Playland in Vancouver, has just posted it's prices for all season passes, etc.

http://www.pne.ca/playland/index.html

The special price is good until Christmas Eve, but after the holidays,
some times they have offered the same prices for at least one month more.

And - New Bumper Cars next year!!!
And I do hope in a newly built building for them to go crazy in.
And if it's the same tired old broken down thing. <sighs> Whatever.

And final destination for the old bumper cars is...Miracle Strip at Pier Park in Panama City Beach, Florida.

I remember looking at the field of cars at Playland and wondering, "Wait...why is there a cat?"

The season's pass end date has been extended into mid-January.
From the "They do this every year and yet, I still buy it before Christmas" Dept...

The Season Pass deal is over, so good luck with the regular cost. :p

And ^^^ Where Is THE CAT??? I have tried and tried to find 'it',
but so far, no good. :sad: Is 'cat' a term for something else? ARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRgh!

(This feels so Charlie Brown.)

Beat me to it! I never got any personal pics of it, so I would still be second-guessing myself to this day if I didn't spot a random Facebook comment about it--he is a bit camouflaged there. :lol:

^^ and ^ Ok. Found 'it'. Now I know what you meant, lol.
I thought you meant an actual cat somewhere on the cars.
But the 'paws' clued me in, now.

Whew! I wasn't going crazy here. :wink:
(Well, not my usual crazy, heh.)

Went to the Opening Day of Playland's 2014 Season....

Yeah, well, it happened, I was there, and I got my rides on Coaster.

Not much really to tell. No welcoming speeches, no bands or cute girls (guys?) doing
cheerleader type welcoming spectacles. Not even their mascot showing up!.... they just....opened.

Got my season's pass, which true to form, "took some time", as somebody is always new at this,
and computer systems can get cranky at times..... I am only glad I was first in line for this time.

Here's some pix from Opening Day.....

Here's the entrance to the park. It was pretty overcast that day,
with chances of rain. Really not much of a crowd.
IMG_4372.JPG
But yes - that's the ONLY reason to come to Playland. To ride Coaster.
IMG_4374.JPG
The new attraction. Bumper cars with a fast car theme. Meh.
It's honestly a more blinged up version of the (darker) bumper cars here before.
IMG_4376.JPG
View of my park, from the SkyWheel.

Can't miss the Bumper Cars Bldg. now.
IMG_4384.JPG
Notice the amazingly HUGE CROWD that showed up today.
IMG_4385.JPG
Red train heading up the hill. It's there, under the flags over the middle of the lift hill... Yeah!
IMG_4387.JPG
AtmosFEAR is still a great addition to the park.
IMG_4388.JPG
Haunted Mansion walk-thru has new relatives, outside.
IMG_4390.JPG
Here's one of them. I like to think of this one as "carefree".

The other, a bit more intensely inviting. HAPPY OPENING DAY, PLAYLAND!
