“Weird, quirky, some parts outdated but kids loved it”
Reviewed 13 July 2014

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.

“An oldie but a goodie!”
Reviewed 12 July 2014

Our kids love this place, and because they allow you return visits on your ticket for a week we ended up going about 4 times, early in the morning when there were no queues so they had multiple goes on the roller coaster and the water slides!!!

“Great day out”
Reviewed 12 July 2014

Loved the restricted area, the water cannons on the pirate ship and scary stuff was scary! Also loved that we could return again and again for next 7 days so great value for money

“Great value day out”
Reviewed 11 July 2014 via mobile

Had a friend visiting from Scotland with her 6 and 8 year old. I suggested Blackgang Chine as a day out not really expecting anything great. How wrong I was. It's so much bigger than I expected and ideal for their age group. So much to see and do, and very interactive which the kids love.
We had lunch in the cafe, and was surprised at the quality and filling of the sandwiches. Being in a theme park, they could demand higher prices and not such large, good quality portions.
Overall, a great family day out, at to top it off the tickets can be used for a whole week if you wanted!!
