Overview

Playland is part of the Pacific National Exhibition (PNE) fairgrounds in Vancouver and is BC’s most famous amusement park. Playland features exhilarating rides and attractions for all ages, exciting midway games, mini-golf, a climbing wall, haunted mansion and a variety of delicious food. Playland offers over 35 rides and attractions, including four exciting roller coasters. One of the most loved and talked about attractions at Playland is the historic Wooden Roller Coaster. This spectacular coaster has been operating at the park since 1958 and is cited as a “Coaster Classic” by the American Coaster Enthusiasts organization, which is an honour shared by only 22 other wooden coasters in the world. For the more adventurous visitors, Playland offers 15 extreme rides and attractions including the extreme swing ride Atmosfear, which takes you up 218 feet while spinning 70km/hour and The Beast, cited as Canada’s most extreme pendulum ride. For those looking to experience a bit of thrill with the entire family, Playland features 17 family and kids rides including three new family rides for 2016, a spinning coaster, Bug Whirled, a peddle operated ride, Flutterbye and a tower, Dizzy Drop. For those hoping to capture amazing views of Vancouver, the Westcoast Wheel ferris wheel will provide just that! Of course, a visit to Playland is not complete without a ride on the historic Wooden Roller Coaster. Unique to Playland is Kids Playce, an area designated for parents and families with children between the ages of 2-10. Kids Playce provides the perfect setting for families looking to spend some time together in a clean, safe and kid-friendly environment. Bring your friends and family out to Playland for a full day of fun! Playland is open from May 6 to September 17.

I went with my daughter and her friend. I was there to supervise the kids. No rides for me. Charged me full $37 entry charge. Ridiculous rip off. Never going back!

Playland just opened for the 2018 season and is only open from 10:00 AM until 06:00 PM until the weather becomes better. The admission is fairly modest given that this also entitles one to the rides. We found that just over 3 hours was sufficient...More

Every year I visit playland for my birthday and enjoy it every time. A good majority of the workers are friendly, usually the ones at the coaster, foods good but after a while the rides get boring. Need more excitement!!!

This theme park is still one of the coolest places to come to during the summer especially during the PNE. The Beast ride is so fun and probably the most intense ride at park! Definitely worth coming once.
