Christmas in London Recap: Part 2

Hyde Park Winter Wonderland

Hyde Park Winter Wonderland is basically a massive amusement park that is somehow built just temporarily in Hyde Park. Rides, games, fattening foods, ice sculpture garden, fairly tacky Christmas market, ice skating rink, Father Christmas’ grotto. We took kids, so it was mostly kiddie carnival rides and liege waffles with Nutella and sprinkles on top. But I think it would be fun to get a babysitter one night and do a date night here next December. We could ride the rollercoasters, drink adult beverages in the ice bar, go ice skating, and just enjoy it like big kids! (For a price, of course. We looked at the cost of the biggest rollercoaster and it was something like £10 for one ride. My 15-second slide down the Helter-Skelter with E was £6 for the two of us, because of course they wouldn’t let her go alone so I had to pay too.)
