We visited with my four-year old son and had a genuinely great time. £20 got us an unlimited ride ticket for him, and I got to ride with him as a "responsible adult" for free! The tickets/rides are all based on the child's height - my son is just over 1m tall and it seemed like he could go on... More

Love taking my son here. He enjoys it. It's easy to get to from London. Staff on the rides are happy and appear to want everyone to enjoy their day. Wristbands are great if you are there all day. And the queues aren't too bad compared to the larger theme parks.

This is a fantastic day out and one of the cheapest fun parks around. Sick of being ripped off at some of these parks where you can queue for hours for a ride or get a fast track pass for at least £70 extra per person. With adventure island there are no big queues even in the summer and if... More

I have visited Adventure Island many times with my young daughter and it has always been excellent. We have bought an annual pass which is great value for money if you visit often. Although the staff on the rides are young, they are amazing with the children and are always really friendly without exception. It's a great place to visit!

Living locally we've been here dozens of times. You don't pay unless you want to go on the rides which is a massive plus when taking grandparents along etc, in comparison with Thorpe Park et al where you HAVE to pay to go in even if you're not going to use the facilities. Rides aren't as epic as you'd get... More
