Escape Rooms are super popular with adults but did you know that we have one here in Lane County that is aimed at kids ages 6 & up? & it has a Nutcracker theme! Too fun!
Today we get to hear all about it from Jenny, the owner of Escape the Room Oregon.
Tell us about The Nutcracker Escape Room...
The Nutcracker Escape Room is our special family Christmas room. We have adapted our Spy Vs Spy room with new puzzles, holiday decor and of course a new storyline. All of our rooms are fully immersive. Spy vs Spy takes place in a 1980's themed apartment belonging to a Russian spy. Transforming it into the Nutcracker just made sense and it has been so much fun to decorate and theme everything for a retro Christmas vibe.
The idea for the Nutcracker Escape Room came from....
We knew we wanted to do a special room for Christmas and while we had a million ideas, this one felt special. The storyline was fun and something that we could add a lot of surprises and twists and turns to make it very entertaining.
My personal favorite part of Nutcracker Escape Room is...
the puzzles. We design and build all of our own puzzles. The team created some really beautiful and fun puzzles that fit really well with the theme and storyline. They are so unique and strike the perfect balance of challenging but doable.
Parents should know...
Kids should know...
Not everyone wins the room. Escape rooms are supposed to be a challenge and if everyone was guaranteed a win, it would be. Count each thing you find and each puzzle you solve as a win....because it is. If you solve the room in less than 60 minutes, that's awesome. If don't, it's ok too.
My best tip for solving the Nutcracker Escape Room is...
Well, that would ruin the challenge! But, I will say that the trick to being successful with any escape room is communication and teamwork. Oh, and never giving up.
The youngest age for the Nutcracker Escape Room is...
6 for public/open bookings but you know your child best. If you think a private booking would be best (meaning no one else can book in with you) then it's a good idea to do that. If you do have a private booking, the room is yours.
To finish the Nutcracker Escape Room it usually takes...
Well, you only get 60 minutes in the room. You may finish and you may not. It really depends on how well you and your team communicate and work together to solve the puzzles. Some people might finish in 45 minutes and some might not finish at all.

& one more thing...
Be careful. Escape rooms are addicting. If you do develop an addiction, not to worry. We have several other rooms for you to try. Each of our rooms are unique, challenging, and a lot of fun.

Thanks so much, Jenny! We love the idea of doing an escape room with kids because of the reason you said, so often they think differently than adults! Thanks so much for making one just for kiddos in Lane County!
