A "Harry Potter" escape room now exists, but you can't apparate your way out of this one

Escape rooms provide puzzles and delightful entertainment for adventurous groups of friends. And this Harry Potter-themed escape room is the perfect mix of fun and fantasy for an unforgettable night out. In order to triumph over the task at hand, you’ll need the bravery of a Gryffindor, the cunningness of a Slytherin, the intelligence of a Ravenclaw, and the fun-loving nature of a Hufflepuff. In short, you’ll need your whole Hogwarts crew to be involved.

Escape Room Novi is a themed escape room based in Michigan. As of right now, the business offers a jungle theme, a diner theme, a pirate theme, and an asylum theme.

And starting this August, they’ll be offering a Harry Potter theme.

The room will appropriately be called the “School of Magic.”

Though the promotional picture seems to encourage use of magic, this is definitely a muggle-friendly business. Of course, you’re more than welcome to dress up in all your Harry Potter gear and bring your special wand from your local Ollivander’s. But the puzzles and skills you’ll need to succeed in this escape room won’t require any special magic.

The business sets up a series of puzzles and clues. Then you have a set time to figure it all out. In this case, you’ll get an hour to solve it all.

And, though they haven’t yet explicitly stated it, you likely won’t be allowed to use your Time-Turner to get extra time.

As of now, you’ll have to travel to Michigan to take part in these Harry Potter-style games. But hopefully since escape rooms themselves can be found nationwide, other businesses will be inspired to create similar experiences. So we all won’t have to ride too far on our broomsticks in order to enjoy a unique and magical experience.
