You're never too old to get your hands sticky with cotton candy and dizzy yourself on dozens of rides. Playland will officially open for the season tomorrow and we can't wait to check it out. This year they're even offering free mini golf with admission!
Anyone who grew up in the lower mainland will have a ton of memories of Playland field trips and summer days spent testing out every single ride at the park. From the Bonanza shooting gallery to the torturous Hellevator that skyrockets you way too high, there's something fun and nostalgic for all everyone at Playland!
Playland is the ultimate girl's night out, group date activity and fun get-together with friends. Even waiting in line for rides together is fun because you're sharing the experience and being filled with excitement (or anxiety) as you wait for your turn on Hell's Gate. Rides are the main attraction, but you can also chow down on BeaverTails, Colossal Cones and the classic White Spot Triple O’s.
Playland will open for the season on Saturday, May 4. If you're a Star Wars fan, then you'll know it's also Star Wars Day: May the 4th Be With You so I would encourage you to dress as your favourite Star Wars character if you go on opening day. You can get a season pass to Playland for $95 or a one-day ride pass for $36 if you buy them online.
Don't forget that Playland is also offering free mini golf with admission. Check out their website for more details and opening hours.
