Australian Ministry of Magic: An Escape Room – For Adults

Thu 7 July at 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Celebrate 25 years of Harry Potter with a magic-themed escape room activity held at Croagh Patrick College.

About this event
This one’s for the grown-ups! Enjoy a spooky night-time experience with wine and nibbles.

The magical world is uneasy. There are reports that Voldemort’s power is once again growing, and his army is gaining in strength and numbers.

Time is running out for the Australian Ministry for Magic to locate magical artefact and missing spell. When the spell is cast upon the artefact it will have the power to protect the whole wizarding world from the dark magic which threatens it.

Many years ago the artefact and spell were hidden at Orange’s school for magic, Llanello’s Australian Witching and Wizarding School (LAWWS). To prevent Voldemort’s army from stealing them away, they were shrouded in deep layers of protection and diversion. However these protections are so strong that no magical being – evil or good – can find the artefact and spell. It is a task only a team of Muggles can complete!

The Ministry needs you to decode the spell clues, uncover the artefact and deliver both to the Ministry’s representatives before the hour is up. Do you have what it takes to navigate a range of puzzles, games and activities to find the clues that solve this mystery? Are you the right Muggle for this dangerous job?

Gather 3 or 4 of your most trustworthy Muggle companions and sign up for Australian Ministry of Magic: An Escape Room.

This event is designed for adults 18 years and over, as alcohol will be served.
