Blackgang Chine calls itself "Land of Imagination" and this is certainly true. With many different attractions in one park there's something here to appeal to all students, no matter what age or interest. There's everything from nursery rhyme characters through to pirates, cowboys, fairies, goblins and even dinosaurs. Add in a few thrill rides and factual museums and you have a great mix for a fun day out.

This all provides extremely rich stimulus for many subjects. The pre-prepared educational resource set available for Blackgang Chine plays to the strengths of the park itself and are worthy of further investigation.

Blackgang is built on the edge of an eroding cliff-face - indeed, since the park first opened it has had to retreat inland on a number of occasions. This fascinating history is well recorded and presented in the "Coastline" museum and is ideal study material for students looking at coastal erosion. From the park there are several viewpoints where you can see partially collapsed buildings sliding down the cliff edge and enormous amounts of spoil on the beach below.

Suspend disbelief and enjoy all the quirks you will experience at Blackgang. The kids will simply love it.
