PNE Playland announces it’s opening date
Get your funny hat and prepare your stomach for too many mini donuts, because PNE Playland is back in business this May. Starting on May 4, you’ll be able to go experience Vancouver’s best (and only) outdoor amusement park.
As the oldest amusement park in Canada, Playland has been a Vancouver favourite for 107 years and counting. That’s old as heck, and we want to see it go for another century, at least.
We are big fans of Playland. Head out there, get your fill of rides ranging from tame to insane, then play a round of mini golf. For us, the top pick is definitely the wooden roller coaster. An incredibly fast-paced cart of humans meets wooden supports? Count us in. Life’s a thrill ride, folks!
We also recommend trying to win a comically oversized plush toy from one of the midway games. Is it completely unnecessary? Of course, but it’s absolutely hilarious if you walk away with one.
When: Opens for the summer on May 4th
Where: 2901 E Hastings Street
