This is a surprising thrill to be able to drive huge and powerful machinery. The grown ups loved it as much as the kids. Highly recommended if going to Invercargill. The staff were fun and friendly too. Ben from Brisbane.

What an awesome experience we ALL had on my 56th Birthday! Two "townie" boys 11, 14 as well as my 78 y.o. Father had a FANTASTIC time. Instructors so patient.

My son (5yo) has an awesome time at Dig This! His instructor was brilliant at explaining what to do and engaging in conversation with him. Fair to say my son didn’t want to leave. Thanks again for a great morning activity.

Absolutely! There is something for every age and every ability at Dig This! Even the little nippers under 4 who aren't quite old enough for the real diggers can have a ball in our sandpit!
