Fabulous day out.
Oct 2021 • Family
Love this place!!! Been once before when my children were 4 years younger. Now 11 and 13 I was hoping they would get as much out of it - they actually got more out of it. Once over 1.4m they can ride everything on their own and they absolutely loved it. As did I. We were with family, including a 4 year old and it has something for everyone. There are many rides that both my 13 year old and his 4 year old cousin could ride on together.

We visited outside of English school holidays and there were no queues. Walked on every ride. It's not a huge park but we had no trouble staying all day, even with no queue time.

The staff were so friendly and happy, which makes a huge difference. Whilst they operate covid rules, it was nice to have some normality. Some venues seem to use covid as an excuse to close certain areas, not diggerland. Everything was open, including the driving experiences on the jcb and range rover where a member of staff sits beside you. Well done Diggerland. It was an epic day out. I think we might have to come back again!!!!

Amazing family day out - just go!
Oct 2021 • Friends
Wow, we were blown away with our visit to Diggerland with three boys under 9.

The site was compact and easy to navigate and there were so many machines - kids loved operating the diggers and driving go karts but the highlight for the two eldest was the Spin Dizzy.

The operator, think he was called Aiden?, was great with the kids and didn’t seem to mind too much with the constantly hassle from the two boys for more shots.

All the staff were lovely and greet with the kids - especially the staff showing how to work the diggers - and the site was immaculate.

Cafe and gift shop were really reasonably priced which is unusual and the kids got to spend their pocket money well.

Absolutely fab day and well worth the visit from Scotland - wish it was closer and we could become regulars.

Fantastic family day out .... worth a visit!
Aug 2021 • Family
We have just got home from a fantastic family day at diggerland Durham, two adults and three children under 8. Brilliant day, the staff were amazing from start to finish, they couldn't be more welcoming and child focused. We needed an extra adult so everyone could go on the dodgems so a staff member stood in which the kids thought was great! Simon on the JCB and Josh on the car driving were particularly fab and a hit with the kids. It really does make all the difference to be greeted with nice genuine people.

The facilities were clean and tidy and plenty of hand sanitiser all round the park. Little to no queues and staff were seen regularly cleaning.

Food areas kept clean and tidy and food and drink all relatively low cost.

I would also say items in the gift shop were all reasonably priced which does make a huge difference.

Brilliant day and we will be back again soon!

Great for kids and adults alike
Aug 2021 • Family
I didn't expect Diggerland to be so much fun for an over 60 aunt, other than getting to spend time with my lovely family. The variety of rides was great, so much to do. Queues were short and the staff were brilliant. So many of the attendants at the rides had excellent customer service skills and were fab with the children.

Good value day out for a young family
Aug 2021 • Family
Took a couple of boys (5 and 7) and a grandparent for a school holidays staycation treat on a Saturday. Booked online the day before from the easy to navigate website. We arrived shortly after opening to find the carpark just over half full. No queues to get in and rarely had to wait more than a few minutes throughout the visit. All of the attendants were friendly and maintained their enthusiasm throughout the the day. My own enthusiasm waned towards the end of a fun packed day for the boys but I can't fault the park. A good value day out and I'll probably cave in to demands to return within the year.

Great Day at Diggerland… Staff are AMAZING!
Aug 2021 • Family
I don’t normally write reviews but just got back from Diggerland with my 3 (nearly 4) year old son and we both had a blast! Apart from the near lack of queues and plenty to do I just wanted to say a special thank you to the the staff. They are a real asset and deserve praise. Too many theme parks have the usual disgruntled late teen attendants but these guys and girls were brilliant. Waving to us when we arrived, asking us how we were, asking my son what he’d enjoyed the most, presenting him his certificate in the gift shop and waving goodbye as we left… it’s the little things but it makes it so much more personal and we spent the full day here… rare for our kids!! Thank you and thank you to your great staff! :0)
