Good value day out. Lots of rides for all ages, although very busy when we went, so did queue for a bit. Staff at the park are so helpful and friendly. Would definately recommend!

“Its such a good day out!”
Reviewed 20 August 2014 via mobile

We love it here. Its now our 3rd visit to Adventure Island and again it didn't disappoint.
You can buy wristbands that get you on the rides but we purchase the separate tickets at £1-80 each. We get these cos my two don't like the thrill rides.
Again we've were impressed on how clean and tidy the park is & how extremely friendly and helpful the staff are. A big thank you to the lady staff member who told my daughter & I of a quieter set of toilets.

Thank Karen G

“Unfair rules.”
Reviewed 20 August 2014

Took my two granddaughters to adventure island today, they both wanted a go on the stall that you hook a duck out of the water and every ones a winner! Receiving a small soft toy?
We asked for two goes each at a cost of £4 for two goes total £8.
The staff on the stall then informed us that although they would allow the children to have two goes each only one of them could have a prize,however if I paid £4 for one child and then came back separately with the other child and paid £4 they to would win a prize. How stupid won't be going back.

“Excellent day out!”
Reviewed 20 August 2014

This was our first visit to Adventure Island and Southend. We visited with our 19 year old son who has special needs. The staff were all very friendly and welcoming. My husband was able to purchase a "carers" wristband for half the full ticket price, which was very helpful. We all had a great time. There are lots of rides for all ages and abilities with good access.

“Another brilliant day out”
Reviewed 19 August 2014 via mobile

We decide to go to southend today as its near and very cheap compared to other theme parks, and we werent dissapointed. All the staff were superb in getting the kids involved in the rides,always happy to chat and always smiling and happy .they are a real credit to the park .if you have not been before then u are in for a surprise .the queues are minimal .most we queued was 10 minutes , and theres loads of various rides for all ages .the wristbands are excellent value , considering they are open 11hours during summer .preorder online to save more money .the other good thing is that the staff dont try and harrass u to play the games to win cuddly toys .i think most other bigger theme parks need to look at adventure island and maybe take a leaf out of there book .:-)
