I had visited here as a child so was eager to return with our daughter. Its an unusual attraction and has many features that you wouldn't see anywhere else. A lot had changed since I went as a child, due to the cliffs falling into the sea but it was lovely to see that they'd managed to move the wild... More

Blackgang Chine is an amazing quirky place. It is great for having fun with the family and for interaction with your children, there is a small roller coaster and the water slide to have fun on but there is plenty of time to interact with your children rather than just sitting there watching them in queues or on rides.

We visited ina quieter day and hada great time. Nice that there were no queues and daughter could enjoy everything. Entry price is good value, shoo and cafe also value for money. It is rather steep to walk around, so it's tough on the legs and back if you have a pushchair.

Really enjoyed this day out. So much to see and do for the kids and big kids too (the adults) can be a bit pricey to get if you have a big family but I can see why they charge the amount they do as you have so many things to do. My little nephew enjoyed every moment and was... More

Plenty to see and do, even for pre schoolers. But please be very careful if you take your children on the slides at the snakes and ladders. My 4 year old broke her leg going down one of the slides on my lap!!! The lovely nurse at A & E guessed exactly what had happened as soon as I mentioned... More

A bizarre experience with the creepy crooked house, rumpus manor and singing pet shop, but great fun had by all the family!

I visited BG Chine as a kid in 1984, now I'm here taking my 4 and 1 yr old. I remember the crooked house, but new features like the pirate ship and cowboy town were great. The slides through the grass hills were loved as well as the nursery land and water slides. A good day out for children up... More
