Adventure Island prides itself in being the UK’s Number 1 FREE entry theme park. They have also been named as the world’s fourth friendliest theme parks, so why wouldn’t you want to visit? 

The Park has over 40 mind-blowing rides to jump on, for the thrill seekers it’s the swinging and spinning Axis or for those who prefer to soak up the sights of the sea front The Big Wheel is one to hop onto. Day tickets start at £22.50 online, or come for the whole year for just £50 with an annual pass.

There really is something for everyone at Adventure Island. Don’t worry if you’re not a fan of the adrenalin fuelled rides, there’s plenty of more relaxed activities in the adjacent Adventure Inside where there is an arcade, small rides and a soft play area for the little ones. This is included in both the day wristbands and annual pass or you can purchase tickets from £5- £15.00. After an action-packed day, sit down and grab a bite to eat or drink at one of their 12 food and drink outlets, from fluffy candy floss to a classic hotdog.
