Collect your ticket to a fantasy world of entertainment... you're in for a thrilling rollercoaster of a ride, mixing white-knuckle spills and family friendly attractions.

It is Ingoldmells that beckoned Billy Butlin way back in 1936 when he was looking to launch his holiday empire and is celebrating 80 years of entertaining visitors. Today Butlins is a very different experience. Chic New England style apartments with wide-screen TVs, whirlpool baths and big name stars. The latest development is Splash Water World where there are thrilling flumes and rides as well as quieter paddling areas perfect for little ones.

Close to the beach is Fantasy Island which guarantees a real adrenaline buzz on some of the country's most awesome rides as well as less fearsome fun for youngsters or for those who like fun at a gentler pace. For a little retail therapy Fantasy Island is also home to Europe’s largest seven-day market.

Another great family attraction is Hardy’s Animal Farm where adults and children can meet, feed and make friends with the animals. There's also a great outdoor playground and indoor playbarn for children to burn off some energy whilst having heaps of fun.
