Winter WonderFest at Navy Pier

Time Out says

Too cold outside? Navy Pier brings all of the winter fun indoors, filling its gigantic 170,000-square-foot Festival Hall with an ice skating rink, carnival rides, a tubing hill, seasonal activities and piles of holiday decorations. Bring the kids and avoid the slush for an afternoon or show up on New Year's Eve (when the attraction is open until 10pm) to slide around the fake ice during the final hours of 2019. Anyone under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult.

2 out of 5. I never write reviews but I was so disappointed. On top of the $28 to get in per person, it's another $28 to park. Of course food is extra, some activities are extra $, and photos start at $40. After paying all this there are maybe four county Fair type rides and inflatables. If you paid full price, your kids are too big to play on the inflatables. Also you don't get to ride the Centennial wheel, you only get to look at it through the window. Overall it is a waste of money and I would not recommend it. I personally will not go back.


Great Place to take the kids and let them run wild! They have activities for kids of all sizes. That’s what i Love about this indoor theme park. Everything is based off height and. It age. Kids 36” and smaller are free, kids above 36” but below 42” are $13, 42” and taller are $28. Discounts available online or via Groupon. Plenty of overpriced food, but they allow you to bring in your own food! Major plus! It’s a beautiful experience and should be enjoyed atleast once in your life!
