Prophecies Quest

The wizarding world is in terrible danger - and only you can save it from certain destruction!

Gather your friends - and your wits - and stand together to foil The Dark Lord's evil plans.


In this enchanting escape room,

your task is to collect The Prophecies, powerful objects The Dark Lord has cunningly hidden, and use them to defeat him.

There is still time, but it's quickly running out! 

Will you stand for good and rise to the challenge?


Dark Lord Resurrection

The Dark Lord slumbers… He waits impatiently - longing to be restored to his former power to wreak havoc on the magical world!

You hear his distant voice calling you to the dark side... Tempting you to enter The Mausoleum of the Dead, an innovative escape room where you're tasked with uttering eldritch incantations, retrieving hidden artefacts, and brewing a mysterious potion to free him from death itself. 

Will you answer The Dark Lord's call?
