Photo TR: Blackgang chine (Isle of Wight -UK)


Recommended Posts

Do-it yourself fun when the coaster is closed

 

While going for a new credit on the Isle of Wight in the UK at Blackgang Chinetoday I discovered something

We got to the park just as the 400’ coaster closed (Yes I said 400’ well that’s what is says on the leaflet & website).

 

“This exciting roller coaster is perched near the edge of vertical cliffs, climbs to 400' above the sea before dropping nearly 40' in twists and turns reaching speeds of up to 35mph”

 

perched near the edge of vertical cliffs – it’s about 20 feet away from the edge.

Coaster was only open for 25 minute periods with a bit of time in between opening times.

So we had 1 hour 30mins to kill before it opened again.

 

What to do what to do !!!!!.

 

Sorry about the quality of these photo’s as there off my camera phone (wishing I had taken my camcorder now).

 

I am not joking these are real

Haha, nice photos!

 

I'm actually going to Blackgang Chine on Tuesday for a couple of hours so hopefully I'll be able to catch the coaster when its open. I've not been there for about 11 years, so I'm looking forward to going back.

Mahahaha nice photos, injoy Blackgang Chine then The opening periods must of changed for the coaster, did't close when I visted last year.

 

It was one of those parks that’s so bad it’s good. How can you not like the World of timber, Singing animals shop & how could you forget Chimney Pot Walk in a hurry. It was like something out of Monty Python just waiting for the minister of silly walks to appear.

I think because of the small amount of people that was ether predicted to be there or actually here they were running the ride of bear minimum staff & moving the them around to different rides.

If this helps, we got a bit of paper at the entrance with the opening times. It was :-

 

Waterforce 10:30 to 13:00 & then 13:45 to 16:30

 

Cliffhanger – 25min sessions (opens at for 25mins)

 

10:15, 11:15, 12:15, 14:15, 15:15, 16:15 (Last ride 16:30)

 

Barrel Ride – 25min sessions (opens at for 25mins)

 

10:45, 11:45, 12:45, 13:45, 14:45, 15:45 (Last ride 16:00)

 

But don’t worry World of timber, Singing animals shop & Chimney Pot Walk don’t close until the park closes.
