München Looping and the Giant Wheel

Since its inauguration in 2007, Winter Wonderland has been bringing festive cheer to the heart of the capital city annually over the winter months and has grown into one of the largest Christmas events in the world.

Between November and January over three million visitors come to Hyde Park to experience the rides, food, market stalls and other entertainment.

The event brings some of the biggest and best rides over from Europe, with the giant Olympia Looping rollercoaster (renamed München Looping while in London due to Olympic Games licensing restrictions) being one of the headline attractions, although it is just one of several rollercoasters to make the trip across the channel. Also regularly attending are Max Edberhard’s Wild Maus XXL, the suspended Euro Coaster, and the indoor Ice Mountain wild mouse.

Other major rides include the remarkable Dr Archibald: Master of Time VR dark ride, the 70 metre high North Pole starflyer, and a new 70m tall giant wheel for the 2019 edition of the fair.

Winter Wonderland is more than just a fun fair: from its earliest years it has featured a large Christmas market, an ice rink around Hyde Park’s historic band stand, and countless food stalls selling festive treats. The event has become a mainstay of London’s Yuletide Nightlife, with giant German style beer halls in the Bavarian Village, a carousel bar, a comedy club and evening shows.
