.... and £6 for the big rides! :ninja:

That is unacceptable. Greedy b'stards, sure they'd make more by charging less and filling them up instead.

Not really a problem. Last Sunday at 4 or 5ish, all the big rides had some sort of queue (apart from Ski Party, but that's because it looks terrible).

Maybe fools are paying it but for me £6 a ride is a problem. Won't be going to get ripped off.

Doubt it. I imagine rent of that site is incredibly expensive.However, it'll probably be their most profitable site of the year anyhow. And ultimately, that's fair enough. People are seemingly willing to spend £6.

Wilde Maus XXL is confirmed as attending Winter Wonderland 2012/2013! This extended Mack Wild Mouse features a fun-house like queue area, has 2 huge drops and is just generally the best looking travelling Wild Mouse in existence! ;) Looks great!

Guys also...

How much was ski jet?

And the suspended swinging coaster?

NEW THIS YEAR:

STAR-FLYER

WILD MAUS XXL

NEW COASTER

DOUBLE DECKER CAROUSEL!

There is a new coaster...

I know because on the website http://www.hydeparkwinterwonderland.com/attractions/rides it says we will see no less than THREE ROLLERCOASTERS this year!

Could we get a looping coaster? I'd like to know your thoughts... We may get more than three coasters.. This is advertised as coaster crazy!

Ohhh, I've not been on a ski jump for years, and maus XXL looks great. Not sure of the pricing but I'm always getting sent substantial discounts for the event from American Express, so if family or friends have a card it's worth asking them to take a look for you.

I believe we will be seing Pinfari's London City Coaster, formerly Grizzly Bear at [email protected] Valley.

As for Wilde Maus XXL it is apparently parked outside Thorpe Parks. (thanks to Merlin Mania for the pic)

Lots of people are saying it isn't Maus XXL because of the green supports instead of yellow that it had when it debuted in geramny but green suits the Christmas theme of the even. Plus, if you compare it to the picture of Wilde Maus XXL packed up on lorries in germany, the trailers look very similar.

As for the pricing, you pay £1 for a token. The large rides tend to be 4-6 tokens (depending if your an adult or child (12 or under)). The rides are pretty decent and well worth a visit but it does get very busy due to the cramped layout of it but apparently that is also being adjusted for this year.

The rides are due to pull on to Hyde Park tomorrow, some will be later pulling on throughout the week.

Wilde Maus XXL, Christmas Coaster and 1 other coaster (most likely Euro Coaster) will be attending.

Danter's Air is returning.

Power Tower is returning.

Mellor's Giant Wheel is returning as well as their new 230ft Star Flyer which was recently set up in London and has been to Hull Fair since.

'Ski Jump' AKA 'Oblivion' (KMG Freak Out (16 riders)) is likely to be replaced with 'Showtime' which is a KMG Afterburner 24.

Currently unconfirmed but **rumoured only** that Buwalda's who own the inverted Euro Coaster may be bringing their new Mondial Turbine, instead of 'Blizzard' AKA 'Booster' attending.

Most of the less major rides such as the 'Deep Impact' Miami and Waltzer, Dodgems etc will all stay the same.

As far as I know the 'Ski Party' Fabbri Mega Dance was drafted in quickly last year as a last minute ride due to another different ride being unable to attend.

The best way to find out what's certainly there now is to just wait and see the pictures soon! I'm sure they'll confirm everything not long from now. :P

It's set to be the possibly the best Winter Wonderland yet with a new improved layout and what looks to be some changes in rides in favour of improved capacity.
