Adventure Island is a free-admission amusement park located at Southend On Sea, Essex, England, UK. It has five roller coasters and over 30 other rides, as well as attractions including restraunts and a gift shop.

The current site of the park flanks the north end of Southend Pier and has been an amusement park since 1976 when the Miller family purchased the land now forming the west side of the park. The site is currently owned and managed by Stockvale Ltd.

History[edit | edit source]

In 1976 the land to the west of the pier was purchased by the Miller family and they developed their amusement park on the site from the rudimentary original. The site was extensively redeveloped and in 1995 the park was vastly expanded when the land to the east of the pier was purchased to form part of the park.

The park has previously been known as Peter Pan's Playground and Peter Pan's Adventure Island, before becoming simply Adventure Island.
