Me and my friends had booked the Harry Potter 2 room, and while the room was good, the experience we had with the employee was not.

She was clearly drunk, we could tell from the slurring of her speech and the way she was stumbling while walking. Not only was she rude to the people already in the room (banging her hand on the counter because she was frustrated at the young boy who was asking questions), she also repeatedly kept forgetting we were there and forgetting to speak to us in English. Once we finally got into the room, 25 minutes late due to her inability to prepare the room, with little to no instructions, it was fine for a while. Until she came bursting into the room, taking props from us in order to do the task herself, without us having asked for help. She suddenly felt the need to tell us what to do, directing us in the task - again, we had not asked for help, and we kindly let her know that we didn't need her help.

I don't know the reason why she was drunk, but the experience ensured that we will not be spending any more money on your escape rooms in the future due to lack of professionalism. Staff should not treat their paying customers like this, they should not be drunk at work (she very obviously had a drinkmix behind the counter).

The entire thing made me very sad, as I was excited to experience a Harry Potter escape room, only to have the experience ruined by staff.

A horrible expierence. We are pretty sure the game master was drunk throughout the whole visit, she took about 30 min before we could even enter the escape room cause she was staggering around and forgetting we were there. We had to constantly remind her that we spoke english, and not hungarian - so it genuinly seemed like she forgot who we were everytime she came back to where we were waiting. Once we finally were able to start the escape room, we were 25 min late into the game due to her not being able to do the room ready (and not let us know what was going on). The room itself was really fun, but midgame the gamemaster came suddenly in the room and started SOLVING our game to speed up things??!? And then she started tidying up while we still had 30 min left inside the room and we were not even finished. We were extremely upset about the whole situation, and due to this game master we will probably never consider going to The Magic Escape rooms ever again. Please, straighten your staff - this behaviour is not okay.

We have previously visited many great escape rooms, and were expecting the same quality due to the description on the website. Although technically this room qualifies as newest gen (aka it didn't have any locks, only magnetic mechanisms), we were quite disappointed. The interior of the room did not match up to the expectations of a modern experience. There was little to no exploration phase. The puzzles were quite linear, and two puzzle corresponded to the same equipment. Overall the puzzles lacked creativity. There was a major game design flaw that directed you to skip FIVE puzzles. It felt like the designers didn't expect Star Wars fans with knowledge about the franchise to enter this escape room.

To the owners: we would be more than happy to go into more detail and constructive criticism in a form of an e-mail if you are open to it.

Kind regards,
A group of escape room enthusiasts

We booked the room but actuallíy the other room was on another address so it took us half an hour to get to the right address. Then they were kind as they tried to solve the situation and not lose the money so let us in half an hour late (we called them before and told our problem). Then they let us in and let us work for a white than they started to tell us the clues without asking as they needed the room empty for the next clients. This way it was boring and useless. I ll never go there again. I wanted to buy some prize tickets for m students there but I did in another place. They dod not have a normal toilet, no water to offer. It wa skinda ancient. Smelly and old fashioned. So choose rooms that are best rated, they are nice and well organized.

The employees were ok, but their English wasn’t great. There are some really badly translated English clues in the room, that were impossible to understand. Overall, the room had no clear storyline and overall flow of the puzzles, and we had to just randomly move around some objects in the hopes it would work. The walls of the room look nice, but there could be more actual HP related props. In our group of 4, everyone has done 5+ (different) escape rooms, and we all thought this one was the worst we tried. Overall, I wouldn’t recommend this room and this company. It’s overpriced for the experience you get.

My husband and I did the Harry Potter themed room today and really enjoyed it! It wasn't too difficult with just two people. The employee's English wasn't great,so she had someone come translate for us. We all made it work and had a great time!

Whilst on holiday with my wife we tried the Magic School. This was an excellent room with multiple sections. The puzzles were fun and challenging but we managed to escape with some time to spare. It’s nice not having any locks to solve and everything works using magnets. Would highly recommend - some parts of the room looked a little old but for the price I can’t complain!
