Pleasure Island Family Theme Park was an amusement park in Cleethorpes, Lincolnshire, England, UK.


The park was owned and operated by Flamingo Land until 2010. It was closed abruptly on 14 April 2010, with all staff being laid off. However, the park reopened in May 2010 with almost all staff being re-employed. The park had been purchased by one of its former managing directors, Melanie Wood.[1][2]

On 21 September 2016, Melanie Wood announced that the park would close at the end of the season. The final day of operation was 29 October and the park closed after a fireworks display.[3]

In January 2017, the undercover show arena for the Masai Warriors caught fire. The cause of the fire is currently unknown.

During 2017 many of the rides and attractions were sold and removed from the park. In January / February 2018 Prestige Auctions from Grimsby announced an onsite public auction at Pleasure Island which would commence in March. On offer was signage, theming, kitchen equipment and merchandise. Along with all the theming, signage and animatronics etc from the Tommy Tinkaboo's Sweet Adventure dark ride. Also on offer were a few of the remaining rides. Including the Cycle Monorail, Century 2000, ShrieksVille ghost train and the Carousel.
