Owner description: Diggerland is The Ultimate Adventure Theme Park Experience where children and adults alike can ride, drive and operate REAL diggers, dumpers and other full- size construction machinery. Diggerland is the perfect destination for action, fun and thrill packed family days out. Fun for all ages (subject to height restrictions), Diggerland with its 20 different rides and drives and an array of additional activities is the ideal theme park for small to large groups looking for something exciting and truly unique. Get to grips with real JCBs and 180/360 excavators, take a head-reeling turn or two on the Spindizzy, rise to lofty heights and enjoy the views on the Skyshuttle, enjoy an off-road ride on the Groundshuttle, or have a go on the Dodgems and Go-Karts!

Brought our children along on a super soggy good Friday, all diggers and rides were running. Staff super friendly as ever - one young lady working there even offered to let a little boy who was upset and cold wear her gloves.
To our delight there was hardly any queues due to the weather so our boys were straight on the diggers, and repeatedly riding due to no one waiting!
Normally we would arrive at open and leave at close, although wrapped up and prepared for rain we got too cold and wet after 3 hours. But the children had ridden everything possible multiple times, so we didn't mind leaving so early.
The children can't wait to re visit - they'd hoped to have their party at diggerland....but terrible mum left it too late to book the suitable time oooops!

Children enjoyed the 4 hours we spent there. Very quiet day which meant no queues. Not everything is included in the entrance price eg dogems. Wrap up warm as location is very exposed. The park was not as big as I was expecting. Value for money - Average

Hello there,

Thank you for your review.

We are pleased to hear that your family enjoyed their day out to Diggerland Kent.

Please kindly be advised that all of the main 20 rides and drives are included within your entry price. The Diggerland website and literature displays information regarding the dodgems and coin operated machines to be at an additional cost which are of course optional.

Please note the machines we use are real JCB diggers and dumpers and the attachments have been especially adapted in accordance with the Health and Safety Executive (HSE), therefore costing hundreds of thousands of pounds.

In addition, we do provide various special offers in local and national newspapers/magazines and other publications as well as online. In accordance we provide offers to our mailing list subscribers, should you wish to benefit from any offers for future visits.

We hope to see you again soon.

Best wishes,
Diggerland

We had a family visit to Diggerland for our sons 4th birthday. It was brilliant. It was a little wet and muddy which added to the fun. Our 4 year old was able to go on some things alone and others accompanied by an adult. He was so excited. The main thing that added to our lovely day out was the absolutely fantastic customer service. Every single member of staff that we encountered were polite, smiley and asked us if we were having a good day. They all spoke to our little boy with interest and enthusiasm. This included those that were manning the rides and in the cafeteria. We were hugely impressed with how your members staff dealt with some tricky situations with other customers. Very professional. Such a great day!

We came here for a day out over Easter. It does seem a bit expensive but it is a completely different day out to a standard theme park.
There were hardly any queues so you could go on things more than once.
We spent a few hours there but would have stayed longer if the weather was a bit better.
There's plenty to do for kids and adults (although us adults weren't allowed on the go-karts or crazy carts).
Our ten year old loved it, especially the crazy carts and driving the police land rover.
Us adults loved the tyre stacking ride!
The hook a duck and skittles games are also pretty fun.
The food is expensive and is nothing special, however they did allow us all to have a kids meal, which some places won't allow. The photo on the Spindizzy ride is also expensive at £10.
It can be a bit muddy so wellies are probably best.
I would definitely recommend for boys of all ages.

Visited Diggerland, Strood with my family for a session of dumper racing, booked as a birthday present. Had a great time, the staff there seem to enjoy it more than the customers, encouraged by Dave, the manager. I had been there before with my grandchildren and, as always, we were made to feel welcome and nothing was to much trouble. Quite fancy having another go, although the general opinion was don't give up the day job!
