This review is for adventure inside. Went on Friday and paid for a wristband for the kids, There are 5 small rides and a play area, everything else you have to pay extra for. The place was cold so in the winter will be horrible. The drinks were a total rip off, they don't even sell normal coke which is... More

This place is a mecca for chavs, low life's and East End down and outs. You'll struggle to find anyone here who isn't on the social. Fight through the tattoo covered lay abouts and head towards Thorpe Bay for some sanity and more classy things to do. Unfortunately, South End and it's amusements now attract little other than the kind... More

I took my son and a friend to Adventure Island on Sunday 19/4/15 as a treat, I booked the tickets on-line which was really easy and worth doing. The bands allowed the boys to go on the rides as many times as they wanted and they did not have to queue for ages, We were there for 5 hours apart... More

I was a bit sceptical about going to adventure island or as I remember it as a child Peter pans. I remember it being dirty and expensive but when we arrived at adventure island I first noticed music playing on entry which was nice. Prices were reasonable and well displayed and the best part mum and dads ride free if... More

My boyfriend and I fancied a trip to the coast for the day without the kids!!( rare- and wanted to make the most of it!) Loads to do if you have kids but not really a couple place, we had fun though - but more of interest for your younger ones!

Would recommend a Saturday as less busy than Sunday. They have a new indoor area with some new rides and a fabulous soft play area...one of the best I have seen. The greatest thing... More

We live and visit this place quite often. Our 6-year old absolutely loves it! There's lots of great rides and the staff are really lovely. It's also good value for money, especially if you get an annual ticket.
