BLACKGANG Chine’s success as a popular family destination was given a boost when actor Rupert Grint, one of the stars of the Harry Potter films, announced the park was one of his favourite childhood attractions.
In the Saturday Telegraph column, Heaven and Hell, where celebrities share their holiday highs and lows, Rupert — who plays Ron Weasley — revealed his family’s favourite holiday was visiting the Isle of Wight each summer, exploring beaches and caves as well as visiting Blackgang Chine.
He said: "We got up to a lot of mischief, exploring the caves and beaches. Our favourite attraction was a theme park called Blackgang Chine. It had ghosts and goblins, a Wild West section and a small train ride. You couldn’t ask for a better holiday for a kid."
Blackgang, originally opened to the public in 1843, has now been open for over 167 years.
