Excellent variety of attractions for all ages. Good pricing system based on height. Expensive to eat and drink but that's to be expected and you can go elsewhere. Kids loved it and even on the very hot day on Wednesday the queues were not long. Definitely better than standing for hours in Chessingon/Thorpe Park etc. Top tip, our hotel offered... More

Had an excellent day out today at Adventure Island. A last minute decision after seeing 2 hours queues the previous day at Chessington. We managed almost every ride some twice here in a day and we didn't even stay all day long. There are lots of rides for all ages. Longest queue we had was maybe just over 10 minutes,... More

We spent more than 8 hours at the park yesterday with a 9,7 and 4 year old. It was great fun! The rides were fantastic and there was very little waiting in line. I was very impressed with the excellence of the enthusiastic local staff and the maintenance of the park- every light bulb was working and the toilets were... More

We were two adults, two teens and one 6 yr old. The wristband system is excellent, the unlimited rides and manageable queues are fabulous; but this is all magnified and made brilliant by the delightful staff - without exception - warm, friendly, helpful, enthusiastic. They make the tamest rides into real fun for the younger kids and they keep an... More

We took four nine year olds here yesterday, it was busy but the queues weren't too bad and the staff made the rides fun with their chanting and high fives! It is excellent value for money and it now has an indoor ball park for little ones.

What a FANTASTIC day we all had to Adventure Island! Two adults and two children, 5 and 9, arrived at 11am and stayed until 10pm!! We bought our tickets online and then paid £5 extra on day for unlimited rides on bumper cars. It was during half term but on average we queued for no longer than 5 minutes. Staff... More
