A day out at Fantasy Island is one of the most popular things to do in Skegness, attracting visitors from all over the country. In order to make the most out of your day at Fantasy Island, we’ve put together a short list of tips and advice to ensure your trip runs smoothly.
Arrange a meeting place if you get lost
If disaster strikes and your phone runs out of battery or one of your kids gets lost while you’re out and about, it’s a good idea to arrange a meeting place beforehand where you can all congregate. If you have a large family, it’s likely that you’ll split up and go on different rides, and, on some occasions, the rides will end in a completely different location to where they started, so it’s essential to arrange a spot to meet to relieve some stress. Choose a conspicuous meeting place that everyone, including the kids, will be able to identify immediately and make sure that everyone knows where it is before you get started.
Plan your route
When most people enter a theme park, they tend to turn right, but instead of following the crowd, why not go to the rear of the park first and make your way back towards the entrance or go anticlockwise? Alternatively, you could make a priority list of the rides that you are most keen to go on and head there first. The most popular rides at Fantasy Island will obviously have the longest queues, so it’s a good idea to head there when your energy levels are higher and you don’t mind waiting a bit longer.
Use a map
You’ll be given a map once arriving at the park. Taking a look at a map can help you identify which rides you want to visit and the order that you want to ride them in so that you can tick them off your list. This is especially handy if you have young children so that you can time how long it will take to get from one ride to another so that you can cut down on the amount of time spent walking and plan when you’re going to take breaks. Having a loose plan and schedule for your day will keep your kids happy and ensure that the day runs smoothly. You can also use our interactive mobile app to navigate the park.
For an unforgettable family day out, make sure that you plan your trip to Fantasy Island.
