I decided to take my son to Diggerland Amusement park. Little Man loves amusement parks and I thought this might be right up his alley. Not sure if they have this type of park in the states but it is entirely devoted to construction vehicles that the children can ride and operate safely and independently.
|This was the first weekend that the park was opened!|
|Spin Dizzy ride that Little Man loved and must of ridden half a dozen times or more|
|Mud track to practice driving a bob cat again no rails or anything, the kids really did have to drive these things luckily |
the speed for the vehicles was only about 5 mph or less.
|Driving a front end loader with a little guidance...again no rails, I was amazed at how much the kids really got to do on their own|
|Not sure what this is called but again Little Man is in control of the machine|
|Lots of games to play--Little Man broke the record for knocking down these skittles, while I struggled and eventually time ran out:( Little Man loved that he could do this better than me and faster too:)|
|Digging in a full size Digger. This was the longest line in the park, and there were more Dads in this line than any other.|
|Little Man loved working this machine, and I could tell so did many of the Dads who tried it:)! My husband would have loved this park.|
|Every ride had a information board to explain the uses of the equipment, cost and weight, Little Man loved reading them|
|Seeing the grounds from the top of the 50 foot sky shuttle|
|Seeing the show on what some of the equipment can do -- kids were not allowed to do this|
|Once little Man drove a adult size car this one just didn't cut it for him:)|
|Meeting the cast of the show at Digger land|
|Resting in the hotel after a long day of playing hard|
This is a great park if you have a child who loves all things construction!!!
What a great park for younger kids, again I was amazed how much they let the kids do on their own. While there were always staff to support the kids who had trouble it was awesome to get to really drive and operate these construction vehicles. What a amazing day for a little boy...and his Mom:)
