UK Theme Park Launches World’s First Edible Ride

The theme park, Fantasy Island, owned by UK entertainment company, Mellors Group, has TODAY launched the world’s first edible ride.

The 'Cuthbert the Caterpillar' ride is now covered in deliciously, gooey chocolate, just like it's famous friend Colin.

Guests visiting the park today will be the first to experience the swinging adventure of Cuthbert the Caterpillar, whilst also taking a bite, or two. Fantasy Island also hosts 30+ rides and rollercoasters which aren’t edible yet, including the thrilling Dodgems, and the high-adrenaline Wild River Rapids.

Paige Harris, Head of Marketing at Fantasy Island, said: “We’re really pleased to be the first theme park around the world to launch an edible ride. Fantasy Island prides itself on offering the ultimate fun for every age.

“Plates and cutlery will be handed out to our guests today too, so they can enjoy our tasty caterpillar with absolute ease.”

And with wristband tickets as low as £20, Fantasy Island theme park is the UK hotspot for family fun during the school holidays.
