Photo TR: Fantazy Land, Alexandria, Egypt.


Recommended Posts

OK,

I have just got back from a trip to Alexandria in Egypt. Apart from arriving the day that the riots started and the place being dirty as hell we had a nice few days away.

I had heard that there was a kiddie credit at a place called Fantazy Land but could not find anyone who had been there. Anyway We finally found the park and it was the worst run park I have ever been to.

On the net I had found that the entry fee was 7 Egyptian Pounds, around $1.50. However when I got there they said it was 13 Pounds. I went back to the car as or whole group was going to go in, but when we got back to the pay window it was now 30 Pounds each, Anyway, I decided to go in on my own to get some photos.

One thing to note was that when I paid my 30 Pounds I was actually given 3 tickets with 10 Pounds written on them, something tells me I was ripped off. lol

 

Anyway onto the photos.

This was a strange concrete box in the middle of the park.

This is just inside the entrance Plaza.

I was told no rides were closed today, that was a lie!

The entrance was quite nicely themed.

From the state of the sign I got a rough idea of what to expect.

Wow man, that park looks very dirty and abandoned. I'm going to egypt this summer and plan to go to a park by the name of DreamPark. Supposedly they have an SLC and a couple other coasters, but hopefully it isn't as bad as "Fantazy" land. It looks like it might have been a decent place at one point. I hope nobody associates this park with the way things are in Egypt, because there are some very beautiful places to go to and even a few good parks. The last time I was in Alexandria was almost two years ago, and it is really a nice place to visit. Anyways, great PTR, it was very intersting for me to read through.

 

Have you ever been to DreamPark? I would like to know if there are similarly crappy conditions or not.

 

BTW, that price raising stuff happened to me all the time in Egypt last time. The taxis are the worst; if you even look a little touristy or they hear you speaking english, the price will go up alot. Fortunately even then it's never very much.

i think you are the bravest person alive.

 

Would you have actually ridden the topspin if it was working?? I probably would have run a mile.

 

Did you pop round to customer service and complain like a CP fan boy at SFMM??

I did not complain as I think I got away lightly with only paying 30 pounds and not getting my camera knicked. I did not ride anything and was quite pleased. The guy at the ticket desk thought it was hillarious that I would pay 30 pounds and go in on my own.

I was pleased to go alone as our party had an 8 year old child whom I am sure would have wante o ride something.

Wow. That place makes Nara Dreamland look like a 5-star High Class British Porn Star resort!

 

It's so crap I want to go there right now!!!!

I think it would rank up there with my favorite ever theme parks. Just for novelty value. The fact that I was genuinely scared when a stall holder came up to me and tried to persude me to play a shooting game means it beats Dubai parks hands down.
