I spent over £200 at Winter Wonderland – people say we were ripped off but I think it was absolutely worth it | The Sun

A WOMAN spent over £200 at Winter Wonderland and branded it "absolutely" worth it.

The single mum, who goes by the name Chan, posted a video on TikTok documenting her trip to the festive market in London.

Claiming to have spent hundreds of pounds on the afternoon out, she listed details of her spending.

She happily paid £7 for a hot chocolate and £8 for a single hot dog – but admitted she'd "had better".

And after spending £16 each to enter the ice bar, she only stayed for a measly 10 minutes.

In terms of rides, Chan went on the big wheel – which charged her £10 each – and ice skating for a steep £15.50.

Despite being the 15th year of festive fun at Hyde Park, many have dubbed it a rip off vowing never to go.

Amid the cost of living crisis many slammed the once reasonably-priced family day out as "expensive and overpriced".

One user commented under the video: "With a cost of living crisis, those prices are extortionate and unfair on customers.

"Nobody should be spending that much for food and drinks."

Meanwhile another said: "I'm sorry £8 hot dog, £7 hot chocolate!"

Another added: "People get ripped off so bad."

A man simply joked: "Could have gone to Disneyland Paris for that."

It comes after The Sun Online visited the market where two small bags of pick 'n' mix cost nearly £20, candy floss was £8 and a potato on a stick was £7.

The day would now cost parents around £40 to eat before you even have a drink or go on the rides.

One woman named Winnie was tucking into a hot dog covered in onions and sauce in the Bavarian Village.

She said: "It was expensive, it was £9.50.

"It's a special [and] it's delicious but a little bit too expensive."

Winnie added she wasn't happy to pay that price but at an event like Winter Wonderland "you don't really have a choice".

A breakdown of everything she spent:

  • Hot chocolate – £7
  • Hot dog – £8
  • Ice bar – £16 each
  • Giant wheel – £10 each plus £10 fast track
  • Ice skating – £15.50 each plus £2 charge for bags
