All games at The Other Tales escape room center are family friendly. They are not scary or inappropriate. We had players anywhere from 7 to 97 years old. One thing to note for our older players, is that unfortunately there is no elevator and the escape room center is on the second floor.
Despite the stories in our escape rooms being family friendly, the puzzle solving can be a bit challenging. The games were designed with adults and teens in mind. We recommend the players to be 13 years old and older to play. Younger kids can still participate and enjoy searching for clues or helping with easier puzzles when the play with older kids or adults.
We do offer easier versions of some of our games. We recommend this option for teams composed mainly of 10 to 12 year olds. All kids 15 years old and under must be accompanied by an adult.
