Black Gang Chine

Blackgang Chine, the oldest theme park in the UK and one of the most iconic tourist destinations, this year celebrates its 175th anniversary, having first opened its doors in 1843, long beforemany of the mod cons we take for granted today were even invented!

Expect celebrations throughout the year at both Blackgang Chine and its sister park, Robin Hill, to commemorate this mementos event – and be part of a brand new adventure as the story of Blackgang Chine & the Curious Timeboat, unfolds ….

Filled with an electric mix of attractions, magical theme worlds and exciting rides - waterforce water slides, cliff hanger roller coaster and pirate barrel ride - you'll find adventures around every corner, something for all the family.

Expect to encounter Victorian Hunters and Dodos at Easter, dinosaurs at a pre‐historic dinner party during May Bank Holiday weekend, cowboy hoedowns and shenanigans during May half term, plus BIG 175th birthday parties every Monday and Wednesday evening throughout the summer holidays – and discover what happens next when the final crystal that powers the curious timeboat is found at Blackgang’s Illuminations in October!

Blackgang Chine one of the Island’s leading tourist attractions, are open late during the school summer holidays with additional fun and entertainment for the enjoyment of visitors all day and into the night too!
