Great time had by all.

Had a wonderful day here. It was clear that money had recently been spent on the park. It was very hot and it would be more suitable if more shelter was provided.

Blackgang Chine was a wonderful day out for my son and daughter. There was lots to do and not just rides. The price was reasonable and we had a nice meal there. We ordered two veggie burgers one was lovely and the other was cold. However they made us a new one no problem and it was very yummy! My... More

Whilst the cost of a family ticket is nearly £75, I feel this does offer value for money. There seems to be loads to do for all the family from young ones to teenagers. To be fair to the park is not quite big enough to spend all day here however the entry ticket is valid for a week so... More

A great family day out. We went with 6 adults and 10 kids aged between 5-15yrs and everyone had a good time. Used to come with my family as a child and lovely to now bring my own kids!! We took a picnic luckly as did find the cafe over priced.

The kids love it. Lots of space to play and activities to get involved in. We got the dual park tickets for here and Robin hill and found them to be good value for money as we returned several times even if it was just for a few hours for the kids to play. Some of the attractions were very... More

A fixed venue on our annual holiday and each year has something new to enjoy. Friendly staff provide various exciting side-shows to compliment the permanent amusements. Unlimited return for seven days and discounted entry to the associated attraction at Robin Hill makes for a great day out.
