Our family arrived en-masse for a day at Blackgang Chine. The entry cost was very reasonable and offers free returns within the week, excellent value for money. The park is spread across quite hilly terrain with many different attractions hidden around corners. We spent the whole day with the grand-kids and did not run out of things to do. A... More

We visited multiple times to Blackgang Chine and it was one of our favourite things to do on our IOW trip (4 children aged 3-9 + adults). The 2014 addition of moving dinosaurs was fun and added to the nice winding but hilly walk. Our favourite parts were the rollercoaster, the waterslide, 'snakes and ladders' and the massive ice creams!... More

We visited Blackgang Chine on Saturday 23rd August as a treat for our 7 year old nephew was visiting and who loves dinosaurs. For me personally (the adult) I have to say I was very disappointed. We arrived at 2pm and we still had to pay full price and the 7 year old had to pay the same price as... More

I visited Blackgang chine as a child and thought it would be nice to take my young nephews as a day out whilst on the Isle of Wight. My brother and I always enjoyed our time here. Although it was a little pricey it turned out to be worth every penny. The boys loved running around and taking in the... More

We went back to Blackgang after a couple of years away - taking advantage of a brief break in the torrential rain. This is the first time we've been during school holidays and it's disappointing how much more expensive the place is when it's at its most busy (so much for supply and demand) - it amounted to nearly £15...

We have visited Blackgang Chine many times. It is a favourite with my children aged 0-8yrs. It is set right on the cilff edge so requires quite a bit of walking up and down step and windy paths. The new dinosaur section is very well done and frontier land is a favourite with my boys (toy guns can be purchased... More

We spent 3 hours here and could have stayed longer. Very large area in beautiful setting with outstanding views over the coastline. Superb action model dinosaurs with great sound effects. Many assorted attractions, our grandchildren aged 5 and 3 loved the snakes and ladders which were many steps going up and many slides coming down. Also the elder boy loved... More

I was re-tracing footsteps from 30yrs ago by visiting Blackgang Chine. I loved it as a child and I wanted my 5yr old daughter to experience the magic. All I can say is that it hasn't lost it, we loved it! We spent all day there, there's plenty to see. Dinosaurs were great, lots to climb on. It's not a... More
