Island has come a long way since my first visit over a decade ago,
with the addition of my 3 new coasters, including Rage a major
Sadly though some of the old rides had to go to make room for this.
The park used to have several old fashioned walk through
attractions, the only one that still remains is the Crooked House.
Next to that was one called the Fantasy Dome that was removed when
the Mighty Mini Mega was installed.
As you might have gathered it was a huge dome. You'd
enter and walk around a number of fantasy themed worlds, such as a
polar ice kingdom and a goblin woods.
It wasn't the best example going, with some of it on the wrong side
of the shabby and dated vs. charming and nostalgic line. It was
ride though, it was a shame to see it go. It's a shame it wasn't
around for a few more years as it would have been a good addition to
Save Dreamland project.
The ride hasn't completely left the park though. Some of the models
were relocated to some display booths in the park, paying tribute to
the ride, and a giant spider from the Dome can be seen in the Over
the Hill ride.
