Have you ever heard of Diggerland? Tucked away from West Berlin, NJ (Camden County), this is the ultimate playground for fans of trucks, construction equipment and thrills.

From Diggerland USA opened in 2014, they have regularly added new attractions and special events to increase offerings and attendance. In 2020, they launched The Water Main, a water park connected to their main theme park with slides, pools, wading pools and sunbathing areas.

Diggerland has just announced via social media and email another major expansion for the summer of 2022: a wave pool.

The new wave pool will feature “4 foot high waves in various designs” as well as a zero depth entry. It will be flanked by additional “misting stations and water features” and new seating areas.

It’s a great addition to Diggerland Park, cementing their position as a full-fledged, multi-day summer destination. The new wave pool is built on land previously used by the park for its special seasonal events such as Family Camp Out, Diggerfest and Winterfest.

The addition of the water park will also include a “crossing activity pool” obstacle course, more cabanas and the expansion of the poolside food service.

The aerial rendering displayed by the park also represents a new water slide tower next to the new wave pool. Park officials said it was a future expansion targeted for an opening in 2023.

The last day for the Diggerland and Winterfest rides for the 2021 season is Sunday, November 28.

Their Holi’DIG Drive-Thru Light Snow runs almost every day until Sunday January 2nd.

There has not yet been an announcement regarding the 2022 opening dates for the theme park side of Diggerland USA. The water park and the new wave pool attraction are scheduled to open for the season on May 21, 2022.
