Any kid who loves playing with Tonka trucks, especially in the dirt, will find Diggerland USA almost too good to be true.

It's an unusual theme park that opened this month in West Berlin, N.J. which is 15 miles south east of Philadelphia. Everything about this park revolves around heavy construction equipment. A similar park operates in Las Vegas.

The rides have varying minimum height requirements. The park is designed for children who are at least 36 inches tall. Children under this height are free to enter the park, however they will be limited to the attractions they may participate in.
