PlayDome returns for Spring Break 2018 {Events}

PlayDome
Spring break is less than two weeks away! Normally I’m pretty chill about this and look forward to sleeping in with the kids, tossing ideas around with lots of time to check them off. But not this year. I started back to work recently and suddenly I need day camps on holidays, daycare for Pro D days, and to plan things way in advance in order to book time off of work. So this year, we took stock of some of our must dos and prioritized activities. At the top of everyone’s list was our family spring break fave: PlayDome at BC Place!

The perfect destination on a rainy day or to chase the boredom away, PlayDome is Western Canada’s largest indoor carnival packed with over 45 different rides and attractions, prizes to be won and loads of delicious fair food options to try. But it’s only here for six days, so be sure to pencil it in!

PlayDome is where the action is every day from March 28th until Monday April 2nd and there are rides for nearly every age and stage making it a great family treat. With children under 2 admitted for free and Spectator Guest Passes available for adults accompanying small children on a limited number of rides, PlayDome at BC Place makes it easier for young families to attend and enjoy themselves without breaking the bank, and if you buy your tickets online you’ll save even more money! Which will probably go towards mini donuts if you’re anything like us!

  1. Wow and wow again. PlayDome is absolutely massive. When you say it’s back again, do you just mean it’s reopened or that all this gets built and moved around (like a circus)?
