  • Have you ever wondered what it would be like to operate an excavator or a bulldozer? Well, now you can at the first heavy equipment play area in the United States!

    With the guidance of knowledgeable and experienced instructors, you will be successfully operating one of these powerful machines in less than 10 minutes through a course that will take you through a series of activities where you will move mountains, dig trenches, test your hand eye coordination by stacking rocks in a pyramid, and so much more.

    Your adventure begins with a short safety lesson and equipment overview. Then, under the guidance of a professionally trained instructor, you will take the controls of a modern, climate controlled, CAT 315 Track Excavator or a CAT D5G Bulldozer.

    You will be amazed not only at the incredible power of these machines, but also at how easy they are to operate. A simple movement of the joystick-style hand controls and you have just picked up a massive boulder or dug a four foot deep trench!

    If you can't choose which machine to operate, try them both with the Mega Dig package. No experience or training is required for any activity, only the desire to have fun!

    Mini Excavator and Skid Steer Track Loader option
    Enjoy the thrill of operating the 5.5 ton Mini Excavator or a Skid Steer Track Loader. During the Mini Excavator experience you will dig deep, play excavator basketball and back fill with a blade and bucket. Enjoy moving tons of dirt, stacking tires over a pole and driving an obstacle course in these easy to operate little diggers during the Skid Steer Track Loader experience.
