Essentially, the Enigma Quests School of Witchcraft and Wizardry is an Escape Room, based around the theme of Harry Potter
What is an Escape Room?
An escape room is a popular entertainment activity, where small teams of people, 3-5 roughly, are up against the time, in order to complete a mission to escape a room they are trapped in. Puzzles, challenges and clues are to be solved co-operatively to complete the mission successfully.
I absolutely love Harry Potter (if you didn’t already know) and was absolutely thrilled to participate in this challenge with my 5 friends.
The location of Enigma Quests was highly accessible, being very close to Liverpool Street Station in Central London. As soon as we entered the site, I could feel my nerves and anticipation creep up.
The team at Enigma Quests were very welcoming and since I’m an early bird, we arrived early and chilled in the lounge – where we played multiple board games and helped ourselves to the refreshments available.
Once we entered the escape room (after our prep) we all desperately ran around attempting to find clues. At first we were all so confused but managed to figure our way around. The escape room was very challenging and required exceptional team effort. The challenge itself was absolutely thrilling and we all had an AMAZING time, especially as our first escape room experience.
I am also very proud to say our team managed to escape the room within the 60 minutes we had. We achieved an outstanding result, with 2 minutes remaining.
This escape room was well worth the £20 I paid for it. And thanks to Enigma Quests, I would happily participate in another escape room.
Hm, for my birthday in April, I’m possibly thinking about going to the ‘Snatch: A Million Pound Heist’ escape room by Enigma Quest, which is opening soon.
Suggestion for improvement
My time with Enigma Quests was brilliant and the only suggestion I can think of is an item of remembrance e.g. a certificate of achievement, to be given which would commemorate the achievement of teams. Or possibly a Hogwarts Acceptance Letter?
