Salt Lake Comic Con FanX™ 2017

  • Kidditch

    Specially designed for indoor play where broomflight is not practical, Kidditch is the sport of choice for wizards looking to work with others to win the day. With shorter goals and modified play, even wizards without standard flying licenses can play!

  • Limestone Labyrinth

    Want to join the Wizard Academy? First you must solve the maze of the Limestone Labyrinth to begin on your journey. History books say it was a magical defense set up to protect the secrets of sorcerers from those lacking the determination to finish what they start.

  • Balloon Beasts

    Fan of balloons? We’ve got you covered! Come get a work of art to admire and play with! From poodles to doodles, there’s a wide variety of balloon art to choose from.

  • Magic Marks

    Visit the Magic Marks to have runes express themselves on your arms, revealed there by the Acolyte Artist. Take care, however, the magic fades after a few days.

  • Princess Tea Party

    Will that be one lump or two? Enjoy a magical experience while having tea with some of history’s favorite princesses! Don’t have to wait for the kettle to whistle as each cup of tea and crumpets are a product of your child’s imagination. Wish Upon a Party started with a desire to take the magic from the pages of a story to the lives of children who could make those stories their own.

  • Face Painting

    Purple Monkey Paints is run by an enthusiastic artist that loves to face paint parties large and small in the Salt Lake City and Northern Utah area. Take on a different persona or simply have a pretty pattern painted on your face by a princess. Face painting is always a hit and is sure to elicit a, “Look at me!” from your child. Face painting designs range from $5 to $15.

  • Reading Roost

    Settle in for a story read by one who has chronicled an adventure. Check the schedule for regular readings and relax with free reading in between. The serious sorcerer studies up!

  • Activity Tables

    Get arty with some activity pages. Take a breather between Kidditch, the Wizard Academy, KidCon Crafts, and the Reading Roost to let the magic flow from your fingers to the page.

Wizard Academy

Salt Lake Comic Con FanX™ 2017

Held three times a day, these classes teach young wizards how to perform magic on their own with materials found around the house. Be sure to register for a class. Each student will receive a full-color folder with instructions for a multitude of tricks they can try out on their friends to amaze and amuse.

  • Dragon Egg Escort

    Cross along a treacherous route to return a dragon’s egg to its home.

  • Fire Swap

    Out of the fire, into the Fire Swamp? Navigate the expanse to proceed on your journey towards wizarding greatness!

  • Rope Romp

    Scramble across this final web and return in glorious victory to amazed onlookers!  You’ve proven yourself physically, mentally, and magically.

  • Monster Toss

    Monsters block the way forward. Lob spells at them to progress!
