Geocache Description:

This is a quick, family friendly multi-cache in Urbandale. However, there is a twist...

Welcome to the new Gringott’s Cache. Inspired by the Harry Potter series by JK Rowling, this multi-cache has two options:
1) The wizarding world has left a small area for cachers to exchange the usual geoswag. Please feel welcome to do so in this part of the cache, and please sign the logbook.
2) There have been a number of mysterious withdrawals of geocoins being made without a deposit. The goblins that run Gringott’s have become very angry with this, and have decided to tighten security by adding a combination vault containing the geocoins (a cache within a cache so to speak). There is another logbook for those who crack the combination. The combination can be found by figuring out the clues in the following three waypoints (In the following order):
a. Hogwart's Lake
b. Sirius’ Hideout
c. The Ministry of Magic

DO NOT TAKE A COIN WITHOUT LEAVING ONE!

The Ministry of Magic is threatening to close Gringott's to cachers if cachers continue to take coins without leaving them!

PLEASE DO NOT GO INTO ANYONE'S BACKYARD TO FIND THE FINAL STAGE.
