Recommended length of visit: More than 3 hours
Owner description: Located in Ingoldmells on the sunny east coast of Lincolnshire close to Skegness and a stone’s throw from the beach, Fantasy Island is the ultimate destination for all the family. Our extreme rides and coasters will test thrillseekers’ nerves, while those looking for something more family-friendly will have plenty of rides, arcades and other attractions to choose from. There are lots for the little ones to enjoy too, including rides, a soft play area and live character shows during the high season. What’s more, Fantasy Island is home to Europe’s largest seven-day market, where you can find everything from gifts, toys and gardening tools to clothing, accessories and electrical. And, when you need to recharge your batteries, you’ll be spoilt for choice with the many restaurants, cafes and bars across the park to take a well-needed break! Don’t forget that our ride-all-day wristbands offer real value and more savings than ever before, or if you’d prefer to pay-as-you-ride, you can do!

Visited earlier this month in half term and was slightly disappointed to find the rides were only operated in rotation. This meant that my toddler had to wait up to an hour to go on the already limited number of rides that he was tall enough to go on. The market is very expensive and repetitive, most stalls selling the same type of things. The top up card is a great idea but we weren't made aware on purchasing that the amusements also use this system. Also parking charges are extortionate so we parked along the road for a quarter of the price!

I went with my two children aged 9 and 12, my nine year old is 1 metre 32 but that didn't mean he got on the rides. I paid £51 and two rides that my 9 year old could go on? well one was closed and the other had disappeared (the mouse ride seemed to be a half built haunted castle) so this left him with very little thrill rides left to go on.

He went on the dodgems or bumper cars (or dont bump the bumper cars as the long winded name should be) the whole time was spent with a guy shouting don't bump into each other??? is that not the point? my son was accepted on the ride that hops up and down, two minutes later with not much else to go on he was refused?? strange.

We stayed an hour as we had done the rides that we could do or were open twice, £51 I got into blackpool leisure beach so very poor value and to be honest I felt ripped off.

Had numerous stays in Ingoldmells in the past few years and always have a visit to Fantasy Island with the kids either having a daily or weekly wristband. Last week we were there and our daughter had a daily wristband which worked out just over £15 but she was on the rides for well over 6 hours so well worth the money. The park had trimmed up for Halloween which looked fantastic and the haunted house was amazing, although I've never seen the daughter exit anywhere as fast haha. There are plenty of places to eat, a market for everyone to look around and rides that cater for both young and old alike. Definitely well worth the money.
