    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 »

  • Without doubt the best seaside park in the UK, With great opening times. And a great process for child's bands, you only pay for the rides they are tall enough to go on. And if they need an adult to go on the ride they ride for FREE (well done adventure island) the staff are the best staff I have ever seen in a theme park. The rides are great loads to do l, and the food is a good price to. Me and my 4 year old stayed for the 9 hours and loved every minute of it.
  • Brilliant day out 🤗😎. No queues plus a beautiful sunny day. All the ride operators were happy, friendly and funny...... thru made it fun for everyone. Downside...... no family deal so family of 4 blue bands cost £116.00, that's a good chunk of money 😔 All said and done....we had a good but pricey day out (once you factor in drinks and food etc)
  • Great day out and at a reasonable price too. Our 4 year old loved it - lots of rides for different ages. Buy wristbands online before you go to save some money. The staff were great fun and very safety conscious. Not afraid to direct the guests in terms of the rules which I found refreshing.
  • Great fun for the kids and the big kids amongst us. A bit on the pricey side, so look out for offers or go after 6 pm for half price wristbands. Some good rides that will terrify some and make others happy. Various food stalls scattered around provide good eats at a bit of a mark up. Overall a good family day (or evening) out.
  • Great place for a fun day. Rides suitable for any age here so, if you have children of a big difference in age like I do, you're sure to entertain them all in one place! Best jungle soft play area ever! Saving tips: Half price on wrist bands after 6 pm. Feel Good restaurant offers two games and one icecream free at the Arcade with every child meal. Just remember your Arcade card to top them up! Lots of special offers if you have an annual pass, including 20% off at restaurants. Opened until late.
