Diggerland allows children to operate construction equipment such as any other theme park allows them to ride on thrill rides and rollercoasters.

Located in West Berlin, New Jersey, children are excited about this kind of theme park. Miniature toy construction machines aren’t enough when they can play with the real thing. The machines are created as realistic as possible but aren’t dangerous to the children. They are fitted to be operated by tinier people.
