Spellbinding "Wings and Wizards" experience coming to BC Place this June

May 11 2021, 11:07 pm

A magical experience for the whole family is coming to Vancouver and taking over BC Place next month.

Wings and Wizards is an immersive, family-friendly exhibit that will span over 7,000-sq-ft inside BC Place. Produced by SHINE Experiences, the touch-free exhibition is a mystical adventure that involves both a wizard’s academy and an enchanted forest.

The event is self-guided, using tools such as motion tracking, proximity-based devices, lights, projections, props, and soundscapes. The key to the entire experience, according to organizers, is a trusty magic wand that visitors will use to “cast spells, solve riddles, and move through space and time.”

“Wings and Wizards is an interactive exhibit that merges world-building, art, tech, storytelling, and design to create a truly sublime magical adventure,” organizers state, adding that the event was also designed with stringent COVID-19 protocols in place that are in full accordance with BC’s public health guidelines.

Health and safety measures include mandatory mask use, hygiene stations, timed audience flow, and staggered entry for pods of up to six people within the same bubble.

Wings and Wizards will open to the public on June 8 and operate until September 2021. Tickets will be available to the general public online starting Thursday, May 13 at 10 am. Organizers note that the exhibit will run approximately 45 minutes and includes strobe lights and flickering projections.
