A COUPLE who spent £176 at Winter Wonderland Christmas market say it has made their “pockets hurt”.
The video was uploaded to TikTok by a user who posts under the name Sakib and covers an evening outing to the famous festive attraction.
Some customers were left not wanting to return after price hikes saw hot dogs costing an eye-watering £10.50 and fish and chips on sale for £14.
And Sakib’s footage charts exactly how much he and his partner spent during their outing on various rides and stalls.
The TikToker reveals that the entrance fee was £5 with the festive theme-park previously being free to enter.
And ides such as the Ferris Wheel, Starfly and the Euro Coaster were just some of the themed rides they enjoyed.
While the Magical Kingdom full of ice sculptures cost a pricey £12 each to peruse.
The couple also revealed how they spent over £35 on food in total at Winter Wonderland.
Their purchases included bao buns, loaded chips, donuts and hot chocolate worth a pricey £4.50 each.

But the biggest expenditure by far was a huge £60 spent on games with the TikToker filming himself attempting to shoot hoops in basketball and knocking down targets with a ball.
The couple’s festive visit ended up costing them a whopping £176 in total.
However, the trip wasn’t a total rip-off with Sakib winning a Koala for his girlfriend at one of the stalls.
And the popular video has racked up over 120,000 views since it was uploaded.
As always, TikTokers were quick to weigh in with their opinion of the expensive Christmas market.
One said: “These days you can go on a 4 star package holiday for that amount.”
While another added: “£176 for just a koala.”
“Forgot to put car parking charges and congestion charge,” said a third.
But other said that the memories were worth the price or believed the prices to be reasonable.
One commented: “Lol people saying it’s expensive, rather be old with memories not rich and tight.”
And a second TikToker said: “Not that I would ever go but that’s bare cheap.”
It comes after people slammed one of Britain’s Christmas markets as a complete rip off.
