Tour BC Place Stadium - Vancouver
Activity: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.
Details:Call B.C. Place Tours (604) 661-7362 for more information. B.C. Place is located in downtown Vancouver at 777 Pacific Blvd. Website: www.bcplacestadium.com

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.
