In Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, there are three thrilling events that chosen wizards from each school (pretty sure it was four from each school and there are I think two schools other than Hogwarts) had to compete in these events. Here are the events:
- Wizard/witch must try to seize the golden egg from an arena while being chased and hunted by a type of dragon, possibly without dying.
- The competitor must rescue students at the bottom of a lake using a special seaweed that aids breathing underwater. The enemies in this are mermaids.
- The competitors much enter a maze and get out via portkey. This was a deadly one as taking the wrong turn possibly leads to trapping. This went horribly wrong as two competitors (Harry and Frederick) went to a dummy portkey after trying to outrun a closing maze channel. It took them straight to Voldemort, and Frederick was killed by Voldemort's curse.
Only one of these events was worth watching, and it was the Dragon. In the other two, the spectators were either staring for hours at a lake surface waiting for something to happen and waiting for someone to arrive out of the maze.
Why didn't the school come up with a way for the spectators to actually see what was going on in the other two events, as it is meant to be magical?
