Ever wonder how we spend our ‘down time’?

It’s already busy behind the scenes here at Playland as we’re setting up for an epic 2015 season. We’ve been tirelessly working over the past few months on a lot changes for the park, with a lot of work still ahead, as opening day on May 16 quickly approaches. Here’s a glimpse into a few of  the larger projects currently underway.

After over 30 years in the same location, Music Express will be moving to a different spot within Playland and will have an unexpected old friend as a neighbour!

We weren’t ready to part with the party, so we’ve played a game of musical rides, and found a new home within Playland for Crazy Beach Party.

Special delivery all the way from Germany. We'll be busy getting this installed on Crazy Beach Party once it's settled in its new home in Playland.

The hole was dug, the concrete poured and now we're waiting for The Beast to arrive.

PNE Prize Home Galore!

We had such an exciting day at the PNE Prize Home this morning! Media from across the Lower Mainland toured the Grand Prize house getting a sneak peak at what went into this year’s gorgeous layout and design! Jillian Harris from LOVE IT or LIST IT VANCOUVER was on site to answer all questions and talk more about her design inspiration. Jillian has outdone herself this time around, and created a space that is both fun and fresh, but also rustic and welcoming!

Appearing this morning on QMFM, Jillian talked about how this year’s Prize Home is her favourite to date- and ours too! You can listen to her full interview here! Here’s a little snippet from her interview with Nat and Drew:

“This is my favourite house so far. You can always judge how good the PNE Prize Home is by the reaction of the PNE staff themselves who see it for the first time, and say “this is my favourite!” As a designer, when everybody is on the same page and everyone says it’s their favourite, that’s when you know!”

This year’s Prize House breathes such a fresh and airy style, while still having an eclectic touch: one of the many reasons this home on Kelowna’s beautiful Kirschner Mountain is ideal for any lifestyle. Have you checked out her design for the PNE Prize Home? If you haven’t already, you have to see what she put together this year!

FRIGHT NIGHTS 2014

We're not willing to risk losing our title of Western Canada's Scariest Haunt. So that in mind, we'll have some scream-worthy news to share on the fright front later this year.
