Reviews by escape room review sites

A beautiful game with a great sense of exploration, generally enjoyable puzzles and fun set pieces. A maintenance issue, a confusing puzzle and a disappointing cluing system detracted from what was otherwise a really fun game but I'd still recommend playing.

If you’re still waiting for your letter to Hogwarts to arrive in the post (dw, the owl’s just been a little delayed I’m sure it’s on it’s way), then playing Wizarding School at Breakin’ is the next best thing. It’s a three-room escape room experience where each room represents a different area of the wizarding school and takes you on a narrative journey not too dissimilar from The Chamber of Secrets.

Having asked around for the best Harry Potter room in the UK   the best HP room found on our itinerary the best HP room on our itinerary that could take in 6 people, I brought the gang to this London venue right before we left town.

With these constraints piling up, it won't come as surprise that this room probably was our least favorite of the whole trip. Take it with a grain of salt, though.
