A Virtual Harry Potter-Themed Escape Room Now Exists, And All Muggles Can Take Part

By Jack Saddler

Just as the Chosen One escaped the Chamber of Secrets, it’s time for you to break out.

Of course, the normal lockdown rules still apply. But you can take part in the all-new virtual Harry Potter escape room. The first hurdle: escaping your usual virtual confinement routine of Netflix, Netflix and Netflix again. And whatever you do, try not to end up in Azkaban. We’ve heard that’s a tough one to get out of. Sirius Black might not even be able to help you.

This escape room comes all the way from Pennsylvania, created by Sydney Krawiec, a librarian from Peters Township Public Library. The Hogwarts Digital Escape Room lets you and your pals traipse around the grounds of the School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.

You will begin as a first-year student. And, just as if Hagrid had delivered you your letter, you’ll be swept into the world of dark arts and magic. The sorting hat will assign you to a house before you’re tasked with a team-building activity to get you going. *not Slytherin, not Slytherin* 🤞


Players can take part individually or as a team, and the experience lasts about 15 minutes. Afterwards, mere muggles will be able to take on he-who-shall-not-be-named… maybe.

Take part in The Hogwarts Digital Escape Room right here. Wands at the ready!
