Fantasy Island is an amusement park on Grand Island, New York. Since 2019 the park has been owned by EPR Properties and operated by Six Flags. Fantasy Island is one of the few Six Flags parks that is not currently branded as a Six Flags park, two of the others being Santa's Village and La Ronde.

The park also hosts Six Flags Hurricane Harbor Splashaway Bay.

History

EPR/Six Flags Era (2019-present)

In early 2019, Apex Parks Group sold Fantasy Island to EPR Properties, who hired Six Flags to operate the park. Six Flags hired former Carwardine Parks President Roger Nordenfalk as General Manager.

  • The park was originally going to retheme the kids land into a land themed to the HBO Max series "Looney Tunes Cartoons", but that was put on hold due to COVID. The park announced that the kiddie land retheme was cancelled indefinitely.
