40 Years of memories family community

celebrating
40 years of fun!

To our Guests

As we proudly commemorate the 40th anniversary of Fantasy Island Amusement Park, we find ourselves immersed in the incredible memories spanning not just our ownership of the past six years but a lifelong connection that began four decades ago.

From my childhood days conquering Roller Boller and eagerly persuading my parents for more quarters to play games, to creating cherished moments with our three boys, this park is woven into the very fabric of our existence. Being custodians of Fantasy Island and all these memories is deeply personal, a testament to the never-ending love we hold for this place that has been a constant source of joy, tradition, and community.

As we mark this milestone, we invite you to join us in celebrating 40 years of fun by sharing your favorite memories of Fantasy Island with us. We look forward to revisiting the wonderful moments of the past four decades and are excited to create new ones as we embark on the next forty years and beyond!

With heartfelt gratitude,
Brian and Petrina Wainwright and Family
