Adventure Island is the ideal destination for a great day out for your hard working students (and teachers!)
So, why book a trip at Adventure Island?
Safe and secure environment:
Although Adventure Island has lots of fabulous rides and attractions, it does not cover a large area of ground space making it easy to keep an eye on your group. We always have security personnel on duty when ever we are open.
Suitable for all ages:
Our rides and attractions are suitable for both Primary and Secondary School Children. Ride Access: Each Student receives their own ride band allowing them to access any of our rides (available rides subject to height restrictions).
Deals on Meals:
Great discount available on Meals when you book in them advance.
If you are a primary school, we offer 1 free teacher’s wristband for every 4 students that you book for. If you are a secondary school, we offer 2 free teacher’s wristband for every 15 students that you book for. These teachers will also get a complimentary hot drink and donut!
Book for as little as just £10 per student! You can even book for any day that we are open – not just the summertime!

SCHOOL VISIT FAQ’S
Q. How do I book a school trip?
A. First you need to find out how many pupils wish to visit Adventure Island. You can then book your visit over the phone on 01702 443400, request an order form or make an online enquiry right here on the website.
Q. Can you invoice the school?
A. We can only invoice the school in advance. To qualify for our big group bookings discount, the booking needs to be made and paid for at least 14 days in advance.
Q. Are there any special concessions for teachers and adult helpers?
A. Unlike other fun parks, we do not charge individual admission. If a teacher wishes to join the children on the rides they will need a wristband. We will issue 2 free wristband for an adult with every 15 children booked for Secondary schools, and 1 free wristband with every 4 children for Primary Schools. Any extra wristbands bought on the day will be school group price.
Q. What are the minimum and maximum numbers of children we can bring?
A. 15 children is the minimum to qualify for the school groups . There is no maximum – the more, the merrier!
Q. Are there any meal options?
A. To avoid bringing hundreds of lunchboxes you can purchase, meal vouchers. These are £3.40 each for child meals or £5.25 for standard adult meals. Your students can use them at the Adventure Island Eatery, The “Hot Dog Bar” and the DiningSaurs Cafe (but on quieter days the DiningSaurs Cafe may be unavailable).
Q. After I have booked will you send me my wristbands?
A. If your booking is for more than 40 students, we will send you our “pre-band” wristbands around 4 weeks before the date of your visit so that you can prepare them prior to arrival and have them already fitted when you get here. If your booking is smaller than 40 students, we will send you a confirmation letter but we cannot send wristbands in the post. We will issue you vouchers which you can collect from Customer Services when you arrive on the day. You then exchange these vouchers for wristbands at the sales offices.
Q. Can I add to my group on the day of our visit?
A. Yes, just call in at Customer Services and we will issue you with extra vouchers at the same discount price you have paid.
Q. Can we bring our school group to Adventure Island at any time?
A. Absolutely! We allow our special School Rate to be used on any day that we are open, including weekends and school holiday times!

School Visit Feedback
Over the years, we have had hundreds of schools visit us and have an amazing time at Adventure Island. Here’s just a small handful of some that have been sent in to us!
Friars Primary School
It was great. The kids loved it rain and all!! I was going to email you just to say thanks for all your help in the run up to it! Also, please give a big
thanks to the staff there that day. They were fantastically upbeat with the kids despite being out in the rain some of them. They provided just as much entertainment for some as the rides.
Hawthorn Park Primary School
Our children and staff had an amazing day with you. The rides were suitable for all our children and they were able to go together on them, as a group. Your staff were friendly and accommodating. It was good to have the two sides to the park and plenty of seating for lunch.
John Perry Primary School
Our Yr6 trip this year was brilliant as always, the children and staff thoroughly enjoyed it. The children were so impressed with Rage (as usual) but this year the new’Axis’ ride was a big hit too! I would also like to say that the staff at the park were very polite and keen to make our school trip a very enjoyable experience, thank you all for this. Can’t wait for next year!
Hertford Regional College
We had a brilliant time, as always, at Adventure Island. Staff were friendly and helpful, the facilities were great and the rides were brilliant, with something for everyone. Two particularly enjoyed the new ride, Axis. The booking system and schools deal was INFINITELY better than our experiences with Thorpe Park in previous years. Although we can’t book ahead for next year at this point, I am sure we will have students wanting to come back again.
