I remember back in the days when I was a Magic:The Gathering addict and dueled many a kid for their rare card. This was probably about the same time I got the RPG (role-play gaming) bug also.
Well, this last week I went down to Myrtle Beach to enjoy some well-deserved relax time. It ended up at MagiQuest a couple times.
MagiQuest is an interactive game that according to its patents, use RFID technology. It seemed like it was more infrared to me, but I haven’t had a chance to break into my wand yet.
One of the more satisfying adventure games since this takes gaming to a new level. You actually run around a set pointing your wand and following adventures instead of sitting in one place. You end up burning probably all the calories you gained from eating that fabulous seafood while down there also.
Be aware that while it is mainly targeted towards children, there were MANY adults playing. It was actually fun to sit back and watch fathers try to out-do their kids and people with “no kids” that would come in and run around like a bat out of hell.
The wand costs $10.99 and is a one-time fee. Entrance fee is $7.99 for an hour of play. If you like Renaissance Fairs or the like, I would suggest you try MagiQuest. Only one is in Myrtle Beach, SC currently, but there are talks about openings in California, Chicagoland area, and Georgia.
