Post Harry Potter Lock In Fever, part 2

Filed under: Uncategorized — lanaquin @ 2:00 pm

…Continued from yesterday’s post about the first part of the night.

10:00 p.m. Gryffindor Finds the Golden Snitch

As a part of the House Cup, a golden snitch was hidden somewhere in the library, and the houses were given the task of finding it at some point in the night. Like a true game of Quidditch, seekers took up the challenge and scoured the library for the snitch. As the Horcrux Scavenger Hunt came to an end, it was finally found! A Gryffindor house member found the snitch nestled in between two audiobooks, and her housemates lifted her up in celebration! 50 points to Gryffindor!

11:00 p.m. Free Time

After the excitment of the Horcrux Hunt and the finding of the snitch, more free time was had. The forbidden forest was opened, and students were able to hang out in the forest or go into Hagrid’s Hut to make their own magical creatures. The other shops remained open. Here are some students making wands in Ollivander’s Wand Shop with Luna Lovegood.

12:00 a.m. O.W.L. Jeopardy

At midnight the next challenge of the House Cup began, O.W.L. Jeopardy featuring trivia about Harry Potter and the whole wizarding world. The houses battled eachother, putting their minds together to answer the tough and not-so-tough questions. Here’s one: The Order of the Knights Templar was the inspiration for this group in the Harry Potter books. Do you know the answer, er, I mean question?

3:00 a.m. Hufflepuff Wins the House Cup!

After the houses competed in the final House Cup challenge, Quidditch practice, the winner was determined! Hufflepuff won the House Cup with 370 points! Here we are celebrating, goooooooo Hufflepuff! More free time was to follow, as students watched the movies still rolling in the meeting room, played on the computers or even got some rest.

6:00 a.m. Breakfast at the Three Broomsticks

After gathering the students that were still awake and rousing those that had actually gotten some rest, a line formed at the Three Broomsticks as the night’s snacks were picked up and breakfast was served.


7:00 a.m. Departure

After a great night, the time finally came to go home. The students slowly filed out as we picked everything up. We gathered our things to leave ourselves, and look who we found! Mr. Chase almost made it to the very end…



As you can tell, we had an amazing night! If you were there, please leave a comment. Let us know how you enjoyed the night–tell us your favorite part, what you would change or just say hi. If you weren’t able to come, be sure to look out for lock ins in the future. We definitely plan to have more!

Until next time!
