Season Launching with a Bang

Fantasy Island are kick starting the 2014 season with a bang. The amusement park re-opens on Saturday 15th March and all-day ride wristbands on the first day will be priced at £5 each on the day. Prices for the rest of the season are reportedly remaining the same as last year, but the park are currently running a promotion to save 20% on wristband prices; when purchased online before 15th March.

A fireworks display is going to be held on Saturday 15th March at 6:30pm as well as further entertainment in Scallywag’s Showbar. Sophie from MTV’s Geordie Shore will also be making a special appearance at Fantasy Island.

Plans have recently been approved to revert the Mobility centre, on Roman Bank, into a fast food restaurant/drive-through outlet. The site was formerly occupied by McDonalds, but information in the plans indicates that the site will become a Burger King.

Pleasuredome Dates for 2014

The Pleasuredome is returning to Fantasy Island in 2014 with their successful music event. Promising an eclectic mix of hardcore, oldskool, hardhouse and drum & bass, the event is scheduled to take place on the 16th, 17th and 18th May 2014. The event has been held annually over the last few years, attracting thousands of people to the area, but this is the first time that it is due to span over an entire weekend. Local residents have criticised previous events due to anticipated noise concerns. Tickets are available to purchase from The Ticket Sellers, with more information available on their Facebook Page.

Summer Competition Winner Announced

Recently, we ran a competition for a chance to win four wristbands for Fantasy Island.

The response was fantastic, with a diverse range of entries telling us about their favourite ride at the park. We carefully shortlisted our favourite answers before selecting the winner at random.

We would like to congratulate Dan Boot for winning the four wristbands (kindly supplied by Fantasy Island) and hope he enjoys his time at the park.

Dan’s entry:

‘My favourite ride is Volcanic Eruption as it has been in the park since 1998 and it was the best when it first opened as you could buy edible lava and when it was ready to launch you up there was a script which on the last line said "It’s gonna blow!" and then smoke was made and it shot you out of the Volcano base, even now it still packs a punch and still dominates the Skyline.’
