The only down side to this fun day out was the toilets. They were overcrowded (not enough of them) the disabled ONE was flooded and while queuing, mothers with young ones they needed to keep together for safety reasons were complaining at the lack of the facilities. Really the only disappointment of a GREAT family day out.

Another fantastic family visit!! Used Tesco vouchers so only had to put a few pounds towards the ride bands for a brilliant day out, only down side is over priced food and drinks on the park and along the seafront, which is a shame. A few minutes walk into town and much more reasonable prices.

We had our grandchildren over and took them last night and as it was after 6pm paid half price for a wristband. We bought one upgrade for £5 which enabled two of them to ride the dodgems as many times as they liked which is real value for money. The staff on the rides have been well chosen. They were... More

This place is worth a visit whilst in southend, it's also a good place to take the kids if your local. You can't really be disappointed with this place as it's good value and has great variety. Keep up the good work guys.

We took our kids aged 8 and 3 to Adventure Island and they absolutely loved it. There really is something for everyone of all ages and thrill levels. I have to say the staff are really great with the kids, friendly and keeping them entertained. We'll be back next year!

This is an iconic part of any day out at Southend, and having been here in its former life as Peter Pan's Playground in the 90s and 00s but I haven't been since it changed its name. We returned with our little one (nearly 3) this weekend, and were very impressed by what it offers for younger kids. She was... More
