Fantasy Island (UK Amusement Park)
Fantasy Island is a Family Amusement Park
Amusement Park
in Ingoldmells
Ingoldmells
on the East Coast of England. It sits in the middle of one of the biggest spreads of Holiday Parks in the United Kingdom. Whilst entry to the Park is FREE, customers either pay per ride or purchase an unlimited ride wristband. The pay-per-ride option uses a live ticket, which has a printed bar code that can be scanned to gain access to rides. This option allows credit to be added to the ticket to be able to ride rides in the Park. Rides are priced at £1.50, £2.50, or £4.00 per ride depending on the ride type. Wristbands with a printed barcode on are sold at a cost of £20 for adults. This code must be scanned by a bar code reader which unlocks the turnstile at each ride platform. The design technique means that riders are unable to access the ride unless having first scanned their specially printed day-code

Dreamland Margate
Dreamland Margate
Margate
is an amusement park and entertainment centre based on a traditional British seaside funfair located at Margate, Kent, England. The site of the park was first used for amusement rides in 1880, although the Dreamland name was not used until 1920 when the park's Grade II* listed Scenic Railway wooden rollercoaster was opened. The number of amusements at the park increased during the 1960s and 1970s, and in 1981 the site was sold to the Dutch Bembom brothers, who renamed it "Bembom Brothers White Knuckle Theme Park". The name remained until it reverted to Dreamland in 1990. In the early 2000s, the park began to enter into decline, and a number of rides were sold to other theme parks. The park's owner announced in 2003 that Dreamland would be closed and the site redeveloped, although the listing of the Scenic Railway meant it could not be moved
