Diggerland USA, the New Jersey-based theme park known for letting children and parents operate real heavy machinery is now offering supersized heavy equipment for adults. The newest, adult-sized addition to park, Diggerland XL, opens April 2nd and will provide guests who are eighteen years and older the opportunity to have unrestricted fun on giant pieces of construction equipment.

“Since we opened in 2014, we've received hundreds of inquiries asking if our construction theme park is suitable for adults,” said Ilya Girlya, co-owner of Diggerland USA. “We have plenty of adults visit without kids and they have a great time so wanted to take that one step further with Diggerland XL.”

The Diggerland XL experience allows visitors to select from a combination of three different machines, a full-sized wheel loader, excavator or bulldozer in either a 90 minute package or 3-hour package. Both packages include thirty minutes of one-on-one instruction from a heavy machinery foreman prior to playing on the machines.

“Diggerland XL is for people who want to really experience the big pieces of equipment and see what they can do,” said Yan Girlya, co-owner of Diggerland USA. “If you've seen these massive machines in action, they're really impressive. This is unrestricted, full size equipment!”

Guests operating the machines will get the chance to do more than just move dirt and mimic the activities on a construction site, they will also get to play some heavy machinery games. From excavator basketball to the water wheel loader challenge, Diggerland XL combines the experience of operating real construction equipment with unique, hands-on fun for adults who would otherwise never have this opportunity.

Reservations for Diggerland XL can be made online for any time the theme park is open to the public. Right now, Diggerland USA is open every weekend and will be open daily starting June 13th.
