When you have a young family, it can be extremely difficult to find a summertime trip that will keep your younger children amused. Often funfairs and day trip destinations only cater for children of primary school age, missing out the younger age group entirely. If this is a problem you are facing, then Fantasy Island in Skegness, Lincolnshire is the perfect place for you.
The Little Explorer section caters for the youngest of families with numerous rides and experiences available which will spark the imagination of young children and adults alike. Perhaps your child fancies themselves as a budding pilot. If this is the case then The Jets ride will definitely leave them flying high as they control their very own plane through the skies. If they are a fan of horses, the Jungle Adventure will provide them with a horse riding experience they are unlikely to forget.
For any young animal lovers, Toucan Tours is a ride that cannot be missed. This ride will take your child to a fantasy island where they can experience volcanoes, lost temples and much more with the help of their toucan and parrot guides. Following their tour, they can then ride on their very own elephant before continuing the adventure in the Island’s Seaquarium as captain Rhombus takes them on a magical, musical adventure through the sea.
All young explorers get hungry, so after their incredible adventure why not treat them to something tasty to eat at one of the many food and drink outlets before taking a stroll around the Market Town? You might even find something that takes your own fancy amongst the toys, gifts, home and garden, fashion and electrical stalls.
Fantasy Island also understand the bigger picture of taking a young family out for the day, so have baby changing facilities and toilets available throughout the park, along with many opportunities to rest weary feet.
So, for a great day out without the hassle, put Fantasy Island on the top of your list of day trip ideas to keep both the young and the ‘young at heart’ entertained this summer!
