It is that wonderful time of year again, that is right – Playland is opening once again and that means Summer really is coming and all of Vancouver is thrilled about it. Every year our city and even folks from all over the world love to come out and visit out amazing amusement parks and there are so many reasons why. Every year they make it better and better and this year my family and I are super excited to see what fun they have in store for us this year. Vancouver Playland opens May 4th this year and that marks the beginning of a magical Summer season for Playland and the PNE.
Thrill seekers can choose from over 35 rides and attractions, including Playland’s most historic and beloved attraction, the Wooden Roller Coaster (rated #1 wooden coaster in Canada) and Canada’s most extreme pendulum ride, The Beast. Or take a wild spin on Crazy Beach Party then later strap yourself in on the Hellevator, with its invigorating and fantastic 200-foot free fall!
If you are like my boys you will be spending the day in line for the Wooden Roller Coaster which is definitely our families favorite. Giving us the perfect amount of thrill and we can’t get enough of it – in fact it is a big tradition in our house so I hope that this year it is up and running for our visit opening day!!
Family attractions such as Pacific Adventure Golf or the Climbing Wall will keep aspiring golfers and alpinists busy and in between they can win some prizes at BC’s largest midway, which is open all summer long as well! Buen Gusto Tacos and Totchos, Cheese Please, and Triple O’s return to provide scrumptious snacks to foodies, while FunDunkers Mini Donuts, the Candy Shoppe, S’Luscious and BeaverTails will satisfy everyone’s sweet tooth.
Playland One Day admission passes are currently available online and will give families and thrill seekers access to over 35 rides and attractions, and an assortment of games. A great chance to check out the park if all your kids are into are the rides!
So make sure to get your advance tickets and get your family and friends out for some fun!
