Join us for the season of Pier. We absolutely can’t wait for PNC Bank Winter WonderFest to open at Navy Pier.
The 15th annual PNC Bank Winter WonderFest will be located in Festival Hall and will run from December 5, 2015 to January 10, 2016. There will be more than 24 rides, including the 50-foot-high indoor Ferris Wheel, musical entertainment, ice skating on the 170,000 square foot Chicago Blackhawks Ice Skating Rink, and fun photo opportunities. The best part about all these activities? They’re all indoors; we’ll provide the magic of the holidays without having to worry about winter weather!
Experience the wonder of PNC Bank Winter WonderFest with our Activity Ticket. Grab the whole family and begin the day spinning round and round inside an over-sized teacup on the Hot Cocoa Cups – a beloved attraction at the fest. Grab a view of the entire festival on our 50-foot high indoor Ferris wheel. Take a slide down our 15-foot-high tubing hill, experience the arctic plunge on our polar bear slide, and then take a spin on the Wonder Whirl. There’s something for the entire family to enjoy at PNC Bank Winter WonderFest!
It’s not a holiday festival without a visit to Santa and Mrs. Claus at the Claus Residence. You can meet with one of Santa’s elves and then tell Santa Claus what’s on your holiday wish list. A professional photographer will be ready to capture your visit.
End the day with a family photo on top of a giant rocking horse, before taking in the beauty of our 42-foot, magnificent tree – the centerpiece of PNC Bank Winter WonderFest.
