It use to be cheap and cheerful came to mind when I thought of adventure island. It's become very Americanised and over priced. But it's still a must do every summer for us lot from Essex.

Myself and my family come annually to Southend on sea and every time we visit we always venture into adventure island. Great that after 6pm ride tickets are half price and there is a great selection of rides!

YOU ONLY PAY FOR A RIDE EITHER BY WRISTBAND OR INDIVIDUAL TICKET WHEN YOU WANT TO GO ON the rides, other wise the entrance is free. I believe you can buy season tickets, but not sure how much they cost. hope this helps
