Win free family trip to Adventure Island

Your chance to celebrate Halloween at a theme park

IT’S getting spooky at Adventure Island on Southend seafront from October 29-31 as it celebrates Halloween with a Fright Fantastic – and you could be there as the Recorder has two family tickets (four Big Adventure bands) to give away.

Lights are being turned down low and scary music will play throughout the park, with pumpkins, oozing blood, clouds of smoke billowing over rides and other scary surprises all around.

There will be a chance for children to play for sweets at the Adventure Island Trick or Treat Zone.

Simply knock on the door and either a sweet old lady or a zombie will answer – but it’s free sweets either way.

Adventure Island staff will be dressed in creepy costumes, trying to scare visitors who are encouraged to join in the fun by coming in costume too.

Adventure Island – the UK’s number one free admission fun park – is open daily during October half-term with half-price wrist bands from 6pm.
