Future Plans

Ambitious plans have today been revealed for Fantasy Island, however unfortunately for us enthusiasts these do not involve new ride attractions. The new owners - Conduit Leisure took the first steps in their “regeneration scheme” by refurbishing the market over the winter, developments like this will now continue into 2008 and the foreseeable future as revealed in today’s press release.

One development set to take place is a regeneration of the Fantasy Island Pyramid. This includes new entertainment and catering facilities. The rides are also set to be given some much needed maintenance and improvements. Conduit Leisure have also confirmed that they do not plan on removing any of the present ride attractions.

The biggest and most notable upcoming development is the hotel and casino complex, this is still planned for the park even though the management has moved from Blue Anchor Leisure to Conduit Leisure since these plans were first mentioned. If this goes ahead the complex will be placed on the present car park at the corner of Sea Lane and Roman Bank. On a related note high class holiday apartments are also to be constructed to compliment the new hotel.

More retail opportunities are to arise in 2008, with the caravan sales ground being replaced with new retail developments. An expansion to the current market is also set to take place, however chairman of Conduit Leisure Mr Davis expressed this would be “careful expansion”.

The planning applications for these future developments are expected to be sent off around June with the first signs of construction to take place in the Autumn. These developments are set to offer around three to four thousand job opportunities.

The biggest fireworks display the Lincolnshire coast has ever seen is set to take place at Easter on April 7th to mark the beginning of a new era for Ingoldmells.
