Dig, dump and drive at Diggerland Kent
. It’s the supersize adventure
for every kid who’s simply mad for machinery, with plenty to interest the rest of the family. If you are looking to fill your weekends or school holidays with buckets of fun, then Diggerland Kent is the
place to visit!
Think Giant diggers, dumper trucks, dirt diggers, bumper cars and all the epic thrills you'd expect to find in an award-winning family-friendly theme park
Things to do
Jump in the driving seat of actual diggers, dumpers and other full-sized construction machinery! There are a whopping 20 different rides including a mini digger searching for buried treasure, making it the ideal theme park for the kids to thoroughly enjoy. For super speed and size, get hoisted on high by the Spindizzy, or take on the stomach-churning, Groundshuttle.
From atop your enormous, 50 ft. perch in the Skyshuttle, take in spectacular views across the River Medway of Rochester castle. Then, once you’ve got your feet firmly back on the ground, let loose on dodgems, go-karts and a soft play.
Whoop-whoop, that's the sound of the police! Get behind the wheel of a Mitsubishi Pajero and go for a joy ride around a special 400-metre course in one of the Diggerland Police 4WD SUVs. This activity is perfect for kids under 17's who are over 150cm tall.
With all of these great attractions and more, Diggerland Kent is a great adventure family day out for everyone to enjoy! Whether it's during the summer holidays, half-term or just a weekend activity!
