Christmas is just a few weeks away, and we’re starting to feel Christmassy, are you? Lots of people are staying in the hotel on festive shopping breaks, and all the families are raving about the Waterfront Wonderland. So exactly what’s happening in this festive part of the city?
From November 14th 2014 to January 4th 2015, Swansea’s award winning Christmas attraction has returned for yet another annual festive celebration. Experience all of the magic of Christmas in one place, right in the heart of Swansea city.
The Waterfront Wonderland’s main attraction is the two fantastically popular outdoor ice rinks. A small children’s rink for tiny tots, and a larger rink, sponsored by Admiral, for family fun for all ages. Tickets can be purchased from the Skate House by the entrance or head down to the Swansea Tourist Information Centre.
And once you’ve hung up your skates and got back onto terra firma, who better to go and visit than Santa in his Grotto surrounded by elves.
Fancy a bite to eat, then pop into the festive indoor café. But don’t eat too much or you may feel a little queasy when you jump on the rides in the funfair.
Every year Swansea’s Waterfront Wonderland has some great rides and this year is no different with a carousel, snow storm ride and funfair, as well as the regular children’s rides, simulator and game stalls. And there’s a new addition to the fair – the Air Maxx! An exhilarating spinning ride that takes you a full 360 degrees in the air; are you tall (and brave) enough to have a go?
Swansea’s Waterfront Wonderland is open every day over the festive season, apart from Christmas Day, so there is no excuse not to visit. And at just a 10 minute short stroll from the Dragon Hotel it is the perfect activity if you are looking for things to do nearby in Swansea.
