Popular Isle of Wight theme park Blackgang Chine has unveiled its latest attraction set to open later this year.

A wobbly water pillow called Blackgang Beach is the latest addition at the park, allowing visitors will be able to hop, skip, jump and even run on water while their feet remain dry.

Previously known as The Ripple, the 20m water pillow was an April 2023 addition at Robin Hill before the park closed and went up for sale in October.

Blackgang Beach will join other former Robin Hill attractions, after owners Vectis Ventures previously transported The Colossus, now renamed The Jolly Robin.

Blackgang Beach will also be the star of the park’s Accessibility Sessions later this year.

This will see exclusive use of the area for those with disabilities, meaning they can enjoy a relaxed environment.

Dates for the Accessibility Sessions will be announced after Blackgang reopens for the season next Saturday (March 23). 

Work on Blackgang Beach remains ongoing, and the park hopes to have an open date for it confirmed as soon as possible.
