The 60,000-seat BC Place Stadium, featuring 22 miles (35 km) of 5.25-inch-diameter (12.7 cm) cables, is the world’s largest cable-supported retractable roof. A web of massive steel cables attached to a central node serves to open and close the roof.  It takes between 15 and 20 minutes to open or close the roof.
