Winter Wonderland is back for its second year at the Norfolk Showground, on the outskirts of the city, and it will be open from Friday, November 17 2023 until Wednesday, January 3 2024.
During term time, it will be open from 4pm to 9pm Monday to Thursday and 4pm to 10pm on Fridays, 11am to 10pm on Saturdays and 11am to 8pm or 9pm on Sundays.
There is something for all ages at Winter Wonderland and there will be lots of fairground attractions and rides, including dodgems, the Sky Swing and a giant observation wheel. Other highlights include a real ice rink, Santa’s Grotto and, new for 2023, a real Christmas tree maze. A fireworks display is also planned for Saturday, November 18.
Ice skating costs from £9.50 for ages 12 and under and from £13.50 for ages 13+ – sessions last an hour and include skate hire. Wheelchairs are allowed on the ice and there are ramps both in and out of the skating marquee and on and off the rink.
Entry tickets allow an all day stay, we advise wrapping up with warm layered outdoor clothing, where possible wear non slip flat shoes or boots. The Santa’s Grotto includes a gift for every child and it costs £10.50, with entry for two accompanying adults.
