“The kids loved it”
Review of Wizard Quest

Recommended length of visit: 1-2 hours
Owner description: Wizard Quest is the leader in computer interactive games played in a live setting. The setting is a 13000 square foot fantasy, themed labrynth (we call it the quadrasphere). Your quest is to free or freeze a wizard. To do this you must find answers to riddles and questions that are given to you on your "skrindle". The answers are found in the realms...Some hidden, some obvious and some not so obvious. The quadrashpere is full of secret passages, hidden entrances, a ball pit and a mirror maze.
Useful Information: Activities for older children

We decided to do Wizard Quest as a whole family. Inside is a gigantic fantasy land where you have to find answers to questions you're given and ultimately find hidden things such as wizards. I would have preferred less "find" and more "solve" as there was only one puzzle for us to solve and we happened to see another group solve it. Even still, it was a blast for the kids, teens and adults as we climbed on our hands and knees and slid down some rather thrilling slides trying to beat the time limit in order to "win." We ran out of time, which doesn't mean you have to stop playing, but you can no longer enter answers and get credit for them. The better you do, the more of a discount you get in the gift shop, which we couldn't have cared less about. Overall it was fun, the kids loved it and we would do it again.

Wizard Quest offers an afternoon or activities mostly geared towards late-elementary to middle school age kids. Families can participate together, but the attraction involves crawling through tunnels and tight spaces. The space is family friendly in that you are not required to crawl or get into tight spaces (you may miss some parts), but will still be able to participate in the experience.

Wizard quest needs a magical remodel. Many of the questions are no longer searchable in the relms. The potion machine had "a hole punched in it 3 or 4 years ago" according to the attendant. Many things have been ripped off the walls and it seems unpolished where they changed pathways; many spaces had exposed 2x4's and a few broken tubes were held together with duct tape.

We have done the Wizard Quest attraction 3x times as a family (5 total, 3 kids; 15, 11, 8) and each time we have had a Great experience but note when you arrive you have (2) quest option and the hard one is very hard. You get 1.5 hours to go through there extremely elaborate maze with hidden areas and hidden clues to Free the captured wizards but finding the answers to free the wizards was very hard and none of us were able to complete in allotted time. Whereas the (2) previous times we did the “easy challenge” and were able to free almost all wizards still being challenged.. Each time they change it up slightly so if you have gone before and enjoyed it you most likely will enjoy it again. I highly recommend this attraction for any families that have 5-16 years old as it is physically fun for the young ones while mentally challenging for the older kids and adults.

We have been on this adventure at least 3 to 4 times. As the kids get older, as we get better at figuring the questions out, and as we actually have READ the entire paper they give (to get more ideas of how to gain "glimmers")... We finally freed the wizards in the time limit!!

My recommendations:
1.) Ask the staff person what their name is (that is almost always a question you need to answer -- realm ranger name?)
2.) READ the paper they give you. It has several more ways to gain "glimmers" which helps tremendously in getting enough to free the wizards.
3.) You may want to make this an attraction that you will return to (if you are able to return to the area)--it does get easier as you get more familiar with the realms, where the wizards are, & how to figure out what type of things that you need to pay attention to.

Despite freeing the wizards.... We will still return & likely split into 2 teams & compete against each other. I am too big to comfortably climb thru some of the areas, so I will want a kid/teen on my side though. I do not see myself tiring of this adventure..... EVER!!!

It is an adventure NOT TO BE MISSED!!!! (IMO)
