WEST BERLIN, NJ -- (Marketwired) -- 06/11/14 -- North America's first-ever construction-themed adventure park will officially open to the public this Saturday, June 14 at 10:00 AM. Diggerland USA covers 14 acres of centrally-located land in Camden County, NJ and offers visitors the opportunity to operate heavy machinery in a safe, family-friendly environment.
Diggerland USA features 23 on-site attractions, most of which are comprised of modified JCB heavy construction equipment. The park is designed to allow children and their parents to safely dig, drive and ride familiar, real-sized construction equipment.
Prior to the grand opening on Saturday, a ribbon cutting ceremony and an exclusive Preview Day will take place Friday, June 13 before the one-of-a-kind park opens to the general public on Saturday.
Exactly six months before the grand opening, plans for the construction theme park were unveiled by the owners of the neighboring indoor and outdoor water park, Sahara Sam's Oasis. Ilya Girlya, CEO and Owner of Sahara Sam's and Diggerland USA, had a vision for Diggerland USA that leveraged themes set forth by the four UK-based Diggerland parks but also incorporated his own touches.
"The opportunity to take the concept of a construction theme park and make it our own was very exciting for us," said Girlya. "On Saturday, I get to see the vision that my family and I had for Diggerland become a reality."
The Girlya family owns and operates SAMBE General Contracting which oversaw the construction for Diggerland USA.
"My family has a very personal connection to the project, just as we did with Sahara Sam's five years ago," Girlya said. "Construction has been in my family for many years so it was a natural fit for us to build a construction theme park."
Diggerland USA will be open from 10:00 AM - 7:00 PM, Sunday - Friday and from 10:00 AM - 8:00 PM on Saturdays through November. Tickets can be purchased online or at the park.
