Last Chance to Experience Winter WonderFest at Navy Pier


This is your last chance to round up the troops and head to Navy Pier where you can bask in seasonal bliss without bundling up. The PNC Bank Winter WonderFest is open until Jan. 10 and offers more 24 rides and attractions and 170,000-square-feet of entertainment for all ages.

New attractions this year include the Polar Extreme, a double-sided inflatable slide and obstacle course, interactive Arctic Peaks Climbing Walls and an expanded, more challenging Winter Rules mini golf course sure to offer an additional layer of friendly competition and frozen holiday fun.

This year, visitors to the PNC Bank Winter WonderFest will be greeted by an exciting and reimagined new décor as well as a glittering forest of nearly 500 trees decorated with 25,000 ornaments hung on a mile of wire. From there, guests can glide across the always popular Blackhawks ice skating rink, soar across the 40-foot Cliff Hanger or take in the view from the top of the towering 50-foot-high indoor Ferris wheel. In between cups of hot cocoa, visitors can drop in on Santa and his elves at the Claus residence, snap a photo on the Giant Holiday Howdy Horse, or decorate a freshly baked sugar cookie.

The PNC Bank Winter WonderFest is open 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Sundays through Thursdays and 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays.

Special Holiday Hours:

  • January 4-7: 10 a.m. – 5 p.m.
