“Great day out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

We went to Adventure Island for the first time in ages on the bank holiday weekend. Southend has had a complete facelift and looks amazing. Adventure Island itself is a great day out. We bought our wristbands the night before and got £5 off each one (it must be done the day before or earlier, not valid day of). I just bought for the childrens and we then purchased some tokens too so we could ride the blue rides with out oldest. On all red and green rides, Mum or Dad ride free with each child. We have twins so we could all go on together which was brilliant. We arrived at opening and didn't have to queue for any of the rides! We walked straight on the majority or just had to wait for the next turn. It got a lot busier as the day went on so when we'd had enough we went down to the end of the pier on the train (£10 family return) The facilities were spotless, plenty of bins and lots of security guards strolling around and writing out ID wrist bands for children with parents mobile numbers on. Staff were all very friendly. Over all a fabulous day was had by everyone....the sun even shone all day!! Brilliant!!

“Amazing for kids - well worth the visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

VIsited here on a Saturday and my daughter had an amazing time with her cousins. Lots of varied rides, all of which she loved. The only downsides I would say was the food sold at the fast food stalls, everything was deep fried, including hot dogs, they tasted awful, so I would say avoid eating in there, maybe take your own food or eat outside the park, also the stalls where you could win cuddly toys were so expensive, especially after buying a wrist band, but are oh so tempting to the children of course! Drinks and slush drinks went down well though! Great day out, a jam packed day! Would recommend.

“Great for the kids”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2013

A really good fun day out that the kids love. They never get bored going here and enjoy all the different rides that they have. We have younger and older children and there is something for all of them. The food is also very good here.
