Wings and Wizards Now Open at BC Place!
A Magical Experience for the Whole Family Awaits this Summer.
“Welcome, wizard apprentice… We have been waiting for you!”
SHINE Experiences is proud to present Wings and Wizards at BC Place — an exceptional, immersive entertainment experience that promises to bring a little magic back into the lives of the young and young-at-heart all summer long.
A marriage between mystical lore and technological artistry, Wings and Wizards is an interactive exhibit that merges storytelling, world-building, and design with cutting-edge interactivity to create a sublime magical adventure. Self-guided and touch-free, Wings and Wizards uses motion tracking, proximity-based devices, lights, projections, props, and soundscapes to weave a truly spellbinding 45-minute experience.
Key to the entire adventure is your trusted magic wand, which will be used by your wizarding group to cast spells, solve riddles, and move through space and time! When your quest comes to its end, the light-up wand is yours to keep!
“Terrifying whispers have taken over the wizarding world:
A rare, jewelled dragon egg has disappeared!
Finding the egg won’t be easy.
Only a real wizard, with true magic in their heart, is destined to find it.
The wizards need your help to save the realm.”
This fantastical exhibit is produced by SHINE Experiences, a non-profit dedicated to bringing pass-through, audio-visual art experiences to the public. Wings and Wizards will showcase the talents of three of Canada’s top locally based production companies: Spectra Event Group and Innovation Lighting, Go2 Productions.
Wings and Wizards has been specifically designed with stringent COVID-19 protocols, in full accordance with British Columbia’s public health guidelines. Onsite rules and procedures for this contactless experience will include a mask requirement, hygiene stations, a definitive audience flow, and physically distanced, timed, and staggered entry for pods of up to 6 people within the same social bubble.
Tickets are available online only via credit card purchase at www.wingsandwizards.com with address verification for Health Region restrictions built into the process.
Wings and Wizards is bringing magic back to Vancouver this summer!
