You don't have to wear your Hogwarts robes to The Wizard School Scavenger Hunt, though you're welcome to. This scavenger hunt, presented by Watson Adventures, takes place all over the Getty Center as participants go in search of “a powerful sorceress, a Snape-like potions master, flying owls and dragons, Hagrid-like giants, centaurs and unicorns like those you'd see in the Forbidden Forest, strange mermaids and sharks that seem straight out of the Triwizard Tournament, fierce knights in armor, and cloaked and masked figures as scary as any Death Eater or Dementor.” The hunt, comprised of “tricky, amusing questions,” is designed for teams of kids (age 10 and up) and adults, and a “cheat sheet” will be provided to those who don't speak J.K. Rowling-ese.
