A novel take on a theme park, some interesting and original rides. On balance well worth a visit. The ride on the telelifter & the large excavator which spins you were particularly good. Great to seeing places like this making chargers for electric cars available. We asked permission from the staff and plugged in. A bit annoying when we returned... More

We went the first weekend it opened this year. Freezing cold and raining. Staff stood in rain operating rides - good humoured and helpful. Nice indoor softplay and cafe. Great jcb experiences for adults and kids alike. A thoroughly enjoyable day

Great day out for everyone. Price on the door is expensive, but everything is free once inside. Boys and girls love it equally..A must see. Spin dizzy is better than the rides at some major theme parks.(in my opinion)

Had an awesome but cold day out here today. Kids loved it. Plenty to do and good bonus with the indoor soft play being free. Tip to remember bring plenty of pound coins as our kids loved the indoor go karting track. Will definitely be back in the summer when a bit warmer

My husband had got tickets using his credit card points and to be honest we only went because of this and as the tickets were due to run out. So we went over on a Sunday afternoon with our two girls aged 3 and 5. We had an amazing time far outweighed our expectations. My husband and me were dragging... More

My 3 year old loved this place - as did his Dad! As long as your child is 1 metre tall your kids can go on almost all the rides and there's a great selection of diggers, trucks, and other fairground type rides (but all with a construction theme). If your child is below 1 metre e.g. 2 years of... More

I've been to Diggerland twice before with various grandchildren and they've loved it. This time it was Grandad's turn! Ninety minutes of the Monster Digger experience. If you have any enthusiasm for things mechanical this is a must. Instructor, Steve, was very patient ( he needed to be) and before long reach, lift, and scooping were all co ordinated.The final...

Visited during October half term so managed to get some tickets for £10 each, personally don't feel that full price would be good value and well over priced We had a 2 1/2 year old with us (although he is quite tall for his age) and managed to go on quite a number of the attractions. Plenty of toilet facilities... More
