Taking your kids for a day out at Fantasy Island is one of the best things to do in Skegness. To make sure that you’re prepared for your family day out, we’ve put together a list of tips for visiting Fantasy Island with children.
Make a contingency plan
As a parent, you’ll know that accidents can happen and children can wander off when your back is turned, so it’s essential to come up with a plan in case you and your kids become separated. It’s a good idea to give your younger children identifiable contact information for them to carry on their person in case they get lost. For older children, tell them exactly what they should do and where they should go if they become separated from you.
Upon arrival you will receive a map of the park, keep a hold of that map so you can take a look and identify the location of park services together is also a good idea so that they know exactly where to go if they get lost.
With children, it is always best to expect the unexpected. If you have an agenda for the day, be prepared to make some changes to it when you arrive and be relaxed and flexible. After all, you are there to have fun, not stick to a strict schedule. While a vague game plan is a good idea, it’s always best to come up with a Plan B just in case things don’t go as you expected them to. You might need to take a break in case your kids get tired, so if you allow your kids some control over what they do that day, they’re much less likely to burn out and will be free to make the most out of their time at Fantasy Island.
When you’re visiting Fantasy Island with your children, packing emergency supplies and water is essential. You never know when your kids will start to get thirsty or require things like plasters, sunscreen or hand sanitizer, so it’s best to pack everything that you could possibly need (within reason, you won’t want to carry a heavy bag) so that you are prepared for any eventuality. It’s also a good idea to bring a few refillable water bottles in case it’s a sunny day so that everyone can stay hydrated throughout the day.
