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.

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.”

The kids will LOVE getting into a spin on these!!! The awesome all-electric Crazy Carts are the latest crazy craze to arrive at Diggerland!
The world’s leading ride-on brand Razor, the Crazy Carts were introduced as a new attraction at Diggerland Kent in time for the Easter holidays. Currently rolled out to the flagship Kent park, this increasingly popular attraction will be at all four Diggerland UK based parks within the next two weeks, so keep your eyes peeled!
Kids over 140cm in height and under the age of 17 can spin around and around in either direction, doing “doughnuts”, and slide, drive and drift at speeds up to 20kph.
The uniquely, digger-themed, Diggerland Adventure Parks now offer more than eighteen different and assorted attractions, drives and rides to exhilarate and thrill all the family, subject to some height and age restrictions.
Diggerland visitors to the Kent, Devon, Durham and Yorkshire parks can spend all day getting to grips with real JCBs and excavators, taking headreeling turns on Spindizzy, rising to lofty heights and taking in the views 50 feet up on the Skyshuttle, enjoying a bone-rattling ride on the off-road Groundshuttle, or having a merry go round on the JCB Dig-A-Round.
