The myth of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table remains one of the most beloved and enigmatic topics of the Western literature and history. To this day scholars are still arguing over the issue of whether or not the legendary warrior king really existed. As for his magical friend and adviser Merlin, matters are even more cryptic: researchers agree that the famous wizard was in fact an invention of a medieval chronicler who blended several historical figures with fragments of his own imagination. Be as it may, Arthur and Merlin have been immensely popular among historical fantasy writers and filmmakers and never failed to fascinate many generations of readers and viewers. It is only fitting that the interactive entertainment of the 21st century pays homage to these great heroes: enter Merlin’s Wizarding Academy, a Florida escape room courtesy Boxroom escape center.
