It's back: Waterfront Winterland - with added comfort

Swansea's popular Waterfront Winterland will be back this Christmas - and its Admiral Ice Rink will have a roof for the first time.


Tickets are on sale now for the rink at the heart of the Christmas attraction which will entertain thousands on Museum Park from November 16 to January 6.

Waterfront Winterland will also feature a family funfair including a traditional carousel and a 33m-high giant wheel, offering expansive views of Swansea Bay and the city.

Adrenaline-rush rides will include the Sky View, Snow Storm and new ride Ice Extreme.

The food area will feature a new grill unit for burgers and sausages, a confectionary unit for sweet treats, coffee and crepes, and a new bar from Swansea business Juniper Place.

Cllr Robert Francis-Davies, the council's cabinet member for investment, regeneration and tourism, said: "A Swansea Christmas wouldn't be complete without a trip to Waterfront Winterland - it's a magical attraction.

"It's great that skaters on the Admiral Ice Rink, complete with Christmas music and twinkling lights, will be able to remain dry this year and rain won't dampen their fun.

Waterfront Winterland, now in its thirteenth year, last year attracted over 160,000 visitors.

Cllr Francis-Davies said: "Since the event first started, we have been working with South Wales-based Sayers Events for the provision of the funfair and catering options. This year, Sayers along with 11th Hour are managing Waterfront Winterland on behalf of the council. We are delighted to welcome them on board as our event partner."
