  • My sister booked us the prophecy quest room as a birthday gift. Being a huge potter fan we decided to go to the potion making beforehand. The decor is amazing and lovely touch to get to wear a cloak.....  more »
  • What a magical escape room! We visited as part of a bridal shower weekend, and cannot praise our experience enough. It's worth being aware that there are some audio recordings played during the...  more »

  • Had a blast here with three other friends on a drop-in night. The Magic Potion Tavern was awesome. Such a unique concept and everyone had a blast creating their own drinks while I sipped on a pint and played the Viking board game with a buddy as we waited for our escape room to begin. It was challenging, but fun, and our host was great (sorry, can’t remember her name but dark-haired female that had a great sense of humor) and didn’t help out too much unless we really worked ourselves into a bind. Was great that we could bring our drinks in with us, as well, and the the cloaks were a cool touch. Wouldn’t hesitate to visit again. Do it, you’ll have a great time!
  • Great day out at this place. Escape room are so much fun. First time doing this is of thing and would love to go back. Cocktail is so much fun to make and the butterbeer was very tasty 😋 too. Highly recommended and friendly staff
  • We booked a midweek tour so it was quiet (book in advance for weekend, very busy!) Got to book and complete both escape rooms. The staff are great and keep in character. We did enjoy the prophies quest more as it was more challenging but overall a good experience.
  • Great Escape Room - intricate and fun. Different to some we've done in that a member of staff is in there with you, but that didn't interfere with the feel of it - he was great at just blending into the background. No Harry Potter knowledge needed, but you'll enjoy the immersion in the world more if you know the books/films. Great bar with board games out front. We made our own potions (cocktails) which was fun.
  • Went here tonight with a few friends and it was great fun. Well thought out puzzles and great enthusiasm from the staff. Really enjoyed this.
