Looking for a day out with a difference? Then look no further than Diggerland, a theme park where you can experience the thrills of driving real JCB earthmoving equipment. The idea was the brainchild of Hugh Edeleanu, Chairman of HE Services (Plant Hire) Ltd, the largest supplier of construction machinery hire in Europe. He hit on the idea following Plant Hire family open days where the children's fascination of machinery and their enjoyment levels were obvious. The concept of Diggerland was born, with the first park opened in Kent during 2000. The popularity continued to grow and by 2007 there were four parks nationwide, each one offering over 16 rides and drives based on construction machinery. Come and see what it's all about.
The park is open at weekends and bank holidays from February to the end of October and seven days a week during local school holidays. It closes during November, December and January.
Children (under 13) must be accompanied and supervised by their guardian(s). Height restrictions apply on all rides/drives and those under 90cm are too small. Some children may also need to be accompanied on some rides/drives by an adult.
Diggerland is predominantly an outdoor experience but, although rare, they may restrict some rides in the event of very poor weather.
The park opens at 10am and guests are free to stay until 5pm (or 4pm in February).
Any additional adults or children (aged 3 and over) can pay on the day to enter Diggerland. The parks do not allow entry of dogs, with the exception of guide dogs. Why not take your own picnic?
Please dress for comfort and wear suitable footwear such as trainers or wellies. There is a chance that you may get a little muddy, so bringing a change of footwear is a good idea.
Diggerland does not permit the use of bbqs. Although not included in the price, empty tummies can be refuelled at The Dig Inn, with a selection of snacks, burgers, salads etc (be aware credit cards are not accepted in the food area).
