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!

My two boys, aged 5 and 6 loved this. We had a half price ticket, which made it reasonable to get in. There isn't enough rides to justify the full price.

Great place but limited to younger children really, not a lot for over 14s. Still a good place to spend a few hours. Decent food/drink available considering it is not a big place.
Good parking and easy to find.

Although our children enjoyed it
It took a long time to get here and quickly realised after a few hours they had done everything
They need to add more to this place as it gets very boring very fast
The food was very poor with under cooked chips and burgers my children hated it however a party that was on had pack lunches in digger boxes I would've preferred to be able to buy these for all my kids as they were more what they wanted plus the lunch box to take home would've been nice

There was so much to do. Children were wowed by being able to drive large machinery and huge giggers. But then so were the adults....most of whom used the children as an excuse to try the equipment out.
The staff were also quite knowledgeable about the equipment.
A really great day out
