Harry Potter 'Quidditch' Game Recreated: Six Skydivers Hurl Themselves from Plane at 14,000 Feet

It's a dream for every "Harry Potter" fan to be able to at least experience one of the magical things that Harry and his friends experienced at Hogwarts. And though that is entirely impossible, a group of Colombian skydivers made the wizarding sport Quidditch happen—sort of.

According to a report by, a video showed . Bringing along with them are the necessities of the fictional sport as described in J.K. Rowling's brilliant series, which include brooms, a quaffle and a goal ring.

The 2-minute video opened with an introduction in Spanish language. Uproxx translated it to English and it reads: "Six of our own, fans of the most famous wizard in the world, decided to bring to the books' sport to life."

It then featured their jump out in the sky as they hold on to their non-magical brooms to fly after the special flying ball. With air blowing hard into their faces, the group struggled to make the game look as realistic as it could. The ring-shaped goal was held by two skydivers and before the video could end, one of the daring "players" managed to score a goal, which is equivalent to 10 points under conventional rules in the series.

The entire stunt looked fun and very much a dream come true for any "Harry Potter" fan but it cannot be denied that what the skydivers did was a difficult task. As detailed by Zimbio, the said game was captured by Colombian telecommunications company Empresa de Telecomunicaciones de Bogotá (ETB) for an advertisement. They posted the video on April but it is still a hit until today. The video was intended for a promotion of a new mobile plan but the stunts are all real.

And while not all fans will have the opportunity to play Quidditch while skydiving, they can still enjoy the game through the United States Quidditch Association, which was set up back in 2005. Since then, countries have been competing in two World Cups since 2012. The game is pretty much similar to the book just without the flying on broomsticks.
