In the year that the Millenium coaster turns 25, there are plenty of celebrations to look forward to.

James Parker, Operations Director at Fantasy Island, said: “We are delighted to be re-opening our doors on 16th March. Our team has worked

tirelessly this winter to deliver what we hope will be the most exciting year that Fantasy Island fans have seen.

“As well as many events and celebrations, including Easter, Armed Forces Day, and, of course, the always popular Fear Island this October, we also have our show bars, which deliver high-quality entertainment every single week.

“With so much to do, both indoors and outdoors, there really is something for everyone, whatever the weather, and we can’t wait to welcome you back.”
