So any word on new attractions in the pipeline? Or is everything on hold while we await approval for the expansion?

^ Nothing in the news in regards to the park. Playland is still scheduled to open for it's season,
on Saturday, May 4th. And that's all I know or have read, for now.

In the meantime you can always check the site itself for any news, etc. http://www.pne.ca :)

RANT EDIT: I just rechecked the site, and NOW find out, they are going to start charging Seniors (over 65) for daily entry ($19)! :sad: And this was posted after they had run their "Season Pass Sale" late last year and into January. Grrrrr. It works out to just five visits to pay for the thing ($95) but still, I would have liked to save a few dollars beforehand.
Hmm. I know I didn't have anything to do with this, but the timing sucks big time, IMhO :angry:
(Well, at least I got in all last season with free admission.)

Just bought and printed up, my 2019 Playland Season Pass. I'm still HMMMMPHing a bit about it, and wish I had known before the Holiday Season, to save some $$$ on it. Oh well. Five visits (at the new "Senior Single Day" cost - $19.95) and it's all paid for. And I did get a full season FREE last year, when I just turned 65. Still. Makes me wonder why suddenly, after all these years, they now tacked on a charge for us coaster loving seniors.

Whatever. I'm set for the year. :airtime: www.pne.ca

The wave swinger is gone from the park and it looks like they're doing some sort of foundation. Maybe a new ride?

^ Oooh, great Playland News! Thanks for posting your photos!
I thought of getting over there before the season started.
And I might eventually, now that you posted these shots. :wink:

But - I enjoyed the wave swinger. :( A big rush and great speed for it, too.

Oh well. Change is hap - hap - hap - happening at Playland! :smile:
Or are they putting Wave Swinger in a more permanent foundation, lol?

Actually, on closer look, it looks like all they've done, is remove the WS.
They could be widening the walkway, by just removing the ride, itself.

Eep. :?r

EDIT: I just checked the list (w/thumbnail-pix) of all the rides in Playland.
And the Wave Swinger has definitely been removed from it. Hmmm.

So apparently both the wave swinger and corkscrew is gone from the Playland website.

^ :omg: Ho-Lee Crap! I was busy looking for Wave Swinger in the list,
but I didn't look for anything else missing, there! Good "non-find", heh.

My partner has a Rock & Gem Show at the community centre near Playland, this weekend.
So I might hitch a ride with him to the area, and get my own photos there...

And then bus home via Starbucks. :smile:

EDIT: I also checked the current online map they have of the park,
and Wave Swinger and Corkscrew are still there on it.

For what it's worth, in one of those 2 photos you (Kamui) posted,
it clearly shows that the Corkscrew has not been dismantled..... yet. :?r

The last time i went to playland I noticed that all the trains for corkscrew were gone, but I'm not sure if they had put away or something else.
