Visitors lambasted the Hyde Park tourist attraction for charging the premium rates during a hard winter for millions across the country.

Attractions cost between £3 and £10 per person per ride.

One park-goer told The Mirror: "Getting tickets for Winter Wonderland for my mam and sister visiting at the end of the month and…what a ludicrously expensive ordeal.

"I'm amazed they're letting you breathe without having to buy a ticket."

Another told The Sun: “My friends want to go to Winter Wonderland and it is scary how expensive it’s gotten since I went in 2014, I don’t even want to go now."

And one father told MyLondon: "The rides were ridiculously expensive. [The] majority were £8 each, so for a family of four £32 for a five-minute ride wasn’t great."

Celebrities spotted at the site so far this year include Naomi Campbell, Gemma Collins and ex-prime minister Boris Johnson's wife Carrie, who took their son Wilf.
