Adventure Island

Adventure Island is located in Southend on Sea. Opened in 1976, the park has been owned by the Miler family throughout its existence. The land that the park is located on was previously the Sunken Gardens. It doubled in size in 1995 and has continued to expand its ride line up ever since.

Located next to Southend Pier, the longest pleasure pier in the world, dating from 1830, the site is less than a mile from the classic Kursaal amusement park that operated until 1973.

The park has five roller coasters, with Rage serving as the park’s signature attraction.
