Zane Wylie’s latest skull replicas feature Harry Potter artwork. Dubbed Hogwarts Skulls, the new collection includes all four Hogwarts house crests.

Wylie explains that he got the idea for the skull hunt when he stumbled upon Universally Crafted Orlando on Facebook. This community of artists craft art pieces related to Universal Studios and place them at the Park for people to find. The first Harry Potter skull Zane hid was the Ravenclaw skull which took five minutes to find.

Zane says he enjoyed the experience so much that he decided to continue the hide-and-seek game, and has since hidden a Hufflepuff Skull and a Voodoo Donut skull – he loves donuts – at the Park, both of which were successfully found.

Articles have been written about Wylie’s Hogwarts skull hunt, driving many fans to the Park. People also started subscribing to Zane’s mailing list to make sure they don’t miss the next game. As a result, Zane’s skull hunt – as it came to be known – has led to a significant increase in the number of visitors to the Park. Reportedly, with so many fans visiting the theme park to seek the hidden Harry Potter skulls, attendance was up 5% compared to similar days in the previous seven years.
