With three children currently aged 3-8 we're always on the look out for fun days out to entertain the whole family, we thought it might be helpful to share our adventures with you too. Our most recently adventure;
Diggerland Yorkshire: a birthday treat for Freddie Beau!
Freddie has been obsessed with diggers since he was teenie, he spends most mornings 'digger spotting' on the nursery commute.. so it was a no brainer to take him as a birthday treat and it did not disappoint! About Diggerland Diggerland is exactly what it says on the tin; a digger themed 'theme park' where children and adults can ride, drive and operate REAL diggers, dumpers and other full-size construction machinery. You can also race in go-karts, explore a mini safari, enjoy a train ride and burn any remaining energy in the soft play area they have.
On face value the tickets seemed a little pricey but if like us, you take your own picnic (and there's plenty of picnic benches to sit) then almost everything inside is included in the price (bar a handful of £1 ride-on machines). It's also worth mentioning it was considerably cheaper to book online than on the door.. (we searched high and low for a discount code and had no luck - we're coupon Queen's at heart). We arrived shortly after 10am and stayed in the park until 3pm and finished up the last hour in the soft play. So, if you enjoy it to it's fullest, you can make a real day of it!~ Hints & Tips
Book online, take a picnic and due to height restrictions make sure your littles are at least 80cm to enjoy the rides with a parent, 100cm tall for them to experience a few more independently and 140cm for a 'no limits' experience. Harper was less than 140cm but able to operate a lot of the rides/machines on her own. A lot of the rides for the 80/100cm littles are experienced with a 'grown up' so it's not ideal if you're an adult on your own taking multiple toddlers.
