More Info on the Hogwarts Hunt at the Wizarding World of Harry PotterFan Events
you may recall, Leaky and PotterCast will be
hosting the First
Annual Hogwarts Hunt this year at the Infinitus Harry Potter
convention. The Hogwarts
Hunt, a scavenger hunt, will take place in the Wizarding World of Harry
on Friday, July 16th. Those who participate in the Hogwarts Hunt
be looking for hidden details within the park. Points will be given for
both accuracy and how quickly you answer.
The first prize for the Hogwarts Hunt is free LeakyCon 2011 registration. Runners-up will receive Potter-related prizes as yet unnounced.
If you want to be involved in the Hogwarts Hunt you must participate in teams of two. If you don't have a partner you can find one at the Facebook event page for the Hogwarts Hunt. As a note, the team that wins will receive LeakyCon registration for both members.
Please be aware that participants will be able to receive their packet of clues/questions after the Final Battle musical if they want a head start. However, there will also be a meet-up point for you to receive your packet for those who don't want to leave the park, but you will be roughly 45 minutes behind. Each team will get one packet, which is given a unique number and will be associated with that team captain's cell phone number.
There will be communications with the players via text message, so if you intend to play the team captain must text (347) 762-4426 with their name, their teammate's name, and confirmation of their phone number. If you want to participate in the Hogwarts Hunt you must RSVP here, and text your name and the name of your teammate as well as your intention to play by Thursday, July 15th. (Standard text messaging rates for your carrier will apply.) You will receive a few bonus questions via text within the first 2 hours of the game, and if you are one of the first 10 teams to text back a correct answer to the bonus questions you will receive points.
In order to be eligible for any of the prizes you must hand in your completed answer page (the last page of your packet) at the last meet-up point.
The location of the meet-up points, and more details, will be announced shortly.
Winners will be announced during a live PotterCast on Saturday, July 17th at 12pm in the Java Room.
