Halloween activities this year might look a little different due to the global pandemic, but there are still ways you and your loved ones can share a twisted good time in a safe manner — like checking out the all new Shattered at The Beaumont: A Wicked Walkthrough Exhibit opening this week.
The 10,000 square-foot Beaumont Studios event space and art gallery (316 W 5th Ave.) has been transformed into an immersive and touch-free experience where guests navigate a labyrinth of rooms, stairways and an outdoor courtyard full of lights, lasers, electronic illusions, soundscapes, and even live action entertainment.
For those that love a good mystery, there is also a puzzle for guests to attempt to solve as they make their way through the exhibit. Unlike a traditional haunted house, Shattered focuses less on scaring participants and more on providing a spooky visual and audible treat. Think shrieking holograms, creepy digital projections, 3-D video and more.
Helping make everything come “undead” are collaborations with dozens of Vancouver-based artists and local companies, including video production experts Go2 Productions and Innovation Lighting specializing in professional stage lighting.
Please observe the facility’s COVID-19 protocols. Face coverings must be worn, and all staff and performers on site are donning the appropriate PPE. Prior to entering, visitors will be temperature checked via a touchless machine at the front door, and hygiene stations are located throughout the property with soap and water and hand sanitizer.
In addition, the audience is guided in a one-way direction and entry is timed and staggered. Group sizes are limited to six people within the same social circle.
Tickets, available online, are $20 for adults and $15 for children 12 and under. The event runs until Oct. 31 every Wednesday and Thursday from 6 to 10 p.m. and Friday to Sunday from 4 to 10 p.m.
