The witch broom is a new travel item exclusive to this year's Fortnitemares event in Fortnite.
It will allow you to quickly traverse portions of the Fortnite map in Halloween style and even has a special challenge associated with it, but you need to find the witch broom location first.

Witch broom location in Fortnite explained
To find a witch broom in Fortnite you need to visit Hag's Hollow that is located on the hill south of the gas station in F5 on the Fortnite map.
It's a good idea to head to this location at the very beginning of a match or else you risk other players taking all the witch brooms.
Once you land, you'll find two barrels containing witch brooms outside the house.
You can choose to either search the barrels to make at least one broom appear or smash the barrels with your harvest tool to make three brooms appear.
After this, a witch broom can be picked up like any other item and added to your inventory.
Recent new quests include Touch a Cube, Spirit Vessel Caretaker's footprints, Command Signal, scroll locations, mini-pufts, seismographs, Ghostbusters signs and deploying a ghost trap for the Containment Specialist. Elsewhere in Season 8, you can start using Sideways weapons, partake in Sideways encounters, and find colour bottles for Tonna Fish.
How to use the witch broom in Fortnite
To use a witch broom you need to select it from your inventory like you would any other item in Fortnite.
After that simply use the broom and fly about the map going whether you please until you lose altitude.
As part of the Fortnitemares celebrations there is a 'Travel 100 meters on a witch broom,' which can be quickly completed.
Doing so will reward you with 40,000 XP and the Midas' Revenge loading screen.
Have a good flight!
