Dumper Truck Racing for Two at Diggerland
Choose from multiple experiences
Find out just how agile the monstrous dumper truck can be by taking it for a spin around a specially designed race course. You'll begin with a full safety briefing before becoming acquainted with your forcible truck for some initial training. Despite their build, these vehicles are actually surprisingly nimble and zippy. Once you have got to grips with the controls, you'll race your dumper around a pre-determined course, in an attempt to beat other racers whilst avoiding penalties. The fastest drivers will go head-to-head in a grand final. Do you have what it takes to be the champ?
