Missing Hogwarts at Universal? Well How About a Harry Potter Themed Digital Escape Room?


Stuck at home and missing Hogwarts at the Universal Parks? Well Peters Township Public Library in McMurray, PA, have created at digital escape room themed to Harry Potter.

Told through narrative passages, and using written pieces, images and film clips, participants can work through the digital puzzles to escape. My kids are all about it! I am reminded of all the choose your own adventure games and books from when I was a kid. Do you remember the puzzle games like 7th Guest? That is the vibe it’s giving me.

With so many kids and parents stuck at home over the Coronavirus shut-downs, this might be a fun activity to take everyone’s mind off of everything else going on.

Here is the start of the adventure:

It is your first year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry and you could not be more excited. You were just sorted into your dream house and you had dinner with your new classmates. It is time to head back to the common room and get to know your roommates.

As you head into the cozy room, the house prefect announces that you have a fun team building activity to complete before you get too settled into your new digs. The house prefect tells you about a new muggle trend where they lock themselves in rooms and have to answer puzzles to get out – no magic at all!

Next thing you know, the room is completely dark and you hear a door slam.

If you are looking for something very unique and creative to do give this a try. I also want to give a shout-out to the library for putting this together! It’s a great idea and I appreciate the time and effort they put into it!

What do you think? Did you escape? Comment and let us know!
