Adventure Island upgraded! We really had fun. I would go again and again, the staff are so polite and always ready to assist. The rides are so much fun and you don't really need to pack anything as there's a lot to buy and snack on and it comes hot at affordable prices... An extra discount with your yearly pass...

We went - two adult & two 5year olds. We purchased our tickets online, so made a little saving. The children are not very tall, but there were ample rides for them to choose from & go on. The rides where they were not quite tall enough for, where an adult had to go on too, we were able to ride for free Facilities were plenty, well sign posted and clean. The park was very well maintained, lots of staff around and everywhere was clean! We spent around 5 hrs there, well enjoyed, two very tired, but happy 5yr olds!

A great day out. Not really a queue on any rides and the staff were friendly and enthusiastic - we felt very welcome! So many rides for the price of the ticket. Thanks for a fun packed day out!! Oh, and the arcades are great value for money too.

We took the grandkids and we all had a wonderful day. We was lucky to get straight on all the rides and didn't have to wait at all. Weather was also in our favour. We loved it that much we bought an annual pass

Our first visit. My 8 yr old daughter wanted rides, but we didn’t want the expense and queues of a theme park, so we thought we’d give this a go. £20 wrist band each and they got more than our monies worth. Several mini coasters and a fair few other thrill rides for my 8 and 12 yr old to enjoy. We bought a few single tickets for us to join them and we had fun too. Loads for the little ones too and, l thought it didn’t apply to us, I love that under 120cm kids can have an adult ride with them for free. What was refreshing to see were people who enjoy their job! Lots of friendly interaction with their guests. It was a lovely thing. Best thing of all, even though it was busy, was very little queue times! We will be back.

As a family we meet regularly at Adventure Island. All the children have annual passes (fantastic value even if you can only visit 2 times a year) and adults watch them having fun while catching up and eating doughnuts without having to pay an exorbitant entrance fee. The rides cater for all ages!

Amazing time and amazing rides the water slide was my favourite and so was the giant skateboard one! Truly, a time I do not want to forget.

Good value when booked in advance- then upgrade to annual pass. They loved it… the wait time for rides was fine. Didn’t feel overwhelmed by the amount of people. Food was excellent in the outlets and staff friendly everywhere. Felt safe.

Got a question? No problem!

Are you easy to get to?

Yep! We’re within walking distance of two train stations, and there’s plenty of council-owned parking nearby.

I don’t like queuing!

You’re in luck - because our average queuing time, even during peak hours, is only 20 minutes.

What if it’s raining?

We’ve got plenty of undercover rides and arcades to keep you entertained until the rain clears.

I’ve booked it, but I can’t make it

Don't worry, your booking is valid until redeemed. Just come on another day instead.
