Lighting Upgrade Improves Carbon Footprint

Lighting Upgrade Improves Carbon Footprint

Fantasy Island has recently upgraded the lighting used on rides and the pyramid. A specialist team from SaveMoneyCutCarbon.com worked in collaboration with the park to replace the original lighting and coloured effect bulbs. The new system uses cutting edge RGB LED technology, which is more environmentally friendly when compared to traditional light bulbs.

As well as lowering the carbon footprint of the park, the new lighting can be programmed remotely to display a fantastic range of custom patterns. Adam Garton managed the project implementation and described how the new system allows him to “control the lights across the park using wireless technology directly from [his] PC or even an iPhone.”




New Age Restrictions

New Age Restrictions

Fantasy Island have introduced new restrictions for riding some of their more intense thrill rides. Under the new rules, guests have to be at least 12 years old to ride Beast, Amazing Confusion and Volcanic Impact. However, the age restriction is not a factor at other parks which operate identical rides and only enforce the height requirements. Due to this change, Fantasy Island have adjusted the age brackets for wristband pricing for adults and children. Under the new structure, anyone over the age of 12 will now be considered an adult.

August Developments

Summer may be almost over, but developments are still taking place across the park. The camera for Odyssey’s on ride photographs has been moved to the bottom of the sidewinder, meaning that souvenir photos can once again be purchased from the kiosk which was once the control booth for Absolutely Insane. Rhombus’ Rocket now also features on ride photography, as well as the log flume. In other news, the golf course, which opened in 2009, has recently been removed. The area, which lies besides the Grand Prix Go Karts in the market, has now been developed into a seating area. The park have also launched a new design for the official website; just six months after redesigning the site at the beginning of the season.
