About This Experience

General Information hide

Experience the thrill of digging and playing in the dirt behind the controls of Heavy Equipment!  Let out the kid in you during this Extreme Sandbox Experience in Hastings, Minnesota! 

Just a short drive from Minneapolis or Saint Paul, this Heavy Machine Operating adventure takes place in a 10-acre “sandbox”. The ninety-minute adventure begins with an in-cab over view of the machine and safety procedures of either an Excavator, Bulldozer or Skid Steer. Once fully briefed, you will learn to maneuver the machine of your choice through a few warm-up exercises. After you’re comfortable operating the machine, you will then be guided through a series of exercises before enjoying some free time during which you’ll be able to tear, dig, rip, claw, grind, and drive for an hour of fun!

So, climb on up and prepare for the thrill of a lifetime! This Earth Moving Adventure in Minnesota is the perfect unique gift for thrill seekers. We guarantee you'll walk away with a grin and lasting memories!
