Adventure Island Tickets

Kids, BIG and small, if you fancy a cheap trip to Adventure Island this year we have heavily discounted tickets for sale.

We have 2013 tickets available at the discounted price of £9 for mini/jnr wristbands and £13 for Big wristbands; but hurry before stocks run out! (If bought at the park these would cost over £18 and £24 each!)


The Big (Blue) Adventure wristband lets riders over 1.2 metres tall experience all 32 wristband rides.

The mini (red) wristband lets riders up to 1 metre tall experience 13 rides, whilst the junior (green) wristband lets riders between 1 mtr & 1.2 mtrs tall experience all the mini rides & an additional 9 rides. But don’t worry – the decision as to which wrist band is appropriate (mini or junior) is not made until the day you go and the child’s height is checked. An accompanying adult rides free with a child wearing a mini/jnr wristband on the mini/jnr rides.

Each wristband voucher is valid until the park closes in Dec 2013. Any not used can be exchanged for use in 2014 .

Each wristband voucher is valid for peak & off peak times

The great thing about Adventure Island is if you don’t ride you don’t pay unlike Chessington, Alton Tower etc. so you only need buy wristbands for those that want to go on the rides.

Please contact Sue for more details and ensure all cheques are made payable to ‘Down Syndrome Extra 21’
