Dumper Truck Racing is the perfect action-packed group experience! Get behind the wheel of a dumper truck and challenge friends, foes, or complete strangers in a series of races. Think you’re good?

Soap Star Has Muddy Good Fun

Last week Diggerland Kent played host to former Emmerdale star Roxanne Pallett, who was launching the new 888casino’s Millionaire Genie game. She was on a date with Troy Stapleton, whose wish was granted by 888.com and ourselves to go digger racing with the actress-turned-model.

Andy Ballantyne, Managing Director of Diggerland, called it “the best photo shoot we’ve ever done”, and even managed to get a little signed picture, which is now carefully stored under lock and key!

Miss Pallett shot to fame as Jo Sugden in the ITV soap Emmerdale, but she only clinched the job by lying on her CV about being a whizz on a motorbike. The show’s bosses wrote the bike into her character’s story and only found out on the first day of filming that she barely knew how to sit on one and had fibbed about her licence. So once she got behind the wheel of our Dumper Trucks we were all on high alert!

But despite falling out of a scoop while trying to bat away a wasp, screaming her lungs out as she crashed a JCB up a hill and almost falling out the window of a 9 tonne JCB as it turned on one side, it was a fun-filled day for all!

Diggerland is the UK’s ultimate adventure park where people of all ages and abilities can ride and drive real full-size diggers. With over 18 different attractions including giant diggers, tractors, Go-Karts, Dumper Trucks, the Skyshuttle, and our world famous Spindizzy, Diggerland promises a great day out for the whole family! And wherever you are, it’s never too far away from your nearest park:

Medway Valley Leisure Park, Strood, Kent, ME2 2NU
Langley Park, County Durham, DH7 9TT
Willowbridge Lane, Castleford, West Yorkshire, WF10 5NW
Verbeer Manor, Cullompton, Devon, EX15 2PE

Car Smash Countdown

Tomorrow, July 27th 2013, will go down in history as the day the skies went dark, when chaos reigned, and when some of the biggest diggers in the land were unleashed on poor unsuspecting vehicles! For tomorrow is The Diggerland Car Smash – brace yourselves!

The Car Smash is a free event where two expert digger drivers compete in a series of crazy car-crunching challenges! It is the most spectacular event in our season, and all day our Marshals have been busily getting ready. But all you need to do is visit any Diggerland park, stand back, and enjoy the show!

So clear your diary and come to Diggerland tomorrow! The Car Smash begins at the following times:

Kent – 12pm

Devon – 1pm

Yorkshire – 1pm

Durham – 1.30pm

The Car Smash is a free event at no extra cost to Diggerland visitors, though standard admission rates do still apply. We look forward to seeing you, and let’s hope the sun keeps shining for the rest of summer!

Summer Is Here!

July & August are always our favourite months at Diggerland – the sun is out, school is finished, and we are OPEN EVERY SINGLE DAY! That’s right, we are here 10am – 5pm, 7 days a week right throughout the Summer holidays, and we have a couple of tricks up our sleeve too!

If you stopped by Diggerland Kent back on June 30th you would have seen the amazing Digger Wars! We put expert digger drivers head to head, or should we say wheel to wheel, as they battled it out to hoards of screaming Digger fans. Our marshalls did their best to keep things under control, but once they got the diggers going there was no stopping them!

On Saturday 27th July at every Diggerland park, you can witness the most smashtacular event of the year – it’s The Big Diggerland Car Smash Challenge! Two digger experts go head to head in a series of grueling, car-crunching challenges, and best of all IT’S AT NO EXTRA COST! So if you’re planning a visit to Diggerland make it July 27th and witness this extraordinary event!

Dress up and Dig for Free!

Calling all bite-sized builders! This Sunday 9th June Diggerland is giving YOU the chance to visit for free. If you’re under 16 and dress up as a builder you can come to any of our four parks and dig to your heart’s content!

But if you think you can just pop on a hard hat and get a freebie you’re mistaken. We want the full works – Hi Vis jacket, boots, hard hat, and tool belt are desirable, as long as you make a proper effort!

So make Duggy proud this weekend and come along to our Dress-Up Day! Diggerland has four parks in Kent, Durham, Devon, and Yorkshire. Builders must be accompanied by one full paying adult, and free entry includes unlimited rides and drives on all diggers, but excludes dodgems, coin-operated rides, merchandise, and food & drink.

Duggy's Mix Tape

This Saturday, millions of people around the country will be rushing back from Diggerland to get ready for another exciting Eurovision Song Contest. To celebrate, we are giving you an exclusive peek at Duggy’s very own mixed tape playlist, filled with all his favourite songs.

So while you’re sitting with the family watching Bonnie Tyler belt out another possible flop for the UK, Duggy will be relaxing in a bubble bath, unwinding from another busy day at Diggerland, and listening to…

The JCB Song – Nizlopi

A classic for any builders, construction workers, and digger lovers. This is Duggy’s favourite song ever, he just keeps it on repeat most days.

Dig A Little Deeper – The Princess and the Frog

This song, from the 2009 Disney animated move, always puts a smile on Duggy’s face. He doesn’t really understand metaphors, but they sing the word dig a lot.

Can We Fix It – Bob the Builder

Bob the Builder is Duggy’s hero. This song inspired him to make Diggerland the most Diggertastic place in the world. But don’t ask him about Mambo No. 5 – that’s a sore point.

Here’s a couple more of Duggy’s favourites:

The Hippopotamus Song (Mud, Mud, Glorious Mud) – Flanders and Swann

Hole in the Ground – Bernard Cribbins
