We’ve all been waiting for our Hogwarts’ acceptance letters since we were 11. We’ve been waiting to don our robes, get ourselves a new wand, and get the latest Nimbus (oops, first years aren’t allowed to bring brooms!); but it’s not all glitz and glamour. You gotta be quick to think on your feet and be able to face challenges in order to pass the School of Wizardry!
But wait… why am I talking as if we’ve been in the School of Wizardry? Am I secretly a witch? I wish! No, we just got to try the School of Wizardry in Escape Plan Manila! It’s a cool new escape game company with rooms such as The Force Strikes Back, a Star Wars-inspired escape room; The Funhouse, a fun carnival-inspired room; and of course, The School of Wizardry, a Harry Potter-inspired room.
The Potterhead in me was jumping up and down for joy! I’ve tried other Harry Potter-inspired escape games before, but this is by far the best one! I’m not kidding! The room itself is very well-designed. The minute you step into the room, you’ll feel like you apparated into the Gryffindor common room – complete with a cozy fireplace and a wizard’s chess set!
What I like best about Escape Plan is that the game flow and the puzzles are seamlessly integrated to create the best game experience possible! That’s not just in the School of Wizardry, either, but in all of their rooms. I won’t spoil any puzzles for you; you gotta experience it yourself!
You don’t have to be a huge Potterhead like me to enjoy this room, either. This is for anybody who’s up for a challenge, really! And if this isn’t your cup of tea, you can also opt to go on an adventure with a Jedi Master or a Padawan. Meanwhile, I’ll be waiting for an owl to drop my letter!
