Locations Selected for New Rides!

Fantasy Island have recently exclusively revealed that several locations around the park have been chosen to receive new rides for 2008 and onwards. It is as yet unclear what ride types will arrive at the park, however judging by previous attractions we are sure they won't disappoint! It's been rumoured that one of these new attractions is from Mondial whom manufactured Beast and Amazing Confusion.

New Themeing on its Way

The whole of the park is to receive a complete re-theme as confirmed by Fantasy Island. The new owners - Conduit Leisure want the entire park brought up to a consistent theme, which is to involve giving a complete makeover to rides such as Odyssey which has yet has no themeing.

The artists are currently drafting up plans for this development. However, it is expected that several redesigns will take place before we see any construction.

Odyssey to Have Most Productive Season Ever

You may remember that this time a year ago Jubilee Odyssey took its first test run of the year and stalled in the valley between the Cobra Roll and Horseshoe Turn. Fantasy Island are confident that the problems experienced with the ride both last season and in previous seasons have finally been ironed out. They expect this year will be its most productive season to date.

The park also made it clear and couldn't stress enough that the ride will still be closed in high winds, which they cannot control.

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.
