Diggerland USA Discounts are Available for Summer 2018
Children have always had a fascination with digging and machinery. They can spend hours with a shovel digging their way to China. When they walk or drive by a construction site, they can stay for the longest time, mesmerized by the cranes, front loaders, cherry pickers and other large trucks. Bob the Builder has been a favorite children’s program for years for this very reason. And who doesn’t have fond memories of playing with their Tonka trucks?
In England, Hugh Edeleanu, who was the largest supplier construction machinery for hire in Europe. He had the idea of creating a children’s theme park based on these machines after having families attend an Open House and the kids had a ball sitting in the construction machinery.
In April 2000, he opened a theme park with one concept in mind-all rides and attractions had to be construction based.
This concept has now come “across the pond”, as Diggerland USA has now opened in the southern New Jersey town of West Berlin. Located right next to Sahara Sam's Indoor Water Park, this new family park looks like another way for South Jersey and Pennsylvania families to have quality time and fun together.
Here is a Preview of What This Park is About
What Can Find at Diggerland USA?
There are many fun things for kids and adults to do once they go to the park. Most of park amusements are made from modified JCB heavy construction equipment pieces. For example, instead of a carousel, there is a Diggeround, where there are construction vehicles instead of horses and carriages and the Sky Shuttle is an elevated Telehandler. The Spin Dizzy does just that-it spins you in the air at a great elevated height!
Adults can ride on the Giant Diggers, which are excavation machines, while children use the smaller versions of this attraction. It is like a Tonka truck has come to life! There are several other digger attractions for children to use and keep them happily busy for hours!
In addition to the rides, there is a Kids Zone just for younger children to play in. For older kids and adults, there is a Rock Wall and a Ropes Course. There is even the Excavator Express, which is like a train ride. Just sit back, relax, and take a tour of the park. This venue even has an arcade for those who like to play these kinds of games.
