  • Although we advise that you book online, you can always purchase wristbands on arrival at our Fantasy Island Theme Park.

    Pre-book in advance anytime up to the day before your visit or purchase on arrival.

    We are more than happy to welcome your onsite purchase on the day you decide to visit, and there is no difference between the pre-booked online prices and onsite prices on the day.

Access, Disability & Discounts

  • Our Blue Light discount is available onsite (not available online) from any of our cashier kiosks to:

    • Emergency Services
    • Armed Forces and MOD personnel
    • NHS Staff

    Identification by way of a Blue Light card or a suitable official identification card will need to be shown at the time of purchase from the bearer of that card\ID.

    The discount amounts to 30% off the cost of a 1-day wristband for the holder and up to 3 other members for their party.

  • If a guest has the correct documentation and needs accompanying on the rides due to their disability, their accompanying carer can receive a half-price wristband.

    Please note that we can only offer this discount on 1-day wristbands; it cannot be used in conjunction with any other offer and is not available online.

    As Fantasy Island staff are not permitted to make a judgement as to whether an individual has a disability or not, suitable evidence would need to be provided. Suitable evidence which shows a carer requirement could be any of the following:

    • Disability Living Allowance (DLA) letter
    • Disability Access Pass (aka A Nimbus Card)
    • Personal Independence Payment (PIP) letter
    • Universal Credit Carers Allowance letter
  • I’m afraid we do not accept the Max Card (the UK’s leading discount card for cared for and looked after children) on its own, however, the card is often accompanied by an additional requirement that is covered by our carers’ 50% discount which you may have access to.

    If you’d like more information about the carers discount, please visit our website here:

  • We are aware that other parks offer a queue jump or fast track system but, due to the size and layout of our theme park, this is something we cannot provide.

    We do have a system where another member of the party queues as usual, and when they reach the front of the line, we let the individual who cannot queue on through the exit gate; this has proven beneficial to several families.

    We do not tend to have large queues, and most days, these are less than 15 minutes.

  • Occasionally a child on the autism spectrum has difficulty wearing a wristband. In these instances, we have an option for that child’s wristband to be placed on their carer’s wrist alongside their own and for both to be given a stamp on the back of their hands to identify them as being together.

    The carer will need to be with the child on all the rides.

  • Two of our attractions have weight restrictions in accordance with the manufacturers Health & Safety guidelines.

    Dragon Mountain.

    Dragon Mountain is a two-person ride only (1 x child, 1 x adult).

    Wild Water Rapids.

    To ensure the Water rapids are loaded correctly, the ride works on a code system; green indicates customers are safe to ride, and red indicates that the boat’s safe weight limit will be exceeded.
