Family and friends gathered here for a picnic the day after my daughters fantastic wedding. Weather was outstanding and many memories from our childhood were rekindled on the day. Recommended to anyone visiting the Island (young and old).

I have been coming here since a was a tot. Still come to Blackgang and still love it. It has seen some changes over the years, due to land slides etc. They have invested a lot of money onto the park more recently and it shows. The new animated dinosaurs are great, and you may get wet!

I visited blackgang chine many years ago as a child and had very happy memories so while visting the Isle of Wight I wanted my children to visit. Plus it is a attraction where dogs can go. I did feel for a family of 4 it was expensive - unfortunately due to our visit being near the end of our... More

We recently took our two young children (4 & 2.5) to Blackgang chine. It's an unusual place. A theme park comprised of various 'lands' - pirate land, fairy land, cowboy land etc etc. There are no actual rides in the main park, simply exhibits and models to play in & around. There is a big pirate ship and climbing play... More

At circa £15 a head I think this attraction is overpriced. Had this been £7-8 per head I would have been happy. The owners seem to respond to every review saying this is a 'unique' park where visitors require 'imagination' I couldn't have put it any better myself. Almost all attractions are staitc fibre glass offerings with crude voice overs.... More

First I should say we have visited many times over the last 40 years but with several years between each visit and the last 6 years ago. We will certainly be going back again soon! Five in our party so we got a family ticket plus an OAP. We picked a sunny day so lots of people at the beach... More

Weird and wonderful! Some real quirky attractions, one roller coaster and a water flume ride. Dinosaur attraction was great for the kids. A little pricey at £44 for 3 of us (2year old was free) we did get 7 days return on ticket but for a long weekend we didn't have time to make use of it.
