  • Well laid out fun park based on and incorporating various earth moving equipment. Friendly staff, unique activities, nice selection of hot and cold food in the cafe. My 7 year old son thoroughly enjoyed driving the full sized front end loader. The rides are free except for the bumper cars and indoor go carts which are extra.
  • Captivating and well run that caters for all ages. The food is cheap but a bit bland, I missed the breakfast so that could be the one to go for. You only have a limited time on the diggers, even late on when there are no queues, but you can just ask to go back on, didn't see the point in that, they should just leave you in your 'digging zone'
  • Awesome place, five year old son (and mummy and daddy) all loved it. Loads to do, loads of fun, totally worth a visit Much cheaper by comparison than some of the big theme parks but just as good a day out
  • Not massive but we spent a good 4 hours there and all had fun. Definitely worth a visit. All but one member of staff was super polite and cheery.
  • Brilliant day out value for money. Not too crowded. But need to be a metre tall at least.
