Lots of spinny rides and thrill seeker roller coasters. Not my cup of tea, not many rides for youngsters that are too old for the baby rides and don't like roller coasters.

We live close to Adventure Island, This Park is a great day out, Only the people who intend to ride have to buy a wristband, Ideal for the younger children. Mum and Dad can just walk around or watch for free, There are also plenty of offers during the summer, It has plenty of fast food takeaways and eat in... More

I wouldn't bother, if you are going for a day at Southend there are better places to visit. Both are expensive, the workers are casual season workers,they are not given adequate training on the rides, can't say much about Southend itself, boring seaside town with not much to do.

I took my nephew on Sunday 2nd November 2014 and i chose the worst day of the year weather wise, but i have to say that the staff in the park made sure that despite the heavy rain that they would still make every child feel like the sun was out, lots of high energy and high fives on every... More

A brilliant little theme park that the kids loved! We took our two little ones on a Sunday when it was a little wet & windy so it wasn't very busy but they had a great time. The fact that an adult could ride for free with the youngest meant she could go on rides with mum or dad when... More

The title of the review says it all, but I have to include at least 100 words. So if say save your money for a better day out elsewhere. Southend it an overpriced day out all round. No wonder british seasides are dead on the ar$e.
