Disclosure: I was provided tickets to Diggerland to facilitate this review. All opinions are 100% my own.
If you’re looking for fun things to do with your family AND have a little one who loves construction equipment, you absolutely MUST visit Diggerland this spring. Located in West Berlin, NJ, Diggerland is a construction themed amusement park where you can steer, drive, and operate construction machinery and vehicles.
Made from JCB equipment modified for extra safety, the rides at Diggerland offer a construction-based experience like no other! You construction-loving kiddos (and you) will LOVE operating diggers, driving tractors, skidsteers and backhoes through obstacle courses, and racing mini-Land Rovers around the kid-friendly track! If you haven’t gotten your fill after all that excitement, you can ride the Spin Dizzy, Excavator Express, Ground Shuttle, Sky Shuttle, or Dig-a-round (my favorite), a construction style carousel.
Though the rides are designed mostly for children 36″ and taller, there is still plenty for the littler kiddos to enjoy. My 2 year-old couldn’t get enough of the barrel train (pulled by a dumper truck!) and Kid Zone playground (awesome slides), while my 1 year-old was beyond thrilled to hang out on the swing set and to watch the trucks in action during the impressive stunt show.
In addition to all the construction fun, Diggerland also offers a giant rock climbing wall, an awesome 4-story ropes course (the world’s tallest!), a gift shop, cafe (french fries, how I love thee), and an arcade. If you’re still in the mood for some fun after a day at Diggerland, you can head right next door to Sahara Sam’s Indoor Water Park.
Our family had a wonderful time at Diggerland! Besides the excitement of all things construction, the park is exceptionally clean and the staff is very friendly and conscientious. Our kids were absolutely thrilled to see their favorite construction gear up close and personal, and frankly, we were too! It doesn’t matter how old you are, Diggerland really is buckets of fun for everyone.
Emily’s Tip: Seniors over 65 and children under 36″ are free.
