A Chipotle boom is taking place in the 42Freeway area, with another one proposed for Blackwood-Clementon Road, at the site of the former Denny's Restaurant. The Denny's building would be demolished to make way for a new building, which will have space for a future second retail client.
West Berlin NJ’s Diggerland USA is the country’s only construction themed amusement park… and for next year they are expanding into new directions with the May 2020 opening of The Water Main Aquatic Park featuring two pools, slides and other fun activities!
There is a lot of exciting wet fun packed in to this new 2 acre expansion! From the Diggerland press release:
Guests will be able cool off and swim and splash their way around an expansive 2-acre outdoor aquatic park with two multi-zone pools featuring a slide tower, Wibit-brand challenge course, swim vortex, in-pool basketball area, themed splash park, plus family and leisure swim zones. Surrounding the pools are deck chairs and lawn areas for relaxation and sunbathing, walk‑up food and beverage service and private cabana rentals.
They are targeting to open The Water Main on Memorial Weekend 2020… but remember the “original” Diggerland is still open through the rest of the year on weekends (and will start up again for 2020 in Mid-March). Through October they are having DiggerFest weekends, and they are even having an all-night campout on October 26! (Check the site for details on how to participate and specifics on operating hours).
Included in the Admission!
Entrance to The Water Main is included in the price of admission to Diggerland USA! Birthday party packages and group purchases are also available and include access to The Water Main when open. (Diggerland XL for adults is, and has always been, a separate charge)
Diggerland representatives go on to say that they are adding this exciting 2 acre water attraction, without having to remove any of the existing fun and exciting park features!
Diggerland USA provided us with an aerial view and depiction of the location of the new aquatic park… and it really helps give an indication of the size of this new waterpark area, especially if you’ve been to Diggerland in the past!
- ten ride courses within which patrons drive a variety of construction or utility vehicles,
- twelve stationary excavators modified with an activity challenge (simulated “fishing” or “bowling” or operation of excavator arm and bucket to dig for artificial treasure bars),
- ten stationary excavators for operation of excavator arm and bucket to dig, lift and drop actual fill in the designated area;
- nine rides in which patrons are seated and the vehicle or machine is driven or operated by a park operator;
- a four‑level ropes course, a 32‑foot high climbing/rock wall, and a small child (only) playground structure.
The park also includes a 2‑seat zip line and arcade and carnival-style games and machines that are not included with the park admission charge.
As you can see… Diggerland USA is a 10 month-of-the-year entertainment complex… and season passes give you admission for the entire year! Yes, it includes the Diggerland USA construction park! Yes, it includes the Water Main Aquatic Park! A full year of fun!

Very close by to Diggerland USA is the Sahara Sam’s Indoor/Outdoor Waterpark. While originally Diggerland USA was created by Sahara Sam’s, about 4 years ago they moved into separate entities… so no… the tickets/passes aren’t interchangeable between the parks!
