Tour BC Place Stadium - Vancouver

by Mom


Did you know B.C. Place Stadium is the biggest air-supported domed stadium in the world?  The stadium holds more than 60,000 people, and is the home of The B.C. Lions CFL football team.  As well, many of the big-name concerts coming to Vancouver happen at B.C. Place.  Take a tour of B.C. Place Stadium and get a behind-the-scenes look at the playing field, locker rooms, and lounges.  You definitely won't get these opportunities during a game! 

Age group:

I can see our seven year-old son, who wants to become a football player, getting a kick out of this tour.  However, our four year-old daughter who hasn't developed an interest in sports is another matter. 

Expense rating:

The cost of this tour is relatively inexpensive when you compare it to the cost of a game.  Please check the website below for current rates.

Educational highlights:

The stadium is an engineering marvel.  They say the Teflon roof is only 1/30 inch thick but stronger than steel. 

Fun for the adult?:

It's a golden opportunity to see the stadium without a mob of people being there.  I also wondered what it would be like to go inside a locker room.
