2007 Opening Times

The 2007 opening times have now officially been released by Fantasy Island. The season will start as of March 17th 2007: on a weekends only basis. The park will open daily during the Easter week, with weekends only to follow this from the 16th to 27th of April. Daily operation will take place from here on until the season end.

The Fantasy Island Market will open its gates on the 3rd of March weekends only, and then daily from April 1st.

This years opening of the rides has been moved several weeks forward, but still manages to open before many other parks such as Alton Towers. Hopefully the extra few weeks will give them time to prepare the rides for the new season, and prevent a repeat of last yearís double Odyssey rollback. Let the waiting continue.




Off Season Nid Bits

Off Season Nid Bits

Routine maintenance seems to be the priority this winter. With a new floor already added to the station of Rhombus Rocket, track work is also underway. Elsewhere maintenance on Fantasea Flume looks to be taking place, this has been limited to the station area so far.

Now Christmas has been and gone the market has closed until the season, although unexpectedly the indoor area seems to have remained open: Not only on weekends but 7 days a week. I wouldnít expect this to last long since I was the only person taking a look round when I last visited...

No News is Bad News

Another year will come and go and Iím sad to report that no new attractions will be added to Fantasy Islands line-up this season. This will be the third season running in which the park have failed to provide any new attractions. However, we can always hope that this means that the park are behind the scenes planning something impressive...

Brighten Up Those Winter Blues

Feel the outdoors without fearing the cold gloomy weather and take a peek at our collection of Island Quest videos now previewing at the forums. Relive the memories that now seem so far away, and take away those winter blues by cracking open a can and checking out multi angle footage of the BIG three, Odyssey under construction, and something you cannot see anywhere else ... G-Force. In full high definition format with Dolby Digital surround sound, well their not quite HD ready (or Dolby) but still worth a watch, you have our word.

Happenings!

Happenings!

Ground work has begun to occur in the space next to Beast, could this be in preparation for a new 2007 attraction? This the first time since 2004 that construction of any shape or size has taken place actually on park.

Directly opposite the park Planet Fun is also having a revamp for 2007 with a new extension being added, this is now well underway. This extension once complete will almost double the current size of Planet Fun.

Itís not quite as much of an off season as you would expect at Fantasy Island, the market continues to open until Christmas every weekend. Planet Fun amusements are also still open on both Saturday and Sunday.
