Playland at the PNE

Playland has begun reopening on Saturdays and Sundays this June from 11 am – 5 pm. Plus, later in the summer, it will expand to more open days and nights.

However, booking in advance will be important as the park will be operating at a reduced capacity in order to continue practicing social distancing.

Playland at the PNE will also be “cashless”, so be prepared to pay with tap-enabled cards, or Google and Apple pay.

Wings and Wizards at BC Place

A new magic-inspired exhibit is coming to BC Place Stadium this summer as well. Starting in June and going to September this interactive exhibit, Wings and Wizards, will feature a Wizarding Academy paired with technology, story-telling, and much more.

Da Vinci Art Experience

Opening June 29th, 2021, the Da Vinci Art Experience at Tsawwassen Mills will feature recreations of Leonardo’s greatest inventions and incredible machines. This immersive journey of the senses will blend virtual reality with Da Vinci’s genius so you can experience his workshop right here in Canada.
