Unleash your inner child on the ultimate construction-themed playground and get ready for some serious side-splitting fun. This is your chance to play with some of the mightiest heavy duty construction ‘toys' around as you knock things over, grind stuff up and scoop up giant mounds of mud and sand (all under the supervision, of course, of a sensible grown-up).
On this adventure, you can construct your own fantasy day as you choose between a Caterpillar Track-Type Bulldozer or 315CL Hydraulic Excavator (a decision which usually rests on whether you prefer to crush and pulverize stuff or dig holes and make a great big mess!).
Your day begins with a safety and training orientation session designed to familiarize yourself with the equipment, including an in-cab lesson. Next up, it's time for some warm up exercises to get you digging, pushing and dragging like a champ. At all times, you'll be connected via headset to an instructor so that you can operate smoothly, under the watchful eyes of your crew. Finally, it's the moment you've been waiting for as you are guided through a series of activities to test your skills. From Excavator Basketball to pushing gigantic tires, digging gigantic trenches to stacking 2,000 pound tires, you'll be laughing so much by the end of your session that your sides will literally be aching!
You’ll have the opportunity to learn from instructors with years of experience in real-world construction applications, on all types of commercial job sites, teaching you how to safety and effectively operate these powerful earthmoving machines.
This experience can be enjoyed all year round, with three sessions scheduled daily at 10, 12 and 2pm.
At the time of booking you will be asked to decide whether you prefer to drive a CAT Track-Type Excavator or Hydraulic Excavator on the day. When making your decision you will be able to view the activities available with each machine. For example, Bulldozer Exercises include building huge mounds, pushing gigantic tires and playing ‘Teeter-Totter’ over a mega mound while excavator exercises include digging gigantic trenches, stacking 2,000 pound tires and playing “Bucket Basketball”.
You’ll start each session with a quick overview of the safety procedures that you are required to follow before you are fitted for your authentic neon yellow vest and hardhat!
In Cab Orientation
Next up, you’ll be seated at the helm of a giant earth mover as instructors walk you through every lever and button that you need to know in order to maneuver the machine. After just a short time of in-cab training, you will have the confidence it takes to get to the business of play.
Warm Up Exercises
You’ll take part in a series of warm up exercises to get you digging like a champ. You will be connected via headset to an instructor at all times so that you can operate smoothly, under the watchful eyes of our crew. From here you will be digging, trenching, pushing, and dragging your haul around the lot in no time.
Now that you’re a pro at the basic operation of the machine, staff will guide you through a series of activities to test your skills. Ever played a game of “Excavator Basketball,” or built and ridden your own “Bulldozer Teeter-Totter?” Well, after this experience, you can say you have.
Just like recess at school, it’s time to set you loose. Tear, dig, rip, claw, grind, and drive to your heart’s content (under the watchful eye of your instructors, of course). Is there something you’ve always wanted to see these machines do, up close, and personal? Well here’s your chance during the free time segment of the experience. If you don’t have sore cheeks from smiling, and tired abdominal muscles from laughing after this phase of the game, then you’re not trying hard enough!
You worked hard and have proven your skills behind the controls of America’s most powerful machines. Now it’s time to celebrate with an official Certificate of Completion, and a photo opportunity to commemorate your achievement.
