Imagine this. You are a magi on an adventure that will take you into the dark realms of a magical world where you bravely battle a goblin king, rescue a pixie named Serena and battle Charlock the Red Dragon. Yes, this is a universe of fantasy but it manifests into the reality through MagiQuest, the world’s largest live action game.
However, everyone in the world can’t play it anywhere. If you want to engage in a MagiQuest mission, you have to travel to South Carolina, New Jersey, Tennessee, North Carolina, Washington, Texas, Kansas, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Virginia, Wisconsin, Canada or Japan.
Fortunately for guests of The Breakers Resort, an oceanfront hotel in Myrtle Beach, you only have to travel 1.4 miles to experience this interactive adventure where gargoyles and ghouls are present, even if you don’t see them.
But you have the power to conquer all you survey by harnessing the powers of your wand and walking through the castle-like labyrinth that is the 20,000 square foot domain called MagiQuest. In this kingdom, you can, with a flick of your wand, place charms on more than 250 various artifacts and effects and also gather gold.
As you duel evil beings and creatures, you play the part of hero. You rescue creatures and mystical beings in need of your bravery, but most importantly, in need of your wand, a weapon that wields great power and remembers everything you do with it while on your journey.
Once you have warred against the goblin king, returned precious stones to the princess and defeated the mighty dragon, you might discover you thirst for more adventure.
Only a trip to MagiQuest will reveal the answer.
