Did you love it so much that you’re willing to prove you’re not a robot in order to win a free trip to the home of Deadpool’s alter-ego Ryan Reynolds?

Because that’s virtually all it takes to enter Tourism Vancouver’s dream Deadpool contest to celebrate the upcoming release of Deadpool 2.

Vancouver’s beautiful backdrops and dynamic downtown districts reprise their Academy Award-neglected 'Best Supporting Location' role in the upcoming film Deadpool 2,” the tourism agency says in announcing the contest. “As the unsung hero of Canada’s Scarred Superhero’s Silver Screen Sequel (try saying that three times fast), Vancouver’s historic, hip and happening ambiance provides all the thrills of ‘real’ Hollywood, only with four times the politeness and 1/16th the pollution.”

The “Vancouver: Home of Deadpool’s Alter-ego, Ryan Reynolds” campaign sweepstakes offers the public a chance to win a grand prize trip for two to Vancouver inspired by Deadpool 2. 

The prize includes:

 • Round-trip flights to Vancouver

• Three nights’ accommodation at JW Marriott Parq Vancouver – “a sleek new hotel that’s almost as sexy as Deadpool himself”

• Exotic driving excursion with Scenic Rush (“because what’s Deadpool without sexy cars?”) 

• Two Ultimate Passes to Science World at TELUS World of Science (includes admission and OMNIMAX film), “where you can expand your mind while soaking in views of the Georgia Viaduct where the aforementioned car chase went down” 

Fans of Vancouver walking tour that passes key sites seen in Deadpool and other films and TV shows shot in Vancouver

• A culinary tour in Railtown, courtesy of Off the Eaten Track (“but don’t tell Deadpool – with his sense of taste gone, he might be murderously jealous”)

• Theatrical walking tour in Gastown and Chinatown – where the bulk of the Deadpool movies were filmed – led by Forbidden Vancouver

• Dinner for two at trendy The Union in Chinatown

• Dinner for two at ultra-elegant Gotham Steakhouse & Cocktail Bar

The contest, which was launched support from 20th Century Fox and the Vancouver Film Commission, is open to Canadian (excluding Quebec) and American residents (excluding Florida).

Fans can visit www.tourismvancouver.com/deadpool for more details and to enter. Those keen to follow in the foul-mouthed rebel’s footsteps can view Tourism Vancouver’s self-guided Deadpool itinerary.
