Park Preview Takeover Fantasy Island

Fantasy Island is scheduled to be accommodating a planned visit by Park Preview; a website dedicated to all theme parks. Park Preview are planning on recording point of view footage and other footage of the park whilst they're there. This visit is being held on Friday, June 6th at Fantasy Island, before taking over nearby Pleasure Island the next day. Anyone and everyone is welcome to attend, but are requested to make themselves known on the thread over at the Park Preview website.

Impressively, the organisers have managed to persuade Fantasy Island to open Jubilee Odyssey and Millennium Roller Coaster a whole two hours earlier. This early ride time is only available to visitors who have arranged to take part beforehand. Moreso, discount ride tokens will also be available for these people who will be able to take advantage of no queue time and an uninterrupted ride experience.

Girls Aloud Meet Fan at Big Weekend

Girls Aloud took to the Big Weekend stage at Fantasy Island on Saturday night. Whilst there, they met six year old, Skye Banks, one of the popular, girl band’s biggest fans. Lawrence Davis, managing director of Conduit Leisure, arranged the meeting with Skye’s idols.

"We met Laurence before the concert and he said it would be possible to go through to meet the group," James Banks, Skye’s father. Along with her grandmother, and her two friends, Denver and Kennedy Perkins, Skye was asked by band members where she was from and how she was enjoying the show. Skye also received a signed photograph of the band. Her father added that "It is every young girls’ dream and Skye has mentioned the meeting to all the family when they have called."

Sue Banks said: "It was fantastic to meet them; Skye was so excited and is really looking forward to telling her friends when she returns to school. This event is a good thing for Fantasy Island and I hope they put more concerts on in the future." The event itself might not have attracted a large crowd, but certainly made one young girl very happy in making her dream come true.
