Amazing Scavenger Hunt Team Names: Harry Potter Edition

Watson Adventure Wizard School Team NamesTwenty years ago, the Boy Who Lived left his cupboard under the stairs and entered a magical world of witches and wizards, of friendship and adventure. And our world has never been the same.

Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, and the Wizarding World it has spawned since its release in 1997, has inspired countless tributes—including our own Wizard School scavenger hunts. They challenge hunters to answer fun, tricky questions about works of art with characters, creatures, or themes reminiscent of those in the Harry Potter books and films. They also challenge hunters to come up with the wittiest, weirdest team names they possibly can. Here are some of our favorites.
