Have you ever wanted to drive a real, full-size JCB 3CX, Backhoe Loader?

Ever since they first came out, it seems that almost every little lad and tomboy have at some time or another wanted to get to grips with the now near legendary, JCB Backhoe Loader. Well now they (or you) can!

Accompanied by one of our specially trained, Diggerland marshals, up to four people can enjoy a trip around the course, with one of them actually driving the machine – subject to height restrictions.

Who knows… maybe the experience will inspire a few of today’s kids to become tomorrow’s digger and dumper drivers!

Please note the JCB 3CX ride is a ride only attraction. No visitor is therefore able to drive these machines due to the current Covid-19 situation.

This is ride only due to Covid. Visitors can no longer drive themselves, due to the current Covid-19 situation.

The JCB 3CX is suitable for any visitor over the height of 90cm, including adults, OAPs or children. Those between 90cm – 110cm must be accompanied by a suitable adult or OAP. Should visitors not reach the stated height, they unfortunately cannot participate in this activity.
