Diggerland Yorkshire

Details

Diggerland with its 18 different rides and drives and an array of additional activities is the ideal theme park for small to large groups looking for something exciting and truly unique. 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 a bone-rattling off-road ride on the Groundshuttle, or have a go on the Dodgems and Go-Karts!

There are indoor and outdoor play areas, sandpits, coin operated rides and much more where younger visitors can let off steam while their parents can just sit back, relax and watch the fun… or join in!

All parks boast a Diggerland Goodie Store where visitors can mark their day with a memorable souvenir as well as buy gifts, toys and other merchandise, and there are cafeterias that offer a wide selection of hot and cold snacks, meals and beverages. Picnic tables are located in the grounds for those who prefer to bring their own packed lunches.

The Diggerland parks have lots to offer for all the family. The parks are aimed at children between 4 and 14 years of age, however we have many visitors of all ages enjoying a great day out!

Notes

  • Diggerland’s Disability Information: Disabled visitors to Diggerland pay the same entry rate as anyone else, but each disabled visitor may bring in one carer/helper free of charge. The carer/helper may use the rides and drives if they wish to do so. Please note that this offer is only valid in conjunction with payment for a full price entry ticket or with the purchase of prepaid on-line entry tickets. It is not valid in conjunction with any special voucher offers, e.g. 2 for 1 or 3 for 2 special discount vouchers or Tesco Clubcard Diggerland Tokens. Each Diggerland site has a dedicated parking area for cars with disabled parking permits. Each Diggerland location has at least one toilet adapted to suit the requirements of wheelchair users or disability needs. The pathways inside Diggerland are either concrete or tarmac or gravelled so wheelchair and mobility buggy access should be adequate. Please note that we do not have wheelchairs or mobility buggies available to borrow or hire at Diggerland. Disabled visitors are welcome to use as many of the rides and drives as they would like during the day. As we use real construction machines as the basis for the activities in Diggerland, please be aware that the machines may not be suitable or provide easy access for the disabled. Our marshals will supervise visitors where they can, but we must advise you that our staff are not able to lift or assist disabled visitors. Most of the diggers which the public can operate in Diggerland use hand operated controls only. The controls are power-assisted and do not require great strength to operate them. Diggerland does not operate any “fast track” or preferential queuing service for disabled visitors. Disabled Guests are entitled to a free carer ticket. Please book a Standard/OAP ticket as appropriate and bring proof of entitlement to Diggerland Admissions in order for us to issue the free carer ticket. Such proof includes a blue/orange badge, Attendance Allowance book, Disability Living Allowance (DLA) letter, Attendance Allowance (AA) letter, statement of Special Educational Needs from LEA or NHS. - See more at: http://www.diggerland.com/useful-info/disability/#sthash.v534Hkdt.dpuf
