This giant indoor carnival returns to Vancouver for Spring Break 2018


An indoor amusement park in the heart of Vancouver sounds pretty dreamy…and it’s actually happening. PlayDome, Western Canada’s largest indoor carnival, will return to BC Place for six days, giving Vancouverites something fun to do during Spring Break.

PlayDome will feature over 45 rides and attractions, all tucked under the dome of BC Place, which means this is fun rain or shine. The event will of course also feature carnival games, and plenty of your favourite carnival eats (hello, mini donuts!).

Taking place Wednesday, March 28 through to Monday, April 2, this family-focused event is a great way to enjoy a taste of summer before spring even has a chance to settle in.

Online pre-sale passes will help you save a few bucks on each ticket. Kids under 2 are free, but are not allowed on rides. Adults wishing to accompany kids, but not hop on most rides, can purchase a limited “guest” past.
