One of the most important things you need to know about the escape room you’re planning to visit is its age rating. This information is even more critical if there are minors in your escapee team. Escape room age rating doesn’t make the quest automatically forbidden for children and youth under the required age: in most cases, it just sets limitations for children entering without accompanying adults. If a group of children is joining the challenge with a grown-up who’s responsible for them, it’s considered appropriate, even if not universally recommended. The most common situation would be a mixed team of escapees entering: 2-4 minors and 4-6 adults, for example.

Independent commission is responsible for the final verdict, so there’s just no place for biased judgment.

Here are several factors that are considered essential when figuring out the rating:
