A great day out, ideal for pre-teens. Excellent value, you pay according height of the child, only pay for those who will take the rides, adults ride free when smaller children need to be accompanied. Good range of rides from the gentle for the toddlers to the stomach turning for the older kids. My favourite feature of adventure island is... More

Adventure Island is a great day out and good value for money. The wristbands are very reasonably priced and there is no entrance fee for those not wishing to go on the rides. It is quite compact so easy to get around, and I have never experienced bad queues in all the times I've been.

Great Park, you only pay for the people going on the rides. My Daughter has mild learning disability and does not like many rides, my other daughter has more severe learning disability and loves all the rides, it is great not to have to pay for myself and older daughter as we do not use the rides, but we buy...

We had a fabulous day at Adventure Island. There's a great selection of fun rides for all ages and the ride operators really engage with the children to make everything fun. Will definitely return. Good deals for tickets online if you can book in advance.

Good fun, ride attendants were great, singing, dancing and generally fun, making lots of fuss of the kids even though it was a miserably cold rainy day. Only downside was the overpriced, poor quality food. Newly opened for the season ran out of hot chocolate on a very cold rainy day, the only hot drink my children will drink!
