Enigma Quests: Escape the Room – SCHOOL OF WITCHCRAFT AND WIZARDRY


How long did you wait to receive your owl from Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry? A week? A month? I’m pretty sure mine was about 6 years….

We wait no more. It’s time to earn your clock and swish your wand, which is exactly what myself and 5 chums did last week at Enigma Quest’s ‘Escape the Room’ game.


Escape the Room games are spreading like wildfire within London and what started as ‘point and click’ online adventure games have got us all excited when translated to real life. It totally makes sense, feeling like you’ve become a contestant on The Crystal Maze (which is also coming to the city!) is literally an aspiration we have all harboured for a long time.

However Enigma Quests got us excited for another reason. A magical, mystical reason. Hogwarts. WE’RE GOING TO HOGWARTS!?


So off we trotted donning our finest cloaks, rounded spectacles and wand swishing actions.

Not known for out incredible room escaping abilities we hoped for a challenging yet manageable and exciting hour escape!


I won’t give too much away as I wouldn’t want to ruin the surprise. There were multiple rooms all of which included physical, mental and team building challenges to test you. The aim? To collect tokens proving you had completed all your magical classes (e.g. Defence Against the Dark Arts).


It was great fun! A fantastic mix of using your noggin’ and being silly, all with an awesome witchcraft and wizardry theme. There were props to play with too!

If you are looking for some group fun and a cracking bonding experience then look no further than Enigma Queats escape the room. With pre-game comfy sofas, fun board games and warming coffee Enigma will look after you and provide a great experience for family, workmates or just you best chums!
