While there’s no doubt that Playland is fun during the day, it’s hard to deny that it doesn’t come with its drawbacks.
The long lines at every attraction are only made worse by the sweltering hot sun.
So why not leave afternoons at Playland to the kids and enjoy the park when the sun goes down.
With summer well underway, there’s less than one month left for the Playland Nights – an adults-only event that runs from 7 pm to midnight every Friday.
Each weekend includes multiple bars, several DJs, live, performances, and VIP experiences tailored to a 19+ crowd.
A new addition for this year’s events, attendees have the chance to try out a brand-new Virtual Reality racing experience, a burlesque show featuring nostalgic carnival glamour, and atmospheric entertainment around the park.
VIP tickets can also be purchased to provide exclusive benefits and an elevated experience to visitors.
VIP ticket holders will be able to skip the line at some of Playland’s most popular rides including the Wave Swinger, the Pirate Ship, and The Beast. They will also be able to receive expedited gate entry when entering the park and have access to a VIP Bar.
Tickets for Playland Nights are available online.
