"Fantastic Voyage" is a 1980 funk single by Dayton, Ohio-based group, Lakeside. The song hit number one on the R&B chart and was the group's only entry on the Billboard Hot 100, where it peaked at number fifty-five.[1]

In 1994, hip-hop artist Coolio sampled the Lakeside song for his own hit of the same title.

The song appears in the Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas video game soundtrack, on the fictitious radio station Bounce FM.

The song was performed by Cedric the Entertainer, Vanessa Williams, Bow Wow and Solange Knowles during a talent show in the movie Johnson Family Vacation.
