New “World First” Thrill Ride Opens at Adventure Island

Adventure Island (Southend) has announced that they have now opened the Time Machine which is described as “unique new ride – that is certainly not for the faint hearted”

“The Time Machine is a high intensity, high speed ride experience that is guaranteed leave you breathless – and just a little bit dizzy.

The attraction seats 16 people and delivers an experience of around 3.7g in the 90 second ride that sees the passenger hanging upside down for much of the time. 27,000 LED bulbs illuminate the thrilling ride.

The white knuckle ride has been completely designed and constructed by the team at Adventure Island. This means the Time Machine is a totally unique ride – a world first for the UK’s Number 1 free admission Fun Park. The park claims it would cost around £3/4 million to purchase a similar ride.

Adventure Island General Manager Robert Roberts is man who invented the Time Machine said

“I wanted to create something that would be a really intense and totally unique thrill experience. The movement – with each car independently rotating as the ride spins round at very high speed – is unlike any other ride in the world. We’re delighted we’ve been able to complete all our rigorous safety checks and get it open in time for our Half Term visitors to enjoy.”

Adventure Island Executive Chairman Philip Miller said

We are really lucky to have a team that design and build our wonderful rides here on site – very few parks have that. It means the experience we are able to offer our visitors at Adventure Island is totally unique.”

Adventure Island is open daily during October half term – with half price wrist bands from 6pm.
