48 more days till Christmas! For the past 10 years, in order to celebrate this festive season, Hyde Park has hosted Winter Wonderland. Once again, it returns for 6 weeks, from November 17, 2017 to January 1, 2018. Every year around this time, Hyde Park is transformed into a wondrous wonderland of winter festivities, ie winter markets, rides, ice skating, food, entertainment galore.
“Things to do” at Winter Wonderland can be split up into 4 main categories; Rides and Games, Christmas Market, Santa Land and Food and Drink. Within each category, there are a number of activities to do.
We get a real treat this year. We get to have the choice of over 100 rides. From roller coasters i.e Wilde Maus XXL, to rides that spin i.e Air or to rides that drop i.e The Hangover that makes you feel that extra gravitational force, there’s something there for all you thrill seekers. If you’re more interested in fun houses and games, there’s the traditional funfair or a games section for you to test your skills!
At some point, we’ve all been intrigued about Santa Clause and his workshop where he built toys in the North Pole. At Winter Wonderland, we get to explore the land of Santa, meet his elves, see his “workshop” where all our Christmas toys were made and even take a ride on the Santa Express! Be sure to get a pic with Santa!
One of the best things about the holiday is Christmas shopping. Being able to choose and buy something for a loved one gives us a sense of happiness. At Winter Wonderland, there are over 200 Bavarian style wooden chalets where you’ll have the option of a wide range of gift ideas. Be sure to take a small portion of your time to enjoy a leisurely stroll at the Christmas Markets!
Christmas is coming together with family and enjoying a nice, filling feast! At Winter Wonderland, that aspect is emphasized and celebrated through the huge variety of food and drink. From toasting marshmallows at The Fire Pit, to having a rustic sit down meal at The Bavarian Village or to having a drink at Bar Ice and many more, there’s something for everyone!
