Brand-new live action game challenges players to save the world's light using magical wands

MADISON, Wis., Aug. 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- For the past several years, guests at Great Wolf Lodge have become Master Magi as they played the unique, live action, interactive gaming adventure, MagiQuest®. Now, a new experience is coming to the family entertainment resorts that takes players on quests through new worlds and offers fun for everyone with the wave of a wand.  ShadowQuest, the latest game from Creative Kingdoms, LLC, creators of MagiQuest, challenges players to embark on a journey to save the light.  



ShadowQuest will debut at Great Wolf Lodge in Wisconsin Dells, WI on August 23, followed by installation at six additional Great Wolf Lodges this fall. The resorts in Mason, Ohio; Grapevine, Texas; Grand Mound, Washington; Pocono Mountains, Pennsylvania; Williamsburg, Virginia; and Concord, North Carolina will soon challenge players of all ages.

ShadowQuest is a completely new adventure and game. Utilizing the same wand technology of its sister game, MagiQuest™, ShadowQuest takes players through the resort in search of crystals, artifacts and magical places. They can also summon Lumina, leader of the light pixies to help choose which quest to embark on.

ShadowQuest features ten quests, a "Vanishing Light" adventure and for those who successfully accomplish each step, a final battle against the evil yeti Malaki. The game, with its fantastical theme and rich, digital environments will blend into the Great Wolf Lodge resorts alongside the MagiQuest stations. Players can start and stop the game at any time; each wand stores every feat and battle played for easy pick up on a future visit. The same wand also stores players' MagiQuest games and accomplishments.

"We are so excited to debut ShadowQuest at our resorts," said Kim Schaefer, chief executive officer, Great Wolf Resorts, "We have wanted to bring a new experience to families who already love MagiQuest, as well as add something to engage kids who haven't yet played the game. With the wave of a wand—literally—the entire family can take an adventure together."

Players will select from a variety of quests and adventures that result in a collection of special powers. As these powers increase, players proceed to higher levels of the game where the level of difficulty also increases. ShadowQuest is not confined to a computer screen. It places players inside a three-dimensional, interactive fantasy world where they must follow clues that lead deeper into a mythical realm populated by an array of characters and creatures.
