'Diggerland' is the name of a family-friendly theme park based around the subject of diggers and JCB's (vehicles used for the purpose of digging or excavating). There are infact four different 'Diggerland' parks across the UK, in Strood, Kent; Verbeer Manor, Devon; Langley Park, Durham and Castleford in West Yorkshire, all of which are owned by the excavator hire firm 'H.E. Services'.
Each 'Diggerland' even has its very own digger Stunt Team, who expertly put on mind-blowing shows every other year, pushing the diggers to their limits and performing amazing stunts. These stunt teams also performed in the 2008 Kent County Fair and the Great Yorkshire Show.
Other racing shows and events take place at Diggerland every year between March and October, and include spectacles such as monthly dumper racing.
No that high speed racing is all Diggerland has to offer - Diggerland Yorkshire boasts some lovely country walks and a safe, indoor play area for the kids, while Diggerland Devon offers some splendid camping at the Verbeer Manor site opposite the park.
Did you know, Diggerland had a temporary theme park in Dubai, during the summer of 2005, and has even been feautured on the British TV Programme DIY SOS!
Full price entry to Diggerlans is £14.99 per adult (when booked in advance online), £7.95 for those aged 65+, and is free for children under 90cms tall.
