Now that you’re ready the time for letting loose has begun. The overwhelming range of rides provide hours full of digging fun which is perfect for erasing that pre-wedding stress! 

Hen party spirit!

Friendly competition always brings out the best in friendships. We recommend testing your limits on:

  • Dippy Ducks– Don’t be fooled by the cute name as this ride will test your skills to the limit. The mission is to hook a small duck out of a pool of water using a Komatsu PC14. 
  • Stack Attack– This ride is eye-watering tough, try to compete against your girlfriends to see who has the most patience. The aim of the game is all about balancing tyres using a special digging attachment that was built for purpose. Basically, Jenga with tyres! 
  • Formula JCB Driving– Any friends with a need for speed? This event would need to be booked separately but it is well worth including in your hen party. Race around in one of our JCBs to test who is the best behind the wheel!

For the Team Players!

Theme parks are a fantastic way of getting closer to your besties thanks to the bountiful memories it provides. Enjoying rides together as a team results in an avalanche of fun whilst you scream and laugh hand in hand! For example:

  • Spindizzy– Digger please! This monster ride is sure to have a few friends jumping out of their boots. Once you’re all safely buckled in let the fun begin and get ready to be shaken and stirred by a massive Komatsu PC210LC. This ride is definitely not for the faint hearted! 
  • Skyshuttle– Fear of heights? Experience a birds eye point of view on this 50 feet ride. You will see the world from a new perspective. We believe this is the perfect ride for your hen party selfies! 
  • Groundshuttle– The name is self explanatory as this ride is the polar opposite of the famous Skyshuttle. It is perfect for some ground time so be ready for some rock and rolling. We guarantee this ride will get everyone’s heart racing so far what an exhilarating hen party!

Still unsure?

As you can see, the proof is in the pudding. We know it’s not your typical hen party but that’s why we think it’s amazing. Priceless memories and giggles with your favorite people, isn’t that a dream?  Diggerland provides all of the above.

Fun Days Out in the UK

How can visiting a UK Theme Park calm your January blues?

With the festive season coming to an end, many of us will sadly be experiencing a case of the January blues. So, why not start planning your summer treats? As we approach warmer weather it’s vital to start planning trips to make the most of your time off.

Sun-filled days are approaching so families across the UK will start eagerly devising outings to a selection of attractions. For instance, venturing to the delightful seashore, strolling around lush gardens or enjoying the time of your life at a local Theme Park. To aid your fun in the sun schedules we’ve created a list of our top UK Theme Parks!

Our Top 3 UK Theme Park Attractions

Diggerland

It may seem biased, but we honestly believe our rides offer the most exhilarating experiences and life-long memories. We are the only Digger themed Theme park in the UK, offering a range of one of a kind experiences. A summer trip to Diggerland is sure to be a hit with kids of all ages, with plenty of areas for parents to relax in the sun. You can visit us in Kent, Devon, Durham & Yorkshire, the Diggerland experience is sure to be unique and action packed! For the perfect summer pick up why not purchase tickets for our special event, the Diggerland 20th Birthday Gala Party. This special event provides ticket holders a range of entertainment, a buffet and unlimited roam on all of our rides. Pick up event tickets for just £25.00 per person for any four of our parks! 

 

Although we are closed during January, there are a few ways that we can still ease you through the tiring month. By pre booking your tickets in advance, you will then have a spectacular day to look forward to, during a time that most people find particularly depressing, especially if you plan to visit us in February Half Term! 

Thinking of ways for children to earn pocket money, for which they can spend in our magnificent Goodie Store, will also be a fun activity to take part in during January, and will help the time pass until we open again in February. This may also count as a good incentive!

Legoland

Based on the famous building block toys that we all grew up playing with, Legoland is a UK Theme Park based in Windsor. This well-known park was built in 1996 and now has theme parks in over 12 countries with more on the way! With a focus on learning, kids will have the chance to construct, role play and participate in driving simulations. But the best part of Legoland, absolutely everything is made of Lego!

Paultons Park 

Paultons Park, similarly to Diggerland, is an award winning theme park situated in the charming town of Hampshire. With an array of attractions dotted throughout 140 acres of land, this UK Theme Park is also great for families. Paultons Park offers a chance for visitors to stay over for short breaks for as little as £49.00 including Hotel and Park tickets.

Diggerland Campsite

For those of you that are already daydreaming of the hot sun and blue skies, you’ll be pleased to know that our Diggerland Campsite, located at our Devon park, will be open once again from the 27th March 2020. Our campsite is the perfect place for outdoorsy families to really take in the fresh air and enjoy some quality time together.

Located on the same complex as the Diggerland Theme Park itself, you are surrounded by an abundance of activities and fun.

How to Enjoy Driving on a Digger if you have Motion Sickness

Enjoying your day out at Diggerland Theme Park

If you have motion sickness but you have always dreamed of manning your own digger, know that there are both natural and medical approaches that can ensure you have the time of your life at Diggerland Theme Park!

If you have motion sickness, then know that it is usually something that passes, and that sometimes, it just involves feeling a little dizzy for a couple of minutes.

Motion sickness is not actually a disease; it is no more than a normal response to, because there is a difference between what we are focusing on (a fixed point in our environment) and the movement of our vehicle.

Dig-a-Round at Diggerland Theme Park

Kids and Women can be more prone to Motion Sickness

Motion sickness is rare in toddlers. In fact, it reaches its peak by the age of 12, declining between 12 and 21.

At Diggerland Theme Park, children from the age of two to sixteen or seventeen can drive a digger, so by this time they should be just fine.

Also, if by any chance they feel like enjoying another activity, they will be happy to know that there are many rides and activities to choose from. There is a sizeable indoor play area featuring slides, bouncy castles, arcade games, and more.

Preventing Motion Sickness at Diggerland Theme Park

Battling nausea and wooziness while travelling is important if the journey is to be enjoyed. One way to do so is through prevention. Researchers at Siena College found that feeling stressed can make you feel more symptoms of motion sickness.

Children can benefit from knowing that although riding a digger at Diggerland Theme Park is a different experience, they can feel more in control if they drive the digger themselves.

They should know what to expect, but be encouraged to take a chilled out stance to any potential symptoms. They should know that they can simply get off if they are feeling a tiny bit dizzy, and take place in a plethora of other activities with their siblings and parents.

Dumper Trucks at Diggerland Theme Park

Natural Approaches to Motion Sickness

Some natural methods people use to quell motion sickness include consuming ginger (in the form of a ginger ‘shot’ or by chewing on candied ginger). A ginger shot can be a little too strong for younger children, but older teens will probably enjoy naturally squeezed ginger juice blended with orange juice, or a cup of tea that has been infused with ginger.

Acupressure has been found to be useful for nausea, meanwhile. A study by researchers at the Center for Advancing Health found that stimulating an acupoint on the wrist can help reduce this symptom of motion sickness. To be precise, pressure should be applied to the pericardium (P6) point, located around two inches from the base of the palm, on the inner side of the wrist.

Use your thumb to apply gentle pressure to this spot, and make sure you target both wrists. Eating a small amount of food can also be helpful, so give your child a healthy snack a few minutes before they get on the digger. Ensure the snack isn’t heavy or greasy so it does not strain their digestive system.

What about Medication?

For people that have serious motion sickness, doctors sometimes describe medications like Dramamine, which is safe for children aged two and above.

In some cases, medications for motion sickness can cause drowsiness. Therefore, the decision of whether or not to give these should be taken after discussion with a paediatrician.

Keeping stress down and expectations realistic will help stave off symptoms, and you should also try natural remedies such as ginger. Finally, remember to bring light, healthy, sugar- and fat-free snacks that will help ensure your child enjoys his or her first digger drive to the full!

Dippy Ducks at Diggerland Theme Park

If you are planning a visit to Diggerland Theme Park, know that there are so many activities available that kids or parents with motion sickness should know that they will have a good time.

Diggerland’s tips for hosting the family on Christmas Day

Christmas Day is one of those wonderful – yet slightly stressful – days of the year. As well as scouting out the perfect turkey or trying to come up with original, thoughtful gifts (we’d recommend our Christmas gift vouchers if you’re stuck for ideas!), there’s the small matter of hosting – a responsibility that a fair few people shy away from.  

In fact, a recent campaign carried out by retailer Next found that in December 2018, 110 people Googled the phrase “how to tell family you’re not hosting Christmas” – an increase of 100% from the year before. 

Aside from all things dinner-related like portion sizes, setting the table and making sure everybody’s got enough to eat, there’s also the small matter of entertaining the children – who, by about midday, are likely to be hyped up on sugar and presents. 

We’ve put together a couple of tips to help your Christmas Day run smoothly.

Girl opening presents - Christmas Gift Vouchers

Tip 1: Decide when to open presents

Present etiquette can be hard to get right. Do you open in the morning or the afternoon? Pre-dinner or post-dinner? What if you’ve already opened your gifts but your guests and their children haven’t? 

To avoid any unnecessary tears and restlessness on the part of the little ones, establish when gift-giving will take place ahead of the big day. That way, you’re all aligned and each child can open his/her presents at the same time as the others. 

If you’re stuck for gifting ideas, we’d recommend going for an experience rather than a product or toy that’ll likely be tossed to the side in a couple of years. Our gift vouchers allow entry into the Diggerland adventure park with access to all rides and drives for the day – perfect for adults and children alike and a great way to encourage your kids to get out and about.

Tip 2: Stagger sugar consumption throughout the day

Christmas Day is a day of food, food, food (a lot of which is high in sugar!) which is why it’s a good idea to try and stagger your children’s sugar consumption throughout the day to avoid them becoming too hyper too soon. 

Try and shift their focus to something other than what they’re putting in their mouths – for example, by setting up an arts and crafts corner. There are plenty of printable materials available online and we recommend a Christmas card-related activity – great for any little ones that have forgotten to write mummy and daddy a card.

Christmas Dinner - Christmas Gift Vouchers

Tip 3: Set up activity stations

Although arts and crafts is a great way to fuel children’s creativity, it may be that some of your tinier guests are keener on getting out and about and moving around.

Try and schedule periods throughout the day when some of the adults can go for a wander and take the kids (those who want to go) with them. If you’re hosting and taking charge of the cooking, you might appreciate some of your guests disappearing for a little while, leaving you in peace to get on with dinner prep or clearing up. 

Similarly, some of the children might feel like watching a Christmas film. Set up a movie viewing area in the living room for those that feel like cuddling up and watching something.

By having lots of different activity stations, restlessness and possible tantrums become less likely. 

Tip 4: Consider investing in a kids’ table

Christmas Day is as much about the adults as it is about the children – and we know that many mums and dads yearn for a little bit of alone time.

To give the grown-ups some time to catch up, consider making one part of the dinner table specifically for the kids. Or, invest in a smaller, separate table if you have the space.

We hope we’ve given you some useful tips for hosting Christmas Day with family. Diggerland opens again in February (you can see the opening times here) – why not give the gift of an experience this Christmas and buy your family some of our gift vouchers

Room décor tips for the ultimate digger fan

We have compiled a list of ideas below on how Diggerland Theme Park can help turn your child’s bedroom into a magical, digger-themed world!

A recent survey commissioned by Next has found that parents’ most popular dream theme when decorating their children’s rooms is “Animal” followed by “Jungle/Forest”. 

But we know better than anyone that a lot of kids are very into diggers and JCBs, jumping at the chance to have a digger-themed space. But what does that look like, exactly?

Read on for some tips on digger-themed décor; what furnishings to go for, what colour scheme is best and what products we recommend for the ultimate digger fan.

Paint decorating - Diggerland Theme Park

Colours & Walls

When it comes to colour, we recommend opting for a yellowy/beige colour scheme to match the typical colour of diggers and JCBs.

In fact, nowadays over half of parents opt for neutral or bright colours like yellow, as opposed to traditional pinks and blues. In a shift away from traditional gendered colour schemes, 57% of parents prefer greys, yellows or other neutral shades to decorate a child’s room – according to Next’s survey. 

What’s more, yellow is “energising and uplifting” according to colour psychologist June McLeod, suggesting this particular scheme will have a positive impact on your little one’s mood. 

If you’re using paint, find one that’s free of VOCs (volatile organic compounds) as these can let off harmful gases. Alternatively, invest in some digger wall stickers (Pinterest has some great ideas for how these can be used to jazz up the décor). Wall stickers are great because they’re easy to apply and remove, and since parents redecorate their children’s rooms and nurseries every 23 months on average, it’s important to invest in décor that can be altered and changed with ease.

Toys & Stationery from Diggerland Theme Park

Just because the bulk of the room is likely to be more neutral doesn’t mean to say bright colours shouldn’t be present. We recommend introducing the full spectrum of colours via toys and furnishings. Young children love to play with colourful toys while older children tend to express themselves in many different ways with colour. What’s more, brightly coloured toys and equipment can be easily moved or stored away to create a more restful atmosphere for quieter times. 

Ultimately, toys are a fundamental part of a child’s room and make the space feel homey and personalised – and for digger fans, there’s a wealth to choose from. 

At Diggerland Theme Park, we’ve got teddy bears and soft digger toys to make those restless nights a little more bearable for your tots. Meanwhile, retro Top Trumps Adventure Days offers hours of weekend fun.  

If your child is in primary school, get them kitted out with digger-themed stationery. These may just make those projects and homework assignments slightly more fun and enjoyable!

Clothes

Update your child’s wardrobe with digger-themed clothes – this might make morning wardrobe battles a little more bearable! You can find a range of clothing options on both the Diggerland website and on Next too.

From wellies and socks to different types of tops, Next have the ultimate digger fan catered for – and their pieces will no doubt add a bit of colour to your child’s wardrobe. 

You can even create a personalised digger top (a great Christmas present for digger fans!) 

Mum & Son at Diggerland Theme Park

We hope we’ve given you some food for thought when it comes to decorating with the ultimate digger fan in mind.

Unique Gift Ideas For Her

Diggerland Gift Vouchers make the perfect gift for many reasons.

Make it personal

You can make your gift card to your perfect lady as personal as you wish. Include a special message and really let her know you care.

Give her the gift of time

We all know how busy everyone’s lives are now, especially for ladies. Ladies are forever running around! If they’re not chasing after the kids, they’re doing the housework. As well as probably trying to hold down a full time job. That’s why a Diggerland gift voucher is the perfect choice, as they’re valid for 12 months from the date of purchase.

What’s more is if your lady recipient does forget to redeem the voucher. It can be extended for a further 12 months at a very small fee.

Deciding on which gift to choose

We don’t offer pamper days at Diggerland sadly, although we suppose a mud bath would be super enjoyable!

What we offer is fun! Yes let your hair down, race a digger fun!

Dumper Racing is extremely unique. If your special lady loves out of the ordinary, then you need to treat her to a Dumper Racing Gift Voucher. Racing in a Dumper provides sheer excitement. Battle against other racers and the clock to be crowed the winner! It’s fast. As well as intense. It’s let your hair down, roar like a lion, beat your chest like a gorilla, wild excitement.

Dumper-Racing
Monster Digger Experience Days

Unique Gift Ideas For Him

On November 13th, 2019, Diggerland attended the glitzy Family Traveller Awards. The amazing evening event was held at the London Ice Rink venue in South Kensington. It was a cold November evening, but this didn’t dampen anyone’s moods. As the beautiful Christmas lights twinkled, everyone knew something magical would happen.

The night saw 50 of the top travel experience providers crowned winners. Hosted by renowned singer songwriter, Sophie Ellis-Bextor, the whole evening was full of excitement!

In a very new approach to the awards, Family Traveller moved away from the standard set award groups.

This was to make them more meaningful and relevant to how British families are travelling. It’s also a way to adapt to the emerging and changing travel trends. The move gave Family Traveller readers the freedom to nominate the most unique and family friendly travel brands. Which were then grouped into ten clear and well-defined themes.

Over 110,000 votes were cast by Family Traveller readers! All in order to find the 50 Excellence Award Winners. Can you believe this was double the number of votes cast for the 2018 awards!
