Owner description: Diggerland is The Ultimate Adventure Theme Park Experience where children and adults alike can ride, drive and operate REAL diggers, dumpers and other full- size construction machinery. Diggerland is the perfect destination for action, fun and thrill packed family days out. Fun for all ages (subject to height restrictions), Diggerland with its 20 different rides and drives and an array of additional activities is the ideal theme park for small to large groups looking for something exciting and truly unique. Get to grips with real JCBs and 180/360 excavators, take a head-reeling turn or two on the Spindizzy, rise to lofty heights and enjoy the views on the Skyshuttle, enjoy an off-road ride on the Groundshuttle, or have a go on the Dodgems and Go-Karts!

Took 12 children for my sons 9th birthday a mix of ages from 2 to 14. We were greated by a welcome sign and a lovely young girl who took the cake and booked us in. She explained which way to go and said for us to meet back for lunch in a couple of hours. We set off trying all the rides and diggers. It was brilliant. My son drove a real size landrover and JCB. It seems small when you arrive but there is plenty to do. And what has been described as an overpriced burger van was not at all. I had a lovely jacket spud with tuna and salad £3 the other food was the same price and lovely. Huge fresh baguettes and roast beef and pork. The kids sat down to a diggerland lunch box with their names on. It was brilliant we stayed till closing and will be going back. Just a tiny niggle. A little cheap gift for the birthday boy would have been nice. The staff were polite and great with the kids. Better for kids 1,4mt as can ride anything but well worth visit.

OMG i love this place, and tell everyone with children to go! It is a good price, plus can use tesco clubcard points with it. The best thing about the place is it is FUN. The kids get to try out all kinds of trucks and diggers and do things they would not normally do, like drive a real police car, full sized tractor (under supervision of course). Plenty of rides, and parents can share the experience with their children, and get on the diggers with them.
My favourite thing about Diggerland is it is very small, so you dont lose the rest of your party, and you wont get exhausted walking around the place. (great for grandparents in that respect).
It is also clean, and everytime i have been there has never been any long queues.
So much fun for all ages my kids are 3, 5, 10 & 12 and all love it!
Think the car park was free too. very rare these days.
