A Great Day out
It’s very difficult to find an attraction (in Kent) that has everything to take the family out for the day.
As a stressed out grandparent I cannot praise the staff enough for their help and assistance.
This is an attraction that has certain rides that we found our disabled granddaughter could actually go on and enjoy. Easy to find easy to park.
Date of experience: April 2019
We visited on the last day of the Easter School Holidays with my ten year old son. It was his first visit , and our first visit for 7 years all so.
He absolutely loved it! He wore a big grin all day as he tried most of the rides and experiences. The staff were very friendly, especially in the ‘Dig Inn’ cafe where we enjoyed a lovely meal from their wide menu and later a massive ice cream and hot chocolate.
It seems expensive at first but when you factor in you can ride as often as you like and experience vehicles such as driving dumper trucks, diggers, go carts etc it is well worth it!
It was worth every penny seeing my son so happy. Big kids enjoyed themselves as well ! (Me!). We will definitely return, recommended!

As good as i hoped!
I visited on Sunday with a 10 and 13 yr old and they loved it!
Got there at opening time and it took the boys about 3 hours to have one go on everything, then a break to warm up with hot chocolates in a nice cafe/barn, then back out to re-try their favourites.
Both loved the fact that they could drive or control everything!! The 4×4 driving and real JCB driving were favourites along with spindizzy.
Park seems small compared to theme parks, but don’t be fooled, there is LOADS to do! Most staff were young, but really friendly and professional.
If it had been warmer we would have stayed even longer. Go prepared for it to be diggers and mud and you’ll love it!
