’s something to keep in mind.

Just don’t tell Jeffrey that, he fancies himself an intimidating figure!

Before you know it, your kids will be ready for Houston dating activities. We have that covered too!

Other advice, listen to your kids in the escape room to see if they have tips for the game puzzle. No matter the age, you might be surprised how they catch things, parents might not. We see children play our games all the time with a unique perspective.
