Theme Park Water / Amusement Park
An amusement park resting in an old ravine, Blackgang Chine has hosted amusement park enthusiasts since 1843. The two main attractions are a roller coaster and a waterslide, but the park is most famous for its award-winning walkthrough heritage sites. In 2010, "Blackgang's Disappearing Village" opened for adult guests. It tells the story of the ravine and coastline and houses Chocolate Heaven, a gourmet chocolate shop, among other attractions. Visit the 26.5 m (87 ft) skeleton of a whale, Timber World, Wight Flight, and a fairyland section, also located in the Disappearing Village.

  • Really lovely set of attractions. Eldest loved the dinosaurs. Youngest thought nursery land was amazing. Food in cafe is really good - all seems fresh and lots of options that kids should like, not just chips. Views are amazing. Perhaps a bit pricey but a fairly unique experience.
  • Fantastic for younger children, lots of opportunity to use their imagination. Few short hills to climb but all pushchair friendly. Highly recommend
  • The new parts are good (underwater, snakes and ladders, dinosaur). Others were tired looking and the interaction of the attractions wasnt great once inside each one. Given its £80 for a family of 4 to get in there are better things on the IoW to do.
  • Really nice place kids 5 and 6 loved it there Staff and very friendly and even better we could take the dog..Themed areas were done very well food was reasonable and very nice.
  • This is amazing I have been going with my family for 5 years running, and my children have never got bored
