Want to have a couple of hours of just plain fun? Get on over to Extreme Sandbox. We've been there twice and we're ready to go again. Our Dualing Excavator package gave us an hour and a half of pure fun. Luke was a great (and patient) instructor. We were briefed on safety and operation of the equipment then taken out to the sandbox for some hands on instruction. Then it was just fun, fun, fun. The real question is "How can an hour and a half pass so quickly?"

We had a great time at a 70th birthday party for my uncle, and everyone in 4 generations had a fabulous time, down to my 2 year old son. The staff was wonderful - very professional, fun, well organized and helpful. The concept and setup of this place is awesome and the staff really went above and beyond to make it an excellent experience for everyone. Highly recommend!

I bought the Dualing Excavator package to give to my sister and brother-n-law as a gift. We all joined the training session given through video and instructor explanation. Humor was incorporated throughout the training yet there was ample explanation and time for questions. After the training, they put on their safety gear and headed out to the equipment. I was on camera duty with their 2 year old grandson and watched from a distance. Sufficient time was given to practice how to use the equipment, as well as to participate in a few competitions between them. They were in constant contact with the instructor and evan I had headphones to hear what they were talking about. The whole experience was great fun and professionally and safely run. This was a great way to spend the afternoon. We then headed to the Onion Grille in town and Hastings Coop Creamery for a malt.

We had an awesome time! Fun coaches and air conditioned cabs. Challenging and confidence building! Many opportunities to test skills we never knew we had.

When and where does the everyday person get to operate CAT heavy equipment? Never until now!. The instruction and fun you have is excellent. It is also challenging to operate the equipment and gives you a new appreciation to the guy building a highway next to you.
