Have you ever imagined yourself in one of Tony Stark’s workshops, surrounded by countless versions of his Iron Man armor, each with its own specifications, standing there at attention, larger than life? Ever thought you might be able to life Thor’s mighty Mjolnir hammer, or be able to grasp Stormbreaker with both hands? How about Captain America’s Vibranium shield?
Well, if you live in the Greater Toronto Area, you might be in luck, as the highly popular Marvel Avengers S.T.A.T.I.O.N interactive show makes its way to Canada, following similar exhibits worldwide, including London, Mumbai, Las Vegas, Singapore, Paris and several others.
Conceived by Victory Hill Exhibitions and produced by the Paquin Entertainment Group, the extremely popular show dubbed S.T.A.T.I.O.N., an acronym which stands for Science Training and Tactical Intelligence Operative Network, will allow fans to see original costumes from the feature films, learn more about the franchise’s heroes, villains and supporting characters, while also interacting with various kiosks based on Earth’s Mightiest Heroes.
Currently under construction and set to open at the Yorkdale Shopping Mall, the exhibit should prove an extremely busy venue once it opens, depending on local restrictions and pandemic safety guidelines. Those interested in keeping informed of its latest developments and who wish to get early tickets to visit, should check out the official website for Canada, and the team here at Skip It Or Love It will report further once closer to Opening Day, with on set photos and videos.
Meanwhile, enjoy a trailer clip from the UK venue, which will give you an idea of what to expect from the Toronto version. Enjoy!
(Note that the event will implement and maintain all necessary procedures and protocols to ensure that regulatory health and safety standards are met.)
