So pleased with Adventure Island lately, this year the staff all seem friendly they are interacting with all the children. And Adventure Inside is my kids new favourite indoor soft play! With the annual passes you get 20% off everything you buy there which makes it great value. For example a half yard of slush refill for the bottles we... More

Came here recently when it was on the hottest days. All the rides were fantastic and great fun. The park itself was very clean even though it was packed. The best part of the day had to the be the amazing staff. I've been to so many parks where the staff couldn't care less. But here they seemed genuinely interested... More

It was pouring with rain and very windy & cold, but, 99% of the rides were open & the staff were fantastic. We couldn't fault the customer service! They were articulate, cheerful, helpful and enthusiastic, despite being as cold and wet as we were! We were so impressed by them that it didn't even matter that we only stayed half... More

Good value,particularly when adults travel free on some rides with children.My 6 year old granddaughter became bolder as the day progressed.The park was clean and waiting times not too long.The staff were kind ,enthusiastic,helpful and welcoming everywhere we went.An absolute credit to the mainly younger generation.

Booked tickets in advance as it's cheaper. Hot sunny day so enjoyed all the rides. Went with teenage son and although there is only one genuine 'big thrill' ride, there was more than enough to have a very enjoyable day. We spent the whole day there and was also able to enjoy the beach, pier and Sea-Life too. Wife and... More

We had an amazing day despite the weather! The staff made even us "the parents" feel part of the fun and games and made us feel like teenagers again. A fantastic day bonding with the children. The staff never grumbled in the rain and kept the fun going. Only downside was the gift shop shutting an hour before the park... More

Great visit. Weather awful but children had a great time no queuing. Prices got online. Thought it was good value as they were able to go on many rides However if it had been a hot day I don't think I would have thought it was such good value. Remember we travelled down by train as well. So quite pricey.... More

We had a flight booked early Sunday 2nd so as staying in southend the Saturday night I planned to visit adventure island. I was so pleased they took Tesco vouchers and set to work ordering £70 of Vouchers for me & my 2 children. I didn't get my husband one as he doesn't like rides. But when we got there... More

for a glorified pier 'theme park' Adventure Island is fantastic and impresses every time. It's like a thorpe park away from home. The Time Machine is fantastic please keep it there. Wristbands are a lil pricey so make sure you're willing to spend the whole day there otherwise you'll be in danger of over-priced theme parks and we've all been... More
