*Ad-press trip – We were gifted tickets for Diggerland Devon in exchange for this post. All thoughts and opinions are my own
Last week we drove up to Diggerland Devon to see what fun we could have there. L has been fascinated with Digger’s, excavators and dumper trucks for a while, so I knew this would be the ideal place for her to explore and burn off some energy. Diggerland Devon opens at 10 am so we had plenty of time to drive up from Cornwall to get there when it opened.
There is lots of info on their website, so the day before we checked out what we could do there and the facilities. I like to plan ahead so we can make the most of our day.
We were one of the first people to arrive at Diggerland. The staff were lovely and very helpful.
What is there to do at Diggerland Devon?
There are lots of rides and drives at Diggerland Devon. You can see here for a full list of rides and drives.
Here are a few of the ones we saw and enjoyed.
- Mini Landrovers
- Spindizzy (we were not quite brave enough for this one!)
- JCB 3CX
- Ground shuttle
- Giant Diggers
- Dumper trucks
- Dirt Diggers
- Diggerland train
Diggerland is the ultimate adventure UK theme park experience
The Experience and What We Think
It’s fun for all ages (subject to height restrictions, L just made the height for most of the rides), Diggerland has 20 different rides and drives and an array of additional activities. The girls particularly love the Little Tikes area, with the cars, playhouses and water table.
“You can get to grips with real JCBs and 180/360 excavators, take a head-reeling turn or two on the Spindizzy, rise to lofty heights and enjoy the views on the Skyshuttle, enjoy an off-road ride on the Groundshuttle, or have a go on the Dodgems and Go-Karts!”
There are indoor and outdoor play areas, sandpits (with a load of toy Diggers, dumper trucks, spades, and buckets), and coin-operated rides. Diggerland Devon had a lovely gift shop where we bought a yellow hard helmet for L (so she can be Bob the Builder!) and a soft Digger toy for little Dottie.
The weather was beautiful, very hot at times so we had to keep popping inside to get out of the heat. Inside there are lots of things to do. Including playhouses. a bouncy castle, soft play ball pit. One for older children and one smaller area for 1-3-year-olds. Lots of seating around where you can have a coffee and snack or ice cream while the kids play.
At Diggerland Devon there are picnic tables located on the grounds to bring your own picnic. I particularly liked where they were placed so little Dottie and I could sit down for a snack while we watched Mr B and L on the rides.
Diggerland Devon has lots to offer for all the family, we certainly enjoyed our family day out there.
