    I really hope Munich Looping returns to the event this year; there was a rumour that it was only a 3 year deal, but I would quite like to visit Winter Wonderland one year and ride it, even if only for its historical significance!

    I would guess that it is, as they are using the image of it in the artwork advertising the event.

    Also if you click on rides it takes you to a page where it says coasters returning for 2019 and Munich looping is on there :)

    I see the ice show this year is Paddington, actually the same show as EP as it mentions EP on the website.

    Its probably going to have to be the 14th-15th. I’m assuming a Sunday would be slightly better? I’ll make sure to go in early.

    Not too bothered about queues, more about masses of people and not being able to move

    No Circus Circus it seems

    And once again kids, remember Olympia Looping is the same price as a pint and a sausage - choose wisely.

    @Lneeno

    As long as you get there early enough you'll be fine. After 6pm will most likely be one in one out on that Saturday, it's carnage.

    Maybe I’ll try the Sunday then, we’d like to experience it at night but I can’t be doing with it if it’s completely rammed

    Wrap up warm. Whilst the view from the top of Hangover is stunning the chill from the wind at night is horiffic.

    57 rides and attractions - down from 66 according to last year's map. No Alpen Hotel either!

    Been shipped off to a desert somewhere I think, will likely never be seen again in these parts.

    Doubt I will ever visit this event being from the North. When you factor in the train cost, hotel and cost per attraction......I'd be better off flying out to a proper theme park abroad to experience their xmas offering.

    We complain that we live in Rip Off Britain but then thousands flock to these events and pay WAY over the top prices for food, drink and of course the rides. This is why we get ripped off guys. ;)

    If I wanted to do say 8/9 rides and grab some food and beers you're looking at £100 just on the day. It's obscene. I can fly to Germany and go to Phansialand for a few days for what it would cost me for my trip to London.
