We stopped at the office to make arrangements and we were told that it is no longer a business. They said the owners moved north and would not give us any information. We were there last week 9th of January 2014.

We arrived early which enabled us to watch the "Foreman" before us. They were right on time with their scheduling, and so pleasant and personable. The instructors were clear and concise, and the machines where in good working order. My husband thought this was truly one of the best presents to go play in the dirt. (although he thinks a...

My wife purchased the "operator" package for the excavator as a Christmas present. After my experience today, I would say it has to be one of the best presents I have ever received for Christmas. Jason & Alisa provide an experience that is hard to match. Jason is an excellent and patient instructor and he thoroughly explained how to operate... More

I had a great time at People at Play and would definitely recommend this attraction. I had a lot of fun. Everything was done with safety and professionalism. Wonderful couple who run People at Play. I will be back my next time in Bradenton.

My wife gave me an adventure to remember for my birthday. Two hours of playing in the dirt at "People at Play". I watched an instructional video before putting my hard hat on and venturing out to climb into the cab of an excavator. Jason gave me hands on instructions and then let me loose to play with the dirt.... More

This experience was a Christmas gift to my husband. The look on his face when he opened a package wrapped in CAUTION tape and pulled out a hard hat was priceless! He has always been fascinated with construction sites and equipment, so I figured this would be just the thing for him. I was right. From calling for information, to... More

Ran the excavator for 2 hrs. Minimal up front training/videos/signatures (~5 minutes) which was great. Able to climb on and run equipment right away. Folks running the program were great, let you do most anything or would help you as much as you wanted. 1st hour on your own digging, 2nd hour was an obsacle course that was lots of... More

My husband gave me a day at People at Play for my Christmas present. I have always loved heavy machinery, and had an amazing time. Drove a bulldozer, skid steer and excavator. They even had obstacle courses and games to test your skill which were a blast. Alisa was amazing to work with and her enthusiasm made the day even... More

I made a reservation as a surprise gift for my husband. After 35 years I have to say this was the best surprise he has ever gotten! Alisa and Jason gave him the experience of a lifetime.
