For Marvellous Magic School there are 2 lighting modes, mode 1 is atmospheric lighting, mode 2 is brighter lighting, if you require the brighter mode just ask your Gamemaster before the experience.

We are aware that there are many specific requirements that our customers may need and we always do our best to accommodate, so if you have any questions regarding how appropriate any of our rooms would be for you please reach out to us at: dontpanic@thepanicroom.net
