Winter Developments

During the winter months of every year, Fantasy Island carry out winter maintenance on rides. This year, the park are also moving a number of children's rides around, although at this stage it is unknown what will take their place in and around the helix of the Millennium Roller Coaster. Here's a look at our photo trip report from when we visited the area on January 15th 2011.

Little has happened with Amazing Confusion since September 2010 when it was almost completely dismantled after problems were first identified in June 2010.

As can be seen in these photos, a lot of the ride has been dismantled, with the mast for the ride reportedly being sent away for maintenance at Mondial.

The Odyssey train has been removed from the track once again for winter, with more parts of Amazing Confusion lying next to the station.

Both Coconut Twist and Techno Jump are both almost completely stripped down for winter, with the cars being stored inside.

Likewise, the gondolas for The Beast have been completely removed.

This wider shot shows some of the space that has been freed up by moving the children's rides. It's currently unclear what will take their place, but there is room within the helix of Millennium for a medium sized ride such as a waltzer.

This area next to The Beast was once home to the Safari Land Train and Circus Convoy Ride, which were removed toward the end of the 2009 season. Pony Express has already been moved, making effective use of this narrow space.

There's still a small amount of space here that could be used for another children's ride.

Wreckers Cove was completely dismantled to allow the wall behind to be demolished. Wreckers Cove has now been reconstructed, but slightly further away from Fantasy Mouse, making space for another access point to the market stalls behind.
