The Blackgang Beach

Uh-Oh! The Storm that sealed the Jolly Robin’s fate has blown you off course too, and now you find yourself marooned on the deserted Blackgang Beach! 

Surrounded by nothing but palm trees and washed-up cargo, those stranded on the beach will pass the hours with the mysterious pool that allows you to walk on water! Hopping, skipping, jumping, and even running, will see your feet remain dry as you dance over this wobbly water pillow.


Experience an adrenaline-inducing adventure as Extinction arrives at Blackgang Chine! This 360-degree pendulum swing will see you soar to new heights, taking you an incredible 18 meters up in the air!

But don’t worry. We’ve got you covered if you prefer a tamer option! For those seeking a thrilling yet less intense adventure, a 120-degree swing option is available. Experience the excitement of the Extinction ride without the full 360-degree rotation. Enjoy a memorable experience tailored to your comfort level.

In true Blackgang magic style, it’s set in a location that will give guests a truly unique experience….where else can you take a ride that sees you fly off the edge of a cliff?!
