Days out for Adults – What is there to do at Diggerland?

So you may have heard about Diggerland, the UK’s only construction themed attraction. However, you may not know that if you’re looking for days out for adults then it will be perfect. Diggerland isn’t just for children!

Find out more about our Adult Experience Days, Corporate Events, and even a family day out at Diggerland. We have so much to offer the whole family!


We completely understand that sometimes days out for adults, and adults only are needed. So why not add Diggerland to your bucket list (see what we did there). You’re in for a treat because we have a lot to offer, to suit every adult in need of a fantastic day out.


Are you digger mad, but really want to get to grips with some large construction machinery? We have a few options for you to choose from:

Monster Digger Experience

For just £186.99 per person, anyone over the age of 17 can participate in an exhilarating 90 minute experience. Climb aboard, and step into the cab of a Komatsu PC210, and enjoy learning how to control a 22 ton digger!

Any adults looking to take on this challenge will be given a one-to-one experience with a skilled instructor, and briefed on how to use this type of machine. Our instructor will also be on hand throughout your whole experience should you need any help.  

This specific experience is available at our UK parks in Kent, Devon, Durham and Yorkshire and can be booked for any day during our season. We recommend booking the experience for a day we are open to the public. This will allow you to make use of all of the different rides and drives too. Whether you’re a digger fanatic or not, you’ll be crazy to miss out on this once in a lifetime experience. Find out more and buy a gift voucher today!

Dumper Racing

Dumper Racing has got to be one of our most popular days out for adults. For only £49.95pp, competitors can race against each other for the top position, and also bragging rights!

Race against the clock in this timed event, using only a JCB skidsteer and plenty of skill. Who will come out on top?

Our Dumper Racing events can be booked at Kent and Yorkshire, and they are normally held on selected Saturday afternoons/evenings, set by us. The events will be running from March to September, with varying start times, so it’s always best to book your space in advance!

As this event is run when the main park is closed, spectators will be able to come and watch free of charge. So make sure you have your friends and family at your side as you attempt to receive the ultimate Diggerland certificate.

Individual and Group JCB Experience

If you’ve always wanted to drive around in your very own JCB, then we can make your dreams come true. Well just 90 minutes anyway!

Join us at our Kent or Yorkshire park, and use the front bucket and backhoe to dig to your heart’s content. You’ll be an expert operator in no time. Especially with the help and guidance of our skilled instructors. Participants will have the choice of learning how to operate a backhoe loader as an individual or as part of a group. The best part is you, and one other individual will also get full access to the park’s attractions too.

To buy an Individual JCB Experience it will cost £164.99 per person. Alternatively, the Group JCB Experience is £87.99 per person. 

All of our vouchers are valid for 12 months, however please note that we are a seasonal attraction, and some of our events are only run on specific dates during the seasonal months. Always check our opening dates and get in touch with our bookings team if you have any questions.
