While the weather may not agree, summer is slowly creeping closer in Vancouver and there's no better sign that the fast-approaching opening date of Playland Amusement Park!
Saturday, May 6th at 10am, the much loved attraction that has hosted millions of thrillseekers of all ages since it opened in 1910, will be opening its gates for the start of the 2017 amusment park season. Playland will open on Saturdays, Sundays & Holidays until June 16th, when it will be open all week long. This year, the season will open with 3 new family-friendly rides that are sure to excite:
The Bug Whirled - a ride that spins you through a magical land on the new coaster ride.
Flutterbye - get ready to peddle your way to the clouds while flapping your wings.
Dizzy Drop - takes you through to high altitudes, shooting up to the sky then taking the plunge back down.
In additional news, Playland has announced that every Friday during the month of July the park will be hosting a series of 19+ adult only evenings. More details to come. Stay tuned on the PNE/Playland Facebook page to learn more.
