Plans for 2012

Fantasy Island are developing a new children's soft play area, expanding the market and planning more events.

The children's play area will be a self-contained area inside the pyramid complex on the second level. When completed, the play area will feature ball pools, rope bridges and ladders set to an adventure theme. The renovation project will also include a new dining area and separate area for party packages that the park hope to launch. Park directors are keen to get the children's play area open for June. New costume characters, the Butt Ugly Martians, are also expected to make appearances at the park this year.

Fantasy Island are also planning to create a new area aimed at teenagers. This new area is intended to feature simulators, a shop and a new concept of gaming within the pyramid complex.

As well as launching the children's soft play area in June, Fantasy Island are holding events to celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee; with a live radio broadcast and a street party. Duncan Goodhew, Olympic gold medal winner, will also be making a special appearance when the Olympic Torch passes through Skegness.

Despite being refused planning permission numerous times over the last few years, the park are still pushing for the market to be expanded further to the rear of the site. As well as more stalls, it is anticipated that there will be a broader range of products available.

The park management are keen to demonstrate how the park will develop over the next few years as well as their their commitment to Ingoldmells and Skegness as a resort. Laurence Davis, Fantasy Island’s chief executive, is keen to point out that "We [Fantasy Island] are not sitting on our laurels we are making things happen and plan to invest further capital in the site over the next five years". Nonetheless, the other projects forecasted to open this season have both been postponed. The Asylum and Splash Zone have been put on hold until at least 2013.
