  • It’s okay but so overpriced and not worth it. Was a lot better and cheaper back when I was younger. Only a few rides which are actually good there  more »

  • We really enjoyed Adventure Island. With a 6 year old, we bought tickets and he got to enjoy the rides. Food and drink was really reasonably priced. It's a fun place, lots of rides for differing ages and thrill levels. It doesn't feel like they are trying to extract every single penny out of you, which is a nice change. It's free to enter too. Well worth a look.
  • A wonderful place for family adventures! It's suitable for age from 0 till 90! Helpful staff, clean environment! Food and coffee nearby, and ice-cream,of course! Enough parking space! It is located next to the sea! Highly recommend for day off!
  • Really good crazy golf venue on Southend sea front. Well maintained course and reasonably priced compared to several other similar golf venues. You have the option of playing two different 9 hole courses or combining the two. Both have good settings (dinosaurs / crashed planes etc). Enjoyable for both children and adults alike. Recommended.
  • Great family time. Came on Sunday, summer holidays, but still not over crowded. All round a good selection of rides, never had to wait longer than 10 min for a ride, mostly got on with the first group. Sorted tickets in advance so got wristbands for a bargain price. Amicable and welcoming staff, entertaining and informative. Did not have much to eat on site apart from ice-cream, coffee and sweets, because 5 hours flew in a jiffy. Kids really enjoyed the rides and accompanying adult for under 1.2 m ones came handy for free adult rides. Overall clean and well maintained areas, plenty of staff and security on site. Will be definitely coming back again and would recommend to families with children.
  • So much better than I thought. Took our 3 and 6 year old granddaughters who had such a great time. Top marks to all the young staff on the rides who maintained their enthusiasm for all their riders non stop through the day. Fun to take them on things I went on 40 years ago! Coming back in the next couple of weeks and we’re a fair drive away so shows we were impressed.
