PlayDome at BC Place

BC Place will be transforming into Canada’s largest indoor carnival for spring break this year as it once again becomes PlayDome.

The 100-foot “Mega Drop” will be joined by 45 other rides like the Zero Gravity spinner, the Ring of Fire, the Super Shot, 1001 Nights, the Ferris Wheel, the Zipper and more. Games, attractions, and a carnival concession will top off the experience.

PlayDome is only around from Friday, March 16th to Tuesday, March 20th, 2012. It will be open every day from 10:00am to 9:00pm except on the very first day when it will open at 2:00pm.

Options include a $25 Dome Pass (valid for all rides), a $6 Guest Pass (required to enter as a spectator), and a $40 Ultimate Pass (multi day Dome Pass). Children under 2 years old are free but cannot go on the rides, for safety reasons. Tickets can be purchased at the door.

In honor of this festive event, the Northern Lights 360 degree light display around BC Place will be illuminated with a colourful carnival theme.

Update I sent John Biehler to BC Place to take some photos during a sneak preview of the carnival.

    I’m wondering, I have a 2, almost 3 yr old. It says under 2 can not ride but if you look at the height requirements on their website, it says minimum height for any ride is 36″. The average 3 yr old is not 36″, do you think they would let her on the rides? I live on the Island and don’t want to travel all the way just to make her stand around and watch her big sister all day!! Thanks for any info!!!!

    Thanks so much for posting the photos. My kids would have been greatly disappointed if we had gone. It looks aimed at younger children.
