Fantasy Island promises a whole day of fun and adventure for all the family. In fact, even the craziest thrill-seeker would struggle to fit it all into a single day – a good reason why so many people keep coming back for more! But if have just one day to visit Skegness’s top attraction, then a little planning can help you make the most of your time at Fantasy Island.
Here are four top tips to set you on your way:
Do Your Homework!
Skegness offers a care-free day out in Lincolnshire and a chance to let the sea breeze blow your troubles away. But before you head to Fantasy Island, take a little time to familiarise yourself with what’s waiting for you.
Be sure to read up on the up-to-date opening and closing times, as well as on what’s new and any other possible changes to rides and attractions. The best way to keep up-to-speed is by following Fantasy Island on Facebook. This is also a great way to start enjoying that holiday feeling and the anticipation levels before you set off.
Make a Smart Schedule
The Fantasy Island website has all the information you need to make a schedule for your day out in Skegness. While your family won’t enjoy rigidly sticking to a military timetable, a little time management can make a very big difference!
If you are an adrenaline junkie, then plan to enjoy Fantasy Island’s craziest rides in the morning or late afternoon – braving the Rhombus Rocket straight after lunch might not be such a good idea! Also, some rides are more popular than others, so think about ticking off your ‘must-try’ attractions first thing – and you can always come back and do them again later in the day!
But be Ready to be Flexible
While a little advance planning can help you get the most out of your time at one of the most popular funfairs in England, it helps to keep an open mind. The good news is, Fantasy Island has a wide range of options to choose from.
If it’s not the best weather and you want a break from the rain, then there’s plenty to keep you happy and dry. Challenge the family to a Lava Creek Adventure Golf tournament!
And if your little thrill seekers aren’t as brave as they thought, take a break from the white-knuckle Discovery rides and try something a little more laid back – there really is something for everyone!
Be a Smart Souvenir Shopper!
As Europe’s largest 7-day outdoor market, you might be tempted to head straight to the Fantasy Island Market and shop til you drop. However, it’s a good idea to do a little browsing first, check out all the amazing stores, pick out some souvenirs for friends and family – and maybe a little treat for yourself – and then come back and get them later in the day.
This way, your hands are free to enjoy a whole day of fun while knowing you definitely won’t be leaving Skegness empty-handed!
