Easter is always a fun time on the Isle of Wight and will be made even more thanks to these brand new events at some of the Island’s best-loved attractions…
Chocofrolica at Blackgang Chine:
Chocolate lovers are invited to head to Blackgang Chine this Easter holiday as it launches Chocofrolica. This brand-new event which promises to indulge and delight visitors with the UK’s favourite confectionary is running until 27th April 2019.
Enrol as a chocolatier and revel in the wonders of the cocoa bean as Blackgang Chine is taken over by Chocofrolica! Dive head first into a giant Chocolate Bubble Bath on a search to find the golden bubble and win a chocolatey prize; race around on Bouncy Milk Cow Hoppers and take on the Honey Bee Quest as you explore the park for your chance to win an extra special prize!
Expect frolics and fables from our resident dragon Cedric and his Mad Chocolatier as they cause all sorts or chocolatey trouble! Even the Easter Bunny will be hopping around, popping up and making a few cheeky appearances!
Anyone with a sweet tooth can enter chocolate heaven up until the 27th April, 10am – 5pm, as the park is taken over by Chocofrolica, a festival ‘choc-full’ of fun and treats for all the family.
Plus, families visiting the park across the Easter weekend (19th – 22nd April, 10am – 7pm) can enjoy extra Chocofrolica activities including an amazing 5-tier chocolate fountain and performances by Coco the Bubble Wizard who will wow audiences with his incredible giant bubbles.
