$1 Million Expansion Planned at Martin's Fantasy Island in 2015

Two new rides, one brand new to the park and one a replacement for an existing model, will be built at Martin's Fantasy Island in 2015.  The projects will set the amusement park back a cool $1 million, and should be ready in time for the start of the park's 54th season in May.

Brand new in 2015 is the Rock 'n Roll Musik Express, a classic amusement that spins riders in a circular, undulating path at high speeds.  Even better, the Rock 'n Roll Musik Express will travel both forwards and backwards, upping the thrill level.  To top out the experience there will be high-energy music played during the ride cycle and a brilliant lighting package that will have the ride glowing at night.

The park will also replace their current kiddie free-fall ride, named Jack and the Beanstalk, with a newer version.  The original opened in 2004 and has been popular at the park ever since, but this new version will have a rotating ride carriage as well.

Both the Rock 'n Roll Musik Express and the new Jack and the Beanstalk ride are planned to open with the property on May 9th.
