Family Fun Day Out: CHECK √
We all love, a family day out… YAY!
But occasionally, the idea seems great and then the day… uummm, not so much!
So, you’re all set… the kids are beyond excited, the dog’s fussing about and you can’t find the car keys or leave and then not sure if you locked the front door!
We get it.
We want you to have the best day, make loads of new memories and go home with the kids chattering about how much fun they’ve had.
So, here’s our quick tips on making the most of your fun Isle of Wight family day out…
Firstly, check out our opening times and awesome offers for family tickets, frequent visitor passes, and join park passes with our partner island attraction, Robin Hill.
Have a look around our attractions and working out which rides you really, really don’t want to miss out on. To make it even easier, why not download the Park Map before you leave home to get your day really planned?
As a fully inclusive, accessible family day out, we also understand that some people want, or need, to experience the park differently so we’re here to help with any accessibility information you need ahead for your family day out… there are lots of ways you can get in touch with us to ask anything ahead of your family day out to Blackgang Chine.
Next, and most importantly, no one wants disappointed kids… we certainly don’t and work hard to make every visit to Blackgang Chine special.
Before you head out the door, take a look at our Ride Guide so you’ll know all about height restrictions, waiting times, distance between one ride and the next and any essential extras!
We’re also a fabulous day out for young people from schools, care settings and youth groups, and have lots of handy info for you to have a look at here.
Are we dog-friendly… oh yes!
Whether it’s your family pet or a seeing-dog to support you on your day out, all dogs are welcome.
There are lots of places as you enjoy your family day out where you’ll find top up water bowls, accessories in the Gift Shops or quiet areas where you can enjoy some catch up time with your favourite canine.
Hop over to our partner venue, Robin Hill, for some shared tips on our dog-friendly visitor attractions on the Isle of Wight.
You can drive here and we have a great big car park to make it super easy for you to park and get sorted for your family day. Postcode for your SatNav of choice is PO38 2HN.
If you want to take the green, sustainable travel option, Blackgang Chine is on Number 6 bus route so you can get to us really easily. Maybe make it extra special and take one of the open top tour buses for great coastal views on your way to see us! The Island Coaster stops right outside our front door!!
Food, glorious food!
In our experience (and we’ve got quite a lot!), kids need fuel 😊
Throughout the day, you can pop into any of our delicious snack stops, cafes or restaurants to have a bit of downtime and fuel up. From delightful cakes and healthy snacks to full-on fish and chips, tasty lasagne, soups and salads or indulgent ice-cream treats, we can cater for every dietary need… just ask us how we can help.
Want to bring your own?!
Choose from our many charming picnic sites to pop open your sandwich box, throw down a blanket and tuck in to your own favourite snacks.
… and yes, we’d love you to stop by one of our brilliant Gift Shops as you leave!
Why not pick up a beautiful momento of your day at Blackgang Chine? From practical bits and bobs that you may have forgotten, like a poncho in case the weather turns when you arrive (it happens!), right through to a little fabulous something for every budget from cuddly toys to jigsaw puzzles, books to fun pencils, fossils to crafting maker kits.
It’s all here, and the fun is waiting just for you!
