What is required for entry?Each individual member of your team requires a ticket for entry. No exceptions. Tickets will be scanned via phone SquadUp QR code or PDF printout. If your teammates will be arriving at different times, ensure that each member has a unique PDF ticket (to prevent 1 ticket being scanned twice and us having to deny entry). Upon purchasing the table, you'll receive an email with the corresponding number of individual tickets.
Will there be additional tickets sold at the door?If tickets are available, yes. However, we do anticipate a complete sell out.
How does seating work?Each purchase is for a specific table with a number of guaranteed seats. Know the exact number on your team prior to purchasing - no size exchanges. Sales are final. Upon purchasing your table, you will receive an email with individual tickets to distribute to your team. Ensure that each member of your team has a unique PDF ticket. At registration, teams will receive their Hogwarts Express ticket with their assigned table number. No hassle about finding your tables and seat the night-of!
Can we request a specific table or location?No, tables will be assigned based on team size and order purchased. If you have a special request or need (such as handicap seating), please click the envelope in the upper left corner of your screen and let us know in advance.
The table size I need is sold out - now what?Tables are sold based on number of seats available at the table - once that table size is sold out, they're gone. You'll have to adjust your team size accordingly on the table sizes available if you'd still like to attend.
Can we combine different table sizes?No. Tables are arranged specifically to maximize the number of teams that can play - they are scattered throughout the venue and cannot be rearranged or combined. Do not purchase multiple tables in an effort to combine them - limit one table per team.
What time does the event begin?Doors open at 6pm, with trivia beginning promptly at 7:30pm.
What's the difference between the Undercard and Main Events?The main events (both 10.30 and 10.31) have $1000 cash prize. Due to popular demand, we've added the undercard night as a last chance to win tickets to the main event and thus have a shot at $1000. The trivia will be different and slightly easier at the undercard - consider it a "warm up".
Where will the event take place?The event will take place at Fado's Irish Pub on 7th Street.
Can under-21s attend?Unfortunately, no. Harry Potter Trivia: Undercard Edition is a strictly 21+ event.
Will there be food and drink?Absolutely! Fado's Irish Pub will have their delicious menu and a fully stocked bar. Sam Adams will be on special.
What is the maximum team size?Maximum team size is 10 people. Tickets are available based on the table size. Individual tickets cannot be added or refunded. Know your team size before you purchase.
What does my ticket include?Tickets are only $5 per person and include your first Sam Adams beer and a reserved table*. Standing room only specific tickets do not include guaranteed seating.
Can myself or a teammate arrive late?Yes, registration will have staff for a half hour after the event start time (7:30pm) and you will be escorted to your team's table. After that time, you will wait at the entrance and checked in at the end of the current round.
Should we wear costumes?It's not required, but the hosts may award bonus points... the more magic the better!
What does my team need to bring?Cages (containers) to hold cell phones will be provided. However, teams may get creative and bring their own. Costumes are highly encouraged. District Trivia will provide quills and exam sheets.
What are the prizes?Below are the prizes for Harry Potter Trivia: Undercard Edition. It's your only way remaining to have a chance at $1000 cash!
- 1st Place: 8-top table and VIP Happy Hour tickets to 10.31 Harry Potter Trivia Main Event
- 2nd Place: 4-top table and VIP Happy Hour tickets to 10.30 Harry Potter Trivia Main Event
What is the trivia format?Trivia will follow District Trivia's regular format. Obviously all questions will be based in the Wizarding World - books, movies, supplemental texts and general canon are fair game.
How do you prevent cheating?In addition to anti-cheating spells, staff will be monitoring the room while questions are being asked. All team's cell phones must be placed in their "cage" (a container) at the start of each round and remain there until the host announces teams are clear to use their phones. There is a zero tolerance policy for cheating - teams suspected will be escorted from the premises and no refunds will be given. Tables cannot be combined and teams cannot help other teams.
I still have a question...Click the envelope in the upper left corner and select "Harry Potter Trivia" from the drop down menu. Our staff will respond as soon as possible.
