Wings and Wizards is the magic B.C. needs right now

The multi-sensory, magical experience takes over B.C. Place starting in June

Wings and Wizards, a larger-than-life, magical experience coming to B.C. Place in June, is just what everyone needs right now, says Gemma Scott, operations manager at Go2 Productions, which uses technology to transform physical spaces into magical events.

“We want to bring a little joy and magic back into people’s lives,” says Scott. “Wings and Wizards is something families can do together that’s just a little different.”

Wings and Wizards is an interactive exhibit that merges world-building, art, tech, storytelling and design to create a truly magical adventure that takes apprentice wizards on a quest to find a rare, jewelled dragon egg, which has disappeared!

Self-guided and touch-free, Wings and Wizards showcases cutting-edge interactivity, including motion tracking, proximity-based devices, lights, projections, props and soundscapes to weave a truly spellbinding experience. Scott says it’s hoped anyone who attends Wings and Wizards will embrace the theme by dressing up in their finest wizard-inspired costumes.

“And not just the kids,” says Scott. “A lot of young adults seem to be very enthusiastic about it, especially the ones into cosplay [the act of dressing up as a character from a movie, video game or book].”

Wings and Wizard’s otherworldly odyssey inhabits more than 7,000-square-feet of B.C. Place and includes the Wizard’s Academy and Enchanted Forest. This fantastical exhibit is produced by SHINE Experiences, a non-profit company dedicated to bringing walk-through, audio-visual art experiences to the public, as well as Innovation Lighting and Spectra Event Group.

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 wand is yours to keep.

Scott says Wings and Wizards has been specifically designed with stringent COVID-19 protocols in place, which are in full accordance with B.C.’s public health guidelines.

To that end, tickets are only available online by credit card with address verification built into the process. Other COVID safety measures include a mask requirement, hygiene stations, one-way pathways marked clearly with signs, and physically distanced, timed and staggered entry for pods of up to six people within the same social bubble.

“It’s really important that people are on time so they can start within their 15-minute window,” says Scott. “Or there’s a chance they won’t be able to take part.”

Wings and Wizards runs from June 8 through September and tickets are on sale now at wingsandwizards.com/tickets or via Ticketmaster.ca. Children two and younger are free.

  • 1-pack with 1 wand: $65

  • 2-pack with 1 wand: $100

  • 3-pack with 1 wand: $115

  • 4-pack with 1 wand: $130

  • 5-pack with 1 wand: $155

  • 6-pack with 1 wand: $180

  • Additional wands can be purchased for $30 each at the time of purchase

As well, if you’re planning a visit from outside the city, StayVancouverhotels.com is offering four free tickets with every two-night stay at a participating hotel.

Note: Strobe lights and flickering projections will be part of the exhibit, which runs about 45 to 60 minutes from entry to exit.
