The Executive Member for Economic Development at Lincolnshire County Council Coun Colin Davie has given his reaction to the news that the Ingoldmells family theme park resort ‘Fantasy Island’ has been placed into administration,

He said: “Fantasy Island has been, for many years, a key tourist attraction on the Lincolnshire coast so we are, of course, concerned by today’s news.

However, local tourism is booming on the coast and across Lincolnshire, so we would be very surprised if the site did close – particularly at this time of year. The previous and present owners have invested positively in the area over the past few years and become an important part of the local community, as well as being a significant employer of local people. I’m sure many will be shocked by today’s news and will be very sorry to see them go.”

“I will be making my full officer team available to help and assist any potential new operator or developer for this key and strategic site, so that they’re aware of the support we can offer to help make the attraction a local and national success,” he added.
