I visited Winter Wonderland last Saturday with my family and as expected it was extremely busy and very impressive. I have three children who all wanted to go on the rides, they went on two rides each and I paid £23. We booked Zippo's circus in advance and my five year old was really excited. We had to queue to go in (no problem) except the lady on the food counter was extremely abrupt and quite rude about where you had to queue. Once inside it's a real squeeze and the seats are very small. The show lasted 45 minutes and it was actually very embarrassing - the 'clowns' were not at all funny (even my children didn't laugh), the performers were amateurish and at one point I was hiding behind my scarf as the girl doing the hoop performance as she dropped them a couple of times. I have seen zippo's before and was very impressed but this was yet another poor show in London just trying to get as many people through the door, taking their money and forgetting that it should be about the children especially at Christmas - a real shame.
