Have not been to Adventure Island for many many years as my last visit was not great but my opinion has now been completely changed. I took two 5 year olds who could use the red and green band rides and there was plenty for them to go on and loved the fact that a parent rides for free if... More

I took my two children (7 & 4) as an appeasement after a long-anticipated visit from friends was cancelled, and quite frankly was dreading it. However it was a huge success, plenty of rides for us all to go on together, really helpful staff and no more than 10 minutes queue per ride, even on a sunny day in the... More

We had a great day out and have done many times visiting Adventure Island. The kids enjoyed the many choices of rides and didn't have to queue for long for any of the rides! As you only buy tickets or wristbands for the people actually going on the rides you don't have an expensive entry fee for spectating. I cant... More

Adventure Island has come on in leaps and bounds, over the last few years. Which means it's even better than it was!! If they're still doing wrist-bands, that's the way to go, if you have the whole day to spend at southend. Alton Towers, it isn't , but it's still a great, fun place to go.

I have known this place for many many years under both names. Has always been a super place to take kids and is always improving, it is now bigger than ever, with plans to expand even further. I have visited with friends and their children and also on business. Haven't for a few years but often pass the place and... More

Or packs a big punch for a compact site. The big adrenal rides aren't there by everything else is with the added bonus of not being locked in to high priced refreshment. Just go out to one of the many alternatives along the sea front or on the high Street and then go back. Get an arm band and enjoy... More
