Wings and Wizards is an interactive exhibit that merges art, tech, storytelling, and design to create a truly sublime magical adventure. Self-guided and touch-free, Wings and Wizards showcases the meeting point between technology and magic, making use of cutting-edge interactive technologies, such as motion tracking, proximity-based devices, lights, projections, props, and soundscapes, to weave a truly spellbinding experience. Wings and Wizard’s otherworldly odyssey inhabits over 7,000 square feet inside BC Place, encompassing a Wizard’s Academy and an Enchanted Forest that will both amaze and delight.
The teams have come together to nurture a love of digital and light-based art in our communities, by focusing on intelligent, thoughtful, and playful pieces that drive curiosity and connection. Separately and together, they have created rich multimedia experiences that engage both heart and the mind.
Wings and Wizards has been specifically designed with stringent COVID-19 protocols in place, 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 at the Wings and Wizards website via credit card purchase, with address verification built into that process. Should inter-provincial health restrictions on travel continue past the June 8 opening date, guests may rebook their tickets at no extra charge.
