1. Adventures in Happyland

For this summer only, Playland and BCAA are taking you on a magical journey…. Get sucked down the rabbit hole into a storybook world where you’ll encounter enchanted creatures, explore a neon forest, be invited for tea, take some selfies, and ultimately escape the labyrinth.

The Adventures in Happyland exhibit is included with Playland passes. As safety is their top priority, masks are strongly recommended while enjoying this walk-through experience.

2. Sweet Escape Mini Golf

Grab your putter and make your way through this newly themed mini-golf course. Cross over bridges, pass a water feature, and go through the Candy Cane Forest to conquer every challenge along the course. Try to level up your game by putting backward, on one leg, or with your eyes closed! With giant lollipops, candies, and pieces of cake, you’ll be craving a sweet treat by the 18th hole.
