Join us for an unforgettable game in an ancient underground Close, forgotten for centuries after the Great Edinburgh Fire. Grab dice, your wand, a drink and get ready to roleplay an exciting wizarding adventure. Solve puzzles, cast spells & much more

Grab your cape and your wand and become a wizard during a 2h roleplaying game! You will need to complete a mini escape game, solve puzzles, and talk to the teachers and students of Alnwick castle to find clues, fight or make friends with fantastical animals, and most importantly, get carried away by the magic in this roleplaying game hosted by bard and witch Miss McDernott.

Enjoy this exciting mix of escape game, Dungeons and Dragons and board games with all-you-can drink coffee and tea, with two scenarios to choose from:


After the defeat of the Dark Lord, you're contacted by the Magical Government to get a hold of a stone granting eternal life, apparently forgotten and lost in the castle's forest after the final battle. In this game, you will go deep within the forest, and sneak into a long forgotten cave...


You're well known as the biggest pranksters in the whole castle, and tonight you want to pull off your biggest surprise to date: turning each one of the castle’s common rooms into a swamp! But will you manage to avoid the teachers patrolling the corridors, and make it by sunrise?

Duration: 2h

Price: £200 per group of up to 7 people

Please note, young wizards (under 18) must be with an adult, and over 7 years old.

Location : 1 Barrie's Close, Edinburgh EH1 1RF

Tour company information


At Thunderdices we offer private tours and activities in Scotland with a storytelling twist. Discover the hidden myths and legends during tours off the beaten path: from the mysteries of Surgeon Hall which inspired Conan Doyle when he created Sherlock Holmes, to the places which inspired JK Rowling when she created Harry Potter. Be a wizard during hot chocolate potion workshops, alchemy workshops, or even wand-making workshops! Do you want to push this further and play D&D in a templar underground cave system or castle? We can set this up for you as part of our customised experiences.
