ellaslist Discovers Diggerland Amusement Park

Real dump trucks, excavators, steamrollers, backhoes… not typically what you’d ever allow your children to stand near, let alone operate! Welcome to Diggerland USA, the only construction-themed amusement park in North America, and the stuff of little builders and future construction workers dreams!

Heavy construction equipment has been modified for children’s use in this Jersey attraction, where kids can dig huge holes, watch stunt shows, climb rock walls and tall rope courses…and even take military trucks off road for a little spin.

We can smells parents’ (especially dads) jealousy- but don’t fret! There’s an ‘XL’ section for adults to have a go too. It’s on our list for our next trip to the US…
