It can be a difficult job to find new and exciting things to do to celebrate a kid’s birthday on the Sunshine Coast. How many birthday parties have your kids been to that are just the same as the last one? A party in the back yard or at a local park with the typical party games; pass the parcel, pin the tail on the donkey, musical statues, those same old games played generation after generation… sure they can be fun, but far from a new and truly unique birthday party idea.

If you’ve read this far, no doubt you are looking for some inspiration for your next child’s birthday party… well, we have the perfect idea for you… enter the Escape Room! The perfect birthday party idea that certainly hasn’t been done to death. For the younger kids, our Mad Scientist Escape Room in the Sunshine Plaza at Maroochydore is a game designed with younger kids in mind – suitable for kids as young as 7. Mad Scientist is a fast, fun and interactive escape room that will bring so much laughter, and excitement to your kid’s birthday. With 20 minutes on the clock, we have found that it is the perfect length game for the younger ones.

What about kids that are a little older? Our Area 51 room in Sunshine Plaza is the ultimate Alien experience for a truly out-of-this-world birthday party! Suitable for kids aged 11 and up, this room is a fantastic party idea to keep the kids entertained for an entire hour.

At our Noosa Red Lock Escape Room we have two more escape games – the Bank Heist Escape Room and the Vegas Hangover Room, both of which are 60 minute challenges. These rooms are also a great idea for older kid’s birthday parties. Throw in our retro arcade game and a stack of board games to play in the reception lounge, and your kids and their friends will have a memorable and exciting birthday party they will be talking about for years to come.

Parents and any additional guests are welcome to hang out in the reception lounge, while the kids play their escape experiences.
