Interested in the world of magic, mystery, witches and wizards?! This is certainly the room for you.  The Forgotten Realm is based on the fact that the room has been cursed and it is your job to find the spell and lift the curse.

The real thing that makes this escape room stand out above others is its theme. Although certainly not a large escape room, when walking through the door you will be hit by the sheer attention to detail. All games stick strictly to the theme of magic and wizardry and there are some great surprises in the hour that follow. 

When carrying out the puzzles within the room it is easy to be distracted by the numerous items within the room, plus a little surprise from time to time so concentration is key! Many of the puzzles are riddle-based and, although some can be tricky, all are achievable. The finale of the room is different to anything you are likely to experience in any other room! 

Would I recommend this room?

In short, yes. The mix of a real solid theme, brilliantly decorated room, some use of technology, a handful of surprises, plus some challenging puzzles, mean I would certainly recommend it. 

Who would I recommend it to? 

Players that have played a few rooms before however aren’t hugely experienced

How many players would I recommend?

Around 4-5, taking into consideration the size of the room and number of puzzles inside

Suitable for Children?

Yes, however I would suggest being accompanied by adults as some of the puzzles are more complex.

Unfortunately The Forgotten Realm is now retired but you can support Hysteria Escape Rooms here.
