The Ice Mountain ride at Fantasy Island was damaged by high winds on 29 March, during a storm that battered the Lincolnshire coast.

 

Despite the adverse conditions, staff at the Ingoldmells park were able to repair the ride the following day.

“The Ice Mountain was fixed the morning when the wind had calmed down and it was safe to carry out the work,” a spokesperson for the park told Lincolnshire Live.

The damage saw sections from the outside skin of the ride’s “covered cavern” ripped away by the wind, however no injury or damage was reported from flying debris.

Ice Mountain first opened on 6 April 2019 and serves as one of Fantasy Island’s most popular attractions with visitors able to “ride through a covered cavern illuminated with coloured floating ice and colourful lighting. Riders are transported through a world of penguins and polar bears.”

Though engineers are still able to access the site, Fantasy Island has been closed since last month due to concerns over the spread of Coronavirus.

“The safety and wellbeing of our visitors and staff is our priority,” said a spokesperson for the park.
