Western Esplanade,


Adventure Island on Southend seafront is the perfect day out for all the family, and being a free admission attraction this means you only pay if you want to play.

With over 60 rides and attractions, there’s something for everybody to enjoy…

Scream through the loops and twists of Rage – with its 75ft drop and 360 degree barrel roll it’s the only ride of its kind in England, and was voted the most thrilling rollercoaster in the UK by BBC1’s Blue Peter.

Live your “Best Worst Nightmare” as you experience the ghost-ride, Over the Hill with its high-tech’ CGI animation.

And hear your little pirates shout “Arrr!” on the Jumping Jolly Rogers, or the thirteen other rides especially for little ones including ‘The Kiddie Coaster’.

You only pay if you play, as Adventure Island is the UK’s Number 1 free admission fun park – and there’s always plenty of free entertainment on offer. Themed weekends for all of the family – and not forgetting the spooky Fright Fantastic. And throughout September and October you can enjoy the “Big Saturday Night Out” with live music, DJ and fireworks.

Feeling hungry? Then there is the themed Jungle Jive Café and our new exciting restaurant ‘Feelgoods’ providing quality pizza and pasta with a super fun atmosphere, plus kiosks and carts serving everything from hot dogs and ice cream to candy floss and fudge – and not forgetting Southend rock of course!

And don’t forget to pack your sun cream – as Southend-on-Sea is officially the warmest and driest part of the UK.
