Really the worst Park Ive ever been to, very dilapidated and dirty, even the toilets were smelly. The wood everywhere is literally rotting, don't take your kid if asthmatic, i didn't realise it was there before he went up, but the decay and thick mould in the wood play area brought on my sons and he had an attack. £15 each with an the online discount including the young ones, who we discovered can't go on any of the free rides, the paid rides, half don't work, have to keep hunting down unhelpful staff to retrieve money.

Not maintained, lots of rides don't work or are faulty,My kid hurt themselves, staff unhelpful and rude.Very expensive for a Park only open from 10-5 and where you have to pay for rides that don't work.The Restaurant was closed with a sign saying 'sorry closed defo no electric', weeds everywhere.Dont bother.

Hello chaps! (......and chapettes of course!) I recently visited Diggerland in Durham so I have taken up the challenge to review it myself, as a lover of diggers and all things big and machine-y. The Experience: For my birthday last July my mother treated me to a day at Diggerland, Durham. I know, I know I'm technically too old for that sort of thing, but I am such a digger enthusiast..... Sometimes you just have to swallow your pride and enjoy things! The website does state "It's not just for kids-n adults can have the time of their life too!" and I have to agree, I had a brilliant day. My mother also had lots ... Read the complete review

Travelled to Diggerland last weekend, 12th June, despite the pounding rain to keep a promise I made to my niece(9) and nephew(7) and have to say it was well worth it! From the moment we arrived staff were friendly and helpful and even in the not so great weather seemed to be in high spirits. Lots to do. My niece couldn't believe she could drive a 4 x 4 all on her own, and I'm pretty sure my nephew has binned off the idea if being a dinosaur hunter when he grows up- He wants to drive diggers! I myself had a splendid time having a go in all the machines and was pleasantly surprised that there was so much I could do even as a grown up! I loved the sky shuttle ... Read the complete review

I took my two boys (6 & 8) to the Devon Digger land yesterday (Saturday 28th May 2011) and had a great time. We were there from 12-4pm and could have stayed longer, 'driving' and 'controlling' several different sized diggers, mini dumper trucks and a big JCB. Even my 6 year old was able to control much of the machinery on his own, which when you consider how much these rigs cost to buy and maintain and the usual OTT safety margins of the average amusement park, made the admission fee of £17pp (£15pp if you book online) justifiable IMO. Bad Points: - Some older static stuff (slides, zip lines etc) could use a coat of paint ... Read the complete review
