About
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!

Fantasy Island at Halloween
Oct 2021 • Couples
Had a fab day at Fantasy Island today, it was our first visit and we really enjoyed the rides and the theming of the park, especially inside the pyramid that looks amazing and has a cool tropical/tiki feel. Despite being two adults we actually loved a lot of the kids rides as they were well themed! There is definitely lots for young kids here, flat rides, two kiddy coasters and some dark rides. The two biggest rides are the rollercoasters and both were really good, The Odyssey was the best Vekoma SLC I’ve ever been on and Millennium was a brilliant back row ride! Our main reason for coming on a rainy October Sunday was for the Halloween event “Fear Island”. There were 4 scare mazes including a family one, Halloween theming and a circus of screams. The mazes were all really good, brilliant theming and some great scares but Hellhole stood out for being the scariest maze I’ve done in a long long while! It’s a shame the park was not busier as they obviously put a lot of effort into this event and it really is brilliant value for money, the mazes are of a better standard than ones you would pay a lot more for at Merlin parks. I would recommend a day at Fantasy Island to anyone who enjoys Theme parks, it is definitely worth a visit and is great value and we can’t wait to return!

Theme Park day out
Oct 2021 • Family
Visited here as part of our Autumn holiday as we all love Theme Park's, the roller coasters were very good and exhilarating and highly recommend them. There are ride's for smaller children as well and when we went it wasn't too busy so we got on the rides we wanted which made our day go very quickly and thought the price was value for money.

DO NOT PARK IN THE FANTASY ISLAND CARPARK, YOU WILL BE SCAMMED AND FINED BY THEIR DECEPTIVE SYSTEM.
May 2021 • Family
PLEASE PLEASE DO NOT PARK IN THE SO CALLED “SMART PARKING” FANTASY ISLAND CARPARK, THEY WILL SCAM YOU AND SEND YOU A PARKING FINE.
Their pay machine is deceptive and the ANPR camera system doesn’t link to the pay machine. We entered our number plate and the machine charged us £2.
I thought it was the incorrect amount so I tried again in the next machine and entered our reg again but there was nothing on the machine to let us pay more that £2 . We had no other choice than to pay £2, so we did.
After a couple of weeks they sent us a fine by post for "insufficient time paid " as the ANPR camera had recorded more than the machine had charged us.
This is absolutely a deliberate SCAM because if not then this would have been amended months ago after the hundreds of complaints about this on Tripadvisor.
It’s made me seriously think twice about going to Fantasy Island again. By being like this it will cost them far more than the fines they are trying to make as I’ve already told all my friends about this scam.
PLEASE SAVE YOURSELF THE RISK OF GETTING FINED AND DO NOT PARK IN THE SMART PARKING CARPARK.

Still good fun!
Oct 2021 • Solo
Even though COVID has closed many of the outlets it was still a good outing. The arcade had started some new system of prepaid cards which is a turkey imo but apart from that all was good. The prizes on the pushers were fairly easy to win and the staff were very pleasant especially the older chap with glasses. Clean tidy arcade with modern machines.

SMART CAR PARKING FANTASY ISLAND SKEGNESS NO!!!
Aug 2021
very expensive, paid £180 for 3 adults & 2 children for 2 days only to be able to have 3 rides each one day & 2 the next. we parked in the car park (SMART) for 3 days,1 day we just went to the market. we payed by debit card & cash we had 2 cars between us. we arrived home only to find we had parking fines £60 each car per day. only 2 payments came out of the bank however we only noticed after we got home as we didnt check our online banking. i am contesting it i have asked for CCTV as their were cameras at the payment machine. the company needs reporting its FRAUD !!

Parking cheats at Fantasy Island
Aug 2021 • Couples
I have a caravan in Ingoldmels and have visited Fantasy Island regularly parking In the car park alongside the park. I have always purchased a ticket after parking and had no problems. On 13th August it was very very busy and entered the car park as usual. I am disabled and have walking disabilities so need to park near the entrance to the park. The car park was rammed and I could find a suitable space so after driving round the car park decided try somewhere else, maybe somewhere I could use my blue badge. I left the car park having not parked. After returning home I received a PCN for £100, or £60 if I paid quickly. I could not be liege it, the photos of my car showed I entered at 12:11pm and left at 12:21pm. 10 minutes and I did not park!!! I challenged through the proper channels but soon received a letter dismissing my challenge and telling me to pay the charge. I don’t mind paying for a service, but I DID NOT PARK. and did not receive a service. I am a disabled pensioner and I have been ROBBED!!!!!

Needs some improvements ASAP
Sep 2021 • Friends
Far too busy, really needs updating and they need to look at Health & Safety as the fire doors were all blocked from the indoor market and there was no means of escape! Rude queues were too long and it needs to be made more customer friendly instead of just putting travelling fair rides up and down

Very Disappointing
Sep 2021 • Couples
The park is very rough, people included, cheap tack on the market, terrible food, rude and rough staff, no care whatsoever. Rides are not worth the money you pay. Only good part was the amusement area.
