There are about fifteen rides that kids 36" & taller can go on. Some require an adult to ride too, some the kids can go on their own, & some have a maximum height limit of 42". There are plenty of spinning, dropping, flinging & scrambling rides for the bigger kids & adults too. I'd honestly say it's great for kids aged three to teens.
PlayDome runs for a few more days--until March 23rd--so there's still time to go if you haven't yet. PlayDome at BC Place is open 10:30am-9pm daily March 15 to 22, then 10:30am-6pm Sunday, March 23rd. All-day ride passes are $29, $6 for guests. See bcplace.com/playdome for more info.
Here are a few insider tips:
- You can save $10 off the all day ride pass if you're a BCAA member
- Costco is a block away from BC Place & has a $1.50 hot dog & drink special (you don't need a membership to access their concession)
- If your child is just under or just over the height limits, the ride operators are a bit flexible...
- There is a quiet area of seating & some food vendors near the washrooms past the carousel--great for breastfeeding or just taking a break from the hubbub
|The Chopper ride is always a hit with little kids|
|We ran into some friends & L got to ride with A & Q on 'Hog Wild'|
|I went in the Helicopter ride with L & we both loved it|
|L liked the carousel a lot too|
|Spokespapa & baby B in front of German Stereotype Haus|
|L liked them so much he rode the bumper cars twice: once with each parent|
|Spokespapa is strapped into the orange blur on the right there...|
|Bulgy the whale? More like Bulgy the fish, but whatever... L rode this twice too|
|L's first rollercoaster ride was awesome for the first few circuits, then he cried & got off early|
|Our friend A watched baby B so we could ride the ferris wheel|
Here's the video of our ferris wheel experience. I loved it, as did three-year-old L, but O is a bit afraid of heights, so his vertigo was kicking in (as you can hear)...
