Little sleuths and code-breakers can show off their detective skills at one of New Jersey's many family-friendly escape rooms. Getting "locked" inside a room with your kiddos to solve a murder mystery or foil a cyber attack adds a fun twist to family time and can be a cool alternative to other indoor fun zones, like arcades and trampoline parks.
Many rooms are suitable for children ages 8 or 10 and up, but some are geared toward older kids and teens. The rooms' themes vary from submarines and pirates to zombies and murder mysteries, so be sure to check the venue's website to find an age-appropriate experience for your child. Below, we’ve rounded up the best options for kids 8 and up.
