Recommended Posts

Hi, I went to southend today to grab some pics, i hope you enjoy them.

 

It was a typical bank holiday and the sun wasn't shining and no site of the sun to be seen. Welcome to English Weather. We have to put up with this all the time. Anyway, Adventure island is a small park which was a lake but then they turned it into a theme park-ish fairground. The main ride is Rage, A 2007 EuroFighter. A very intense ride for the space it has! Twisty aswell!

Was a very busy bank holiday monday with lots of bikes down at the seafront.

I don't know why they call it a seafront when its the river thames. And you can see kent on the other side.

DSCF0996.JPG.ae52ab519025a81622afd2db012c8275.JPG

Pretty much the whole park. You can see how they squeezed all the rides into this tight space.

DSCF0999.JPG.ba21f23a309df055841da3a8072de910.JPG

Village of population eaten!

A resturant they consider 'posh'. yeah this place is really posh when they are below a radio station and above public toilets!

DSCF1005.JPG.20594fd1d68596187d8a8c5567869897.JPG

If you want the best donuts in the world go to the three shells just out side the park by the beach...

DSCF1012.JPG.a97c33505c6d9ceca7e74b90bf37d704.JPG

Yes there is a beach here! sort of

DSCF1016.JPG.9572c5bba2014da9a690e12ef545bb1c.JPG

I would just like to salut all the guys out there who make these amazing TRs. You guys are legends! I now realise how much time it takes to sort these photos out. My computer crashed just when i finished the TR so i had to restart the whole thing. Hopefully this time it won't die on me! But yeah, thanks for amazing pictures of parks and entertaining us when we have nothing to do.

DSCF1017.JPG.9b53bc6b23b11ef55fe56e09efdd2864.JPG

That was a great day at adventure island. The park really lights up at night and Rage is awesome in the dark! I really think this is an amazing park.

Ohhh, I've been there, man...

 

Awesome TR of a place I never knew existed! Mind you, 95% of my UK park awareness is thanks to TPR, and based on the above, that explains things a little.

Whoa!! Wait, you've only been on one looping coaster? Rage? No more? And only one loop!?

It's okay, I've only ridden 7 loops myself.

 

That was actually a really nice TR. I'd only heard of Rage, but after reading this TR, I looked it up on rcdb and the park looks like a boatload of fun! Is it your first?

Rage is my first looping rollercoaster. But then I just remembered that i rode a loop at PleasureWood Hills, Lowestoft and so i've just ridden 2 loops. In the summer I will Ride at least 3 more loops because i'm going to Blackpool and Alton towers.

My first vertical loop was on last year's West Coast trip - trying to block out the pretzel loop on Superman at SFGAm before that..

 

But on-topic, nice TR. I visited Southend a week or so ago, only to remember that it wasn't open except on weekends at that time. Thank goodness I'm on the UK trip! Rage will be my first Eurofighter, so I'm looking forward to that.

I love how Mini Mega is built atop a building. By the way, great TR, you at least got yours uploaded. I tried before and my computer just couldn't take it, I failed miserably. Never heard of Adventure Island before...looks like a great little park.

Good trip report and pictures.

 

It is great to see more people coming to Southend for the park, its a good little park with some good rides and its nice that its a very short walk from my home

 

I went down there this weekend to see Mega Mighty Mini as it has been moved and re painted, they have done a really good job with it. Not been on it yet since it's been moved.

 

The park looked really busy on Monday which is great, every year for the past 3 years something new has been done.

 

I must meet up with you guys in June.
