I have taken my grandkids there on numerous occasions and the indoor part is great as it is open all year . When in season the outdoors is clean, with many attractions and reasonably priced....well worth a visit when you are in Southend

Brilliant family day out, good value from 6.00pm onwards for the wristbands. Staff make it a fun time for the kids. I buy my granddaughter a yearly pass each year.

Been going here for a few years now. Always have a good time. Strolling the prom and riding the rides. Sadly the kids want more adventure now so may not be back for a while. Wrist bands to ride are a little expensive but the queues aren't massive so you do get to ride many times. If you don't ride... More

Not many rides and it's very geared to small children. Expensive to buy tickets and the rides cannot be paid for in cash. If you are travelling more than 20 minutes for this, chose an alternative day out

Great selection of rides and queues not too bad, expensive if it wasn't for half price bands and food places let it down. But great day out with kids and adventure indoors is a brilliant addition.

I hate kids play zones - cost a fortune to get in with expensive meal/drinks adding to the misery. So with great foreboding, as a reward for walking down the pier, took three grandkids to Adventure Island 'Inside'. I had £30 of Tesco tokens (previously boosted up x4 from £7.50) and was surprised to find (contrary to website) that you... More

I came here with my brother and sister a while ago and they loved it. The young staff where enthusiastic and engaging on every ride. A lot more so than when I was a kid. I did think a lot of it was very overpriced and all of the arcade games was just another way to try and make more... More
