4.3
#1 of 8 in Theme Parks in Essex
Serving up loads of excitement for visitors of all ages, Adventure Island features over 40 rides and attractions.

Families looking for a tamer kind of entertainment can ride the Green Scream, designed to look like a crocodile, with no inversions and extremely gentle drops.

  • There were 10 of us, raging from 11 to 62, and we all had another great day out for our annual visit. Great rides, with a range of scary-ness levels. (suitable for all ages) Short queues, and sometime...  more »
  • We visited on a Sunday and arrived late in the afternoon - 2 pm. Surprisingly we were able to find parking on the seafront. It was not overly warm so that could have helped. The park was busy but you ...  more »
  • 4 of us played crazy golf here and whilst the course was good fun and reasonably priced you continually had people trying to play when you were on the hole.  more »

  • Fantastic place for both adults and children, the theme park is a little expensive especially if you have several children. Shop owners and restaurant staff are so friendly and welcoming. plenty of places to park too and not overly priced.Overall a great day out. Dogs allowed on beach after 1st October too my little pooch loved her first experience.
  • We have annual passes which are fantastic value. Our two girls never grow tired of coming. The staff are so interactive it adds to the overall experience. A girl named Gracie was particularly helpful and kind to our little one's. Thank you for yet another great day out yesterday 👍👍
  • Love it here and that's just me. Kids favourite place to go when going to the seaside. Used Tesco vouchers to exchange for entry, so worth the money. No long queues like Thorpe Park and other theme parks so kids were able2 spend hours going on all the rises endlessly. Best bit about it was us adults not riding didn't have to pay to get in.
  • Great value for money. Keeps kids of all ages busy from morning until late at night. Half price after 6pm. Pay once and come and go as please. Lots of food outlets. Indoor adventure area on two floors for small kids with eating areas. Next to famous Southend Pier stretching a mile. Adults can go on rides for free with kids if kids are under 1 meter. Customer service team on site always extremely helpful and full of fun. Toilets on site. Wheelchair and pram accessible. Lots of parking nearby available. Amusements and shops very close by. Excellent fish n chip shop on site.
  • We have purchased annual passes and they are fantastic value for money! We can NOT fault this place! Even in busy times the queues for rides are not to long so the children do not get bored. 99% of the staff are so friendly, happy and so helpful. With the annual pass you receive 20% off food, snack etc inside the park. The park itself is always clean and has its own security, which I feel gives you reassurance and peace of mind. No matter what your age, you are guaranteed a fab day out!
