Holidaying, spending the weekend or just passing through Rouen, the Tourist Office has 10 ideas for activities you and your teens can enjoy together in Rouen. Not very enthusiastic, not very motivated or not at all up for a family activity? Here are some great ideas to delight them!

Better than Star Wars

If the force is in you, go over to the dark side for a session at the Laser Game Evolution! Individually or in teams, challenge yourself in three multi-level mazes, with an ultra-precise, ultra-light laser pistol in hand. The aim? Disable as many opponents as possible. It’s a fun time for grown-ups and teenagers alike. And to catch your breath between games, take advantage of simulators to race on GT or F1 circuits simultaneously.

Discover the new EVA (E-sport Virtual Arena) concept in Mont-Saint-Aignan. Equipped with a VR headset, a computer in a backpack and a connected rifle, you move freely around an arena of up to 500 m²! Ever dreamed of getting into your favorite game? Eva turns that dream into reality.

For gamers

What if you were immersed right inside the game? The‘escape game doesn’t require physical exertion but rather the activation of your neurons.

In Rouen you’ll find a multitude of game rooms with exciting themes: more history-oriented at Escape 423 – Les Gardiens du Temps, inspired by cinema and TV series at Team Break Rouen and based on great Rouen figures at LU6D. A new option to spice up the game: the virtual reality escape game! This is what Les Explorateurs are offering,

If you were to experience an escape game in the heart of a historic monument during the Second World War. Spend a timeless moment with your teenagers at the Donjon de Rouen, pioneer of historical escape games. Ingenuity and nerve will be required to recover strategic documents in the heart of the city’s best-protected German bunker.
