UPDATE: Playland was originally scheduled to open on Saturday, May 1st with a safety plan supported by Vancouver Coastal Health (VCH).

However, due to rising concerns about attracting out-of-town visitors during BC’s current travel restrictions between three regional zones, the Provincial Health Office has instructed the amusement park to postpone its season debut until after the May long weekend to support the provincial circuit breaker.

This story will be updated with with new dates and information as they become available.

Original story below.

With many things being closed, Playland has announced some good news. The beloved amusement park plans to reopen for weekends this May.

Back are some of the favourite attractions that park goers have missed such as the games, rides, attractions and the food.


Playland Opening Details

The amusement park will be open Saturdays and Sundays from 11am-5pm throughout May. The operating dates, however, will expand to more days and nights when the summer arrives.

Because the park will be operating at a reduced capacity in order to practice social distancing and complying with health protocols, tickets will be limited and people are encouraged to reserve them online.

They will also be “cashless”, so be prepared to pay with Google/Apple pay or tabbing enabled cards.

Enjoy Rides Safely

Ride passes will be available as the season will be offering all of the fan favourites, including the Enterprise, Scrambler and Hell’s Gate.

Playland is stating that guests should comply with public health orders, and not travel outside of their local health authority, and stick to their guidelines if attending the attraction.

You can reserve your tickets online beginning April 20.
