Spending October Half Term at Diggerland UK!

School’s out for the October half term and we can sense the frustration for the parents. Are you struggling to plan fantastic UK days out to keep the kids entertained? Diggerland UK will be the saving grace for all families, plus adults will have plenty of fun too!

So what is there to do at Diggerland UK?


If your children are above the 90cm mark then they’re in for a treat, and we’re not talking about trick or treating! 

For any visitors over this height, they will be able to enjoy the majority of the rides and drives at our 4 UK theme parks. With 20 different construction themed rides and drives available, it will certainly keep you busy for the whole day. So it’s one less day that parents will have to entertain their children for!


Spindizzy, the ride of all rides. Here at Diggerland UK we have the thrillseekers covered with the ultimate construction machinery ride.

With our bespoke digger bucket, our visitors can pick their seat and strap in to seal their fate. Have you ever been spun around in a Komatsu PC210 tracked excavator? Of course you haven’t! Visitors will need to reach the minimum height of 100cm to enjoy this ride, so make sure you measure your child at the ride height gate before entering. Once you enter there’s no turning back!

One thing we will guarantee our visitors is the fantastic view. That’s if you can see straight, once our marshal has spun you round and round… We would recommend checking out our ride in action first, to see if you have the stomach for this attraction!

Dumper Trucks

Our Terex 1 tonne dumpers are the perfect size for all of our visitors to use and enjoy. 

With health and safety in mind for our guests, we have adapted the machines to reduce the travel speed, as they travel round our specially designed track. Parents can rest easy knowing that the machines are perfectly safe for their little ones to use. Plus, they also provide your family with the perfect photo opportunity to snap a picture of you doing your thing. 

Don’t forget, once you’ve driven round the track once, you can always queue up again for another go!

Giant Diggers

The dream for any child is to operate their own digger, and your child can do just that at Diggerland UK. The Giant Diggers are perfect for anyone over the height of 90cm, and children and adults alike can dig, scoop and drop mud to their heart’s content!

All of our machinery is stationary for health and safety purposes, but it certainly doesn’t limit the fun you will have. Children love being construction workers for the day when they clamber into our Komatsu PC55 mini diggers. Where else can you say that your child has been let loose on real life construction machinery?  


Why not combine a day out to Diggerland UK, with a trip to the bowling alley? Let’s take it one step further though… Knocking down skittles with a digger attachment. Sounds easy, right? Think again! 

Climb aboard a Komatsu PC14 mini digger and strap yourself in for the challenge of a lifetime. Using our bespoke digger attachments, our visitors will take on the task of knocking down all of the skittles. How good are your digger controls? 

We will let you in on a little secret, sometimes the children are actually better at this task than the adults! It must be something to do with their hand eye coordination and their concentration skills… 

This particular attraction is suitable for anyone over the height of 80cm. Anyone measuring between 80cm – 110cm will need to be accompanied by an adult. Visitors over this height can operate the machine themselves!

We are a family friendly attraction, and therefore we do not partake in any scary Halloween activities. If you’re looking for a quiet, child friendly day out then Diggerland will suit you down to the ground. (See what we did there?!)

Each Diggerland UK park will be decorated with plenty of Halloween themed items. Plus our visitors will also have the chance to take a family photo in our Halloween themed deckchair. Don’t forget to post it on social media for everyone to see! 


As it’s half term we will be open daily from Monday 24th October up until Sunday 30th October. We will be open from 10am until 4pm so if you’re booking tickets you can spend the whole day with us!

Please note that the last day of our 2022 season will be Sunday 30th October, and we will then be closing until mid February next year. If you’re planning on visiting Diggerland UK then ensure you don’t miss out!
