“Lots of fun...with limitations”
Review of Wizard Quest

Wizard Quest
Certificate of Excellence

Attraction details
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.

“Lots of fun...with limitations”
Reviewed January 12, 2014

First time around, Wizard Quest is a great deal of fun! The adventure is set in four intricate fantasy rooms, each one representing an element. Upon entry, you are given a page of riddles/scavenger hunt items that you must search the realm for. Once you have some answers, you can log in on a kiosk and find out if you are correct. The more answers you find, the closer you get to finding and saving the wizards.

A couple of limitations:
- it's much more fun if your child can read! Younger kids may enjoy the tunnels and environment, but the QUEST is a little lost on them.
- answers are extremely specific and particular; "doll" may be incorrect because the answer is "elf doll"
-the replay value is somewhat lower; the questions change daily, but the ultimate solution is fixed in stone

“AMAZING TIME!”
Reviewed January 2, 2014

We only had 90 minutes to go on our quest. I think if we would have had 2 hours we would have accomplished it and been less stressed out :)! It was sooo much fun. Everyone from the 8 year old girl, teen boys and adults loved this place. When we walked into the gift shop, we saw the time and couldn't believe we spent 3.5 hours in there having fun. I highly recommend Wizard Quest and we will be back again!

“FUN!”
Reviewed December 30, 2013

very fun and challenging for kids and adults.would recommend the apprentice level for children seven and under. It was a magical and fun experience for my 8 yr old daughter and myself. Try to go when it isn't too crowded.

“Great family activity”
Reviewed December 26, 2013

The Wizard Quest was a great group activity. The staff was extremely helpful and made it the perfect outing for a really cold day. The price was reasonable.

“Christmas at Wizard Quest!”
Reviewed December 20, 2013

Get your game hat on! Our family split up into teams and raced to solve the puzzles and free the wizards. The holiday decorations made the occasion especially festive. Unless you enjoy solving a good puzzle or treasure hunt, I would advise doing the easy quest if going for the first time. The first time we went we were only able to unlock 2 wizards within the time limit--though we were working with a newborn, and four other kids under the age of 11. It is helpful to have kids because they can crawl through spaces and spot things you may not. Just be sure they use the bathroom before your quest starts! Travel light and bring a flashlight. A phone that takes pictures may also be useful. Heaps of fun!!
