The most iconic travelling roller coaster has been confirmed to attend the festive event in London’s Hyde Park later this year.

The iconic travelling ride had been the subject of much speculation regarding its appearance at the notable event, until its official attendance was confirmed on the ride’s website.

The Schwarzkopf manufactured attraction made its debut in 1989 at Oktoberfest, before going on to become one of the most notable travelling rides in the world.

First signs of the ride’s presence were noted in August, after a planning application detailing an attraction with a similar footprint was revealed on Westminister council’s website.

Despite confirmation from the owners of the ride itself, Winter Wonderland, which is celebrating its 10th year anniversary, are yet to announce the 110ft tall ride to their line up.

At present, it is unknown how much the attraction will cost for a single ride at Winter Wonderland, with usual price brackets at German Kirmes starting at €7.

Winter Wonderland will run from 18 November through to 2 January.
