The JCB Skid Steer Loaders are also known as “JCB Robots”, and they have been especially adapted for Diggerland’s visitors to drive around a purpose-designed course. They may not be fast, but they are immense fun to drive!

Kid love them! Visitors have to be over 90cm (36”) to ride with an adult, or over 110cm (43”) to drive one themselves.

(Don’t forget to wave to family & friends as you go by!)
