Planning a Kids Birthday Party at an Escape Room in San Antonio

Plan a Memorable Kids Birthday Party in San Antonio in 6 Easy Steps

There’s nothing more fun than a kids birthday party. It’s a celebration for the most special little person in your life, so of course you want to make it an event to remember. 

One of the best kid birthday party ideas in San Antonio is visiting an escape room. It’s an experience that you don’t get to have every day, which makes it memorable right from the start. The birthday boy or girl and a group of friends can have an adventure that goes well beyond the normal playdate. 

Plus, planning an escape room birthday party is super easy! 

Get a Guest Headcount

Having a San Antonio escape room party requires an accurate headcount. Only so many players can be in an escape room at once, so the size of the guest list will dictate how many rooms you need to reserve. At Extreme Escape our escape rooms accommodate up to 10 players and there are four rooms at each location. A guest list with up to 40 kids is no problem!

*Don’t forget to count the adult chaperone! An adult needs to accompany players under 15 years old.

Pick a Time and Date

Locking in a date is very important for an escape room birthday party in San Antonio. Unlike some other venues, an escape room location will still be open to other people who can make their own reservations in advance (see below). It’s a good idea to call ahead and ask the escape room crew what days and times are the most busy. If your schedule is flexible you may want to plan the birthday party when there’s less activity. 

Choose an Escape Room

Now comes the really fun part - picking an escape room!  Needless to say, this should be the birthday girl or boy’s first present. Let them pick the escape room adventure they like the best. All of our escape rooms are designed for ages 12 and up, but there are a few that are great options for kids as young as 8 years old. 

For younger players, we suggest Mutiny or Trapped Below at the Colonnade location and Encounter or The Lost Tomb at the Stone Oak location.

Take Advantage of Group Rates and Specials

We have a little gift for the awesome parents that are giving their kids an epic escape room birthday party. There’s almost always some sort of special discount rate available at Extreme Escape on any given week like our Heroes Play Free Mondays. Check out our Facebook page and Instagram account before booking to look for discount codes.

Reserve Escape Rooms Well in Advance

Once you have your date and time set, go ahead and reserve your escape rooms before someone else does. Here’s how escape rooms work. A room will remain open for reservations until all 10 spots are reserved. If you don’t reserve all 10 spots you could end up playing with another group. And if you don’t reserve in advance there may not be enough spots for the escape room you want at a particular time. The sooner you reserve the better.

Line Up the Refreshments

At Extreme Escape we supply plenty of entertainment for a kids birthday party in San Antonio, TX. We are also one of the only escape room venues to provide a complimentary beverage for every player. But escape rooms aren’t equipped with kitchens. You’ll have to work with outside vendors to purchase a cake and other food for the party.

Our team is more than happy to work with you or a catering company so the food delivery and set up goes smoothly. Just give us a call in advance to make arrangements.
