Circus Medrano Comes to Africa!

Greetings from beautiful Uganda, the Pearl of Africa! 🇺🇬😊

We wanted to let you all know how much our students enjoyed solving the mystery of Medrano Circus. First, some background…

We are house parents at The Amazima School, a secondary boarding school in Jinja. We oversee a dorm of 18 Ugandan teenage boys, ranging in age from 16-20. All of these guys come from hard places and have experienced some level of trauma. Our role is to provide a safe, loving environment while they are at school and to cultivate partnership with their families and guardians to ensure a quality education as well as spiritual growth.

One of their favorite Saturday night activities is the Escape Room Geeks games. When they returned to the house from dinner last weekend to find it decorated and set up, they broke into big smiles and did, “Yay!! Escape room!” They were delighted!

This is our third Escape Room Geeks game night at our house. And it did not disappoint. We decorated the dorm with brightly colored balloons and played circus music. We played the the opening story from the app, then divided them into three teams of 6 and sent them into their rooms with the first challenge. Each team had an adult mentor with a phone and the apo, as the students themselves do not have phones at school.

At certain points when they completed a challenge, we rewarded the teams with circus themed treats such as peanuts and sodas. We even recruited two small children from a couple that lives on campus to act as our kidnap victims so when they solved the final challenge, they actually had to find the door with the correct address and open it. When they did, out came the two children, excitedly thanking them for rescuing them. Afterwards, when the teams completed the game, we gave them funnel cakes as a treat. They had never had them before and they really enjoyed them. They said this was the best one yet, but also for them the easiest as they are becoming pros at solving escape rooms. 🙂

Next term, we plan to do another. Unfortunately, we are unable to send many photos, due to a strict school policy of not taking and/or publishing photos of the students’ faces. We are attaching a few from various escape rooms that do not show their faces.

Thank you all for providing such excellent games. We have never been disappointed. And here at the school, we emphasize critical thinking skills and creative problem solving, so they are perfect vehicles for our students to exercise in a practical way the skills they are developing at the school.

Looking forward to the next escape room night!

Super fun and easy to set-up

My little miss was sad her sister was doing an escape room birthday party this past weekend, so I quickly downloaded the Wizards Workshop for her and I to do. Setup was so easy, I was ready to go in less than 15 minutes. I didn’t get too crazy with props, but she loved it anyway. And now big sis wants to do it again together!

Loving the new game!

The boys and I loved this video game style of the game. And again, I needed two copies of the game because we needed two hammers :). Now they’re running around the house yelling, “We’re going to beat you, Prince of Shadows :).” The puzzles were very fun. Sometimes they solve things faster than I do; I guess it’s because they play a lot more video games than me, so they have their own logic for solving puzzles, or maybe they’ve grown smarter than me :), which makes me feel proud. Nice work. Hoping for many more games because we love our game nights :).

Great memory!

We played the game with my girl and her two cousins, who are 11 and 12 years old. They loved that cutting, folding, and gluing were involved in solving the puzzles. We took our time playing the game because they said that everything needed to be precise and neatly made since everything is so beautiful. My daughter fell in love with Aria and now she wants to be like Aria when she grows up and bring light to people just like her.

Loved it!

Last game night, we played “Aria and the Secret of Light”, and wow, did it light up our evening! I’ve been on the hunt for something special to peel us away from screens and stumbled upon this printable escape room game. It was exactly what we needed.

My kiddo was totally engrossed, especially with the lighthouse puzzle. It’s not every day you see him so engaged, solving problems with a grin on his face. And when he finally outsmarted the Prince of Darkness, his cheer was so genuine it filled the room with warmth. For a moment, we weren’t just at home; we were heroes in Eldoria, bringing light back where it belonged.

It was heartwarming to see him so involved and happy, and honestly, I had a blast too. It’s amazing how a simple game turned into one of our most memorable nights.

Can’t wait to dive into our next adventure. If it’s anything like our time in Eldoria, we’re in for a treat!

Challenging

It was a lot of fun and we loved that we could solve puzzles and work together for this Easter family day.

It was okay

Many many glitches we entered the right code but the app said it was incorrect. It should also not rely on capital letters and commas

Response from Escape Room Geeks

We’re sorry to hear about the issues you’ve experienced. It seems these occurred with an older version of the app. We’ve since fixed every glitch in our latest update.

Circus Escape for 14 year olds

My daughter and 6 of her friends had a great time completing the escape room. Group was mostly 14 yo with a couple 13 yo. It took them about 75 minutes to complete and our only “complaint”/tip is to ignore the keys of the piano. Our group was full of band and choir kids who solved based on the piano, not the book and the piano was not accurate. Wouldn’t be an issue for the majority of kids, and after a confusing 10-15 minutes, we figured out why they weren’t getting it!

Also, the app can be very picky with how things are entered to be accepted. Not sure there’s a way to fix that, so we just made sure we were there in case something was rejected when it was correct.

I decorated an area to the theme to make it more realistic for the party. I also added a box with an actual lock for the music box code thinking it would add to the experience. It really threw the girls off and I wouldn’t do it that way again lol

Overall, for an at home escape room, it was great. Very fun watching the girls get excited when they figured something out and watching them piece things together. Company was very responsive to email questions before I purchased as well. Thanks!

Girls night to remember 🙂

So, the kid I nanny and I decided to have a little “girls’ night” and thought, “Why not try an escape room game?” We picked “Escape from Jigsaw Island”, and oh boy, did we have a blast! The puzzles were super fun and had just the right mix of being a bit challenging but totally doable. Her absolute favorite was this cool jewel puzzle. Watching her figure it out was just the best – she was all in, super focused and determined.

Honestly, it turned our night into something special and fun. I totally recommend this game if you’re looking for something exciting to do. It’s perfect for spicing up your evening plans or just having a memorable time with someone awesome.

Loved it!

Escape From the Jigsaw Puzzle” is a family game-changer! My kids, aged 8 and 10, were so engrossed in solving the brilliantly designed puzzles that they’re already begging for more. The art is a feast for the eyes, perfectly pitched for their age, making the game not just fun but visually splendid. And here’s the kicker for us parents: while the kids dove into this puzzle adventure, I enjoyed a blissful hour to myself. It’s like finding a secret spell for peace and quiet. Highly recommended for a fun-filled family activity that keeps the kids engaged and gives parents a well-deserved break!
