Rainy Spring Break? Come to Playdome!

After a long, cold, and snowier-than-usual winter here on the west coast, I was hoping for a nice, warm spring break. Well, we know how that turned out. Just a few days left of our school break, but we've got something really fun to do today: Playdome!

Playdome is Western Canada’s largest indoor carnival, happening at BC Place from Wednesday, March 22 – Sunday, March 26, 2017. PlayDome features more than 45 rides and attractions, plus the usual guilty pleasure carnival snacks like mini doughnuts and cotton candy, plus games, all in one big warm, dry stadium.

I started going to Playdome with my students years ago when I taught ESL, and I've continued the tradition with my own kids in the last few years. We're pretty excited this year because both kids are now old enough and even three-year-old B is tall enough to go on many of the rides! (Check out the height restrictions for each ride here) No matter what the ages of your kids, if they like carnival rides, there's something for just about everybody at Playdome.

Playdome is open every day from 10:30am-9:00pm daily, except til 6:00pm on Sunday. Tickets are available at the door and online: $29 for a single-day Dome Pass; $49 for the 5-day Ultimate Pass, $8 for a Guest Pass (for parents or caregivers who don't want to go on the rides). Children under 2 years old admitted free (for safety reasons, they are not permitted to ride).

Find more information at or phone 604-669-2300.
