'''''Glisseo''''' is a [[spell]] that causes the treads of stairs to flatten, turning the stairs into a slide or ramp. [[Hermione Granger]] used this spell to transform a staircase into a slide during the [[Battle of Hogwarts]] so that she, [[Harry Potter]] and [[Ronald Weasley]] could avoid an attack by some [[Death Eaters]]. This may be the spell used on the [[Gryffindor girls' staircase|girls' staircases]] at [[Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry|Hogwarts]] to prevent boys from entering, as the effects (when activated) are the same.
