Want to have a little fun while visiting The Wizarding World of Harry Potter? Then have fun with this Scavenger Hunt just for the Harry Potter fans! The “hunt” will lead you on a magical adventure throughout The Wizarding World of Harry Potter located in both Universal Studios Florida and Universal’s Islands of Adventure theme parks.

Download and print out this page listed HERE and bring it with you to Universal Orlando Resort.HP Scavenger Hunt

 

Just a few notes from Universal Orlando about the “hunt!”

  • All eight clues highlight different experiences from A Celebration of Harry Potter.
  • Make your way to each location and share your photos with #HPCelebration.
  • Be sure to include yourself and/or your group in the photos.
  • Remember, using the Floo Network to get from place to place is cheating.

Universal Orlando is also planning on live streaming parts of the event, so if you’re like me and can’t make it you can still be a part of the events!
