Winter Wonderland VIP opening

The opening of Winter Wonderland is one of my favourite parties of the year and I’m not alone, judging by the amount of celebs that showed up for it!

The Christmas spectacle of rides, skating, shopping and refreshment places is now open in London’s Hyde Park until 4 January and I think it’s as important to check it out as it is to make sure you’ve remembered to buy a turkey for Christmas lunch. Even if you’re not feeling Christmassy right now, a visit to Winter Wonderland will sort you out as I found out on the opening night.

There’s so much to do, I highly recommend planning your visit in advance or you could end up there for hours. The Live Like a VIP team definitely enjoyed the ice skating,

We also went on the waltzers twice. Scream if you wanna go faster!

The Haunted House has a lot of surprises. Be warned – there is something, or someone lurking, at every corner.

There are lots of rollercoasters, rides that spin you upside down and a big tower that lifts you up slowly and sends you plunging downwards. Eating beforehand is not advisable but the adrenalin may make you work up an appetite. Thankfully there’s something to suit all tastes from hog roasts to noodles. I went for a bratwurst with onions then I smothered it in ketchup and mustard once this photo was taken.

There’s mulled wine, there’s hot chocolate, there’s Bavarian beer in 2 pint jugs and there’s Jaegermeister – pretty much all the festive essentials! I recommend visiting the Bavarian great hall inside the Bavarian village to get inside some shelter for a bit. There’s also seating so you don’t have to eat / drink standing up.

Now let’s have a look at some of the celebs from the opening night so you can see just how VIP it is already:
