Fantasy Island Plans

Island Quest has gained access of copys of plans for Fantasy Island.

Included within these plans are the blueprints for the planned 'Hammerhead Coaster' - A ride which was welcomed by all in the theme park community but was then pulled by the manufacturer Vekoma due to design and reliablity issues.

Also we exlusively reveal how the park has planning permission to build a proper car park on the site of the exiting overflow carpark (currently just a grass field).

To view these plans, as well as a general overview copy of the park masterplan visit our forum community, where you can also have your say. Simply click on the 'Discuss' link below.

Welcome Back: New Forums

Welcome Back: New Forums

The Island Quest Community is now back online! In the 4 days we have been offline, Barry and the rest of the site team have managed to transform the forums by upgrading the software and add some impressive new features for members to enjoy.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank members for their patience whilst we transfered to our new forums, however I'm confident you will enjoy the many benefits the new forums have to offer.

At this point in time, I would like to stress to members that there is no need to re-register as all user accounts and related posts have been transfered over from the previous forums.

The main structure of the forum hasn't changed that much however there is some noticeable changes, for example the User Control Panel; where members can keep more control of their account.

A selection of other new benefits are listed below:

- Ability to create a friends list.
- Reported/blacklisted posts util.
- Moderator control panel.
- User control panel.
- Ability to block someone.
- A utility to bookmark topics.
- Add attachment files to posts.
- A completely overhauled admin panel that offers more control over the board than the current.
- Quick search feature.
- Auto delete function of zero posting members.
- Cleaner interface.

Island Quest as a whole is near completion and to aid the growth of the site as a whole, when the rest of the site comes online it was felt that a new forums was required. The previous forum had various coding errors and operated using seriously outdated forum software.

Island Quest now boasts the latest in forums technology. Integrated into the forums are many new features including the Arcade Room, Friends List, and neatly organised sub forums which break down what used to be large forums into smaller forums.

These new forums represent our dedication in making Island Quest one of the most enjoyable and fun theme park guide sites to be part of. It also represents the continued investment into the site and brand and increasing the enjoyment our users experience.

So go on, have fun and get posting, as we may have brand new forums, however without you; our loyal members, this community would be nothing.

Thanks once again for your support. Enjoy your forum.

Kind Regards,

Island Quest
Forum Team
