I love to go to Escape Rooms. They are a ton of fun for me and my husband. If you have never been to an Escape Room, the best way to explain it is that is like solving a real-life puzzle in multiple parts. You are in a room with your teammates and you are given various clues to solve individual parts of the puzzle until you make it to the end. At the end, you get the code that is needed to escape the room. We have stopped a bomb from going off, a virus from being released, rescued a scientist and more in an Escape Room. Until recently though, we had never tried a Digital Escape Room.
What is a Digital Escape Room?
A Digital Escape Room is similar to the live version, where you are given clues that you have to solve to get to the end, but instead of using the items you have in a room, you are given clues on your computer screen. Digital Escape Rooms are more age appropriate for kids than regular Escape Rooms seem to be, and that makes it a perfect family activity for while we are cooped at home right now.
Digital Escape Rooms cover a variety of subjects including Harry Potter, History, fairy tales and more. Here are 12 Digital Escape Rooms that you can play with your family.
American Revolution Digital Escape Room
In the American Revolution Digital Escape Room, choose whether you are a Loyalist or a Patriot. Depending on what you choose, you will have different puzzles to solve. You can always go back and play the other side when you are done. Please note that you have to click on the individual pictures to get the information you need to solve the puzzles.
