Playland Debuts New 'Beast' Ride (VIDEO)


Sweet, sweet summer is on its way, and that means Playland at the Pacific National Exhibition (PNE) is opening its gates once again.

The Vancouver amusement park has added a new attraction to its repertoire, fittingly named "The Beast."

The pendulum ride swings people over 38 metres (125 feet) in the air at 90 km/h. On top of that, the seats spin riders in circles while they're flying.

Playland says that for the first time in North America, riders can choose to face inward or outward — or just go again and do both, if they have the stomach for it.

Here's a sneak peek of the ride (watch above), in case you want to suss things out before losing your lunch riding it yourself.

Playland opens on Saturday, May 16.
