Angelina Jolie organized an immersive escape-room birthday party for Shiloh

As we discussed this week, Brad Pitt skipped his daughter Shiloh’s 13th birthday. He was in Cannes last week, and he’s in Venice this week with his artist friends. Angelina has been living full-time in LA for a couple of years now – minus a stay in London to work on Maleficent – and she and the kids really have put down some roots there. Anyway, I tend to think Shiloh has always taken after Angelina in her sort of fearlessness and eagerness for adventure. Shiloh seems like an extremely well-adjusted kid given the level of fame of her parents and the traveling-circus bubble of the Jolie-Pitt family’s life. Shiloh has always been a tomboy, eager to skateboard and play soccer and do whatever her brothers are doing. And so Angelina organized a special treat for Shiloh’s birthday: an hours-long adventure at The Basement LA.

Angelina Jolie knows how to host a party! The actress threw an epic bash in Los Angeles on Monday, to celebrate daughter Shiloh Jolie-Pitt’s 13th birthday.

The party went down at The Basement LA, where guests got to explore four different escape rooms, watch magicians perform and grub out on custom birthday cakes. Shiloh’s dad, Brad Pitt, was not in attendance, but all five of her siblings — Maddox, 17, Pax, 15, Zahara, 14, and 10-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox — were there, along with a group of friends, to help celebrate the birthday girl.

An eyewitness told ET that everyone was in good spirits, and “spent hours” finding their way out of all the escape rooms.

I looked at The Basement’s site – it’s an immersive experience with live actors in which you have to figure out ways to “escape” various physical and intellectual traps. I was trying to think back to what my ideal birthday party would have been like at 13 – probably something involving a good cake and Pearl Jam? But obviously, Shiloh is different. Those escape rooms would probably give me, a grown-ass adult, nightmares for months. But I bet Shiloh LOVED it.
