The new owner has updated, cleaned up, and painted the park buildings etc.. Still needs to train ride operators a little better to be more congenial. Great price for Season Tickets, includes free parking.

Think of everything that could go terrible and it explains fantasy island. The rides were hardly running, water park disgusting, wave pool never open, kiddy park a complete joke, dirty and run down. And that staff? They could care less about your kids. Most disappointing...More

This was a big letdown on our New York theme park trip, it's basically a glorified carnival besides the Silver Comet roller coaster which is quite good. The rest of the park is basically garbage.

I have read and understood all of these complaints about Fantasy Island. But please keep in mind that it is a wonderful place for families with young children. It's not crowded, no long Waits, and the rides are all very tolerable. Not to mention a...More

I have been going here for more than 40 years. This amusement park has always been a wonderful park for kids. The rides are great and so is the water park. Highly recommend, however, bring some of your own snacks. Can be a little expensive

This could be a good place to take the kids if they would not have so many rides closed. Very disappointing to buy tickets and half the park be closed
