As originally rumoured on Brick Fanatics, the LEGO Group is holding a very cool competition to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the LEGO Harry Potter theme, involving a treasure hunt across three UK cities to find the hidden LEGO Flying Ford Anglia from Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets.
The in-person hunt will take place in London, Edinburgh and Cardiff on November 6 and 7, and will begin at one of three giant golden LEGO minifigure statues hidden in each city. You’ll then need to use your smartphone, your wits and maybe just a little sprinkling of magic (but no cheating!) to discover the secret location of the Ford Anglia.
If you can’t make it to any of the in-person hunts, though, don’t worry: you can also participate remotely by heading to LEGO.com. More details on how to take part online will follow in due course, but whether you’re there in the flesh or on the hunt from afar, you’ll have the same chance to win probably the best LEGO Harry Potter prize haul of all time.
That includes not only tickets to the Warner Bros. Studio Tour London and the Warner Bros. Harry Potter Photographic Exhibition, but also every single currently-available LEGO Harry Potter set – from 76386 Hogwarts Polyjuice Potion Mistake right up through 71043 Hogwarts Castle and 75978 Diagon Alley.
