Free admission for kids at Escape Live this summer!

Parents in the West Midlands can help their kids Escape the boredom this summer with free admission to one of the most popular experiences in the region.

Escape Live, the exciting escape experience with venues in Birmingham, Coventry and Stratford, is offering free games to youngsters between the age of 8 and 16 when in a party of three or more.

The offer will last on bookings up to and including games played before September 3 as parents across the region look for ways to avoid the school summer holiday dragging for their children.

Escape Live sets groups of between two and six players a challenge to get out of a themed escape experience room within an hour. They must solve a series of clues in order to be successful in their mission.

The venue in Birmingham, which includes Room 13, The Time Machine, Dr Wilson’s Office and The Lab experiences, is one of the most popular attractions in the area according to TripAdvisor and is rated as the number one thing to do in the region by the site.

John Dalziel, one of the founders and owners of Escape Live, said the free offer was a chance for kids to try something new during the school holidays.

He said:

I can remember what the six-week summer holiday was like. You’d start off all excited that you’ve got loads of time off school but then halfway through you would be driving your parents crazy!
That’s why we thought this would be a great free offer to launch just before the biggest school holiday of the year and it gives parents and their children something a bit different to do.
Our experiences are challenging, exciting and loads of fun and will be a great way to Escape the boredom – especially if the weather turns.
But even when the sun is shining, it’s a great way to get out of the house, play one of our games and then explore this area of Birmingham afterwards.

Escape Live venues in Stratford and Coventry are also running the same offer.

John added:

Stratford is proving to be very popular since we opened with our Chalice of Champions game, which is based on magic, mystery and wizards so is perfect for Harry Potter fans.
Coventry, too, goes from strength to strength and we believe this will be hugely popular there too.

Escape experiences start at £15pp and for more information on purchasing or booking your group, including one free space for an 8 to 16-year-old go to
