The famous LBI amusement park Fantasy Island held a ribbon cutting Tuesday to welcome the new owners, the Wainwright family. Residents from the LBI region came to celebrate the reopening of the park and were greeted with snacks, refreshments and free access to the rides and arcade.

“Ever since Fantasy Island has been here, I have been coming,” Brian Wainwright said. “I have a passion and love for this place, and when I saw it was for sale, I immediately decided to buy it to make sure it stayed.”

The family has new ideas for the park, but, for the most part, it will remain the same.

“Part of what makes this place so special is that a lot of it has been the same forever. We want to try to maintain the nostalgia that the park has and keep families coming here,” he explained.

Be sure to make a trip to the Island’s oldest and only amusement park this summer. For more information on park hours and upcoming events, visit fantasyislandlbi.com. —J.M.
