Professor Harry Halfsickle has been kidnapped by the dark witch Dharma Deceptrix! She cursed his port key and when he tried to use it he was ported into an enchanted painting and trapped inside. He has called on you, his best witch and wizard students, to help him. Use everything you have learned in wand skills, potion making and divination to find your way from his classroom to his private stores. There you must release the curse on his port key to bring him back to this plane of existence.

(Very minor spoilers, nothing in detail)
A room that kids will love, with a couple of enjoyable tactile puzzles and a magic wand to wield (although using it effectively can be a little frustrating). It's a little disappointing that a couple of different puzzle solutions rely on the same information and another pretty much hands you the answer, but these are blips in an otherwise very enjoyable and engaging room.

A nice enough game but a very bad "self-serve" clue system. Luckily we only needed one clue.

I'm generally not a fan of definitely-not-Harry-Potter rooms but this was one of the better ones. Some nice 'magical' effects which I'm sure younger players would love, alongside a number of chunkier, surprisingly taxing, puzzles for the more experienced.

Reviews by escape room review sites

The Wizard’s Apprentice is a game that needs no hesitation to book. With solid puzzles, an immersive atmosphere, and actual moments of magic, this is one magic school I was very happy to attend.
