Blackgang Chine - Cowboy Town 2

Blackgang Illuminations Return …..

This half term, 24th – 31st   October, visitors to Blackgang Chine are in for a very special experience.  The park will be open late from 10am until 8pm with lots of fun activity taking place throughout the day and into the evening too for the whole family.

By day ….  let your imagination run wild as you venture on a journey of discovery, where you can fight pirates on-board your own ship, discover life size moving dinosaurs, become sheriff of your own town – or experience the magic of being fairy princess in your own castle!

Come and watch our resident baby T’rex dinosaurs, ‘Shadow & Sheila’ and their not so experienced ‘handlers’ as they put on an interactive show.  Plus don’t miss our ‘live’ Cowboy Showdown; we’re talking ‘real’ shoot outs and ‘live’ explosives, a jail break and bank robbery!    And when the town eventually calms down, improve your shooting skills at our cowboy training school!

Then as darkness falls, and after years of darkness ….. the park re-awakens with the magic of Blackgang’s illuminations.    Enjoy an evening exploring the park after dark.   Come dressed as your favourite character!

Take part in ‘Walk the Plank’ pirate activities and outlaw training school, interact with our wandering characters …. and for those brave enough …. experience Restricted Area 5 after dark!

Plus there’s live music, delicious warming food and at the end of the evening, our special finale, a dynamic and fun 3D projection mapping show!       A great night out for all the family!

Blackgang Chine is open from 10am – 8pm during October half term (24th – 31st)   Rides and attractions will be open until late during these evenings but please note some areas of the park will be closed off from late afternoon.   For full programme visit :
