Volcanic Impact Reopens

Volcanic Impact has recently reopened. The S&S Space Shot had been standing but not operating since the end of last year; whilst awaiting replacement parts. Fantasy Island reported in early July that parts were being fitted after “complications”. It’s unclear what these complications were, but the ride has since reopened for guests to enjoy the view from the top of the park’s tallest ride.

Volcanic Impacts Tilting Continues!

It was confirmed last season that Volcanic Impact no longer tilts, however, this was inaccurate. It's been confirmed to us by the park that the seats do still tilt but riders must ask the operatives for this to take place once seated. Fantasy Island have also mentioned that only certain seats do tilt, so you must ask before riding as to which ones these are.

Impact's Tilting Era Comes to An End

Volcanic Impact or Volcanic Eruption as it’s more commonly known was equipped with tilting seats for 2003 season. After which the once reliable ride experienced a series of technical difficulties resulting in persistent downtime.

Due to this the park has now come to the decision to return Impact to its previous fixed seating positions. We have learnt that the mechanisms which allow the ride to tilt were at fault; consistently tearing themselves apart.

This world first for an S&S Launched Freefall ride is no more.
