How Does this Harry Potter Escape Room Work?

This Harry Potter online virtual escape room is set up like this…

The Harry Potter Virtual Escape Room is set up in Google Docs through a series of questions. All you have to do is show up and follow the directions.

  • Starting out, you’re told that this is your first year at Hogwarts.
  • With your house already chosen, you’re told that this is going to be a team building activity. 
  • During this activity, you will be watching clips from Harry Potter movies, answering questions from the clips, heading into Gringotts where you’ll have to figure out the exchange rate between sickles and galleons, figure out how to do different spells and much, much more…

Figure Out the Harry Potter Virtual Escape Room Puzzles

At first, I completed the escape room on my own so I could get a sense of what it was like.

It was pretty funny looking at things like a cell phone and keypad as a wizard seeing these strange devices for the first time.

Then, I asked my youngest son if he’d like to come and do it with me.

Of course he said yes!

I mean, what kid wouldn’t be excited for a Harry Potter escape room!

Doing the virtual escape room with someone else was much more fun because we were able to talk about what it might look like if we were actually there and help each other out when converting the sickles and galleons. 

I love how it sparked his imagination and made him really think about what it would be like to visit the wizarding world.
