The Air Maxx 360 had been due to start operating this week on the town’s seafront.

But after issues with certification the Pleasure Beach decided to not operate the ride - and instead the Skegness amusement park Fantasy Island has announced the ride will run there.

Pleasure Beach boss Albert Jones said: “Unfortunately, the paperwork required to be able to open the ride was not all in order.”

The amusement park had been chasing the documentation required for operating the ride in the UK but 5pc was still missing, he said.

“We’re disappointed,” Mr Jones said.

But the park is not mulling over the loss.

Mr Jones promised that staff are “busy” trying to get another attraction arranged for the May bank holiday.

“We are looking at something very similar,” he said.
