A great day out for the children of all ages. No queues at all or less than 10 minutes max! The staff are young and most friendly and always happy to help. I always book online & that gives excellent value for money. Remember no entry fee, you only pay for the riders! There are plenty of seats/benches to just... More

Adventure Island is a really fun place to be, (if you like theme parks that is.) It is very busy at night but the rides are great! My favourite was the Rage. It is pretty pricey, I just don't like theme parks that much!

I have been coming to this site for over 40 years firstly for me as a child, then my children and now the child in me again with my little ones. Its fun and cheap and makes you laugh - a good two to three hours out on the seafront.

This is my most favorite theme park of all time as it has great rides and bands at a reasonable price, plus if you don't want to ride any rides, you don't have to pay!. A 5/5 to it!

Best rollercoaster place in Southend! The admission inside (as to look and observe with mini games) is free, but you'll have to take tickets for the rides. Try Rage, a fantastic rollercoaster!

A great day out for the children. The queues are less then 10 minutes. The staff are young and friendly and happy to help. We have an annual pass that gives excellent value for money. There are a number of cheap and clean places to sit down and eat or to just grab a treat to eat as you walk... More

My grandchildren come to stay with me in Leigh on Sea every summer and this is always top of their list of places to visit. No entry fee is great ,you buy a wristband and go on what you want. My one complaint is the cost is a bit high when you are on a budget

My family and I have visited adventure island several times over the years. My mum is not a fan of roller coasters so she sits at the sidelines which is very nice because usually in places like Thorpe park even if u don't go on the rides you must pay to get in however in this amusement park you can...
