Most likely replaced with Mannings own 'Showtime' Afterburner 24.

Has anyone been on 'Showtime', is it a good machine? And does anyone think it can rival oblivion?

I've been on it a fair few times. It's vastly superior in just about every way. Spins higher, faster and for much longer.

Guys on the winter wonderland's website they say power tower and air will be returning along with winter wonderland express! I would like to see ski jump return and I want a good coaster to arrive at the fair! Also is there any chanc they get rid of ski party(orbiter) because I hate how you have to sit in that do you think it could be replaced with a danters extreme? I prefer those so much more! I would like to see a good coaster arrive!

I could imagine sooner or later a travelling eurofighter. It seems quite quick to build, lift hill on one lorry, rest on another.

@Rollermad If you have ever been to Winter Wonderland it is what's known there as the Christmas Coaster, the inverted green coaster manufactured by Buwalda

These are some useful tips for those who want to go there and spend their holidays. Winter Wonderland is a very popular park among tourist and visitors. I wish to go there.

I am going on the 18th December, how much money should I bring, and what is a MUST do, and what would you recommend, going with my other half, so wondering what we should go do together!? Any Help, Thanks! ;)

Jack, rides will be £4 mostly, with some of the larger ones around £6.

Ultimately it depends on how much you want to do. I would personally recommend both Air and Power Tower to start with, both will set you back £6 each.

Action! Music Express is a lovely ride and is usually £4. Alpine Hotel is another must do and is usually £4 as well.

Other rides of note are ShowTime Afterburner and Wild Mouse XXL. Both are new this year but I expect prices in the range of £5.
