I spent over £200 at Winter Wonderland – people say we were ripped off but I think it was absolutely worth it

Claiming to have spent hundreds of pounds on the afternoon out, she listed details of her spending.

She happily paid £7 for a hot chocolate and £8 for a single hot dog – but admitted she’d “had better”.

And after spending £16 each to enter the ice bar, she only stayed for a measly 10 minutes.

In terms of rides, Chan went on the big wheel – which charged her £10 each – and ice skating for a steep £15.50.

Despite being the 15th year of festive fun at Hyde Park, many have dubbed it a rip off vowing never to go.

Amid the cost of living crisis many slammed the once reasonably-priced family day out as “expensive and overpriced”.

One user commented under the video: “With a cost of living crisis, those prices are extortionate and unfair on customers.

“Nobody should be spending that much for food and drinks.”

Meanwhile another said: “I’m sorry £8 hot dog, £7 hot chocolate!”

Another added: “People get ripped off so bad.”

A man simply joked: “Could have gone to Disneyland Paris for that.”

It comes after The Sun Online visited the market where two small bags of pick ‘n’ mix cost nearly £20, candy floss was £8 and a potato on a stick was £7.

The day would now cost parents around £40 to eat before you even have a drink or go on the rides.

A breakdown of everything she spent:

  • Hot chocolate – £7
  • Hot dog – £8
  • Ice bar – £16 each
  • Giant wheel – £10 each plus £10 fast track
  • Ice skating – £15.50 each plus £2 charge for bags
  • Churros – £9
  • Beanie hat – £15
  • Fairground game – £10
As well as high prices for food, the rides were also expensive
