A Day at Diggerland – The Ultimate Adventure Park Experience

Mumbler Discount – Enjoy 20% off standard pay on the day admission

Diggerland is the UK’s most unique attraction where children and adults have the chance to ride, drive and operate REAL full size construction machinery, under the guidance of fully trained staff – no driving licence required!

With 4 sites across the UK located in Kent, Devon, Durham and Yorkshire you’re never too far away from digging to your heart’s content.

Diggerland is the perfect place to take your kids for an action packed family day out. Experience the variety of rides and drives on offer – whether it’s enjoying the view on Skyshuttle, hanging tight on Spindizzy, or digging dirt with a 6 ton digger, there is something for all ages!

Admission to Diggerland includes all day access to as many rides and drives as you dare. Admission charges start for anyone 90 cm’s and taller, but visitors should be aware that height restrictions apply. Minimal charges apply for the coin-operated rides. Little visitors under 90cm’s are limited on the amount of mechanical activities they can go on, even accompanied by an adult.

There are play areas, sandpits, bouncy castles and much more where the younger guests can let off steam whilst parents can relax and just watch the fun.  The food facilities provide for all your meal and drink requirements, or you can take along your own lunch and take a seat at our outdoor picnic tables.

All you have to do is download the 20% off Diggerland voucher (click here) and present it on arrival at the Diggerland Yorkshire Park – WF10 5NW.

Poultons Park and Peppa Pig World

Doncaster Mumbler visited in August 2016 and it was great. Unfortunately as it was the summer holidays the Peppa Pig bit was rammed. Having said, that there were bits within the Peppa Pig world that didn’t have massive queues (the water jet play park – we spent a lot of time here, the little houses where you can just see the figures and get your photo taken).

The rest of Paultons park was much less busy and it was fantastic. The vast majority of the rides are for kids- only one or two have height limits.

We were only there for a day whilst holidaying in Norfolk and we all enjoyed it.

Top tips- Take swim stuff and towels for the water jets bit (big one inside the main park, smaller one inside Peppa Pig world)


Sundown Adventureland
