NEWS: Martin's Fantasy Island to celebrate 50th Anniversary

Recommended Posts



Martin's Fantasy Island 50th Anniversary Celebration! 2011 will be the 50th Anniversary season at Martin’s Fantasy Island! In addition to all the current rides and attractions, Western New York’s favorite family theme park will feature NEW thrill rides, and will bring back some of the most popular rides and shows of the last fifty years. Stay tuned for details!


This spectacular NEW thrill ride will come to Martin’s Fantasy Island just in time for the 50th Anniversary in 2011. It will be the first of its kind in North America, and is one of only five in the entire world.


It loops riders up into the sky and down again, all the while spinning them upside down and right-side up, over and over!


The public will have a chance to help name the ride in the spring of 2011.

Awesome! I love crazy flat rides like this. Looks similar to that thing Power Park in Finland had:




You are absolutely right about that Robb. The new ride appears to be a new design out of Technical Park, called "Loop Fighter" based directly on their Pegasus model in the picture. I read somewhere they have a gentlemen's agreement to use that base design from KMG, That base design is identical to KMG's Freakout and Inversion.


I am really surprised and pleased that this little park took a leap with such a new design. I just came across it a few days ago while looking for info about that new monster ride from KMG- Mission Space. I thought this ride looked so awesome and fun. It seems to have come out this year. The fact that the U.S. gets one so quick, ahead of the usual suspects in Europe is so cool, too. Finally.


A search of Youtube seems to show only one other version traveling one in Spain.

This is an artist’s rendering of the new Devil’s Hole ride.


Although we’re bringing back the Devil’s Hole as part of the 50th Anniversary year, this is NOT the original 1975 ride, but rather an updated version.


This ride will replace the Starship 2000. It is not the same machine simply re-painted, it's a NEW machine with slightly different characteristics to match the original 1975 Devil's Hole ride.

So excited for this! Unfortunately I wasn't able to make it to Fantasy Island last summer, but there is no way I'll be able to stay away from this. I'm going to be thinking hard for a name that fits this... besides ZomgCrazyScreamMonster PhD.
