Fantasy Football Sessions

Fantasy Island have teamed up with Deano's Pro Soccer Academy to offer children the chance to perfect their football skills this summer. The Fantasy Football events will take place on several weekends in July and August, and will allow children to play a supervised game of football. Before they think it's all over, they'll be able to head off to Fantasy Island with their unlimited rides wristband.

The football sessions will be held in the morning between 9.15am and 2pm at Swifts JFC Playing Fields, School Lane, Ingoldmells. The sessions priced at 25 for one day, or 45 for both Saturday and Sunday sessions; the price includes the cost of the Fantasy Island wristband as well as the football session. Children are required to bring their own football equipment, boots/trainers, sun cream/rain jacket and a lunch time snack. More information can be found at Deano's Pro Soccer, as well as the ability to book sessions.

Jubilee Odyssey and Volcanic Impact Reopen for 2009

Jubilee Odyssey and Volcanic Impact Reopen for 2009

Despite set backs for two of the white knuckle thrill rides at Fantasy Island, Jubilee Odyssey and Volcanic Impact have reopened today for the first time in the 2009 season. Since testing very early in the year, Jubilee Odyssey stalled on its cobra roll inversion in March this year. More problems developed soon after as the lift hill motor needed replacing, causing several more weeks of downtime whilst the parts were being delivered from Vekoma.

Nonetheless, Absolutely Insane and Amazing Confusion remain closed. After shearing a drive pin last month, more problems were identified, leaving the ride awaiting more parts to be delivered from Mondial.

Odyssey Update: Lift Hill Motor

Jubilee Odyssey's still yet to reopen for the 2009 season. A number of problems have developed since testing in March, including stalling on the cobra roll, and the lift hill motor breaking soon after. The latter required the lift hill motor to be sent back to Vekoma, as parts aren't readily available in this country, and is due back on Wednesday. Unfortunately, this means that the ride will remain closed over the May Day Bank Holiday weekend, with a glimmer of hope of reopening on the 9th May.

In related news, Volcanic Impact and Absolutely Insane are expected to reopen for the Spring half term.
