Diggerland

The construction industry's newest recruit fulfilled his dream of running heavy equipment for his 98th birthday. New Jersey resident and World War II veteran Bill Gunn donned a construction hat and vest at Diggerland in West Berlin, N.J., on April 19, as he and his friend, 92-year-old Bill Bueheller, got to work, CBS Philly reported.

America's only construction theme park, where children and their families drive and operate real construction machinery, is going into its fifth season and revealing the last two of five new rides shortly before opening day of the 2018 season. The Rugged Riders and Farm Tractors, both made by Kubota Tractor Corporation, will add two attractions to Diggerland's fleet of more than 25 rides that guests can drive, ride and operate themselves.

For the average person, taking a joy ride up in an aerial scissor lift, traditionally used in building maintenance, warehousing, and construction, might just be a fantasy. Leave it to Diggerland USA to make dreams come true with its release of the third out of five new attractions being added for its upcoming 2018 season.

America's only construction theme park, where children and their families drive and operate real construction machinery, is going into its fifth season and publicly revealing the second of five new rides at the Philadelphia Auto Show. Last November, the park released details of a multi-million dollar expansion and the addition of a 700-foot zip line.

On Nov. 13, Diggerland broke ground on a multi-million dollar, 7+ acre expansion, the largest capital improvement the construction-themed amusement park has seen since opening their doors in the summer of 2014. Construction is currently under way and will continue through the off-season to avoid interference with normal park operations.

Diggerland USA has partnered with the SAMBULANCE Program, a 501 c(3) non-profit tasked with fostering special needs safety education. The entities will co-host Dig, Dine and Drive, an annual fun-filled evening set to take place on Friday, June 9th from 6:00 to 10:00 PM.

Every autumn, Diggerland USA kicks off the changing of seasons with Diggerfest, a fall extravaganza for the family filled with pumpkins, corn mazes and of course, heavy machinery. When the sun goes down this month, the facility will transform into a mystifying Halloween adventure, just spooky enough for the little ones to enjoy.
