Staff were absolutely brilliant so enthusiastic really made the kids day fantastic, even though weather wasn't great. You can get cheap deals on wrist bands if you have a look around on the net. A good day had by all.

Getting to Adventure Island at Southend-On-Sea is easy. There is plenty of parking on hand. This park caters for all ages and is lots of fun. Eating at and around the park is easy and you have a wide choice. The price is reasonable and what you would usually pay else where,

A really terrific surprise as we had no idea just how extensive this attraction was. The wrist band deal was essential and was exceptional value for money for our two grandchildren ( 6 and 8 ). The variety of attractions meant that there were numerous rides available for both , and indeed it allowed our elder grandchild to experience quite... More

Went there 2 weeks ago and while we were upside down on a ride a part flew out of it and my friend asked the caretaker to check it while his answer was"it's okay" then she showed him what fell out as it almost hit her he immediately stopped our ride and we were hanging in the air for 5... More

Visited late in the day with 2 young children. You do need all day to make the most of the wristbands for rides. Very good system with 3 different colour bands at different prices, all based on your height. With the smaller children with red bands, parents ride free. There is a good range of rides for all ages

We came to Southend on a whim and came to Adventure Island for a peek. At first we were put off by the wrist band prices, starting at £18 for a rider under 1m. These can be bought cheaper online, but even so we were only planning on spending an hour or so here. Reading more into it, you can... More

Always the same quality day out when we go out to Adventure Island. The people in charge of rides are all so interactive with everyone on the ride. We had lunch at the Jungle Jive cafe and I must say that the burgers that we had were the best at that price for a long time. Mini Golf was also... More
