West Wulf attended just as the gates opened to get a glimpse of what local people would be enjoying in the run up to Christmas. The idea of Wolverhampton Councillor, Malcolm Gwinnett, who has teamed up with the Harry Jones Fun Fair, Winter Wonderland has a mini Christmas market, fun fair with carousel, rides including a big wheel and children’s mini rollercoaster, a ‘roller rink’ (free this week) and a walk through experience where children can see their favourite Christmas & Frozen characters and meet Santa Claus.A section of the Christmas walk through experience
The event runs from today (Wednesday 16th December) until Sunday 27th December, with adult entry at £2 and children’s entry at £5 – a family ticket (for two adults and two children) can be purchased for £12. Children’s admission also gets them a present from Santa, a Christmas hat and a mince pie each.Christmas trees are located throughout Winter Wonderland, with the big wheel proving a hit
Even the walk up to the front gates is pleasant, with Christmas trees and lights leading the way.Trees and lights show the way from the south entrance of West Park A selection of fairground rides
