I’ll be honest, I had never even heard of Diggerland until we were invited for the day. But what a day it was! We went to the Kent park, but you can visit Diggerland in Devon, Yorkshire and Durham too.
I was lucky enough to have my nephew, Michael (11) staying for the weekend so along with Erin (3) and Rory (1), I wondered if there would be enough to cater for all ages and there absolutely was! In fact it’s perfect for families as it’s a small park, meaning you can keep an eye on them doing different activities if you want to and lots of the activities are accessible for little ones, providing they’re with an adult!
We loved that because it wasn’t too busy, the queues didn’t take long so Michael and Erin could go in whichever activity they wanted, as many times as they wanted – there’s nothing worse than having to queue for hours at a theme park!
When I asked Erin what her favourite part of the day was, she jumped up and down exclaiming, “All of the diggers!” We took it in turns to take her on the different diggers to rescue the ducks, hunt for treasure or just dig a great big hole! She was even brave enough to tackle ‘Spin Dizzy’ but this didn’t go down so well!!
And Michael couldn’t believe his luck when he realised he’d be able to drive a real car around the track. He’s dying to get back to school after half term to show the photos off to his mates!
Rory was a bit too little for the big diggers but still had great fun in the Little Tikes cars and all three absolutely loved the indoor soft play area.
We also sampled the Digger Diner and for 5 meals with drinks came to about £40 – I massively recommend the burgers!!
So thanks for having us Diggerland – we’ll definitely be back to take that Jeep for another spin! Pssst… if you book Diggerland tickets online in advance, they are only £19.99pp.
(Tickets were gifted but all views are my own.)
