My kids are somewhat obsessed with Peppa Pig. When they discovered Peppa went to an amusement park - DiggerWorld. They were begging me to go. Well, they didn't understand that it was fictional and based of the UK Diggerland. The good news is that South Jersey has their very own Diggerland right in West Berlin!
Thank you to Diggerland for hosting us!
I have been to Diggerland a few times but it has been a little bit of time since I had been back. This time I went with my four children ages 19, 17,8 and 3. That is a big age span but this theme park delivered because there were activities and rides for all ages. (I should note that my youngest is very tall for his age and is about 41 inches so he was able to do quite a bit - so check the height requirements for your littles!)
The day we went was hot but there was lots of shade when standing in line so that wasn't an issue. There was a pavilion that was enclosed and air conditioned sit down and eat too. The attractions have grown since I was last there. We went for about 3 hours and we did not get to do it all even though the lines were not bad it was just a lot to cover and we should have planned longer at the park. It really takes a full day if you want to do it all!
One of the little kids favorite things to do was the Gold Digger Mining activity! For a small fee (I think it was $6) you got a little bag of dirt and gemstones then you would take it to a screen plate and dump it while shaking the plate to reveal the gems. Included was a little chart of the different rocks you could find. The kids spent a lot of time looking over the chart and figuring out the different rocks and gems. I loved this activity too as it was a great souvenir.

Diggerland is really a wonderful place. The theming is top notch! I loved all the different things to do and how it really did span all ages. My 3 year old was able to do the Barrel Train, Kid Zone Playground and Digger Derby with out assistance. He felt like a big kid. Jace, who is 8 had a blast because he was big enough to drive independently on many of the attractions!
- If your not local, then I suggest planning a whole day.
- There is a pretty decent selection of food you can purchase on location (this is what we did!)
- Wear comfortable clothing and closed shoes (sneakers.)
- Sunscreen is a must! Hats and sunglasses will help with the sun.
My kids can't wait to go back. I think for us as locals, it would be ideal to buy season passes so we would have the ability to go for a few hours and play over the course of the pass season. This is our plan for next year as I think my littles would love to go more often and as homeschoolers we like to do field trips all year and Diggerland is open through the fall and winter. Diggerfest is their annual fall event and it is from September 14th - October 27th.
