Adventure Island in Southend launches its first ever Annual Pass as it opens for 2013
11th February 2013

For a one-off cost (starting from just £45) you can make unlimited visits over the following 12-months to the UK’s Number 1 free admission Fun Park – plus you also get a fantastic 20% off in-park purchases, including food, drink and gift items.

If you were to visit Adventure Island every single day it is open in 2013, it would cost you £4375!

Adventure Island Managing Director Marc Miller explains why he has decided to introduce the Annual Pass – “People have been asking me to introduce an annual pass for years, because with over 60 rides and attractions there is so much for visitors of all ages to see, do and enjoy, but it can be hard to do everything on each visit. That is why we find families keep coming back to visit us time and again throughout the year – so they can revisit their favourite attractions and enjoy new ones. We are acutely aware money is tight for families right now, so that is we decided the moment was right to introduce the Annual Pass as it is a cost effective option for our loyal customers who come back and visit us time and time again.”

Sure to be a huge hit for the new 2013 season is the new white knuckle ride the Time Machine. The Time Machine is a high intensity, high speed ride experience that is guaranteed leave you breathless - and just a little bit dizzy. It seats 16 people and delivers an experience of around 3.7g (that’s more than 3 times the weight of gravity) in the 90 second ride that sees the passenger hanging upside down for much of the time. 27,000 LED bulbs illuminate the thrilling ride. The white knuckle ride has been completely designed and constructed by the team at Adventure Island. This means the Time Machine is a totally unique ride – a world first for the UK’s Number 1 free admission Fun Park.

Adventure Island General Manager Robert Roberts is man who invented the Time Machine. He says “I wanted to create something that would be a really intense and totally unique thrill experience. The movement - with each car independently rotating as the ride spins round at very high speed – is unlike any other ride in the world. We are really lucky to have a team to design and build our rides here on site – very few parks have that. It means the experience we are able to offer our visitors at Adventure Island is totally unique.

Adventure Island is open daily during February half term - with half price wrist bands from 6pm.
