Visited Blackgang Chine with my mum at the age of 10. Enjoyed most of the rides, but I got a bit frightened by Hell's Mouth. Other than that, I recommend it to other people and will go again.

My partner and I decided on a nice weekend away to the Isle of Wight. I previously went as a child, and Blackgang Chine was one of the places I remembered vividly. So we decided to pay a visit! It was just how I remembered. The huge Pirate statue out front was the same as it was all those years... More

We have been going to Blackgang Chine for years and keep going back. It isn't for pure thrill-seekers as there are only 2 rides. It is probably better for younger children but adults can enjoy it as its location is delightful, overlooking the sea, and often out of the wind so can be very warm. We enjoy our frequent visitor...

I first visited as a child and returned as an adult. The place is still great fun and enchanting. The location on the cliff is fantastic and the attractions different and entertaining. The different zones, our favourite was the Wild West, make for great entertainment even if we were far too old for much of it. Some newer big rides... More

I haven't been for a couple of years, but I doubt its changed at all. This attraction is really lovely, there's something to see around every corner. A real child's wonderland, its old fashioned and charming. They have adopted some more modern theme park type rides such as roller coasters, but, in the main, it feeds a child's imagination and...

Wonderful theme park for families, Dinosaurs are amazing, definitely recommend attending one of the themed evenings too. Well worth the money for the tickets as you can return time and time again for seven days (or can purchase a very reasonably priced season ticket).

Always loved coming here but shocked at the price increase, way too expensive so won't be coming again. If not for this would definitely visit regularly and be happy to spend money inside the park itself, but not when I feel I'm being ripped off. There should be a ticket you can buy when you only want to visit once... More
