Polk City, Florida -- After 18 years, Bay area aviation attraction Fantasy of Flight officially closed to the public Monday morning.

Sunday was the last day for folks to visit the facility in Polk City.

Fantasy of Flight owner Kermit Weeks issued a letter to employees back in March saying a "misperception" by the public of the attraction's purpose led to his decision change the facility from a tourist attraction to a place that restores and maintains historic planes. However, the facility can still be used for private events like weddings, birthday parties, meetings and corporate events.

The Wing Walk Air Confidence Course and Zip Line will remain as well.
