Funland at Hayling Island has been run by the same family since it opened in 1946. Since then it has become a must visit amusement park and welcomes hundreds of thousands of visitors every year.
Although Funland has always been a part of the summer experience for any visitor to Hayling Island, in 2008 the staff at Funland decided to build a small Christmas event in their spare time for their amusement and for the enjoyment of local families. The Christmas event proved extremely popular and over the next couple of years it rocketed in size and popularity!
Since 2011 Hayling Island Winter Wonderland has been a permanent installation at Funland and work begins on the Wonderland in May and continues for six months before we open our doors each November. The Wonderland now attracts visitors from across the country and even internationally (In 2011 we welcomed guests from Denmark, Italy and the U.S.A!)
Hayling Island Winter Wonderland is a labour of love for many of the staff at Funland and we hope you enjoy visiting it as much as we enjoyed building it!
From 2011, Hayling Island Winter Wonderland has been proud to support Epilepsy Action and continues to raise money via sponsored events and Santa's Winter Wishing Well.
