Magi Quest: Live The Adventure

I discovered this place for the first time as a coupon from somewhere i was eating in South Carolina. This is basically a place of entertainment using the tech of the Wii before the Wii was invented. The First time you enter Magi Quest you are given the choice of a clan you want to be associated with and customization of your own magic wand which is really a sensor built into the wand. The game stats you on a tutorial on how to use the wand which requires a little force at times to make something work.

This place has multiple locations but i found this place in the south Carolina shopping area of Broadway at the beach. Now first you will start off looking for items like you are on a scavenger hunt and also opening chests which both are marked with a Q in order to activate them, You gain gold in opening chests and if you earn enough you can earn extra time to play and other gifts from the store. You are trying to collect the items you find in this scavenger hunt in a cyber system way. Except for one Quest which all the items need to be collected in ABC order the items you scan to your wand are collected to earn runes. These runes are required to fight boss characters such as a goblin and Dragons of fire and ice. (Truthfully a Ice Dragon to me sounds like an Oxymoron). 

The MagiQuest company always has something more to add year by year it seems also. The last time I went the once useless toppers for wands now come with powers. I own a blue crystal which lets me a free pass against the dragons and goblin. 

With in two visits to south Carolina i must have been there i say about 7 so times. There is an option to do a head to head duel which i haven't done much so i don't understand it as of yet so i was schooled with all these special power ups i had by someone just starting the game.

I just need to say that it is an early version of Wii tech and that there aren't many around and if you are looking for more info go to Magiquest.com. They are trying to expand into the mmorpg world like a second life version of the MagiQuest game.

Whoa, Kris, you're opening me up to a whole new world with your reviews.  Build your own remote controlled cars, a Canadian singer, and now a live action role-playing game?  Sounds like you're living quite the life! :P  I heard about these types of establishments, like, a decade ago, but didn't know there were still any around, what with computer games being so popular and all now.  Love this review, and I bet the folks following the gaming content on the site do, too! :)

About this topic

Wiki

MagiQuest is a live action role-playing game where the participant serves as the main character. Players, called Magi in the game, use an infra-red (IR) emitting wand to complete quests, adventures, interact with objects, find gold, and duel. When cast, the wand sends out an ID which tells the game which account to access on the server. At certain locations there are also optional items such as the key which lets you unlock secret areas or the compass which allows you to go on compass exclusive quests. Completing certain compass quests unlocks more features such as a map showing the location of every object from the basic quests. In the past you were able to use it to send messages to your friends wand summoning them to the stone circle in the center of MagiQuest at Myrtle Beach, however this feature was removed when the compass quests were added. The Questmaster and others suggest activities but it is ultimately up to the player. The first MagiQuest opened in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina at noon on June 15, 2005. The opening celebration included live appearances by actors featured in the quests.

Additional MagiQuest locations have subsequently opened in or have been announced for East Hanover, New Jersey, in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, at the Mall of America in Bloomington, Minnesota, and in Lombard, Illinois. Additional facilities include those located within Great Wolf Lodge indoor waterpark resorts in Williamsburg, Virginia; Grand Mound, Washington; Grapevine, Texas; Kansas...
