Skegness attraction bought by major International Leisure Group

International events and leisure group, Mellors Group, brings stability to Fantasy Island

Management at Skegness tourist attraction, Fantasy Island, have confirmed that the resort has been bought by major international leisure group, Mellors Group. The news signals positive change for the attraction, which was placed into administration on 4 August 2014.
Mellors Group, who already own a leisure park in Dubai – coincidentally also called Fantasy Island –are responsible for popular events including London’s Hyde Park Winter Wonderland, Nottingham Winter Wonderland, Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park Beach, The Nottingham Beach and the siting of giant Observation wheels around the UK. They now intend to bring a lot of their family’s showmanship to the East Coast. The Group, who is also familiar with caravan park operations within the UK, brings vast and varied experience to the Skegness resort.

The group’s ownership of the 41-acre freehold property is expected to transform the current leisure offering, which already delivers record-breaking roller coasters and Europe’s largest seven-day market, as well as 340 static caravan pitches.
Key members of staff have remained in place throughout the administration period and have helped to guide Fantasy Island through this important transition. During that time, the site has been updated and refreshed, operations have been reviewed, new offers and facilities introduced and last holiday season saw an increase in visitors and turnover – proving that the British seaside, and Fantasy Island, still holds appeal for local residents and visitors from further afield.
James Mellors, Managing Director of the Mellors Group said; “It is a very exciting time for our company as we have seen strong growth in our events business throughout the region and abroad. We pride ourselves on delivering the highest standard of attractions and we have some interesting investment plans and new rides for Fantasy Island in the near future.”
