Six Flags Great America adds MagiQuest for spring 2010
Illinois' Six Flags Great America
unveiled a new interactive attraction today called MagiQuest, a live action interactive game for the entire family. Each group will get a "magic wand" and will collect objects and befriend pixies to save a princess from a dragon.
This new addition comes in a quite busy offseason for Great America, which now has a new family roller coaster, the Little Dipper, from the now-gone Kiddieland Amusement park and Glow in the Park nighttime parade, along with this interactive attraction. Park President Hank Salemi said in a statement:
“We are thrilled to be adding MagiQuest to our lineup of new additions to the park for the 2010 season. We are the first theme park to launch an interactive educational family attraction of this type and are confident our guests will enjoy this new attraction the whole family can experience together.”
Expect to see MagiQuest in the County Fair area of the park, which is an area of high construction and expansion for the last couple of years.
What do you all think TPIers?
Thanks, Anthony. I saw MagiQuest at the IAAPA show in Las Vegas last fall and it looked impressive. I understand that it is in place at a couple of the Great Wolf lodges - can anyone who's been tell us about that?
BTW, I looked it up, there is a charge to play:
We typically don't list extra-charge attractions in the park listings on Theme Park Insider, but they can provide a nice extra for some visitors, especially frequent visitors, who are looking for something special. They also help take a few extra people out of the "regular" queues.
Been to it at Myrtle Beach. Seemed cool, but i ended up hating it. The whole thing was like a live searching game. Not a favorite mine, but other family members loved it. Just make sure you enjoy your video games or else you will get annoyed, like me.
Just what the park needs, another up charge attraction!!!
I wouldn't say SFGA is getting the short end of the stick vs the other parks, but rather all SF parks have gone through a bit of a funk.
Other than The Dark Knight which was a decent, though not great attraction,none of the items that you mentioned are worth much. We havent received anything of The Terminator ride quality in along time, yet alone something like El Toro.
