The Needles offers a range of attractions for all ages including sand filling shop, adventure golf, open top bus rides, boat trips, a traditional family Carousel, Victorian games and a wide variety of retail and catering facilities. A visit to The Needles would also not be complete without a ride in the famous chairlift, which transports visitors from the top of the cliff to Alum Bay beach and back, giving the best view of the Isle of Wight’s most famous landmark – The Needles Rocks. Completing the line-up, guests can also immerse themselves in an interactive 4D Cinema experience showing the Lost World.
Alum Bay Glass is educational as well as fun, with visitors being able to watch the fascinating art of glass blowing and to witness craftsmen making a variety of crafted glassware, and at the Isle of Wight Sweet manufactory guests can then watch skilled sweet makers create sweets that you simply can’t find anywhere else!
At the sand shop guests can make their own unique coloured sand souvenirs and, with a variety of children’s attractions including a traditional Victorian carousel and a ‘Spins and Needles’ Tea Cup ride, the kids will never be short of something to do. The Water Walkerz is also a great favourite, not forgetting The Vintage Cars that allow younger visitors to drive their own vehicles!
Finishing off the line-up, Jurassic Golf features a 9 hole crazy golf course, all beautifully set against a backdrop of imaginative water features and story boards depicting 9 different dinosaur species.
