I agree. The last time I played was in Sept. 2019 and I even took a few pictures because I was surprised that they would have let parts of it deteriorate so much. There were several holes that had ripped & worn carpet. Other decorations weren't working, like the white grates, which at one time, had bubbling water which you needed to putt through. I can only imagine the current condition if f they haven't done anything since then.

Winter Summerland has been open when Blizzard Beach has been closed in the winter. So it's not totally unheard of.

These pavilions were demolished for the Swan Reserve (formerly The Cove) hotel project.

When we were there last the Fantasia pavilion next door where conventions used to be at looked in rough shape also.

With nba and water parks closed, is this a trick to not refund certain passes / tickets? On the other hand, I’m sure they won’t be running extra busses, just adding a stop to existing routes. So they are really only paying to staff the course.

Winter Summerland will close again in January as Fantasia reopens.

I am surprised that the mini-golf is doing enough business to make it work running buses to it.

So, are they going to run buses to Winter/Summer or more likely they will just make a stop on the way to and from AK?

I hope they take the down time for Fantasia Gardens and give it some love. It was in pretty rough shape when I was there last November.

Not that I know of, it is close but isn't planned to be removed or anything.

That's what I was thinking. Also, I love Fantasia Gardens and sincerely hope nothing else is afoot. Yes, I see the reopening date, I just pray this won't be our hippo and crocodile's last dance. Last chance... for love.

I wonder if this will coincide with the start of whatever holiday offerings are coming this year.

Is Fantasia closed / needing to close soon because of swan construction? It seems odd to choose the one further away from anything that’s open.
