The latest advertising from PNE Playland encourages us to “Stay fun, Vancouver!” and after 97 years, Playland definitely knows all about fun in Vancouver.

Our local amusement park is now open daily where you can enjoy swinging on Canada’s most extreme pendulum ride, The Beast, soaring above the clouds on the Atmosfear, twisting and turning on Playland’s iconic Wooden Roller Coaster and many more rides!

Spend a fun day out with the whole family playing midway games, putting at mini golf, hanging at the Kids Playce, and of course enjoying those irresistible mini donuts.
