Tips for first timers visiting Diggerland Theme Park in the UK

It’s nearly time for Diggerland Theme Park in the UK to reopen its doors after the long winter!

Diggerland reopens for a brand new season on Saturday February 15th. Though we look forward to new events and new experiences, some things never change! So here’s a handy guide to all the Diggerland newbies having their first muddy good adventure at the world’s most unique adventure park!

No heels!

Diggerland is all outdoors, and our diggers can get quite muddy, especially in the rain. This is not the place to be dressing up in your Sunday best, so just throw on a baggy jumper and some trainers and give the mirror a day off! But avoid white trainers if you can, or bring an extra pair – trust us!

Bring your own lunch. Or not. We have you covered

Whatever you wish to do we can accommodate. Every park has its own on site cafeteria selling a variety of hot and cold food, but if you would rather bring your picnic that’s ok too! We have outside seating for you to sit and tuck in with the family, so you don’t need to break the bank to enjoy a feast.

But if you do wish to indulge you can come and go as you please – simply get your hand stamped and you can pop out for food and return as many times as you like throughout the day.

Check your diaries!

Diggerland is open every weekend from February to November, and on select weekdays around school holiday periods. Before you visit, check our opening times to avoid a wasted journey! You can also pre-book in advance for specific days and save a few pennies.

Ride Spindizzy BEFORE lunch!

You might think you can handle anything, but for everyone’s sake just trust us on this one!

No need to rush!

Unlike other theme parks, Diggerland prides itself on shorter queuing times. Even when busy you won’t usually be waiting more than 30 mins for the most popular rides. This means in a day you can get around the whole park twice, and take advantage of the unlimited rides without being rushed off your feet!


Diggerland UK Theme Park can be found in Kent, Durham and Yorkshire. The fun-filled theme park is fantastic for family days out, and is specifically aimed at children aged 4 – 14.  Alongside Skyshuttle, the parks boast 19 other attractions, and coin operated rides, perfect for the whole family. Whether you want to get to grips on the dirt diggers, or you’re a thrill seeker desperately wanting to experience the famous UK attraction, Spindizzy, there’s plenty to do!
