Great place for the kids to enjoys the thrills of rides. Staff are exceptionally friendly and good humoured. Used my Tesco vouchers so made it affordable. If you were stopping all day, wristbands would be cheaper, however if just stopping for a few rides would be better to buy tickets.

I had previously worked on site at Adventure Island but it was always in the winter when the park was closed. It seemed like it was a good place reading the reviews and as we were up that way we decided to give it a go. We obtained some discounted tickets through a corporate scheme costing £9.50 per child, as... More

This place provided around 7 hours of non-stop fun for my grand-children aged 9, 12, and 14 years. Relatively compact area,so they could ride almost non-stop particularly as we purchased the bands on-line. Good choice for all ages and plenty of eating places as well. As entry is free you can go outside for a break, if preferred, and then... More

Haven't been here in years, what a great park now, bit dear for the rides, but buying a wrist band helps! shame our daughter was over the height for us to go free with her on the rides! Very well organised, The food was good value, and toilets was very clean. The park was busy, but did not have to... More

Took My Grandson to Southend for weekend, went to Adventure Island he had an amazing time. Loved the Go Karts & Dodgems as that is all he will go on. The Lads that were taking care of these rides were amazing so happy with all the kids all the time. They were also strict with heights & safety. Lovely weekend... More

Took our 9 year old here on the weekend, and a great time was had by all!! In his opinion much better than Legoland, Chessington etc..The queues were never long and we had enough time to do the whole park and then go on most of the rides again. Great value for money, especially with the buy 1 get 1... More

The lids live this place. All the staff are really attentive and genuinely seem happy to be working there which is a nice change. We went twice over the weekend - both times after 6pm so really good value as well. Some of the bigger rides aren't too "scary" but, it is what it is.. Recommended.

We often visit here as a large family group and for us this means Grandparents/Parents can enjoy the odd ride or just watch the children without having to pay an expensive entrance fee. Additionally if you purchase a small child's band (red) or a green but your child is under 1.2 meters a adult can ride free.....compared to the major... More

We loved this place (I used to come as a child). The ride bands are excellent value especially if you arrive after 6pm when they are half price. Also, parents/responsible grown up over 14 must ride with a child on a red/green band. This meant we were able to go on all the rides free of charge with our daughter.... More
