With 4 kids wristbands would cost a fortune, but with the 1/2 price offer after 6pm and the late night opening in summer, you get to enjoy it for less. Staff are friendly and helpful. We try to come here at least once a year as we now live 300+ miles away having lived locally up until 2002. It has... More

We really loved this place! My 6 year old son enjoyed it thoroughly as there was so much on offer for his age and the queues were far better than most theme parks. We used tesco clubcard points to get our tickets so it was a bargain. Only gripe was due to the fact it gesture by height and not... More

Brilliant day out.....took my son and 4 of his friends, all 15.....fantastic day!! GLORIOUS WEATHER!! The only thing lacking was a few drinking water fountains....passed this idea onto AL who said they would pass on to Directors for consideration....on a hot day best to take a good stash of water.

Visited here with a friend in July. Whilst I didn't like Southend much, I did think Adventure Island was pretty good, very clean (especially the toilets.. Fantastic). Good day out for kids, plenty to do.

Great place to visit, we spent 2 afternoons here with our 6 year old. Purchased set number of tokens but wrist bvands certainly excellent value if here all day! Food and drink seem expensive, we ate up on high street up the steps before heading in. Great choice of rides indoors and outdoors for all ages.

Our annual trip to Adventure Island was another great day out. Eleven of us, ranging from 10 to 61 had a great time. Whilst the weather may not have been the best (a couple of rain interludes) the day was still very enjoyable. There were not may queues, and it never took more than 5 minutes to get on a... More
