If your family loves escape rooms, then here’s a chance for your kids to take the lead in cracking the code.
Noggin Builders, a hands-on science center in Northbrook, will open an escape room designed specifically for kids on Nov. 23. In Noggin Builders Kid Escape Room at Northbrook Court, players ages 5-10 can discover clues and solve puzzles while using a few science concepts along the way.
“Creative problem solving and critical thinking are keys to the future success of our children and to the creation of a better world,” says Amy Torf, founder of Noggin Builders Kid Escape Room and two Noggin Builders academic centers, in a press release. “Our escape room is a fun, safe way to guide children in that important direction.”
Noggin Builders Kid Escape Room’s first chapter is called “The Lab,” where players help Professor Quarkenstein find the ingredients for his formula. Players will have up to 30 minutes to solve the challenge and they will earn collectible pins on various accomplishments.
You can find Noggin Builders Kid Escape Room inside Northbrook Court (behind Northbrook Play on the second floor near AMC Theatres) and it will be open 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Saturdays and 11:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Sundays. Tickets cost $16 per person and kids must be accompanied by an adult. The experience should last about 45 minutes to an hour. Reserve your tickets online.
