Always good to see PhotoTRs from parks far out - Thanks!

Fantasilandia looks goods with a decent flat collection. And the water at the boat dark ride looks cleaner than most of what I have seen from China. If one ever goes there one has to check if one can bring sandwiches and drinks along into the park to avoid those lines...

Wow, didn't know about Diamonds are Forever! I think I was in Brazil in '75 or '76. Cool.

Yeah, I did notice a sign in front that forbade bringing in food or drink. You could probably sneak it in if you were really determined.

I guess what gets me is that they could make so much more money by improving the service and the quality.

Would it be bad form to share this report with the F&B manager there? I don't want to insult anyone. :?r

And thanks for the love, everyone! GO TPR!

It was one of the best scenes in the movie, too.

"Patricio Mekis was a mayor of Santiago who championed large public infrastructure projects, including Fantasilandia. He died at 50 in 1979 when the balcony collapsed at his summer home."

A little ironic, dontcha think? :lmao:
Coaster Count as of July 2018: 375

All of the chilean theme park lovers we always expect to hear that Fantasilandia will be move to somewhere bigger, but it would be a huge investment and people here doesn't want to pay more for fun, actually they think that the price of the entrance ticket (usd$20 around) is too expensive...
About the food service, yeah, it sucks.
I do not really know how many chilean TPR followers could be here, but I'm a big fan and is fun to know that you guys rent your car at Hertz, cause I work for Europcar.
So next time that any TPR member come to Chile, just send me a message and I'll give you a very good price. Also I know many good places to stay and good tour operators.
Greetings from Chile!!!

Wow, I loved your report, im very surprised of your report because you visited all the parks here in Santiago, a normal tourist only would go to Fantasilandia, but you even visited Mampato, Aventuracenter, and Happyland! those parks are waste of time if you're a coasterlovers, but I see that you came many days here =)

Too bad that you read Chuck´s Food and Wine Festival but you can't expect so much from a south american amusement park ;) Also, Fantasilandia is adding 2 new restaurants for 2014 season! :b Also if you want to avoid the park's food, just bring your own food in a bag (like sandwiches, snacks, beverages, etc.) nobody is going to notice that.

So bad that you didn't ride any of the Tagada's, I hope you come here with TPR and ride any of those Tagada's, try to not ride the one in Aventuracenter, I live near that mall and I go there often, but the last time that I rode that Tagada it wasn't fun at all, the ride operator made the Tagada go super fast and dangerously bumpy

Also let me give you an advice, if you want to come here again, come here in march! (or april), because the weather is nice and Fantasilandia is not so busy as in October. DO NOT come here in july (the weather is cold, and the park is ridiculously busy, I went on July and I rode 6 rides!

I hope one day Fantasilandia buy more acres of Parque O'higgins, because Fantasilandia nowadays doesn't have room for more rides or coasters :(
