Calling all wizards! Almost Fumbledoor needs your help at Airy Botter & The Sorcery School Headmaster’s Office Escape Room, to save the children. Now whilst this may sound like it resembles the ‘he who shall not be mentioned’ franchise, it is nothing of the sort: it is much better.
Richard the Escape Room extraordinaire is no stranger to the Adelaide Fringe and if you were a fan of his Tiki themed room last year, then this one is even better. With magic all over the room there is plenty to work on and as always your communication skills will be a valuable asset if you use them correctly.
What is most enjoyable about this experience is the opportunity to work with complete strangers in a pretty intense environment. If working with friends is more your style there is also the opportunity to book out a session with a group of 8 people. Now whilst I know that British wizard has all the young children loving him, Almost Fumbledoor states that rescuing the school is only for mature wizards so please take note that the Escape room is only for Witches and Wizards aged 15+
Whilst I can’t give anything away, I will say that the puzzles are very clever and the theme is done so well. Richard is definitely a very clever man and a very professional and engaging host. Definitely worth experiencing whether it be your first or tenth time participating in an escape room.
