Adventure Island wins Trip Advisor Award
Southendâ€™s leading visitor attraction, Adventure Island, is celebrating winning yet another award. TripAdvisor, the worldâ€™s largest travel website has conferred a Certificate of Excellence on the fun park.
In a letter to Marc Miller, Managing Director of Adventure Island Christine Petersen, President of TripAdvisor for Business, commented: â€śWeâ€™re proud to recognise Adventure Island for earning exceptional traveller ratings over the past year. The Certificate of Excellence honours businesses that consistently earn top ratings from TripAdvisor travellers. With a rating of 4.5, Adventure Island has earned a place among the very best.â€ť
The award is only given to â€śthe most exceptional firmsâ€ť within TripAdvisorâ€™s worldwide business community and consequently, not only confirmâ€™s Adventure Islandâ€™s status within the UK tourist industry but now gives it real presence internationally.
Mr Miller says it all came as something of shock: â€śWe werenâ€™t expecting this at all. The certificate and letter from Ms Petersen arrived in the post, completely out of the blue. That makes it all the more exciting and such a delight to receive. It is also testimony to our excellent customer standards, which come from our superb staff. Over the years we have developed Adventure Island into the UKâ€™s number one free admission fun park and that is down to delivering a truly great visitor experience. Our staff play a crucial role in delivering that, which is why this award is such a wonderful surprise.â€ť
He added: â€śWe will be displaying copies of the certificate throughout the park for all our staff and visitors to see. I would also like to thank TripAdvisor and everyone who has been kind enough to go on www.tripadvisor.co.uk and give us such positive reviews and ratings.â€ť
