Skegness-based theme park Fantasy Island is to receive a £3m investment from its new owners, The Mellors Group, to open a variety of new attractions.

The company which also has a hand in Winter Wonderland and Nottingham Beach will be opening two news rides at the Skegness site including a multi-platform indoor mini golf course, an American-style bowling alley and six junior and family rides.

Director of finance at Fantasy Island, Claire Draper said: “The significant capital investment that we are committed to this winter is the most the site will have seen in nearly two decades.

“It is a huge undertaking with numerous projects to be completed in a short time-frame, but we are anxious to get started and excited to re-open and unveil the new Fantasy Island in March next year.”


This is not a one-off investment, it’s the first. Our commitment is long-term.


Director James Mellors Jnr, who took over the theme park in March said: “We have had a fantastic first season at Fantasy Island.

“Announcing a significant investment for 2017 is our vote of confidence in our great management and staff team, in Fantasy Island as a visitor attraction with amazing potential.”

Edward Mellors, also director, added: “This is not a one-off investment, it’s the first. Our commitment is long-term.

“Developing Fantasy Island, continuously improving the customer experience and attracting more visitors is a big and important part of our ambition to grow The Mellors Group for future generations.”
