BOOM! has just received a prestigious TEA Thea Award! Come experience our award-winning multi-sensory, live-action attraction -- now, one of Vancouver’s top things to do for locals and tourists alike.
BOOM! introduces audiences to the story, sights and sounds behind the architectural marvel, Mill No. 3, with an immersive live-action experience -- fun for all ages! This experience offers multiple screens, over thirty speakers, and leading-edge special effects — bringing all 20-storeys back to life!
Reawakened with the magic of special effects, BOOM! reveals the captivating story behind the Mill as a beacon of economic community prosperity. Visitors discover first-hand the historic Mill's purpose, the giant machines that made it work, and the thunderous roar of a working Mill.
While many British Columbians have a personal connection to Britannia Mine—a partner, a parent, or a grandparent who worked at Britannia—few know the Mill’s story and its purpose. With the launch of BOOM!, a new generation can immerse themselves in the magic of this National Historic Site along with the sights and sounds of a “Disney-like attraction”.
This engaging story rich in history offers seat-rumbling special effects and a thrilling conclusion, leaving audiences laughing in surprise -- and touched by the story of this community. BOOM! is a must-see experience for the whole family!
Now playing 7 days a week.
