PL Projects Ltd at Diggerland – Friday 23rd September 2016, The Bronze Package.20160923_183952-1

“Firstly, can we say what a fantastic reception we had from everyone at Diggerland Yorkshire.  The booking process was easy, you were flexible and helpful when we needed to make number changes, and we were made to feel really welcome on-site by your very friendly team.  

We chose The Bronze Package, which included the Dippy Ducks Challenge, Robot Relay racing and Blindfolded 4×4 racing. The highlight of the event for us was the Blindfolded 4×4 race – it’s really disorientating, and a few of us ran into earth banks and got stuck in potholes! But your staff helped us out every time and made sure we could all have a good laugh about it. 

Overall, the event was a really great way to team-build, and we would definitely recommend Diggerland Corporate events to other businesses looking for an idea that’s a little bit different, quite a challenge, and genuinely good fun. Thanks from all the team at PLP!!”

Diggerland corporate events are extremely popular and do book up quickly, therefore we would recommend providing plenty of notice. Do not be deterred however if your event is just around the corner, we always aim to accommodate and deliver wherever we can. Get in touch for packages and prices.

Pokemon at Diggerland

Disclaimer: Please note Diggerland do not claim to have a Mewtwo PokemonGo character located at any of the Diggerland parks. Please do not actively pay for admission to try and find this legendary Pokemon. Nobody knows the whereabouts of this Pokemon and Diggerland is in no way definitely stating that a Mewtwo is located at any of the parks. If you are lucky enough to catch one at any of the 4 UK Diggerland theme parks, well you are in for a real treat! 


Kids have been going crazy at Diggerland theme parks, as a new mobile game that has become a global phenomenon was unleashed in the UK.


Pokemon Go, a game that allows players to use the GPS on their mobile phones to catch Pokemon in order to train and battle, has taken the world by storm.


Created by the owner of Google Maps, the app works by the player walking to various locations to collect Pokemon. Landmarks such as churches, attractions, small and large businesses have all become hotspots, with people visiting all kinds of places just to collect these awesome virtual critters.


Children and even parents at Diggerland have been downloading the new Pokemon game so that they can catch all of the Pokemon located at Diggerland UK-based theme parks.


A ‘Gym’ is also located at Diggerland, a big blue tower that cannot be missed on one’s smart phone when playing the app. The ‘Gym’ is an arena for battling other trainers Pokemon to try and achieve ‘prestige’ points.


Diggerland decided to ask some customers what they thought of the game.


There seemed to be pros and cons with some customers thinking the app was a good idea to get children outdoors and moving, with other parents expressing concerns that the app could be dangerous in the sense that children would not concentrate on their surroundings and may face dangerous situations.



Watch this video to hear what Diggerland’s customers had to say.


Diggerland’s Digital Marketing Executive, Celia Kelly has some advice for parents allowing children to play the Pokemon Go game or indeed for the parents playing the game themselves. “It’s a great game and wonderful to see children and adults getting involved, but just be careful when catching Pokemon to keep your wits about you. Remember not to play when driving, crossing roads or whilst supervising children, as this game could be a real distraction.”
