    Looked kind of poo to me, actually.
    Dressing in costume and taking on a persona is the fun part of LARP.
    This just looks like a pooty video game with walking...

    I had plans to do something similar 10 years ago. My idea was just like laser tag but with a medieval/fantasy twist... and it was Larping. The costumes would be geared up like fencing suit so when you get hit with a foam weapon the damages are recorded.

    I had started making the designs-blueprints for some buildings and then noticed that, in a monetary-based economy, the world would just not approve of this idea and it would cost me a fortune just to keep a bunch of people entertained for a short while.

    They have something like this at the Great Wolf Lodge by me. You have to go on an adventure throughout the hotel, and carry around a little wand. It`s kind of fun. Little kids love it. Paintings talk to you, there are treasure boxes and all sorts of things.

    Oh and basically everything you saw when the camera showed the room from the top that is basically all there is. there is an upstairs and it goes around in just a circles and theres only 2 other smaller rooms that you go through and you use these magic wands with sensors in them to open chests and finish quests. You have to go to this big thing and it shows a video of a wizard that tells you the things you need to collect and that is pretty much all you do really. "collect" things with your wand. There are a few quests you do that are semi-interactive that will have like a princess or some rogue chick talking to you to tell you how you did on a quest or that they need help.So like i said it`s kinda of a fun thing to do for laughs if you`re into MMORPG`s but i wouldn`t take it seriously.

    Looks similar to a "Laser Tag" complex I used to go to in the late 80`s in El Paso, Texas, but a lot less fun. The entire building was set up electronically for apposing teams to hunt each other in. There were major competitions and championships in huge, obstacle and cubby-hole filled rooms to hunt in. The armor consisted of a networked helmet that gave you audio cues when someone was near, when you were on target, when you hit your target, when you were being targeted and when you were hit, a sensor vest and an infra-red pistol. Two teams enter, one team leaves. Forget FPS games, this was the real thing and a lot more fun.

    I`ve been there on my vacation to Myrtle Beach last year. That is the particular one at Myrtle Beach. It`s the most awesome fun I`ve had since the Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion. My highest rank was Junior Magi, but on the autumnal equinox, I`m headed to Great Wolf Lodge in Williamsburg. For those of you that haven`t been there, it`s an hour`s drive away from Richmond, VA, to the east. It has a Magiquest adjacent to the Lodge.

    Hey Knoxville912, it`s also the gayest poo iver ever done ever lol - Seriously, I went to it at the boardwalk in Myrtle Beach. It was actually so pathetically.... pathetic that even the 8 year old in our group talked us all into leaving. I like the fire-breathing dragon on top of the building was so much more fun to see.
