By far the best feature of this theme park is the fact that for smaller children you can ride with them WITHOUT having to pay for a ticket yourself as an adult. That's what adds a massive expense for going to other, larger parks; especially so if all you want to do is accompany them inside the park! That's another... More

Never been here before, but took our kids here, aged 6 and 3 today! Great place, fairly priced and not really busy! Will get here earlier next time! Clean and tidy with a nice variety of rides, not a massive place to walk around and didn't queue for any rides, which is a godsend with young children! The real plus... More

We have just returned from a day out at Adventure Island. I'll be honest, having not been there since I was a child some 30 years ago, I was not really expecting much and my wife and I actually 'psyched' ourselves up before getting out the car and taking our 3 year old twins to 'the fun fair'. We needn't... More

Had a great day out with kids of all ages 4-50+ ! great value and really good that adults ride for free with the 'little ones'. Staff at all the rides were fantastic with the kids and made the day even more enjoyable.

Just had a really enjoyable few hours here. Kids aged 5 & 6 managed to go on quite a few of the rides. All fairly reasonably priced. What made it for us was the friendly staff, high fives on and off the rides encouraging them to scream and throw their hands in the air. Good to see people enjoying their... More

I've been here quite a few times and it's a great place for people of all ages, there is plenty to do and see. There are plenty of places to eat and drink nearby as well and is perfect for us as we had children with us

Our second visit to Adventure Island on Sunday. It's a great day out for kids (and big kids) of all ages. Unlike some of the biggest and well known theme parks, the rides are all close together and there are generally only very small queues for each. Our two loved racing round and round for another go on even the... More

kids love it and best yet grandparents don't have to pay to watch the kids enjoy themselves unlike most other theme parks. Great value especially if you invest in a yearly pass.
