Diggerland Yorkshire, Best Theme Parks, Diggerland Yorkshire Kids Birthday
Filed under Best Theme Parks
At Diggerland Yorkshire, near Castleford, an action-packed day out full of digging fun awaits you.
Here kids and their parents are given the unique chance to drive full size construction machinery – safely supervised by professional staff, of course. The action doesn’t stop because you’ll be digging like crazy all day long!
The park has fun rides for visitors of all ages. However, some of them are suitable for adults only. For example, you can race an actual JCB at the Formula JCB Racing Course; after you learn about safety and modes of operation from a trained professional, you’ll compete with other visitors and try to win the trophy!
Or test your close quarters maneuvering skills on a timed agility course and try to beat all the others on a dumper truck. Drive immense dirt diggers, dumpers, or spin till dizzy on the Spindizzy, or take in the scenery as you traverse the park by train.
There are some of the rides for children exclusively, too: these include the Mini Landrovers and Go Karts.
The park also has several coin operated rides, and there are play areas and sandpits for the really young, giving you a chance to relax and enjoy their fun. For more information, visit the website of Diggerland Yorkshire.
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.
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.
