Fantasy Island Set To Open May 13

Niagara’s Amusement & Water Park To Continue Family-Friendly Tradition

GRAND ISLAND, NY, May 4, 2017 – Fantasy Island is excited to announce that their 2017 season will begin Saturday, May 13. This season will be the first full season under the ownership of Apex Parks Group, which acquired the park last season from longtime owners Martin DiPietro and his family.

“We’re excited to carry on the tradition that Marty and the whole DiPietro family built here at Fantasy Island,” said Len Synor, the park’s spokesperson. “The changes that we’re making for 2017 focus on improving the Guest experience.”

Fantasy Island will open a new arcade next to the popular “I Got It” game, and will also offer new games in the Galaxy of Games building.

Guests will have several new food items to choose from. Beef on Weck and personal pizza will make their debut this summer, as well as some local craft beer selections. And the restaurants will now be air conditioned to help our Guests beat the heat.

One of the additions to the park that Guests will notice are cabanas in the water park. These will be available to be rented on a daily basis through the park’s new website, Each cabana comes with chairs, a table, locker access and bottled water to keep you cool.

Synor added, “We encourage everyone to check out our new website. They’ll be able to see the new offerings, as well as purchase Season Passes & daily tickets. In fact, the prices online will offer a significant savings over the Ticket Booth price.”
