Since the late 1990s, many of us have imagined what it would be like to attend a school of witchcraft and wizardry. Well now may be the chance to live out that fantasy.
A new exhibit, Wings and Wizards, is coming to BC Place Stadium this summer and will feature a Wizarding Academy.
Presented by SHINE Experiences, the event is described to be “an interactive exhibit that merges world-building, art, tech, storytelling, and design to create a truly sublime magical adventure.”

About the Exhibit
The exhibit itself will span over 7,000-sq-ft. Using cutting-edge interactive technologies and motion tracking devices, it is said to create a fun and immersive environment for the whole family.
The journey begins with the visitor being given a LED light-up wand. This will be used inside the exhibit and to take home as a memento.
They will then be sent on a self-guided journey roaming the hallway of a Wizard Academy and an Enchanted Forest. A story will be revealed as you progress, with a quest to complete by casting spells, solving riddles, and moving through space and time.
