If you saw our last post, you know that Winter WonderFest is not to be missed this year. With the newly added attractions and the return of past favorites, it’s easy to spend the whole day inside this wonderland. If you’re trying to decide which attractions to hit up first, we’ve put together this little must-see list!
Before you enter Winter WonderFest, make a stop at Snowglobe Live! – located in the Family Pavilion. Now through January 12, you can take your picture inside of a human-sized snow globe! Strike your best pose, because this just might be your greatest holiday photo yet!
Once inside, there will be so much to see at Winter WonderFest at Navy Pier presented by Bank of America. Take some time to enjoy our giant decorated tree, snap some pictures, and visit with Santa! Both the jolly man himself and Mrs. Claus will be available to take Christmas requests now through December 24. Stop by between 11 a.m. – 4 p.m. on Mondays – Thursdays or 11 a.m. – 6 p.m. on Fridays – Sundays to tell the merry couple your Christmas wishes.
After chatting with Santa, you’ll want to make sure you take advantage of the indoor rides! There are rides for every level of daredevil! Take a spin on the Cliff Hanger and soar 40 feet in the air above the crowds. If that’s not your thing, you can take a spin in the Hot Cocoa Cups or ride on the Ferris wheel, from which you can see the whole fest at the top! Besides, when was the last time you were able to take a spin on an indoor Ferris wheel?
You can also embrace the sweet side of your creativity at the Pepsi Create-A-Cookie Cottage! Kids and adults can decorate a sugar cookie with frosting and sprinkles in any way they’d like and then enjoy the best part of cookie-making—eating the cookies! Cookies can be purchased at the cottage for $2.50.
There are so many other fun activities ready for you to experience, like the Snowy Summit Climbing Wall, the Too Cool Video Games, and the 38-foot tall Snowman Bouncer! To really know all that Winter WonderFest has to offer, you’ll just have to come on down and check it out! Purchase your activity wristbands today!
