How much do tickets cost?
Anyone can come into the Winter Wonderland for free and go about as much as they want. The only tickets people need to buy are for the attractions and shows dotted around the park, and they vary depending on what you plan on doing.
What attractions are there are Winter Wonderland?
It’s claimed that there are over 100 different rides and games to try out while you’re there, but we haven’t tried counting them all before. There are four rollercoasters (which we think gives a good idea of just how big the park is), an 85-metre high drop tower, mechanical swings and even a VR ride called Dr Archibald.
You can also try your luck at dozens of different fairground style games and traditional rides like the carousel and helter-skelter.
What shows are there at Winter Wonderland?
When you see what they have in store for visitors, it makes your local Christmas market pale by comparison. Zippo’s Christmas Circus is always popular, while Cirque Berserk offers something exhilarating with performers carrying out death-defying stunts.
Kids can enjoy the fun of the Mr Men and Little Miss Show or Paddington on Ice, while select dates throughout December will see a small corner of the park become the Winter Wonderland Comedy Club.
