Resort + tech + LARP = awesome

So I’m writing this on my phone from our room at Great Wolf Lodge, where do I begin? First of all, let me be clear, it’s pricey. However, it’s also brilliant. The indoor water park is awesome, if a bit high on chlorine content (what do you expect though). The room key is an RFID bracelet that lets you access all resort facilities and shops…nothing to carry. And the masterpiece (which I am right now trying to decide how to take everywhere) is MagiQuest, a pseudo-LARP ( live action role play) using a magic wand and technology. Quests are issued and tracked, and you wander the hotel in search of clues and treasure. Sort of like local, tech based geocaching. I saw entire families (including ours) climbing 7 flights of stairs (in the ‘secret staircase’) -repeatedly- to capture all the wand points at each floor. Exercise, quests, treasure, experience points….Blizzard/WoW needs to learn how to do this. I must figure out how to do this at my home, neighborhood, local mall/grocery store/etc.
