About this experience

Every wizard must know the cornerstones of magic: spell casting, runecraft, and of course, potions. To perfect your knowledge of alchemy, join our candlelit Edinburgh School of Magic in an ancient cave hidden right behind St Giles cathedral and lost for centuries after the Great Edinburgh Fire.

During this interactive workshop, you will brew your own potion, guided by a Potion Master. However, it is not as easy as starting a fire under your cauldron:  you’ll face puzzles and challenges to test your mettle as a wizard. Vanquish the escape game, gather all the ingredients, and craft exciting potions to graduate from the School of Magic. 

Create monstrous 1m long slimes, discover colour-changing and smoking ingredients, and enjoy many other experiments. At the end of the activity, take away your own potion to continue the adventure at home!
