Costume Ball 2021 NEW VENUE BLOG

Costume Ball 2021 moves due to Pandemic restrictions

October 23, 2021

After careful consideration by the Science World executive team of the current pandemic restrictions involving public events, namely the continuation of the “no dancing” (policy despite the removal of capacity limits), the decision has been made that the Halloween Costume Ball cannot take place at Science World this year.

Twisted Productions, Hollywood Promotions, and Playhaus Events have spent the last 24 hours considering all options and speaking with our teams and many of our patrons, and overwhelmingly everyone we asked wanted the event to continue in some form, especially after such a long break from gatherings during the pandemic.  As such, we are happy to inform everyone that we have found a new venue for this year’s Costume Ball at the newly renovated Enso Nightclub, located at 750 Pacific Blvd. (the Plaza of Nations) in Vancouver.  

Here’s what you need to know about the event:

  • The format of the event has now changed to include one massive room to accommodate everyone.  There will be limited seating available throughout the venue.
  • We’ve selected our favourite DJs for the night, and added a surprise out-of-town House music headliner to close off the night.
  • The event will now go until 3am!  Doors will still open at 9pm — please come early to avoid line-ups.  You will still be required to show proof of double vaccination.
  • We’ve more than tripled the amount of audio/visual production from what we normally have at Science World, including tons of state of the art lighting and LED walls, and of course our spooky decor and visuals that we would usually have Science World.

NEW Ticket info:

  • If you have already purchased a ticket, that ticket will be honoured and there is no change needed on your part.
  • Due to there now being one large room, we must eliminate the VIP, but we feel everyone will enjoy this party together as one.
  • Anyone who has paid more than $70 for the base price of the ticket (not including service charges), will be refunded the difference.  I.E. if you paid $80 + service charges, you will be refunded $10.
  • REFUNDS – if you are not satisfied with the changes to the event and would like a refund, YOU MUST CONTACT US BY 12pm (noon) on Monday, October 25, 2021 through email at  Please email us from the email address you used to purchase your ticket, and in that email forward us a copy of your transaction.  Please put “REFUND Costume Ball 2021” in the subject.  NOTE:  there are currently no more tickets for the event, so if you do refund your tickets you may not have an opportunity to repurchase.
  • TICKETS – For those that are still looking for tickets, we will only know on Monday afternoon once all refund requests are collected to see how many tickets we have left to sell.  We will update everyone on our social media channels then and give  a few hours before the last tickets (if any) are released.

We are all hopeful that these remaining pandemic restrictions, which limit events of this type, will be lifted in time for our planned New Year’s Eve event “NYE 2022 @ Science World”.   We appreciate your continued support, and we look forward to partying with you at the Halloween Costume Ball at Enso!
