$5 rides!

We stopped by the shop and browsed then purchased a $5 ride on a monster truck through a course set up on the property. Was fun for the price of admission.

Our teen boys had a great time visiting here. I would suggest not going during off season due to some of the park not running

We stopped here to get an early breakfast on our way from NY to Hatteras. We had no idea that this place even exsisted. Getting out we had all we could do to get 3 kids into the diner to eat before they explored all the great trucks, tree house and petting zoo. We all were impressed!

If your kids are into monster trucks, this is the place for you! They have some on display and some are being worked on in the shop. There is also a ride on a dirt track in the back of one of the trucks (for a nominal fee).

Hwy 158 north 25 minutes from Kitty Hawk . Great for kids of all ages who love Monster trucks. Lots of photo ops with trucks on site and fun gift shop. We will go back when it's fully open to check out the restaurant and ride one of the trucks. Just up the road from Weeping Radish Brewery

We stopped in here on our way to our vacation in Buxton. The store was great to pick up neat memorabilia, postcards, and shirts to send/show to friends. We went on the off-season so they were not offering rides nor did they have any of the outdoor stands set up, but we did take a few pics of some vehicles... More

We enjoyed our visit to Grave Digger on our way to Outerbanks. Nice stop for a break, especially with kids. Small playground, live animals, monster truck rides, grave digger store, and bathroom with diaper changing area.
