Behind the scenes
- It seems unusual that a tour to Durmstrang was offered, given it was described as highly secretive about its location. It is likely that visitors were obliviated afterwards, like Triwizard Tournament participants.
- Interestingly, some of the disclaimer text featured in the Rent-a-Carpet advert seen at the Globus Mundi storefront in The Wizarding World of Harry Potter seems to have been directly copied (with minor alterations) from the article on flying carpets here in the Harry Potter Wiki, specifically, a paragraph added in an April 2009 revision of the page.
