This is not a question of "Why can't users under 18 take The Loop Survey?" That has been asked elsewhere.
The first question in The Loop Survey is:

If you answer "I am under 18", the survey ends.
If you answer "I am at least 18 years old", the survey continues.
Question # 6 is:
- What is your age in years? (optional)
The first response listed is:
