Sherene Garvin-Mack, from Diggerland commented, “Diggerland sponsored the Kent Teacher of the Year Awards in 2018, and after seeing the incredible standard from the wonderful teaching and non teaching staff as well as the volunteers, I couldn’t be more excited to sponsor the 2019 event.”

Diggerland Checklist - Perfect for Family Days Out

With less than a month till our 2019 season, get ahead and start planning your family days out today! We have put together a top 5 checklist for you, to make sure you are fully prepared for a brilliant day out at our parks.

 

Bring a change of clothes

Whatever time of the year you visit, please remember that you may get muddy, dirty or even dusty. All of our rides are located outside and it does involve climbing in and out of machines. We would hate to see you get wet or ruin any of your nice clothes. We always advise our customers to bring a rain mac/waterproof, and keep a change of clothes in the car in case you do need to change.

Spare pair of shoes

There is a chance that your feet may get wet, and especially muddy if you are climbing into machines. We strongly advise bringing a spare pair of shoes with you to change into, especially during the colder months. We would also recommend not wearing your best trainers or open toed shoes. You will not be permitted to ride on attractions if you turn up in sandals, due to health and safety. When you visit our Diggerland parks we do have wellies on sale in our Gift Shop that would definitely make a lovely pair of spare shoes! Plan ahead and order yours today here!

Don’t forget your lunch!

When you arrive at our Diggerland theme parks you will soon realise that it’s going to occupy the kids for a whole day, so make sure you bring your lunch. Whether you want to enjoy the outdoors, and take advantage of our picnic tables around the park, or use our indoor facilities in the damper weather you can. We also have Dig Inn, our onsite eatery that stock hot food, cold food, snacks and refreshments. Perfect for family days out!

 

Check out our ride height chart before you arrive

All of our attractions have height restrictions, and anyone who is over 90cm can get on the majority of our 20 different rides & drives. If you are travelling with younger children we always advise our guests to check against our ride height chart and measure their children before they arrive. We wouldn’t want to disappoint anyone!

 

Pre-book your tickets if you have your day planned in advance

If you’re planning your family days out in advance, why not pre-book your tickets here for a specific day. You will then receive your tickets at a discount price of £19.95pp for anyone who is over 90cm, and you’ll be ready to go for the season ahead.
