BERLIN— A new amusement park is coming to South Jersey this summer.


Diggerland Adventure Park, which is being touted by developers as the first construction-themed amusement park in the United States, will be built in West Berlin, Camden County, a spokesman for the company building the 14-acre park confirmed today.


The park is built by Sahara Sam's Oasis at 100 Pinedge Drive, adjacent to its indoor-outdoor water park on Route 73, spokesman Chris Peters said. Peters said ground has already been broken and that Diggerland is tentatively scheduled for an early summer opening.


There are four similar theme parks in England.


The company will hold a press conference on Tuesday to release further information about the project. It posted an opening for a park manager on an online job site last month.


The township zoning board approved the project at a November meeting, Peters said.


Diggerland lets visitors ride full-size construction equipment, according to its website. There are also play areas and sand pits. Among the top attractions at its English parks are Sky Shuttle, Spin Dizzy and a six-ton digger.


The park will include some of those rides as well as new attractions that the United Kingdom parks don't have, Peters said.
