“Disgraceful”

Written on: 24/08/2016 by Purcell422 (1 review written)

The Family went to Adventure Island Southend and stopped at one of the places with pianos. Now my Nephew loves sounds and him and some of the other kids were playing with the piano. This young arrogant woman and friends then went up to my sister and said, is this a coffee shop? and called them BLACK PIGS AND BLACK P R I C K which was so uncalled for. My sister's friend's partner then went to speak to them privately and it escalated as they kept bringing in racial insults. The police were… Read Full Review

“Wrist bands”

Written on: 01/06/2016 by Keshawn402 (1 review written)

We visited Southed from France and bought our two children wrist bands to enable them to go on all the rides at Adventure Island. Unfortunately, before they had chance to ride, there was a terrible storm and most of the rides were shut and the children were drenched. We asked if their bands could be used the next day as it was late and the children were wet and frozen. Although the operators could see that we had only just purchased the expensive bands and had been unable to use them, they… Read Full Review

“Absolutely rubbish! ”

Written on: 28/07/2015 by Kerrih (1 review written)

Paid for two wrist bands for my two children one is 4years old and the other 11years old, and has special needs. We were allowed an adult to go on rides with my youngest daughter but wasn't allowed to go on with my daughter who has complex special needs. I think it is absolutely disgusting and extremely unfair! It was a complete waste of time and money visiting! And there was only a few rides that the children were allowed on! Most of the people working there look like they have just left… Read Full Review

“BRILLIANT”

Written on: 12/05/2015 by qeForbes297 (1 review written)

We had the best day ever at this park with our Granddaughter yesterday. Although the weather was nice the queue times were good and the staff on the rides were excellent with the kids and high fiving them as they came off, they were polite and made the day special. LOVED IT. The band prices were good for the money, we purchased the green and red ride bands for our 7 year old and she went on everything she wanted to. Could not fault the day… Read Full Review

“Just Brilliant!”

Written on: 05/09/2013 by davidjayo (21 reviews written)

Ok so it hasn't got the huge rides like the main parks, but my 7 yr old daughter loves fast rides, she is 1.2m high and at any Merlin park u need to be 1.4m, at Southend she can go on all the rides, last Saturday we went on 42 rides in 8 hours and the dreaded Time Machine 30 times, superb value for money even at £25 compare it with any other theme park, we have annual passes and have been 11 times in 6 weeks, they cost us £220 for 4 people and then you get 20% off of everything we went… Read Full Review

Hi there, we got annual passes at the start of the holidays with our tesco vouchers it came to £220 for a family of 4 all blue bands been there 12 times and counting, that's £4.60 a visit in 6 weeks on average we go on 30 rides a day and u also get 20% off sealife which works out at £4.70 for 2 x people, we live in walthamstow, I can't think of better value anywhere, my 7 yr old daughter did 30 rides on time machine last sat, 50 rides on Claw this sat and next sat we are planning 50 on Rage thats about 10p per ride! thats better than the usual £6 per ride at Alton Towers, go on splash out on an annual pass...whats better is my kid is exactly 1.2m high, she can ride everything...

“I did not like it”

Written on: 11/09/2011

Food: terrible choice. Rides: mainly children's rides, some thrill rides Shows: what shows? there was some kind of tacky entertainment going on.. i think.. it was confusing No idea how anyone get really like this place. It's a good place to spend a few hours. Good little funfair, but not an amusement park or theme park by any means. This place has not got a patch on the king of all theme parks/amusement parks, Pleasure Beach Blackpool. I will not be back in a hurry, but it is a lovely… Read Full Review

We love this park, and southend, did you go on Rage, Time machine, vortex, Dragons Claw? superb rides and Time Machine stops on a regular basis for sick cleaning, u don't have to wait an hour to get on....on average 6 rides an hour, the entertainment is normally superb went last night the ladies of pop night i'd give 9/10 she actually sounds like Pink, to be honest whats the point in going to Alton towers paying £40 to go on 6 rides when you can spend the day on 5 great rides a total of 30 times? a beach, yeah it's a bit tacky bit if you have a small child that loves fast rides you can't beat it at the moment we are paying around 10p per ride....perhaps u just had a bad day, i'd never go back to Thorpe Park or Alton Towers, we travel up from walthamstow every saturday

Written on: 10/08/2009

Adventure Island, though a compact theme park, it somehow manages to fit over 30 rides into a small area. Great for all ages particularly from 5 to 15. Kids from 1 upwards will enjoy the rides. There are even rides for adults and teenages. Rage is newest and biggest coaster in the park. Not as big as those find in places like Alton Towers or Euro disney, its still pretty good.

Great points about the park, you can buy an wristband (discounrs available online or vouchers in many places) and you… Read Full Review

Written on: 09/07/2006 by djeva1 (51 reviews written)

Me and my partner went to Adventure Island yesterday and we both had an awesome time as this was our second visit. There was lots to see and do and plenty of rides for both children and thrill seekers. I enjoyed going on the 'log flume' as it was my very first experience of a water ride and the same goes for the big blue water slides and the 'green terror' tube. We then decided to have a rest from the rides by taking a stroll along the pier and then visited the museum. We had a lot of fun in… Read Full Review

We love Adventure Island as a family.
There are always entry offers and if you are not going on any rides, you do not pay to get in, unlike other theme parks.
The queues are never very long & the rides are excellent. It is well worth a visit… Read Full Review
