Good day out with a friend and my two god kids I would never pay 19.95 each so glad I had two for one vouchers made it worth it. Was a hot day, staff friendly but it seemed everything we got too kept breaking down and had to go back, with the park not been busy it wasn't an issue... More

We visited Diggerland last Saturday for my son's 5th birthday. The weather was pretty bad but got better, not that it got us down. The park is well situated with ample car parking and tarmaced pathways. All of the attractions appear to be pretty much brand new with lots of variety to choose from. I appreciate that as the weather... More

2 adults and a 4 year old boy, great day out for all of us!! Entertained for 4 hours and could have stayed for more. Great for young kids they can see everything that is going on without being overwhelmed making it easy to move around. Loads to do so not much waiting around in queues. Friendly staff, reasonably priced... More

We went here for my sons 4th Birthday as he is construction obsessed. I was expecting somewhere that would easily fill a full day but the park really isn't that big and you can easily get round it in an hour. Admittedly we didn't really have to queue for anything as it was a cold blustery day. Some of ghetto... More
