Construction Machinery at NJ\'s Diggerland

Construction Machinery at NJ's Diggerland

Rigging and demolition is a serious business. Crane and heavy equipment operators, like those here at R. Baker & Son, are highly-trained, experienced specialists tasked with using powerful machines to perform challenging and potentially dangerous feats. It is a serious job, indeed, but even the most consummate rigging and demolition professionals still feel a certain thrill when piloting their massive machinery. They are living out their childhood fantasy.

Nowadays, kids don’t have to wait until adulthood to experience their construction and demolition dreams. At Diggerland USA, a hands-on construction themed adventure park located in West Berlin, New Jersey, kids and adults alike can drive, ride, and operate actual heavy machinery. Though there are no cranes for rigging enthusiasts, visitors can drive backhoes, skid steers, and steam rollers, take an off-road drive in an ARGO amphibious UTV, or dig a hole with an excavator. Mini-excavator attractions challenge riders to snatch rubber ducks from a pond, dig up hidden treasures, and knock over bowling pins. Diggerland has even converted heavy equipment into amusement rides, some meandering and gently turning in circles, others spinning and soaring for the less faint-of-heart. Diggerland also features a rock wall, a ropes course, a stunt show, an arcade, and a padded playground for tykes.

For the 18-and-over crowd, Diggerland recently unveiled Diggerland XL, where adults can operate unrestricted, full-size equipment with 1-on-1 instruction. Grownups can play a giant game of Jenga with a 12-ton wheel loader, dig holes and play basketball with a 26-ton excavator, and navigate an obstacle course that requires moving tires and grading earth with an 18-ton dozer.

Diggerland is situated in southwest New Jersey in West Berlin, a twenty minute drive from Philadelphia and about an hour and a half from New York. An R. Baker & Son demolition team member and his wife visited Diggerland recently with their three children and described their experience as “an absolute blast” that was well worth the trip.  www.diggerlandusa.com
