Adventure Island has certainly got something for everyone. The extensive range of rides available across all ages will keep children and adults entertained for hours on end. The food in the restaurant is also decent, although the queue was a little long but I guess that's to be expected during the holiday period. The park itself is well maintained and... More

It is great that you don't pay to enter. This means that if someone just wants to go on 1 ride they can without feeling you have to go on everything as you have paid the money. Great for any age

Hadn't been for a long time but got dragged there by the kids and was pleasantly surprised. The old place is a lot brighter and friendlier than I remember and the staff were great - friendly and engaging. Well done!

Fun day for all the family. Characters were all around the park-providing entertainment whilst we waited in the worlds shortest queues! Literally 2 mins only! We went on sooo many rides-the wristbands were soo worth it. Rides for each extreme-incredibly daring and for the most delicate child too! Paid extra for go-karts-was fun and well worth it! Chips in a... More

We went to adventure island on Sunday, and there were no queues as it was a bit chilly, yet the staff couldn't be more fun. They interacted all day with visitors, even though you could clearly see they were frozen. This is the nicest day we have had out in a long time.

I cannot recall how many times I have taken my boys age 6 and 11 to Adventure Island, the last time was 05th November, so the park was busier than usual due to fireworks display, but still queues were less than 10 minutes, staff were friendly and value wristbands are worthwhile.
