Outer Banks’ Monster Neighbor to the North: Grave Digger

After almost four years of OBX blogging and over 1300 posts, it occurred to me today that I’ve never mentioned the OBX’s monster neighbor to the north, Grave Digger – as in the legendary monster truck, Grave Digger.

Did you know Grave Diggers home (i.e. Digger’s Dungeon) is in Currituck, about 20 minutes north of the OBX?! Awesome, right?!

And here’s another Grave Digger tidbit, this is the 30th anniversary. Wow! 30 years?! I feel old. Grave Digger most certainly is a legend in the monster truck world.

A legend? Most certainly. But over-the-hill? Definitely not. Check out this article from MSN covering Grave Diggers recent win in front of a packed house in Tacoma Washington. The photo (below) is amazing, and the caption sums up Grave Digger perfectly…

Seeing a 12,000 pound truck powered by a 1,500 horsepower engine fly this high through the air is worth putting on your bucket list.  Grave Digger’s freestyle performance was the closing act at Monster Jam on Saturday, and it brought the house down.

On your next trip to the Outer Banks, a stop at Digger’s Dungeon is definitely worthwhile. The truck is amazing – even if you don’t consider yourself a monster truck fan – then again, who isn’t? :) It’s a great stop for the entire family. You can get up close to the truck, the store offers a wide range of Digger gear, there’s a diner there, and they even offer monster truck rides! I’m pretty sure it’s impossible to leave there without a smile from ear to ear.

Address: 5650 Caratoke Hwy Poplar Branch, NC 27965

Directions: The Store is located on Highway 158 about 40 miles from the Virginia Line. Highway 158 runs along the coast. The dungeon is 15-20 miles north of Kill Devil Hills. For more information you can call the Dungeon at 252-453-4121.

Here’s a quick video of Grave Digger in action…awesome!
