I hadn’t planned on participating in the scavenger hunt for Harry Potter Day at Disneyland on November 4, 2012, but got talked into it. They had a plot focused on Yensids School of Socery and Necromancy, a wizarding school in America.
I was randomly sorted into Rickett House, and we met in the same location as Dashwood. The other two Houses, Willowdell and Grizcom, met at a different location. We had to find staff members who were dressed as Harry Potter characters and answer two questions from them. The correct answer on the first question earned us a clue to the solution of the problem. The second questions were hard, and the prize was a galleon. Locating the staff members themselves were difficult, and the clues were vague.
I think another purpose of the game was to have us explore the theme park. I also met some friends. We had to turn in our materials by 6:30 P.M., but I didn’t stay until 8:00 P.M. when they reveled the answers to the riddles.
