Following a rough few years for Fantasy Island, the park has been bought by the Mellors Group.
The 41-acre resort, situated in Ingoldmells Skegness, comprises of a Theme Park and Holiday resort. Following the news that the park had entered administration in August 2014, today’s announcement of the Mellors Group purchase comes as a welcome surprise.
Mellors Group Events is run by UK-based travelling showman James Mellors, who has built a fantastic reputation over the years providing rides for major events including the Hyde Park Winter Wonderland and the Nottingham Beach, as well as running a park in Dubai, coincidentally also named Fantasy Island.
James Mellors, Managing Director of the Mellors Group said:
It is a very exciting time for our company as we have seen strong growth in our events business throughout the region and abroad. We pride ourselves on delivering the highest standard of attractions and we have some interesting investment plans and new rides for Fantasy Island in the near future.
Fantasy Island reopens for 2016 on 12th March. Naturally, we are intrigued to see what Mellors has in store. Could we expect to see some of the park’s rides at travelling events in the future, or maybe even a permanent home for his Ice Mountain coaster?
