World's Strangest Theme Parks

Diggerland, England

Martin Beddall/Alamy

Diggerland, England

With four locations covering 250 acres across England, this construction-themed franchise pairs children with heavy machinery. More than 200,000 hoe enthusiasts large and small visit each year, flocking to rides like the Spindizzy, a converted digger that spins around with riders strapped into the elevated bucket. Dump-truck racers must be at least 17 but need only an “idea of how to drive.”

Best of the Strange: The park has its own backhoe stunt team, the Dancing Diggers, which performs private shows.
