What is an Escape Room?
An escape room is a series of puzzles and clues! A team works together to solve a riddle, and escape the room!
Escape rooms are one of our favorite activities, here! They allow for creative problem solving and ream work! We have even thrown a DIY escape room birthday party! In our house, digital escape rooms have helped us pass many days indoors.
I think the Harry Potter digital escape room was our all time favorite!
The Best Escape Room for Kids
That is, of course, until my son found Houdini’s Secret Room, from EscapeRoomGeeks! Apparently he had heard about it from a friend, and really wanted to play! His friend wouldn’t talk to him about it, because he didn’t want to spoil the surprise!
You are locked inside of Houdini’s Secret Room. The door slams shut behind you – BANG! Slowly, the walls start to close in. Can you escape in time?
With a fun story and beautiful art, my kids were immediately hooked! Since it’s on sale, this month, we jumped at the opportunity! Printed everything out on a little bit of card stock, and it immediately looked just as good as anything you would buy in a store!
This escape room is best for kids 9-13 years old! There is no strict age limit to these creative brain teasers, though. It’s always fun when kids outsmart the adults!
How Does This Printable Escape Room Work?
This was so much easier than some of the other escape rooms we have tried! All we needed was a color printer – because some puzzles require color! – and paper. We used cardstock so everything would be a little more solid.
Get a group of 2-6 players together! If you have too many people, you can split everyone into teams and make it a competition! Just print one copy of the game per group.
Download and Print, right away!
There is no waiting for a package in the mail! You receive the game as a PDF file and print it out anywhere you please! If you are a teacher, you can even laminate your copy to reuse with multiple classes!

To set the escape room up for your kids, all you will need scissors, glue, and a pencil. You can set the entire thing up in less than 30 minutes! The super easy Game Master’s guide makes it easy for parents or teachers! Just follow the simple instructions and be ready for fun!
