I’m finally getting back to finishing up my posts on Grapevine/Dallas. After eating lunch at the Rainforest Cafe in Grapevine Mills Mall we went to the Great Wolf Lodge for MagiQuest. I had been wanting to do MagiQuest for a few years since I first found out about it and this time we were finally able to do it.
There are two types of realms for MagiQuest. There are the Kingdom Realms and then the locations within the Great Wolf Lodge which are Forest Realms. The first time you play you have to purchase a wand which will save all of your information so that you can use the wand over and over and continue your game. You also purchase play time. We got a package that came with a wand, play time (4 days), and a MagiBelt to hold the wand. The boys also got toppers for their wands but I don’t remember if those were included in the package or they bought them separately. Both boys picked Dragon Wands and Connor picked a Dragon topper and JT picked a Unicorn horn topper.
You also receive a Book of Wisdom which tells you everything you need to know to complete your quests. To start the game you take your wand to one of the trees…I know the tree has a name but I can’t think of it. You wave your wand at the tree and then choose which quest you want to do, some quests will require that you complete others first or have a certain amount of gold or some other requirement.
Once you go to the tree to start your quest you read what it says in your Book of Wisdom and follow the clues. I wish I had it in front of me right now so that I could give a better example but it will say things like take the Hidden Stairs up 3 flights to the Icicle Frost or in the Whispering Woods dwells the wise one (except it actually rhymes). Once you figure out where you need to go the item that you need to find can be hidden in a picture or it can be an actual physical item like a treasure chest or a statue. You can also just point your wand at various things like the treasure chests and lights to earn gold.
We had a lot of fun at MagiQuest. The boys can’t wait to go back.
