Fantasy Island is an amusement park in Ingoldmells, Lincolnshire, England, UK. The attraction also contains an outdoor market, caravan sites, and holiday accommodation. At the centre of the attraction is a pyramid which contains the indoor Jellikins Coaster among other rides, arcades, and restaurants. The site is free to enter, with rides operating on a pay-as-you-go or wristband basis.


Fantasy Island opened in 1995 on the site of a former car park following three years of construction.[1]

The park went into administration in August 2014 and was acquired by Mellors Group in 2016.[2] Following the 2016 season the pyramid was refurbished and its windows covered over, blocking natural light from the interior. A mini-golf course and bowling alley were also added.[3]

On 18 March 2020, the owners of Fantasy Island announced that the opening of the amusement park for 2020 was being postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic.[4]
