Wonderful location, spotless site with a great vibe. Even better than when my wife and I went 30 years ago. OK it is not Alton Towers but our 6 year old had a WHALE of a time (they have 3) and we had time to relax as she played. Loads of parking, great ice creams and some really good rides... More

There are plenty of things to do with little ones. We took out one year old and managed to spend three fun hours here (incredible achievement with one so diddy!). Ticket also allows you to return within seven days so although it seems a little pricey, definitely worth it when under 4's are free.

Fabulous day out for families with kids, particularly younger kids although the water slide will entertain teenagers too. The new for 2017 underwater kingdom is fantastic. Immerse yourself in the atmospheric underwater sounds and marvel at the majestic rhythmic motion of the whale. We were hypnotized by it and loved it. The whale has Disney written all over it and...

Good place to take the kids for a day out. It's more of a walk about and have a look then it is a theme park. There are a few rides the kids can go on such as a roller coaster, water slide, haunted house. Many play parks for the kids. There is a dinosaur and underwater and cowboy town... More

Visited with a friend and 3 young children last week oldest 8 and youngest 3. Family ticket was good value and offered free re entry for a whole week after. I'm always put off by extortion or theme parks, this is comparatively good value. You can easy get a couple of days out of it. Amazing for young imaginative minds... More

My husband had been here as a child himself and wanted to revisit with are own kids whilst on holiday. We always look at Trip Adviser for a guideline when planning days out so I was slightly worried with the mix of reviews. Luckily any concerns were soon put to rest. The carpark was free, we were greeted by fun... More

Visited here with our three children on holiday. We bought a combo ticket for here and Robin hill which left us without much change from £190 for two adults and three children! Robin hill was a joke, one ride and you pay extra for the tabbogan! Blackgang Chine has two decent rides and one of them..the rollercoaster was closed for... More
