Take a look at our thrill-seeking rides, exciting interactive walk-throughs, playtime classics, and everything in between for the perfect family day out on the Isle of Wight!
Extinction – NEW FOR 2023!
Experience a NEW 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?!

Snakes & Ladders
It’s the classic family boardgame like you’ve never experienced it before. Leave your fate in the hands of another family member as they spin the wheel to decide if you climb the ladders or slide down the backs of the slippery snake slides!
Minimum height: 1.1m
Please note that to ensure the safety of all guests, this attraction will close in wet weather as the slides become too slippery.
Make your way through Rumpus Mansion, the once fine old building that’s now overrun with boggarts, gremlins, pixies and mythical creatures! Push the buttons to interact with the mischievous characters as they cause chaos in the mansion
Musical Pet Shop
Step inside Mr Mel-O-Dee’s Pet Shop and meet all of his weird and wonderful animals! From the Tasmanian devil to the chatterbox parrot, there’s lots of exciting creatures to meet. Stay long enough and they might even sing you a song!
Hall of Mirrors
Take a wander through the topsy turvy Hall of Mirrors and see yourself like never before! Stretched out, shrunk down, pulled sideways or as a wiggly worm, it’s fun for the whole family! And did you know…the mirrors in the hall of mirrors are over nearly 100 years old? That’s seriously bad luck if you break one of those!
Step inside the Isle of Wight’s wonkiest house, with tilted floors, slopping walls, and cheeky characters getting up to all sorts of strange antics! Nothing is quite as it appears in the Crooked House…
Mouth of Hell
Will you dare enter the Mouth of Hell? Creep past the sharp teeth, look through the eyes, and see if you’ll fit through the gap. As one of Blackgang Chine’s classic attractions, you’ll soon see why this is a family favourite!
Search for Jonah when you step inside the mouth of his friendly whale friend but watch out…you might get wet! This interactive walk-through is great fun for the whole family, but be warned, Jonah may not be inside. Where else do you think he’d be?
