Bingo Hall Revamp?

Island Quest Member Leon has recently made a trip down to Fantasy Island! Leon has managed to get some pictures of the latest development at Fantasy Island - Refurbishment works too the Bingo Hall.

These buildings works have yet too be confirmed by the park as a refurbishment, however we could see somthing new take on this key location at the Fantasy Island Resort. It has to be said however, the fact that the old Bingo machines are still on-site point's towards a refurbishment of what was a rather outdated decor!

Park Reveal Future Plans

Park Reveal Future Plans

Conduit Leisure revealed big plans for the resort at the public meeting held on Saturday. Among those plans were to include two hotels, holiday homes, concert arena (The Bowl), casino, 'park and ride' system as well as the market extension. Based on conceptual designs on display at the meeting, it's perceived that one of the hotels could be situated on the site of Mrs M's fish and chip restaurant and Fantasy Mouse.

Investment for new rides won't happen for a few years whilst these plans are still afloat. However, the future of the rides complex at the park is said to be secure, although it was said that some smaller scale rides might begin to operate on a rotational basis. The potential for a wrist band scheme looks even stronger as it's speculated that it could be introduced as soon as the beginning of next season. A meeting is said to be taking place this week as they confirmed that they are looking at two different types of pricing system.

The market expansion is subject to planning permission, but at this stage no planning application has been submitted for the other long term projects.

Thanks to Island Quest forum member, Martyn.

Park to Hold Local Meeting

Fantasy Island have invited residents of Ingoldmells to hear plans for now and the future of the main car park. The meeting will take place on Saturday November 29th at 2pm in Scallywags Showbar. We already know that plans have been submitted to East Lindsey District Council requesting planning permission to erect 96 new market stalls on that area, but it remains to be seen whether the park have further details on the planned expansion.

Crazy Plans for 2009

Crazy Plans for 2009

Plans for a crazy golf course next year were recently unearthed on the Island Quest forums. The golf course will be located beside the Go Kart track; weaving between the supports for the Odyssey and Millennium roller coasters. Little construction work has already taken place, but the area has been fenced off and cleared ready for work to begin over the winter.

Long term visitors to the park will remember that Fantasy Island once featured a crazy golf course, once situated behind Volcanic Impact between 2001 and 2003. It's unknown whether the new course will use some (or even all) of the old material used for the course itself.

The official Fantasy Island website is due an overhaul ready for the new season as well. Whilst the current website is beginning to show its age, this move is more likely provoked by the change in ownership than an actual need to redesign the website.

Thanks to IQ forums member Leon for the info.

Plans Approved for Car Park

Plans Approved for Car Park

The plans to make alterations to the main car park have been approved. Work had already been started before the plans were submitted, which didn't go down too well with East Lindsay District Council planning department. When submitted, the plans weren't really anything to write home about; unless you happen to take an unhealthy interest in car parks. No new rides, no new arena, just plans for improving water drainage, reinstatement of vehicular access and resurfacing. It's possible that this work is being carried out in relation to the rumoured replacement of caravans on the site next to the car park with log cabins. Either way, adequate drainage should lessen the amount of surface water on the car park.
