Playland in Vancouver, Daily Operation in Summer?

Friday, January 10, 2003 8:51 AM
Oi, I was just curious if anyone knows what Playland's operating procedures have been in the past...are they daily in the summer months? (June and forward...)

I checked their web site, but they don't have 2003 dates/hours up yet, and they don't have the 2002 ones archived, so I have no clue, if someone could enlighten me I'd be eternally grateful :-)

I believe they are open daily (until they want to close, basically) from May through the PNE fair which is in late August. Make the trip. Coaster is GOD.

Thanks for the info, there's zero question I'm heading to Vancouver/Idaho this year, I just wanted to be sure the park was open daily before I booked my flight :-)

I'd considered CAC, but the June thing happens to work out well for my schedule, hence the early summer trip.

If I was going by myself I'd definitely make a point of doing the event, but I'm heading out with a friend and the point of the trip is only 50% coasters at most, so having a more free-form (and earlier in the year, since we're both relocating in August for university) schedule is better.

Well, e-mail me before you come out. I would love to meet, and show you what Coaster is all about.;)

When is CAC this year? Keith and I are *definitely* doing a trip out to the great northwest this summer (late July/early Aug is target date) and would LOVE to do this event. I just hope it's not at the month as I think that would be too late.

Joe, who also cannot wait for Coaster!

The PNE/Playland usually operates on roughly the following schedule.

Weekends only:11:00 AM to 7:00PM, April through June

Daily:11:00AM to 9:00PM, July to August

PNE Fair:11:00AM to 1:00 AM?,last week in August to first week in September

The park goes back to weekends only operations and hours after the fair is over for the remainder of the season, usually ending the first week in October.For more information on the PNE, go to www.pne.bc.ca.

Sorry I wasn't able to reply to this topic sooner.I haven't had much time to get on the computer lately.See you all at the PNE next season.

Update: the PNE/Playland will be open weekends only starting April 18,2003. The PNE fair will run from August 16th to September 1st.

Lets' save the Vancouver PNE Coaster before its'too late!
