Guests at Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom have been given the chance to test the park's latest addition, role-playing game Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom.

The game has been put through its paces by Disney Cast Members over the past few months, and Orlando Attractions Magazine reports that the first guests have now been able to participate.

Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom challenges guests to become apprentice sorcerers for Merlin the magician, before helping him to overcome an army of Disney villains that are threatening the park. Players use special playing cards to cast spells, as well as searching for magic symbols that will lead them to the villains' hiding places.

Starting at the fire station, near City Hall on Main Street USA, guests receive a map, a key card a five spell cards. After a short video pre-show, they set off on their adventure around Adventureland, Fantasyland and Liberty Square. Spells include the conjuring-up of fireballs, cyclones and "frantic" frogs, with each one being used to target one of the villains. The spells can be cast using a flick of the wrist.

The new addition is similar in concept to the Kim Possible World Showcase Adventure at Epcot, which takes the form of an electronic scavenger hunt. Launched in January 2009, the experience at Epcot sees guests using "Kimmunicator" devices which can be used to trigger events in the grounds of the World Showcase pavilions.

Full details and photos of the Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom game experience can be found in Orlando Attractions Magazine's report.
