Winter Wonderland punters fume at being charged whopping £10 for hot dog

Revellers at London’s Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park have been left red-faced by extortionate prices for food.

In the middle of the cost of living crisis, the news has infuriated some, with punters being charged a whopping £10.50 for a hot dog and £7 for a spiralled potato.

Thousands are expected to pour into the attraction in the weeks running up to Christmas.

Elsewhere on the list of foods infuriating the masses, fish and chips are understood to be being charged for at £14 per plate, while candy floss is coming in at £8.

According to the Mirror, a fan said: “Getting tickets for Winter Wonderland for my mam and sister visiting at the end of the month and…what a ludicrously expensive ordeal.

“I'm amazed they're letting you breathe without having to buy a ticket.”

It was reported by the SunOnline that another said: “My friends want to go to Winter Wonderland and it is scary how expensive it’s gotten since I went in 2014, I don’t even want to go now”.

MyLondon recently sent out a reporter to the event to try and bag themselves a hot drink, sweet treat, souvenir, hot food and a ride for £20.

“I believe they are essential for a proper visit.

“That is a visit not including alcohol. If you're wanting to enjoy a drink or two then that's when you're going to really spend.

“The average pint this year is priced at £6 and mulled wine around £5.40, so if you're on a budget you're going to have to miss out elsewhere.

“For me, on my solo day time trip, hot food, an attraction and some sweet bits were essential – something to remember, things to fill up on and feel all wintery as well as something to actually have fun on.

“I didn't think this year it would be possible to enjoy a decent experience at Winter Wonderland for £20.

“Sure I've had to make a few exceptions – I would have loved a proper big bratwurst or to feel the adrenaline of a big roller coaster – but on a budget, it's a success.

“I honestly think Winter Wonderland is as expensive as you want it to be.

“You could go on a cheaper ride or game, or you could splash out and go ice skating and ride The Wheel and watch a show.

“You could snack on the Lidl pigs in blankets, or you could enjoy a feast in the Bavarian Village or just eat a big meal before you go.

“But the main thing is, it is possible to have a good time there for just £20 or less.”
