Through the entrance gate, you are in paradise with a Ferris wheel, Aerial swings, and Huge slides.
Weekend nights were very crowded and there were lines for attractions. But I just waited for about 10 min to get it, so it’s no long.
However, the skating rink which the Dutch people really like was long line than other attractions.
I think the most popular attraction is Huge slide, and the most unusual thing is the snowball battle. I think it’s fun just to look.
Are you good at games? Try to get a Pokemon by the crane game. I couldn’t get any, but it was exciting!
Then you can find tasty foods, such as Oliebollen and a hot chocolate. And don’t miss the marshmallow shop next to the Ferris wheel. You can roast the marshmallows over a bonfire and eat. Yummy!
The information, lockers, and toilets are indoors.
There are various attractions in the indoor area, and inside is very warm with the heating.
The popular skating rink connects the outdoor and indoor areas. Skate shoes can be rented, but gloves are required.
When you want to sing a Christmas song, let’s go Karaoke! Karaoke is a space where you can sing along to recorded music.
Even if you don’t sing at Karaoke, there is always music on the main stage. Various music events are held on the main stage everyday.
After dancing, I know you’re hungry and thirsty. Let’s eating and drinking! There are many Dutch dishes such as sandwiches and croquettes, also a bar that sells alcohol in front of the main stage.
Indoor Entertainments with Kids
Many children were playing in the snow area. It’s fake snow, so it’s not cold and doesn’t melt, but it was a mysterious fake snow that could make snowballs. fun!
The outdoor slide is 10m high, but the indoor Tube slide is more lower. It’s not scary, so kids will enjoy it. Of course adults can play too.
In addition, there are many attractions such as a Huge maze, Cross-country skiing, Carousel, VR and more and more. The entrance fee is not cheap but it is including those attractions, so it’s a great deal.
When I visited I was really surprised because I don’t expect it to be such a big amusement park. Winter Paradijs is a real paradise that I want to visit every year!
