Where’s Wallace…at Winter WonderFest!

Winter WonderFest @ Navy Pier It’s hard not to be overcome with the holiday spirit when you enter into the 10th annual Winter WonderFest at Navy Pier!There’s no need to stand out in the cold because Winter WonderFest is all indoors, making it easy to experience the warmth of winter!I was lucky enough to get a special previewof this amazing event happening at Illinois’ top attraction.Never in my life have I seen so much grandeur and fun, all in one place.

From the moment you enter you are transported into a holiday hamlet, bursting with activities for everyone.Carnival rides like an indoor Ferris Wheel, Slippery Snowflake Slide, Matterhorn Climb, Winter Wind Glider, and the new Himalayan thrill ride will excite kids of all ages.For those wanting to keep both feet on the ground, try out the interactive video games in the Extreme Alpine Dome thatlet you test your skills as a skier, or hold on tight in a simulated snowbile ride at the Glacier Run.After all that excitement, relax a while at the Winter WonderStage with some live entertainment or head over to the Create-A-Cookie Cottage to test your skills as a cookie decorator.And no trip to the Winter WonderFest would be complete without showing off your skills at the indoor Ice Skating Rink!Triple axle jump, layback spin, toe loop…no problem!
