4 Fun Escape Room Alternatives to Do with the Family

If you do not feel like making an escape room in Terrassa or Barcelona, these 6 alternatives of escape rooms can be created in your own home!

1. Mini-escape room for groups

A typical escape room takes place in a large, enclosed room inside and lasts about an hour.You can make your own mini escape room, in your house or in the yard!

All you need is:

  • An area large enough to place the tracks
  • A small collection of accessories
  • Your own creativity!

Mini escape rooms keep the fun of solving puzzles in a small area and usually last between ten and fifteen minutes.

Feel free to make up a fun story to explain why your kids or friends are trying to open the box, like there's a pirate treasure inside.

2. Puzzle races

Puzzle races serve as excellent escape room alternatives for a larger group.

Separate your group into two or more teams and assign each team a similar series of puzzles.These puzzles can include puzzles, Rubik's cubes, or crossword puzzles.

Teams should work together to solve all puzzles as quickly as possible.The team that finishes first, wins!

Puzzle races can be very similar to mini escape rooms; it's like having two escape rooms running at the same time.These races encourage teamwork and create excitement through their competitive spirit.

3. Board games

Board games are a great way to spend a quiet afternoon with the family while having fun and creating great memories.

However, you don't need to stick with classic board games or card games like Monopoly or Go Fish.Many board games are also role-playing games, which challenge your group to use their imagination!

You can also find "escape room" board games, which include all the elements of a mini-escape room inside a handy box!

The advantage of a board game is that it does not require much prior preparation.These can be played comfortably seated around the kitchen table.

4. Treasure Hunts

You're never too old for a good old-fashioned treasure hunt!Treasure hunts are great for both staying at home and going out into the world.

For your group, create a list of items that you're likely to find in your chosen location.Make sure you print enough copies of the list for everyone!If you play at home, include items such as a roll of duct tape, a toothbrush or a pillowcase.

If you're playing in the park, maybe challenge your family to find a blue flower, a picnic table, or a perfectly round rock.

For greater variety, add clues that may have several correct answers, such as "finding something pink" or "finding something that isn't where it should be."

ROOM ESCAPE BARCELONA LARGE GROUPS

In this article we will talk about the main points to keep in mind when choosing an escape for large groups in Barcelona

Best escape room barcelona

The first thing to keep in mind is to see if the escape room we are looking for really adapts to what we need. In our case, we are dedicated exclusively to making adventures for children from 6 to 12 years old, in which the design, the adventure, the difficulty of the tests and the setting is thought of them.

In addition, they always have the help of a monitor who will guide and encourage them during the adventure. This figure is very important, since the concentration of children is not the same as that of an adult, so if they stay stranded in an area it is possible that they are easily distracted. In this way we manage to keep them always enjoying the event.

Finally, in the face of the design of the tests we have omitted certain parameters that are common in an escape room, for example the fact of having to perform mathematical calculations.

Groups in Barcelona

The design of most escape rooms has areas where it is not possible to continue solving the exhaust until some part of it is opened, or resolved in some way. This means that, in the case of few participants, the fun remains intact. But what if there is only something to solve and it is always solved by the same person? Therefore, in our escapes, it is important that there are always different elements to solve at the same time, and of different complexities. In this way, apart from getting everyone to participate, they begin to understand the importance of work, in which we are all important.

Escape room large groups

When many attendees participate in an escape room, there are always different types of profiles, just like at school.

On the one hand there are those participants who are more focused, who are very attentive to all the instructions and who quickly begin to solve the adventure without problems.

But what about the rest? In our escape room for children we include tests of all kinds, so that the complexity is very diverse and nobody feels discriminated against. The ultimate goal is to get everyone involved!

Escape room Vallés occidental

In the area of Vallés Occidental there are different types of escape offers, mainly in the large towns of the same, Sabadell and Terrassa. Our Terrassa rooms include two escape rooms for groups of children designed especially for them.

In the first, you can live an adventure set in Mexico! In our Mexican room something has happened with a very special Mariachi. Our second escape room is in the seafaring room, which includes a larger technological component, and we have to solve a problem related to the artificial intelligence of our facilities.

Room escape barcelona 8 people

In most escape rooms the number of participants is between 2 and 6 people. That is something usual since the different rooms through which the adventure passes are sometimes small in size. To avoid that we have a lot of space! In our escape room the minimum size of the area is 100 square meters, thus avoiding the burden and also allowing the number of participants to be up to 12 children, although it is recommended that the group is 8 people, as a guideline.

Star Wars Virtual Reality Experience

Who would not like to feel part of the Star Wars universe? In this virtual reality adventure specially designed for fans of the saga, you can live a unique experience. In this case, it is a “simple” complexity adventure, ideal for those new to the world of escape rooms and virtual reality. In addition, it is a trilogy, so that each component of the group will be able to experience a different part of it and they will all share a common goal. The plot of the story is very good, we leave you below a brushstroke:

The story of Vader Immortal is quite simple and exciting.You are the captain of a small ship whose ancestry attracts the attention of Darth Vader, conveniently located in a castle on the volcanic planet Mustafar.Vader needs your help until he stops, so you’ll get some Jedi/Sith time and training from the dark lord before you’re forced to confront him.

Because this is a Star Wars experience, you’ll interact with a droid, humanoid aliens, stormtroopers, and a few different environments with all the dust, rusty metal, and sparks one might have expected.The graphics and audio are spectacular!!!

So now you know, you and your team have the opportunity to be the hero in an adventure that lives within the same world of history as Return of the Jedi or The Phantom Menace.Do you dare with adventure? Click here to check availability of Star Wars virtual reality in Barcelona and Terrassa.
