Imagine all the fun of the carnival without any kids around to spoil it for you. That's what you get at the Playland Nights coming up soon! You can go on rides all night long, play classic carnival games, pig out on corndogs and check out special shows and entertainment. There are even Playland-inspired cocktails and a VIP experience that lets you skip the ride lines and gets you into the exclusive VIP bar.
These late-night after-dark parties are the ultimate fun date-night idea, especially if your date loves rides. From the classic wooden roller coaster and Pirate Ship to the B.C. inspired Hells Gate and the Helevator, there are so many rides to choose from. My personal fave is the Enterprise because it has this retro 80's sci-fi vibe, it totally makes your stomach turn and you can share your car with a friend!
If you can't wait for the Summer to come, then you should get tickets for this ASAP since they usually sell out. The entire fairgrounds are licensed for these nights so you can walk around with your drink roaming from game to game, ride to ride and food cart to food card. I can already smell the mini donuts!
Tickets went on sale for Playland Nights last year around the first week of May, so keep a look-out for updates and tickets coming up this Spring. They've officially confirmed with us that these after-dark parties will be returning for 2019 though! Playland Nights takes place at the Playland Amusement Park at 2901 East Hastings Street in Vancouver.
