Fantasy Island has been a summer staple for Western New York families for several years and this year, the park is unveiling new features and updating your favorites!

Fantasy Island's opening day is Saturday May 5th, opening each weekend until June 17th, when they will open seven days a week.

Staff is working around the clock to prepare the park for opening, running safety checks, cleaning the grounds after a long winter and making sure everything is up and running.

The 2018 brings a handful of changes to the park, including the restoration of a pair of water slides, a new game/ride hybrid, new menu items like funnel cake fries and a few Fairtytale Forest attraction.

The Fairytale Forest will include a new show, activities and a ride. 

Season passes are available for the same price as one-day admission when you buy three or more. You can find more information here.
