Blackgang Chine, Ventnor
(3.9/5 based on 1,500+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • The park is run down and old fashioned. Don't expect much it's mostly models and moving objects and lots of walking up and down hills. There are some nice views in the park. For rides there is kids roller coaster and a couple of water slides. I thought it was all over priced and not worth the 40 minutes drive we did to get there.
  • Plenty of variety to keep younger children happy and entertained. Very hilly, you do need to be physically fit to get around the park without finding it a struggle, or at least help little people with shorter legs up the steeper sections.
  • A fun day out for families with younger children. The dinosaur exhibit is great and well laid out with its Jurassic Park type feel. The water rides are great fun, and not too soaking. Food at the various eateries seems reasonably priced. Ground and gardens well maintained. Toilets were spotless.
  • I loved this place as a kid and still do now. Its not the best theme park in the world but its good and a nice place to visit. As an adult I liked the sawmill exhibitions, the walk around the attractions and the great views.
  • Finally we made it to the place to be. Enjoyed a couple of week-spent hours with our children. Will return.
