Here’s what you need to know about Playland Nights

It’s time to party the night away at Playland.

Friday nights are about going out, having a few drinks, and catching up with friends. Luckily, Playland Nights can tick all those checkboxes and add in the exhilarating rides too. Whether this is your first time experiencing Playland Nights or you’ve been a fan for three years, here’s what you need to know (and won’t want to miss):

  1. The Rides

We kicked out the kids but left the rides. Starting at 7pm every Friday night in July, Playland is open to adults only! This year, we are featuring the all-new Sea to Sky Swinger – perfectly designed to showcase the best of Vancouver’s landscape with its glittering lights at night. Your Playland Nights ticket gives you access to the park’s favourite rides, but if you’re looking to skip the line, you’re in luck! The Wonderlust VIP pass lets you do just that! It also gives you access to a VIP bar and rapid access to eight of our most popular rides.

  1. The Drinks

During Playland Nights, the grounds are fully licensed. This means you get to enjoy your favourite beverage (adult or not) throughout the park while checking out all the entertainment we have to offer. We have the craft beer fans and oenophiles covered. And if you’re looking for other exciting options – this year’s cocktails are both tasty and picture-worthy. Try the all-new Playland-inspired Dry Ice cocktail, the Tipsy Unicorn, and Tito’s handmade vodka drink – a combination of Tito’s Very Berry lemonade, Jalapeno lemonade and Canadian Mule. Let’s cheers to that!

  1. The Entertainment

There won’t be a lack of entertainment with the drums, samba, burlesque show and more! When it’s time to get the party started, we have Drum N Dirty with upbeat remixed party music. Wes Barker, the Stunt Magician, will also join the party and bring his famous magic shows and illusions as seen on America’s Got Talent. Get ready to be a part of this incredible entertainment roster that will rival even the best Friday night club scene!

  1. The Food

Playland is where it’s at with all the delicious finger foods and festival favourites. We have all the mini donuts and hot dogs ready when you are! Did we mention we have totchos? Yeah, that’s right. That’s tater tots with taco toppings.

  1. The (VIP) Experience

All new this year! The Wonderlust VIP Experience brings you on an exclusive magical journey, with different theme nights to choose from. Dress up to the themes and enjoy the exclusivities of a true VIP – including a secret VIP homebase lounge and park-wide riddles to be a part of. Psst, it’s like your own budge pass!

 

Playland Nights is where the party is at this Friday, and every Friday in July. It’s a classic summer night event that you won’t want to miss. So grab your friends and cheers to the drinks, ‘cause we’re about to party the night away.
