DIY Escape Room (Activity Kit)

DIY Escape Room (Activity Kit)

Are you looking for a fun activity to do at home?  This week, we will have FREE, DIY Escape Room kits available for families to pick up from the library and do at home.

Theme: Monster Mash

You were invited to a spooky party, but a mischievous ghost has locked the door! The party guests may know what to do. Can you gain their help and escape before midnight?

If you would like kit, you must register before Oct. 9.  Only register once per family.  The kit is recommended for ages 6-12, but it is created to have the whole family participate.


  • Many of the games will require a computer to load the countdown screen and enter passwords
  • If you cannot access a computer, the answers will be given for you to incorporate/hide as you see fit
  • Instructions are included with various ways of using the kit to create your escape room

Kits will be available for pick-up from Oct. 12-16.  If we cannot contact you to schedule a pick-up time in that time frame, your kit may be given to another patron.

Registration is open to Altoona and rural Polk County residents 4 weeks before the event. Registration will open to the general public 3 weeks before the event.
