Winter Wonderland activities

Marvel at the Magical Ice Kingdom, a frost-covered land of magic and wonder, created from over 500 tonnes of beautifully sculptured ice and snow. Create your very own ice sculpture at the Ice Sculpting workshops. See London’s breath-taking skyline from the 70 metre Giant Wheel or brave the giant loops of several rollercoasters at the fairground. Stroll through the traditional Christmas market with over 100 charming chalets or the Bavarian village with its cosy bars, cafes and restaurants.
Activities for the whole family!
Whether it is the traditional fairground for younger children or the hair-raising Winter Wonderland roller coasters, there are plenty of rides to choose from, including a real ice slide!
There is more family-friendly fun at Zippos Christmas Circus. Expect jaw-dropping aerial and acrobatic, plus their now famous and adorable giant Christmas inflatable fur Bears! Of course, no visit would be complete without a visit to Santa’s Grotto in Santaland.
