Blackgang Chine

Overlooking the stunning south coast of the Island and set in beautiful cliff top gardens, Blackgang Chine is the Isle of Wight’s most entrancing family experience! Let your imagination run wild as you venture on a journey of discovery – fighting pirates on board your own ship, discovering the life-size Blackgang Chine dinosaurs, rounding up the outlaws as a sheriff in a Wild Western town, or experiencing the magic of being a fairy princess in your very own castle.

Filled with an eclectic mix of magical theme worlds and exciting rides – including waterforce water slides, a cliff hanger roller coaster and pirate barrel ride – you’ll find adventures around every corner. Blackgang Chine has rides and attractions for the whole family but it’s a beautiful place too, with artistically designed gardens and plenty of peaceful places for parents to relax while the kids have the time of their lives.

It’s also home to the magical theme world, Underwater Kingdom, where all is make believe. Experience the most amazing array of colourful, larger than life, animatronic sea creatures. You can discover magical underwater caves, a vibrant luminescent coral reef, an abandoned sunken shipwreck and finally, the hidden kingdom, where the biggest mammal of them all can be found floating above you!
