How to Get Banners on Either Side of the Great Hall in "LEGO Harry Potter"


In "LEGO Harry Potter: Years 1-4," you need to collect all 200 Gold Bricks to fully complete the game. You can earn one Gold Brick by unraveling four banners in the Hogwarts Great Hall entrance area. The banners hang out of your reach, so you can't use physical attacks to knock them down. A blast of magic, though, will do the trick.

  • Head to the Great Hall on the north side of Hogwarts. Climb the stairs in the entrance hall. You'll see two folded banners on the left and right side of the stairs.

  • Target a banner by holding down the "B" button on the Wii. On Xbox 360, hold down the "X" button. On PlayStation 3, hold down "Square."

  • Press "Z" on the Wii to zap the banner with magic. On the Xbox, press "B" to cast magic. Tap "Circle" on PlayStation 3. Repeat this for the banner on the other side of the stairs.

  • Continue upstairs and look for the banners on the wall in front of you.

  • Target both banners and zap them with a spell. When you unfold all four banners, a Gold Brick appears.

Tips & Warnings

  • Gold Bricks unlock secret bonus levels in Gringott's Vault. Each level costs five Gold Bricks.
  • If you have difficulty aiming at the banners on the wall and you're playing on Xbox 360, you may need to change your Y-Axis controls. Quit the game, go to the dashboard and set Y-Axis to "Normal."
  • You'll rescue a Student in Peril when you knock down the green banner.
  • Collect all 200 Gold Bricks to get "The Bonus Level Is Yours" achievement or trophy.
