The Leviosa Challenge was a room on the second floor of Hogwarts Castle, housing an obstacle course designed for practising the Levitation Charm, Wingardium Leviosa. The obstacle course contained a number of Challenge Stars, which had to be collected for successful completion of the course. It also contained a number of objects useful for practising the spell, such as special blocks that sprouted wings when the Levitation Charm was used on them, assisting in the levitation already provided by the charm. Professor Filius Flitwick had his second year students run through this course during the 1992-1993 school year as a refresher on the Levitation Charm, which had been taught by him the previous year in another challenge.[1]
