Post by: dav43 on March 06, 2016, 10:39:46 AM
Fantasy island have been purchased by leisure group, Mellors after the property was placed on the market back in 2015,here is what they had to say,
With great pleasure and excitement Mellors Group are proud to say that this morning we completed the acquisition of Fantasy Island, a theme park on the East Coast in the UK.
Coincidentally this will now means that we operate 2 Fantasy Island theme parks, the other being in Dubai.
We are intending to bring a lot of our family’s showmanship to the East Coast resort, over the coming years in vast and varied attraction enhancements.
The resort is due to open on the 12th March 2016.
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.”
The group’s ownership of the 41-acre freehold property is expected to transform the current leisure offering, which already delivers record-breaking roller coasters and Europe’s largest seven-day market, as well as 340 static caravan pitches.
The site has been updated and refreshed, operations have been reviewed, new offers and facilities introduced and last holiday season saw an increase in visitors and turnover – proving that the British seaside, and Fantasy Island, still holds appeal for local residents and visitors from further afield.
sounds like they mean business  :thumbup: :thumbup:
