The rides are very fun and its nice to go slightly off season so it isn't as busy. The food is great too but expensive. Admission is also pricey.

Playland is part of the PNE (Pacific National Exhibition) fairgrounds in Vancouver and is BC's most famous amusement park. Playland features exhilarating rides and attractions, exciting midway games, mini-golf, a climbing wall, arcade and a variety of delicious food.
Playland offers over 30 rides and attractions, including three exciting roller coasters. One of the most loved and talked about attractions at Playland is the historic Wooden Roller Coaster. This spectacular coaster has been operating at the park since 1958 and is cited as a "Coaster Classic" by the American Coaster Enthusiasts organization, which is an honour shared by only 22 other wooden coasters in the world.
For the more adventurous visitors, there is the Corkscrew roller coaster which takes thrill-seekers upside down with a double helix inversion and the extreme swing ride Atmosfear, which takes you up 218 feet in the air while spinning 70km/hour. And new to Playland this year is The Beast, an extreme thrill ride that will have you screaming in terror before you even get strapped in! For those wanting a slower pace, there's a variety of rides including the Westcoast Wheel, a ferris wheel that gives you views of the entire city.
Unique to Playland is Kids Playce, an area designated for parents and families with children between the ages of 2-10. Kids Playce provides the perfect setting for families looking to spend some time together in a clean, safe and kid-friendly environment. In 2013, two new rides were added to Kids Playce: Teacups and Balloon Explorers. Playland is open from May to September.
