Enjoy 90 minutes of fun-fuelled hands-on driving time
Includes entry to Diggerland and its many rides and attractions
Take the wheel of eight tons of industrial metal with this fun-fuelled JCB driving experience at Diggerland in Kent. Start with a welcome introduction and a full safety briefing before climbing into the driving seat of the construction giant to get ready for action! Then it's time for the main event - use the JCB's controls to dig, fill holes, move earth, steer and drive under the expert tuition of one of the park's professional instructors. Afterwards, feel free to spend the rest of the day enjoying Diggerland, Kent and all of the fun-filled rides and attractions it has to offer. This is a brilliant and very unusual driving day out!
