VANCOUVER (NEWS 1130) – Get ready to be scrambled!

Playland is getting set to reopen its doors and welcome masked-up guests to its colourful attractions.

This season will offer an expanded selection of rides, including Enterprise, Scrambler, and Hell’s Gate – that’s enough to make your stomach do a flip!

The beloved Pirate Ship will also be in full swing, and there are plenty of options for smaller kiddos too, including Bug Whirled, Honeybee Express, and Flutterbye.

Tickets are now on sale for visits on Saturday and Sunday throughout May, and they are limited to comply with health measures set out by the province.

According to the Playland website, there will be an emphasis on prioritizing safety for guests, and the event will be “operating with significantly reduced capacities, physical distancing, enhanced cleaning procedures.”

And, just as last year, “masks will be required on rides and in all queue lines,” which will be mandatory for anyone over the age of two.

A new guideline has also been added to comply with public health orders, urging guests not to travel outside of their local health authority.

As for dining options, hungry guests will still be able to enjoy burgers, mini donuts, and cotton candy on-site, but the park has adapted to be entirely cashless to reduce the spread of the virus.

The park’s tagline amid the pandemic has been “Safe, Clean Fun.”
