Harry Potter Escape Room

You can try your hand at a free online virtual Harry Potter Escape Room! Developed by the staff at Peters Township Public Library in Pennsylvania. Your wizard-obsessed kids can work through a series of questions to and explore how to properly cast spells. Their Hogwarts knowledge will come in handy as they explore the halls or visit the House common rooms. It is also designed for Muggle Families who consider themselves Wizards and want to try the escape room as a group. We did it last night – it took about 15 minutes, my 9 and 11 year old could do it by themselves.

The Harry Potter Escape Room is run through a Google doc – click here to get started on your Harry Potter themed adventure.
