About MagiQuest

MagiQuest, at Broadway at the Beach in Myrtle Beach, S.C., is the first MagiQuest in the world. MagiQuest is the first entertainment venue of New Kingdoms, LLC, a joint venture of Burroughs & Chapin Company, Inc. of Myrtle Beach, S.C. and Creative Kingdoms, LLC of R.I.

MagiQuest is a live-action adventure game that immerses players in a world of fantasy propelled by sophisticated technology. To participate in the game, each player receives a “magic wand” powered by patented technology that brings MagiQuest’s 20,000 square foot “enchanted” realm to life.

In one respect, MagiQuest parallels the architecture of a video game. Players select from a variety of Quests and Adventures that, once successfully completed, result in an accumulation of special powers. As these powers increase, players proceed to higher levels of the game where the level of difficulty also increases.

But MagiQuest is not confined to a computer screen. It places players inside of a three dimensional, interactive fantasy world where players must follow clues that lead deeper and deeper into a magical realm populated by a dazzling range of characters and creatures. It fosters a problem-solving, shared discovery process between family members of all ages.

MagiQuest was recently featured as the cover story in the October, 2006 issue of Funworld, the magazine of the International Association of Amusement Parks & Attractions (IAAPA). IAAPA has more than 8500 members in 82 countries.
