This place is freaking awesome! My 7 year olds love it and so do we (30 somethings). We would go without our kids for even more fun if we could. But its a great family activity.
We were very excited to try out wizard's quest with the changes that they made. We were not disappointed. We usually go at least 2 times each time we visit the Dells so we ended up visiting 3 times! S... read more »
Wonderful concept. We had a blast, and can't wait to do it again. The Earth and Fire realm are wonderful, Air and Water Realm are less innovative and seem a little cheap or cheesy, but, overall, a lot... read more »
Great fun for two intelligent, geeky 30-year olds! Certainly not designed for young kids, so please do not bring them. Climbing, crawling, and lots of clue-gathering and puzzle solving. Such a unique place! My advice: no matter how good you are at puzzles, beating the hardest quests within the time limit your first time is impossible. Its not the difficulty of the puzzles, but the quantity of exploring and clue-gathering required. You really need to have already been through the place to learn the general layout. The exploring aspect, while fun, definitely saps your time limit with the MANY clues you have to find on the hard quest. First timers will have the most fun on a medium quest if you want a challenge. My main gripe: even though we tried to go at the least busy time of day, the amount of other people questing in the same area reduced the fun a bit.
Was great fun but more than a few issues. Our starting person explained nothing. Just handed us the tablet and said good luck. Secondly they flip words. One minute they say find a tome. Then later ask what something is sitting on, a tome, but don't accept tome. Now you need to say book.... Another example was what was above something and it was a item and on the items top was a sun... You name the item and it says no... You needed to say sun. Feels like a way to steal time by showing multiple things but only accepting the off item or name.
This place was amazingly fun in NEARLY every aspect. The puzzles were challenging and my friends and I shouted at each other over them more than once but with five adults, they weren't so hard as to be discouraging. (We did the hardest quest that didn't require extra items - Air) It was THIS close to being a friendship ender but in the end, it was amazing. I'd love to give this place five stars - almost everything about this was more than promised. The staff in the lobby were great and very friendly and apologetic for how long it took for them to get us in. The only thing that prevents me from giving them five stars were the girls at the exit desk. My group got to the last riddle on the last quest when the tablet glitched and counted a right answer as wrong, penalizing us time and costing us the win, but we still had fun and were delighted to get as far as we did. On the way out, when we turned the tablet back in, we asked the girls behind the desk what the answer we missed was, and they told us...without looking up, and in the most condescending tone possible. When we commented (jokingly) that how were we supposed to have known where the answer was, one of the girls commented "Because that's where it was" and they both went back to ignoring us. No "thanks for playing", just condescension and scorn. On the way in, we'd actually heard these two bitching about working there. These girls were rude as hell and nearly ruined the whole experience for us. Y'all definitely need to give some of the employees a talk on customer service because if this had been a group of kids, it probably would have caused a tantrum or two.
This was by-far one of the coolest experiences I've ever had. We were hesitant at first because it was $16 a person and we weren't sure if it was quite our style. It was the best $16 I've ever spent. I wish there had been someone helping us atleast through the entire first question of our quest. Most of our time was spent trying to figure out what we were doing. They explain it quickly before you go in, but for your first time, a little more help would be nice. Someone put so much time and effort (not to mention money) into building this amazing world. The place is so cool, down to the tiniest details. The secret passages and hidden rooms were my favorite. I would not suggest going through the ballpit if you're chlosterphobic. (sp?). It's a bit intense. I highly suggest giving this place a shot. I wish there were more like it! Thank you to the creator of this magical place.
Every time I'm there with my children we have a blast, and now with it updated its even more fun. I wish we had one closer to home, but we drove 3 hours just to go here, it's that much fun. You have to be a geek and be willing to be a kid and climb and crawl to hunt for clues though.
