If your kids are into monster trucks, this is the place for you! They have some on display and some are being worked on in the shop. There is also a ride on a dirt track in the back of one of the trucks (for a nominal fee).

Hwy 158 north 25 minutes from Kitty Hawk . Great for kids of all ages who love Monster trucks. Lots of photo ops with trucks on site and fun gift shop. We will go back when it's fully open to check out the restaurant and ride one of the trucks. Just up the road from Weeping Radish Brewery

They have various farm animals (goats and birds mostly) Monster trucks on the grounds that you can go right up to and touch, and of course if you hit the place at the right... More

You can however enjoy the gift shop and take home pieces of previous diggers should you wish in addition to a whole new... More

We stopped in here on our way to our vacation in Buxton. The store was great to pick up neat memorabilia, postcards, and shirts to send/show to friends. We went on the off-season so they were not offering rides nor did they have any of the outdoor stands set up, but we did take a few pics of some vehicles... More

We enjoyed our visit to Grave Digger on our way to Outerbanks. Nice stop for a break, especially with kids. Small playground, live animals, monster truck rides, grave digger store, and bathroom with diaper changing area.

Went there with my brother in law and 3 kids age 8-10. Real good breakfast . We took the monster truck ride and the kids all loved it. In the souvenir shop we happened to run into Adam & Ryan and the signed all the stuff we were buying, both were very nice!

Ride on a monster truck for $5 a person. Get a peak into one of the garages they work on the trucks. The store is a little pricey, but not terribly expensive.

Nice little stop if you're having a long journey. Stopped there with my niece and nephews for breakfast. Lovely staff that work in the diner, the souvenir shop was average but very good for children. Slightly let down as the monster truck had stopped working just after we bought our tickets. So the children had a little tantrum over that.... More
