Playland welcomes new ride additions – opening May 6! #Events

Playland The Beast 2017

It may not feel like it yet, it’s been a little damp and chilly, but summer is just around the corner, and one of the best parts of the summer is Playland! You don’t have to wait until summer actually arrives though; they’re opening in just one week! With some brand new things happening for 2017, plus all your old favourites, Playland is an ideal destination for some thrilling fun and entertainment.

Three brand new family rides are debuting this year and they promise to thrill, whirl and wow even the youngest riders. Bug Whirled, Flutterbye and Dizzy Drop join other family favourites like the Kettle Creek Mine Coaster, giving littles three more reasons to ride “Just one more time!”

Playland 2017 Season

Playland 2017 Season

New rides isn’t the only thing 2017 has in store for our favourite amusement park. There’s a brand new game on the midway and a couple new tasty booths! Beaver Tails will be serving up not only beaver tails, but also Canadian classics like poutine, and Gone Fishing has all your fish & chips, fish tacos and more, all Ocean Wise of course!

And that’s not all…

Every Friday during the month of July, Playland will be hosting a series of 19+ adult evenings, giving you a reason to grab a sitter, leave the kids at home, and ride the wooden roller coaster as much as you want!

It all starts at 10:00am Saturday May 6th, and passes are available online now!
