Now this is the height of cool. Forget about Ferraris, on this experience you get to race a giant excavator - a vehicle that very few people get the chance to drive. After a safety briefing, climb up behind the controls of an 8.5 ton JCB digger, capable of around 20 mph (although when you're in the cab it'll feel a lot quicker). There's hands-on training and at least two race heats over a specially-designed course, including some challenges to complete along the way, with the fastest drivers going through to the grand final. After the racing event has finished, feel free to enjoy the rides and drives in the park - everything is included.

In a Nutshell
  • Master an 8.5 ton JCB
  • Race others to the finish with hands-on training
  • At least two heats, then a final
  • It isnt over yet, you can enjoy all the rides in Diggerland after the racing
