3.8/5 based on 1,400+ 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.

  • Dinosaurs were great but everything was a bit run down and it was very expensive for what it was. I'm sure it was great about 10 years ago, but felt a cheap and tatty. 
  • We took my step daughter and her two year old. We were a little apprehensive as it seemed quite expense and were not sure how much entertainment and enjoyment a two year old would get from the experie...  read more »
  • This was the best part of the holidayoung. The staff were very friendly to my children . Very good price and excellent facilities with a good day had by all. 
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • blackgang chine is the best theme park because it is a big place and there is lots to do the things I like at blackgang is Rumpus mansion the coastline the rides and the funny mirrors and you can see some of blackgang chine on a viewpoint and I like the idea of going blackgang or robin for 7 days.
  • Fun pirate & dinosaur themed park. A small number of rides, lots to climb on and run around, a surprisingly good dinosaur walk past some mechanised dinos. Staff we met were very friendly & helpful. Food isn't great, so we took picnics when we went. The ticket you buy gets you in for the next 7 days free, so a good one to visit early in your stay.
  • Amazing value when you factor in the return within seven days aspect. Most certainly a place to visit more than once. The dinosaurs were brilliant, all the children enjoyed the atmosphere around this part of the park. The Sheriff Outlaw show was well choreographed and something akin to the old American Adventure (showing my age). That said it never felt impersonal or too big. We got rained out in the afternoon but are set to return to finish what parts we missed. An enjoyable day with something for everyone really.
