Diggerland USA in West Berlin, New Jersey Highlights

Diggerland USA is the only construction theme park in the U.S., which means you know you’re going to be in for a ton of one-of-a-kind experiences you can’t do anywhere else. For little ones, there is so much to take in—from the mini-diggers where they can dig for treasures to the skid steers and tractors they get to steer themselves—it’s all totally hands-on and super fun. Our kids loved taking the dumper trucks around the track and hopping on the battle trucks for a little off-road adventure. The Dig-A-Round was a huge favorite since what kid wouldn’t love a merry-go-round where you ride in the scoop of an excavator?

For the bigger kids (and adults), there are rides that up the thrill factor. Head up into the Sky Shuttle- a telehandler that pushes you 50 feet into the air, or conquer that adrenaline rush on the Spin Dizzy- which lifts and spins you as you sit in an excavator bucket and hold on. For a bird’s eye view of the whole park, the Soaring Eagle zip line takes you on a 700-foot ride that shows you all of Diggerland USA (and then some). And we can’t forget Diggerland XL- which is a chance for adults to operate the full power of heavy machinery– excavators, loaders, and dozers, with guided instruction from a professional.

Then, there are the little touches throughout the park that really add to the family fun. From a ropes course and bright, fun playground to air cannons that launch lemons to an arcade and other on-theme games, there are surprises at every turn to wow your whole crew.

Diggerland USA – What To Know Before You Go

One of the best things about Diggerland USA is that there is truly something for every age. From the toddler set to the grown-ups, everyone in our group had a blast and found rides and attractions inside the park catering to their age group. This makes it an especially great outing with multiple kids or families of different ages.

Parking is free (another win), and there are several different food options within the park. However, guests can’t bring in outside food or beverages. Day passes are $44.95, and most rides are included with the cost of admission, except the Diggerland XL experiences and The Soaring Eagle Zip Line, which each have additional charges.

In the summer, Diggerland USA’s 2-acre water park, The Water Main, is also open. Kids will go love jumping around the construction-themed splash pads, water slides, aqua ball, and more, and it’s all included in general admission. There are lockers to stash your stuff while you enjoy a splash, and you can even rent a personal cabana for the day.
