If you've picked enough apples and pumpkins to fill a barn but still want to be active outside with the fam you'll want to plan a day trip to Diggerland in West Berlin, NJ for their Diggerfest and Winterfest soon.
Diggerland is the only construction themed adventure park in North America where visitors can ride and operate real, full-sized construction equipment that has been modified to make it safe for kids. Kids can dig holes with excavators or drive or operate backhoes, skid steers and dump trucks all with little to no instruction.
Super fun (and sneakily educational) on a regular day, Diggerland is even better in the fall during Diggerfest. In addition to the 25 regular attractions, Diggerland celebrates the season with a corn maze and hay rides. For an additional fee, you can also indulge your inner lumberjack with a round of ax throwing. And remember the classic Modern Family Punkin Chunkin episode? This is your chance to channel the Dunpheys with a pumpkin launch of your own. All you have to do is purchase your pumpkin then enjoy watching it fly!
Then Diggerland swings into Winterfest with a themed holiday hay ride, a Holiday Parade, bonfires, ornament decorating and food to fit the season. Winterfest will kick off on Saturday, November 17th with Play-Doh weekend. Kids (and the young at heart) can take a break from operating machinery and riding rides to enjoy an exclusive Play-Doh product launch, product displays, demonstrations and play area.
