Adventure Island

One of the most popular attractions along our route, Adventure Island is the centre of fun in Southend's seaside location. Located right on the beach, it’s the ideal place for a day out.

With over 60 rides and attractions there's something for everyone and enough to do come rain or shine - even for those tricky pre-teens. Whether it’s the classic helter skelter slides, or the latest roller coaster. You can even upgrade your ticket for Adventure Inside - a giant indoor play area - or for the Sealife Centre too.

Admission costs

There is no admission charge into the park; you only pay if you play. Rather than making people pay per ride, Adventure Island have a simple colour-coded wristband system. Wristband prices change depending on the season, but are around £20-£30. We recommend you book in advance online and download a voucher to use our 20% discount on ride wristbands valid with your train ticket.

Wristband levels

Red Wristbands: For children under 1m, these rides are gentle and safe for everyone.

Green Wristbands: If you’re height is between 1m and 1.2m you can go on these rides. They’re exciting and fun, but not too scary.

Blue Wristbands: 1.2m and over? You thrill-seekers are allowed to ride on some of the more extreme roller coasters, including the iconic Rage.
