There are over 30 rides and attractions to enjoy at Vancouver’s favourite amusement park, ranging from family fun rides to extreme, heart-racing attractions.

Prepare yourself for the Skybender, Hell’s Gate, and of course, The Beast — the massive pendulum that stands 12 storeys tall and swings at speeds of 90 km/h.

The amusement park also has a variety of exciting activities to enjoy during your visit, including mini golf and a climbing wall. And you can try to win a prize in one of the midway games.

You’ll be working up an appetite with all there is to see and do at Playland this summer, so it’s a good thing that the park is serving up new ice cream flavours and noodle bar items this year. Of course, you can’t forget about classic features like hot dogs and iced mini donuts.
