THIS magical winter attraction in London famed for its festive scenes at Christmas time is the perfect choice for people of all ages.
London’s Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park boasts adrenaline-fuelled rides, delicious street food, shopping stalls, bars, the infamous Giant Wheel and the UK’s largest outdoor ice rink.
Winter Wonderland‘s website promises a range of features, including “high adrenaline rides” and “family-friendly performances”.
There will also be “classic festive treats” and the “newest arrivals to London’s street food scene” as well as “cosy fire pit bars and mythical ice kingdoms”.
The website adds: “We guarantee there’s something for everyone. Make the most of your festive season in true Winter Wonderland style.”
It’s open from 10am until 10pm so you can enjoy festive days out with family as well as late-night drinks with friends until January 1st when it closes.
There are plenty of rollercoasters, fun and horror houses on offer for the thrillseekers – with the majority costing around £5.
Children rides, such as the Madhatter’s Tea Cup, the Austin Car Ride and the Christmas Carousel, are usually on the cheaper side.
Bosses wrote online: “No matter what your preference is, we have a ride for you. Whether you crave dramatic drops that boost your adrenaline, or smooth-sailing roller coasters.”
However, for those who aren’t keen on big rides, they can watch other people getting thrilled with the Cirque Berserk show Tornado.
It promises to be an “adrenaline-fuelled circus stunt” show from a troupe of daredevils.
Families are recommended to visit in the mornings when they can explore Winter Wonderland at a leisurely pace.
And when the evening comes around, the park is decorated by thousands of sparkling lights, with mulled wine, hot chocolate and steins of Bavarian beer on offer.
A ferris wheel and an ice slide are among the attraction’s most popular rides.
The Giant Wheel is the tallest transportable wheel in the world, allowing you to see London’s epic skyline from above.
It’s available at any time, from morning to night, allowing you to see London come alive in illumination from up above the treetops.
There’s also an ice rink for anyone wanting to try out some skating.
Visitors are able to skate across the 1,795 square metre rink as live acoustic music plays in the background.
The Winter Wonderland is also a major spot for celebrities, with Molly Mae and Tommy Fury spotted at the opening of the popular event with their daughter Bambi just days ago.
Victoria Beckham was also snapped getting into the festive spirit at the Winter Wonderland with her 12-year-old daughter Harper over the weekend.
