Dilan absolutely adores diggers, dumper trucks, tractors and all kinds of heavy machinery – like a lot of children do I’m sure. We’ve spent hours stood at the side of building sites watching the machines in action, and his toy box is over flowing with miniature versions. But it’s not often he gets the chance to ride, or even drive (yes – actually be in full control of) the real thing, so when Diggerland invited us to come visit again we were very excited.
Diggerland is definitely an incredible place for a digger-loving child (or adult) to visit. The theme park is full of real, full size, genuine construction machinery for the whole family to have a go on – and it’s pretty amazing. There are JCBs and excavators to operate, dumper trucks to drive as well as dodgems and go karts to have a go on.
The park also offers an indoor play area, outdoor sandpit and play area, and has a great cafe for lunch. There isn’t that much shade around the park so if it’s hot I’d highly recommend hats and lots of sun cream. Most rides are suitable for the whole family but I would definitely say it’s best to wait until everyone is over 0.9m as that’s the minimum height for a lot of the rides. Last time we went Dil was slightly under 1m which meant he missed out on a few things but this time he was tall enough to do everything he wanted to do.
