Be the first to set sail and play a new live-action interactive water adventure, the Pirate’s Plunder. The award-winning creators of MagicQuest™ are introducing a new prototype waterpark game experience at Schlitterbahn Waterpark Resort, New Braunfels.
AquaQuest, is an adaptation of the MagiQuest game technology brought to life at Schlitterbahn’s unique waterpark experience. Using an AquaGlove, guests can activate various themed water effects, complete whimsical quests and earn points as they navigate through various park attractions while exploring the waterpark.
The Pirate’s Plunder treasure hunt game takes guests on five unique quests in search of the mysterious ruby-red crystal, buried long ago by Red Eye the Pirate, and hidden deep within the adventure. Along the way, treasure hunters encounter surprising water-filled traps and chests filled with gold, as they test their skills and earn their place as a Master Treasure Hunter.
“We are excited to test this new prototype AquaQuest experience this summer at Schlitterbahn,” explained Carin Brown, Aqua Kingdoms’ president. “We’ve combined state-of-the art water effects, wireless technology and waterproof infrared AquaGloves to offer families the next generation of live-action waterpark gaming adventures.”
“We have a long history of introducing world’s firsts, so we are proud to partner with Aqua Kingdoms to test this new innovative experience,” mentioned Darren Hill, general manager for Schlitterbahn Waterpark Resort. “I can’t wait to see our guest reaction as they search for hidden treasure around the park.”
Visiting park guests can enjoy the game for a $5 per game additional charge, plus tax. Pirate’s Plunder will operate through the end of the park’s summer season, September 20.
These MagiQuest guys are all over the place---we played their standalone site in Pigeon Forge this year, and had a really fun time. Between this and the deal that seems to be going down with UO's Harry Potterland, they're really getting around.
