What to expect at Department of Magic

Wanna get up to no good? We solemnly swear this is the spot for you

Move over Hogwarts, this is the new home to witchcraft and wizardry. Get ready to cast spells, mix potions and go head-to-head with the Dark Lord himself. There are a couple of spellbinding experiences to pick from:

The Magical Escape Room is a must, so long as you’re feeling brave enough to take on the dark arts. Your team (2-6 people) will be the last hope for the magical world – no pressure. You’ll be tasked with finding the prophecies the Dark Lord has hidden. Oh, and you’ve only got 50 minutes until he arrives.

Fancy something more chilled? The Magical Bubbler Cocktail experience might be more up your (Diagon) alley. Choose between Alcomystery, the Vial of Venom and the Sieran’s Wail for a real taste of the magic. We hope you paid attention in potions class.
