Filed under Best Theme Parks
Diggerland Kent, in Strood, is a unique theme park, where kids and their parents have the rare opportunity to drive full size construction machinery – under the supervision of professional instructors.
So you can dig to your heart’s content all day long! It is a family fun experience, with rides for visitors.
For instance, you can race an actual JCB at the Formula JCB Racing Course; after receiving instructions on safety and operations, you’ll go head-to-head with other aspiring digging pros and try to win the trophy!
Or take a huge dumper truck on a timed agility course and try to beat all the others. Drive immense dumpers, dirt diggers, or test your nerves on one of the theme park rides: spin till dizzy on the Spindizzy, or enjoy the views as you ride a train around the park.
Additionally, some of the rides are for children exclusively; 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, giving you a chance to relax and enjoy their fun. For more information, visit the website of Diggerland Kent.
Diggerland Yorkshire also has a country walk and indoor soft play area for children. Diggerland Devon also has its own camping site at Verbeer Manor opposite the Diggerland Park.
Racing events happen between March and October, as they need to be completed in daylight hours. Dumper racing is held on a monthly basis.
Diggerland used to offer Digger Wars, in a battle to be crowned King of the Ring!
Diggerland also have a Stunt Team – The Dancing Diggers, which operates every other year and offers a fantastic display of large diggers being pushed to their limits in amazing stunts. In 2008, they performed at several county fairs including the Kent County Fair and the Great Yorkshire Show.
