I'm going to admit, me and my friend are in our 20's and we came here for a great day out before she moved to Australia and we left with a day to remember forever. Some of the smaller rides are really fun, I think the staff thought we were a little crazy but we were able to take so... More

This is a must for our daughter whenever visiting Southend. It has a range of different rides from red to stomach-churning blue band. Compared with other locations where you pay per ride, it is really good value. Plenty of eating possibilities too. My tip: stay in the Ilfracombe (also reviewed by me) and ask for Adventure Island tickets. We always... More

we have been to Adventure Island numerous times & my 2 boys (now aged 9 & 11) still have a great time. Brilliant value for money, half the queues of the major theme parks so they get on twice the number of rides!

Thought we would pop in to the free entry park to take our 3 year old on a couple of rides......were pleasantly surprised by the park being clean and tidy with staff clearly having been through some fairly reasonable training considering that they are probably students / low retention. Genuinely impressed and well worth the visit.

This was our fifth visit in three years to adventure island. We have two kids age 9 & 12, they both absolutely loved the rides. My 9 year old son said that it was so much better than chessington. I think this was down to no queuing on the rides and the fact the the rides are close to each... More

We took our almost 5 year old daughter to adventure and she loved it. She's 1 metre 10 cms so was tall enough for a Green Band which we had purchased the day before for £16 online. Being below 1.2m means that she couldn't go on the 7 or 8 scariest rides but they would be too scary for her... More

I bought my husband and two sons tickets for the last day of the school holidays. Booking on line worked perfectly as ever and this time I also added a dodgems ticket. Whilst not a cheap day out, this represents excellent value against some of the other theme parks. There's something for all ages and plenty of food options nearby.... More

We came here last Saturday to celebrate my nephew's 5th birthday. The one thing that stands out is the enthusiasm of the staff that work here. We took our 2 years old daughter on the baby safari train and the two girls that were manning the ride were so friendly and made the children smile and laugh. I always love... More

My children enjoy regularly visiting Adventure Island and as I only see them every four weeks, it is a nice treat day to do at this time of year. The wristbands are very expensive unless you book online and get a discount, but my issue with my visit this weekend is the substandard, overpriced food. T avoid wasting time to... More
