Successful first season for The Mellors Group at Fantasy Island leads to over £3 million investment for 2017.
Following the company’s purchase in March by Mellors Group Fantasy Island Holdings Ltd, Fantasy Island has had a very successful 2016 season and are looking forward to introducing new and exciting experiences for customers in 2017!
Shortly after the purchase was completed, the themepark welcomed back extreme ride, G- Force; an exhilarating 50 meter tall thrill ride. ‘A blast from the past’ for returning park thrill seekers. The extreme ride captivated both old and new customers and has left Fantasy Fans waiting in anticipation for what additional exciting attractions are to come…
We are now delighted to unveil that the Mellors will be investing in excess of £3 Million in a number of BRAND NEW rides and attractions; ready for visitors to indulge in next season and for years to come! This significant investment includes attractions such as a multi-platform themed indoor mini golf course, an American style bowling alley and 6 brand new junior and family rides to enhance the overall Fantasy Island offering.
The Mellors Group pride themselves on exquisite presentation and are also thrilled to finally announce tremendous facelift to Europe’s largest 7-day market… Upgrades in product variation, site presentation and branding will begin this winter season with the aim of completion for March 2018.
Fantasy Island’s overall package fulfils every customer need; keeping tots, teens, parents and grandparents excited to visit.
Director of Finance, Claire Draper explained “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”. Fantasy Island are promising its visitors that the launch on 18th March 2017 will not disappoint!
James Mellors says of this investment, “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 and in Skegness and Lincolnshire as a fabulous holiday and day-trip destination and as a place to live.”
Edward Mellors says, “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.”
