This week-end my family motored south for seven and one half hours to attend the opening day of MagiQuest at Myrtle Beach. My grandson had his ninth birthday and he is an avid fan of the Harry Potter adventure series. He has read each book from cover to cover. Amazing, isn't it? This wonderful adventure park was indeed made for him. He received a unique magic wand in honor of his birthday at the Magic Wand Tree. With it my grandson was able to choose his own customized journey through MagiQuest land, fighting dragons, finding fairies, helping unicorns, and escaping the trickster and shadow creatures. Beforehand the participants were given instructions at a school by the Quest Master on the proper use of the mysteries of the magic wand and they practiced opening treasure chests and illuminating crystals and stones. My grandson collected runes and renewed his wand's powers at the ancient Stonehenge.
"What's new? Harry Potter wannabes can get a taste of the magical life at MagiQuest, an interactive family attraction opening June 4 at Broadway at the Beach. Each player gets a personal magic wand that can set off lightning bolts, open treasure chests and perform heroic deeds in a lifesize video game that requires teamwork, skill and imagination." InsideNova.comMy granddaughters met the Princess of MagiQuest, Princess Candice, and we brought home a new cd album that she recorded exclusively for MagiQuest, and its believers in magic and the celebration of individuality. It is quite fascinating for a child, an adult, or even a princess (as shown here) to wield a real magic wand, with real powers.
