Diggerland USA Review
West Berlin, New Jersey
Tips for visiting Diggerland USA:
- There is very little shade so its best to go when its not a heat wave. However if you f ind yourself here during one they have a large building next to the food counter shack that looks like a huge garage that is full of picnic tables and air-conditioning.
- head to the diggers first they are the most popular
- Screaming eagle is worth the additional price but if you aren’t quite sure you can purchase tickets for the same price inside the park.
Diggerland USA is a construction themed amusement park where kids get to drive and ride in all sort of construction vehicles on pavement and dirt, as well as a few rides. The favorite being the diggers so I recommend visiting those first. There’s also a construction building high ropes course. Olivia was 5 yrs old and Mikey 6.5 and were a bit afraid of heights so we only made it to the second level using the steps.
We visited Diggerland on the hottest day of the summer in the northeast. We were thankful for the large warehouse that was air conditioned. It looked like a garage themed building, but we had no idea what it was used for. Someone mentioned its air conditioned and we went inside to find tons of picnic tables. As we were leaving workers were out putting letters on the windows that read Air conditioned Inside. I thought it was great they put something up. It was hot and with the machines it was hotter. I recommend not going in July or August or even end of June and going at a cooler time, but we survived, and the kids didn’t mind. We had some frozen water bottles in the car we brought in.
We purchased lunch at Diggerland. It was basic amusement park food and not great. I brought a quinoa cup for myself just in case and was glad I did as the options really weren’t appealing to me. Mikey ordered pizza, Olivia chicken tenders and husband got a steak sandwich.
