Visitor Tips and News About Digger's Dungeon - Home of Grave Digger
Digger's Dungeon now has a cafe and monster truck rides for $5. Cash only! It was loads of fun for our 5 year old.[Kelley Smith, 08/12/2011]
Take a ride in King Sling, with seating for six and tires that weigh 700 pounds each. The course includes three dirt thrill hills, including one piled over a half-buried school bus.
Digger's Dungeon is the home of Dennis Anderson's Grave Digger, the most famous of monster trucks. The site has a gift shop with all types of Grave Digger merchandise. Hanging from the ceiling are mangled scraps of previous Grave Digger trucks (the shop emphasizes that the scraps are not for sale!). Photo ops: a full-scale Grave Digger is on display outside the shop, and in the store you can sit in a monster truck.
Next to the shop is a garage where you can see various monster truck maintenance projects in progress (my son got a kick out of seeing the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle truck).[Frank Abbott, 04/09/2007]
