A good room, shame its closing. Theming in one area is a little off, it felt a bit like a kids play room. Some good magic moments though, in keeping with the theme.

Hell yeah! Our favourite at Xscape Now, this room has loads to offer. It seems endless, and there was always multiple puzzles that people could get on with. It took 5 of us 56 mins to complete, and once you gain entry to the last portion it really ups the immersiveness.  The set decoration was cool and the tasks mostly kept in theme. Out of the handful of magic-themed rooms weโ€™ve completed, this would be the best. Top 10 after 40 odd rooms so far.

Had a fantastic time doing this. Plenty to do and was fairly non-linear so a larger group would definitely be kept busy. It was challenging for a  group of 3. Some puzzles we hadnโ€™t seen before, which is rare after 90+ games! 

Did this straight after their Sweeney Todd room which weโ€™d loved and this was even better
