Six Flags Great America has unveiled a new interactive attraction called Magiquest, which is set to to open at the park in spring 2010.
Magiquest is a live action family attraction which will see groups exploring a fantasy world featuring princesses, goblins, unicorns and dragons. It will be located in the County Fair section of the park, which opens for the 2010 season on April 24.
The game will take place in an 8000-square-foot zone, with guests equipped with a wireless "magic wand" which is used to unlock special effects on the way. The plot centers around a quest to rescue a princess from the clutches of a dragon, though players will meet a number of other characters during their journey.
The Magiquest attraction is not unique to Six Flags Great America, with a number of similar attractions now open at stand-alone locations across the U.S. An accompanying online game is also under development. Further information can be found on the Magiquest website.
Magiquest live attractions can be found in Myrtle Beach in South Carolina, East Hanover in New Jersey, Pigeon Forge in Tennessee, Mall of America in Minnesota, Yorktown Center in Illinois and at five Great Wolf Resorts across the U.S. The game can also be played in Tokyo and Lagunasia in Japan.
In other Six Flags Great America news, the park is hoping to have the Little Dipper coaster up and running in time for June 1, according to a rumor on Screamscape. The park recently purchased the classic wooden rollercoaster from the closed Kiddieland amusement park.
