A really nice Vintage Flying Experience within easy reach of Durham, County Durham.
Diggerland offers the whole family an action-packed day out. The innovative idea was the brainchild of Hugh Edeleanu, Chairman of HE Services (Plant Hire) Limited, the largest supplier of construction machinery hire in Europe when he saw during company open days just how popular the heavy machinery was and in 2000, the first park opened. Each Diggerland park has 20 rides and drives based on construction machinery. Drive a dumper truck or a JCB, enjoy a mystery ride in the Land Rover Safari, a panoramic view from The Sky Shuttle, experience the thrill of riding in Spindizzy or test co-ordination in the JCB mini challenges.
The park is open at weekends and bank holidays from February to the end of October and seven days a week during local school holidays. It closes during November, December and January.
Diggerland is predominantly an outdoor experience but, although rare, they may restrict some rides in the event of very poor weather.
The park opens at 10am and guests are welcome to stay until 5pm (or 4pm in February).
Additional adults or children (over 90 cms) can pay on the day to enter Diggerland. The parks do not allow entry of dogs, with the exception of guide dogs. Why not take your own picnic?
Please dress for comfort and wear suitable footwear such as trainers or wellies. There is a chance that you may get a little muddy, so bringing a change of footwear is a good idea.
Children (under 13) must be accompanied and supervised by their guardian(s). Height restrictions apply on all rides/drives and those under 90cm are too small. Some children may also need to be accompanied on some rides/drives by an adult.
Diggerland does not permit the use of bbqs. Although not included in the price, empty tummies can be refuelled at The Dig Inn, with a selection of snacks, burgers, salads etc (be aware credit cards are not accepted in the food area).
