Like many other attractions, the adventure park has been badly affected by the pandemic, and has been unable to open under current government restrictions.

But following the Prime Minister's unveiling of the UK's roadmap out of lockdown, the park has confirmed it will open all four of its branches from Monday, April 12, including Diggerland Yorkshire, which is located in Castleford.

In a post on its website, Diggerland said: "Diggerland are very pleased to be able to announce that all four Diggerland UK theme parks will be reopening on Monday 12 April 2021.

"All outdoor activities will be available but we are sorry that indoor play area will have to remain closed for a further six weeks, as a minimum, due to government restrictions.

"There will also be restrictions on food and beverage. Full Covid-19 compliance will be in place and we will be restricting the number of daily visitors to ensure that everyone can maintain social distancing.

"At the moment visitors can not pre-book tickets for specific days, but our two year discounted open tickets are still available to purchase (but only up to the end of March ’21) online.

"Duggy, Dotty and the Diggerland team look forward to welcoming you back to Diggerland when we reopen."

Diggerland Yorkshire will reopen on Monday, April 12, shortly after the Easter Holidays in Wakefield and the Five Towns.
