Theyve brought back the G Force Booster removed 12 years ago.

That's great news if they have, where did you find this out from?

I loved that ride.

Fantasy Island’s website has been updated with their two new attractions for this season, Frisbee and Magic.

Amazing Confusion has also been removed from the website, which suggests it won’t be at the park during 2018.

With it being my local park, I’m hoping to get over to Fantasy Island a few times over the course of the season. I haven’t visited for a few years and by all accounts, the park has improved considerably since Mellors took over so I’m looking forward to seeing the changes for myself.

I've heard that Millennium will be getting a new paint job and colour scheme this year, but since its not on the website, does that mean its not going ahead or being pushed back or what? Also, I’m pretty sad to see that Amazing Confusion wont be opening this year, as its one I was hoping to get on this year, but I guess Frisbee may be a replacement.

The repaint on Millennium is indeed happening, these photos were uploaded to the Fantasy Island Facebook page on 14th January, so I wouldn’t be surprised if it’s finished by now.

The new colours on Millennium look great I think, regardless of what people think with the choice of colour the original paint has looked tired for a very long time. The chain lift system with the brake fin anti roll back is very dirty and there was a lot of grease stains on the track. They had a go at the supports some years ago but now a full repaint will look the part. Let’s hope they are doing a proper job of it preparing the surfaces properly otherwise the original colours will be visible within a few months just like odyssey.

Pictures have been released of Millenium’s new LED trains. I think they look very nice, although a bit too white.

Here are some photos of Millennium’s new trains, courtesy of the Fantasy Island Facebook page

If there’s one thing to be said about them, they are very colourful. Another thing to note is the white LED lights. Out of all the things I thought I’d see from Fantasy Island, I never thought I’d see lights on one of their coaster trains :lol

I don't particularly like the trains, but lights could look cool. Mellors have done a lot of work over the time they've owned the place so hats off to them!

The top of that skull reminds me of a certain Merlin park's branding... ;)

It's not the best marketing ever. Thorpe Park and Cedar Point are on islands, this park is on an old car park!

In that case, shouldn't it be called "Fantasy Car Park"? :lol
