This room was very fun and creative. I apparently am a fan of the the wizard-genre especially after this room. Some puzzles were a little tricky for us. There was certainly a lot of "Ah-hah!" moments in this room for us. I accidentally figured out the the last lock and skipped about 3 lock pads. We wanted to get the full experience so we backtracked to figure out the puzzles we missed.

Read Vampire Lair for challenges and concerns.

Overall, this room was very fun and I highly recommend this one for all ages.  The mechanics and puzzles were clever. It was a joy to do it especially with the little surprise. I loved speaking into a cauldron to get hints! The room might be difficult for newbie escape artists. Veteran escape artists would have a kick doing this one.
