A sure sign that spring is here and summer is right around the corner, Playland at the PNE will open its gates for another fun-filled season starting at 10:00am on Saturday, April 28th.

The beloved amusement park has something to offer guests of all ages. Thrill-seekers will love the hair-raising rides including Crazy Beach Party, the wet’n’wild Flume and the iconic 1958 Wooden Roller Coaster. Younger park guests can also experience rides such as the Wave Swinger, the Scooters and a variety of rides offered in Kids Playce.

Playland’s ATMOSFEAR, the tallest ride at the park and the second tallest ride in Canada, returns for its second year. ATMOSFEAR takes riders on a 360-degree journey, while travelling 70km/hr at 218 feet high and offers unparalleled view of the entire city!

Additional fun can be found at the Midway, the Climbing Wall, Pacific Adventure Golf, the Glass House and the Haunted Mansion. (Additional charges apply for the Haunted Mansion and Pacific Adventure Golf)
