So if you’ve always dreamt of riding a digger, you can dig your heart out all day long! It’s not just fun for the little ones here.
You can race around in an actual JCB at the Formula JCB Racing Course; after a security briefing and driving instruction, you’ll compete head-to-head with other visitors and try to win the trophy!
Or try racing against the clock and other park guests on an agility course in a huge dumper truck. Drive mega dirt diggers, dumpers, or take on one of the theme park rides: go crazy on the Spindizzy, or ride a train around the park.
There’s a number of rides that are unsuitable for adults; these include the Mini Landrovers and Go Karts.
Kids will be able to enjoy several coin operated rides, and there are sandpits and soft play areas for the little ones, while you sit back and take in the fun. For more information, visit the website of Diggerland Durham.
