  • Great place for children 90cm or less and 115cm or more. Soft play, arcades and rides. Good value and the staff are very nice. The rides are a bit weather beaten but we love them still!
  • I've been going to this park for over twenty years in its many incarnations, now bringing my own children. There's a good variety of rides from tame trains for little ones to daring coasters for older thrillseekers! The young staff always surprise me with their enthusiasm and helpfulness. One of the best features of the park is completely free entry - you only pay to ride. This is great for those members of the family just having a day out. They're not ripped off for just entering the grounds like most other places. Ticket prices on the day can be expensive, but online prices are better. Consider an annual pass if you intend to make more than one trip - the 20% discount in food and drink adds up fast. A great day out with the backdrop of Southend-on-Sea. It is sited right on the seafront so bring a coat if it's a windy day!
  • We attend adventure island quite often as it's the nearest but by far cheapest theme park to us being in dartford. We love the fact you can pay as you go whether you fancy one ride or ten. If you do want to go on ten or more I'd recommend a band that enables you to go on as many rides as you want saving you money in the meantime. It doesn't stop there, with the park being right on the sea front your also entertained with great views, arcades and food.
  • Had an amazing evening visit. Love the half price wristbands from 6pm, especially as there were 6 of us! All of the staff we saw were incredibly enthusiastic, well-trained and made it even more fun to be there! Good selection of rides, even this seasoned roller coaster nut was happy, as were the less thrill seeking members of the party. 100% recommendation and will be back for sure!
  • Kids really enjoyed the day. Great rides. Most of the staff were excellent. Maybe take a packed lunch if you go. At the food outlet, the staff member pulled out a huge piece of gum from her mouth before speaking to me and proceeded to handle the food without washing her hands. I hope the food standards improve because this is a great family attraction.
