Drop everything and get on a plane to New Jersey immediately! Sound random? No so random when we tell you that West Berlin, New Jersey just happens to be the home of Diggerland, which for big and small lovers of heavy machinery, is the most magical place on earth.
Diggerland is a digger-themed fun park for kids and adults. If your kids have ever peered through the fence gazing longingly at the construction site down the street, Diggerland just might be their happy place.
There are mini excavators, dump trucks, steamrollers, and every single one is a real, full-sized piece of machinery. Kids can sit on their parent’s lap to do what kids do best – dig gigantic holes – or they can operate the machinery themselves if they’re big enough.
Diggerland has other attractions too. There’s one of the world’s tallest ropes courses to climb, military trucks to take off-road, a rock wall to climb and heavy machinery stunt shows to watch.
Diggerland’s operating hours change from month to month, so check the website before planning a visit. Tickets are US$24.95 online for those under 106cm tall, and US$29.95 for the big kids.
