Wizard’s Quest
Immerse yourself in the magical world of the Wizard’s School, where, starting in the Spells and Potions Room, you must solve cunning puzzles and fiendish riddles to gain access to the Professor’s Study where you are challenged to find the only spell which can save the world from the impending threat of Dark Forces.

Participants are “locked” in a room, and have only sixty minutes to solve a series of clues, puzzles and riddles to enable them to successfully complete their mission and ‘escape’ the room – and so win the game. We recommend that groups of under 16s should have at least one adult in their team.
