I'm a 21 year old female from mainland England who has been visiting Blackgang Chine for near enough my entire life - from when I was little, sharing a Whitecliff Bay chalet with ants, to the 2nd September 2014, when I revisited the island with my parents and boyfriend after a 2 year absence. My parents hadn't been to Blackgang... More

I had been to Blackgang some years ago and was not overly impressed. This time was totally different, so many new things to see and do, so entertaining for adults and children alike. Comfortable and clean cafeteria, with nice food and very friendly staff. The whole park experience was excellent in our opinion.

Theme park containing a real mix of attractions. There's a lot to do here, we visited with a young child and there were many attractions of interest including big playgrounds. Some of the attractions were better suited to slightly older children but there's more than enough variety to provide something of interest for most children. Entry is on the expensive... More

We decided to go to the IOW for a day trip and Blackgang Chine was first on the list. Great (actually it was remarkable) weather for the end of September which really helps and the park was absolutely empty which was quite bizarre. I'm guessing with the children back to school and the weather not always being great, the end... More

I have been visiting the Isle of Wight and Blackgang Amusement Park since I was a child (and I'm 55 now). Had not been for about 7 years and so thought we would visit Blackgang again on a quiet Tuesday in late September. Area 5 the new dinosaur attraction with moving models was very good, and we did this first.... More

worth a visit. New area 5, revamped dinosaur attraction is good. My boys favourite is cowboy town they are there for 2 plus hours. Look for vouchers in papers and leaflets.

We have 3 children, aged 8, 7 and 4 and they had a brilliant day out here. There was plenty to keep them amused, they especially enjoyed the dinosaur area, snakes and ladders and cowboy land. I would recommend for families with young children aged 8 and under.

Went here with grand daughter and her 4 year old daughter. Some years since we last visited and thought the new attractions were very good. Will return when the family visit us again. The ticket that combines Blackgang and Robin Hill is good value and keeps everyone entertained for at least two days.
