If you’re sick of the whole roller-coaster/thrill/Disney type of amusement park, and you happen to be passing through England, be sure and drop into one the four Diggerland theme parks. They’ve got 4 parks scattered all over England so there’s bound to be one near you. They have drive-yourself dump trucks, excavator rides and even an excavator-driving stunt team. This isn’t pretend stuff though, you really do get to learn and drive professional earth moving equipment, all under professional supervision of course. If you want to take it to the next level, you can even book a 2 hour lesson on how to use a JCB. Sounds like perfect summer school holiday fun if you ask me.
Diggerland welcomes you to four parks: Kent, County Durham, Devon and West Yorkshire. Diggerland guarantees a fun filled, exciting, action packed day out for kids and adults of all ages. Children (and adults if they wish) have the opportunity to ride in, and drive, different types of construction machinery including Dumper Trucks, Mini Diggers and Giant Diggers (all under strict supervision). Diggerland is a day out with a difference: not only can families learn about how these diggers work, they can actually drive them, too!
