They Think It's All Over, Not Quite

Like most other parks around the UK, Fantasy Island close their rides around this time of year. With this past Sunday being the last day of regular business, news comes in that a limited selection of rides will be available for the next two weekends; the 8th, 9th, 15th and 16th November. However, don't get your hopes up for anything major, the Millennium train has already been removed for winter storage and maintenance, as well as this it's been noted that the Safari train has been dismantled and maintenance have been spotted working on Fantasy Mouse. Rides confirmed to be open are Techno Jump, Coconut Twist and a selection of other childrens rides. This limited selection will open between 11am and 3pm.

Still, if you're in the area looking out for a bargain or two, the market will remain open for weekends only through 'til Christmas.

The past season has been a year of ups and downs. Absolutely Insane never got off the ground; despite its cart being reattached. A year of speculation suggesting that the attraction would be leaving the park has now come full circle, as there's now talk that the ride can't be sold. Therefore hope remains that the ride will remain at the park and reopen next year. A staggering amount of downtime for Beast this year also left the park without yet another of their big thrill rides for ten weeks. On the bright side however, both Millennium and Odyssey have had a significantly productive year as we welcomed the reduced cost of Jubilee tokens. Plans for next year include a mini golf course, and more market stalls. The season may be over, but the Island Quest forums are still open for you to discuss your thoughts about anything and everything relating to Fantasy Island.
