A sunny Saturday in May meant a family trip to Southend-on-sea including Adventureland. Free to get in entry to rides is by pre purchased tickets or if you want to stay longer a red/green/blue wristband for entry to rides. A definite saving if you intend to go on more than one or two rides and there is definitely plenty to... More

Spent the day here with the grandchildren, £43 for a red and green band, rides were limited and seemed to be overpriced for pay as you go, some things not included which additional payment required, great indoor soft play area, wasn't told socks were required as policy and guess what, yep, had to buy them, the only soft play area...

Adventure Island is a funfair in the old English sense, rather than a theme park - but it lacks the tatty appearance of most travelling fun fairs. The rides are modern, well-maintained and some of them are highly scary - I speak as one who has an extremely daredevil granddaughter; we two are the only members of our family who... More

What an amazing park! Haven't been here for ages but every time we visit it gets better and better with great rides and attractions. Plenty of amusements for all ages and all with a sea view nearly. Great fun..... highly recommend.

Went to adventure island and took my great nephews and nice. Spent the whole day there. Time just went so fast. Lot for them all to do and of course I had to have a go on some rides with them. They found it quit amusing when I came off feeling a bit wobbly when they just wanted to go... More

We have visited Southend's adventure island many times and the level of customer service has always been Phenomenal. We always eat in the jungle jive cafe which is always clean and tidy even during peak times. The staff running the rides are always cheerful and make the experience much more enjoyable. We will definitely be coming back.

We visited Adventure Island again at the weekend and it really didn't let us down. There were many new rides this year along with all the old favourites. I didn't queue for more than 5-10 minutes for even the busiest rides and enjoyed them all (although Rage should be reserved for those of the braver persuasion). The staff were all... More

There's a great mix of rides and things to do for the kids and although it was a Sunday afternoon and the weather was great the queues were not long and the kids managed to get on all the rides plenty of times. Price wise it is pretty good value for money the only downside is the soft play area... More
