Immerse yourself in MIRAGE-a virtual experience at Metropolis at Metrotown

Last week, my family and I had the pleasure of walking through the new Summer virtual experience “MIRAGE” at Metropolis at Metrotown. This visual, audio, and digital experience is absolutely mesmerizing!

The MIRAGE experience is 2-minutes full of colorful, state of the art projection technology, with a mirrored ceiling and floor. Once we entered we stood on a walkway bridge and immersed ourselves in the virtual tour.

This is something my daughters and I have never experienced before. My middle daughter was in awe when she saw her favorite color turquoise splash through the screen, and my eldest daughter had her phone out the entire time so she could capture the experience to share. The reason she felt so compelled to share is because when you share your experience on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram & Snapchat and tag @MetropolisatMet using the hashtag #METMIRAGE  you can win a $1000 shopping spree!! And, who doesn’t want to win a shopping spree!!?!

This experience is suitable for all ages. That said, the next time you’re in the mall for some shopping, check out this captivating tour and you could  win a $1000 shopping spree; just for sharing! (The contest runs until September 5th.)

I love experiencing things for the first time with my family. It doesn’t matter if it’s a 2 hour  3D film or a 2-minute walkthrough like the MIRAGE virtual tour. We will always remember the time we immersed ourselves in the cool, stimulating virtual tour at Metropolis at Metrotown.

“Technology is increasingly being used in our daily lives. We wanted to provide customers with a fun and unique experience that incorporates art and technology and MIRAGE is just that,” said Judy Black, Marketing Director at Metropolis at Metrotown. “It’s innovative, memorable and something that customers of all ages will be able to enjoy.”
