About Kids Escape Room

Kids Escape Room was created in 2017 by Carolyn & Keri from Piano Stars. Carolyn & Keri have been running Spring Break & Summer camps for kids since 2004.

In their spare time, Carolyn & Keri LOVE to go to live escape rooms! They have been to over 30 escape rooms! One day they thought "wouldn't it be awesome to create escape rooms especially designed for kids?!?". So they did.

Each theme will have multiple rooms to move through & include lots combination locks, key locks, door locks, combination safes & semi automated puzzles so there are lots of opportunities for kids to "get a turn" to do something.

All the puzzles are related to the theme. Kids can ask for as many hints as they like. We do not just give the answer to the puzzle but we will give guidance to help them figure it out.
The location of Kids Escape Room is Carolyn's piano studio in St. Albert.

We make use of multiple rooms for a jam packed 60 min adventure.

$40 per session/group
(you have up to 60 min to escape)

Capacity: 2-6 kids aged 6-16
(all kids included in the $40 fee)

FAQ

  1. Do I have to have a group of 6 kids to participate?
    No! We recommend you have at least 2 kids working together to make your experience more fun but any number from 1-6 kids at a time is allowed.
  2. Do all the kids need to be the same or similar age?
    No! Mixed age levels are allowed. Just keep in mind that older kids will generally be able to solve the puzzles faster than younger kids. If you plan to send multi-aged siblings/friends you might want to have a conversation about trying to let each other have a turn to open locks or help out in the puzzles. The escape room has over 10 puzzles & locks so there is lots of opportunity to have a turn to "do" something.
  3. Do you make the puzzles harder for older kids?
    Yes! We have sets of clues tailored for different age groups. If you are coming in with a group of 6 year olds your puzzles will be easier than if you are a group of 16 year olds. We want the kids to be able to do the puzzles with little or no adult assistance. We ask participant's ages when you register so we know what level of difficulty you need.
  4. Can I sign up now & tell you my friends' names later?
    Yes! You can add, change or remove names of the kids in your group anytime. Just send us an email about it: fun@kidsescaperoom.ca
  5. How much does it cost?
    You book a 1 hour session for $40 for your group. You can have up to 6 kids in the group for that price. Feel free to divide up the cost amongst members of your group. If you have only 2 kids, its still $40. You can decide if you want less people so you can do more of the work yourself OR more people so you have more brains in the room to help solve the puzzles.
  6. Have Carolyn & Keri made escape rooms before?
    Yes! During Spring Break of 2017 we set up Mystery at Magic School which was a huge success! During our 2016 Spring break & Summer camps for kids we incorporated a live escape room theme in all of our camps. We set up many different escape rooms for the kids during the camp weeks. Scroll to the bottom to see previous themes.
  7. What do the parents do while the kids are in the escape room?
    You have 3 options! You can just drop them off & then come back to pick them up when their time is done. OR you can sit in our waiting area that is next to the escape room. OR if you really just want to do the room too you can join in with them but please try to let the kids do lots of the work :)
  8. Where are Carolyn & Keri (the supervisors) while the kids are in the escape room?
    We will be in the next room watching & listening to everything through a video monitor. We can give hints through a walkie talkie & if necessary, can pop into the room at anytime.
  9. How many hints do we get?
    You can ask for as many hints as you like. We won't just give you the answer right away but we lead you in the right direction so you can easily get on to the next puzzle.
  10. Is the escape room scary?
    No! Not at all - this escape room is for kids! Some area's may be a little darker so the kids can use flashlights but nothing will pop out at you or be scary to look at.
  11. Do I have to be a piano student of Carolyn or Keri to participate?
    No! All kids from anywhere are welcome to sign up for our escape room. There is nothing music related about this room except for the fact that it's in Carolyn's piano studio. But we promise we won't make you practice the piano!
  12. What are my payment options?
    Payment by credit card, pay pal, e-transfer, cash or cheque is required within 48 hours of booking to confirm your escape room adventure.
  13. What time should my group arrive?
    Plan for your group to arrive approximately 10-15 min before your start time so we have time to run the rules of our escape room & give you your mission.
  14. Who are the supervisors?
Carolyn & Keri from Piano Stars. Here's what they look like:
