Amusement Parks “near Me” | Extreme Sandbox

Though Extreme Sandbox isn’t your typical amusement park with roller coasters and ice cream, we’re sure that it’s the most unique thrill-lands that you’ll ever visit. This Heavy Equipment Adventure company lets their visitors play on construction equipment, like 26-ton excavators and bulldozers, all for fun inside of their giant sandbox. Don’t worry, safety is our most important value as men and women of all ages come together to enjoy this extremely rare opportunity.

There’s no other place in the world where you can drive a bulldozer, crush a car, and then go for a ride in a firetruck all in one day. Individual and group packages are available, so if you’re looking for a fun corporate retreat event or something fun for family and friends, they make it easy to get a good price for an afternoon of destruction!

  • Individual packages: With an individual package, you can pick one piece of construction equipment to use for an hour or 90 minutes. You’ll get an orientation on how to use the construction equipment. When you enter the sandbox, you’ll find an obstacle course for additional fun.
  • Group packages: These packages are perfect for parties, corporate team building, and various events. Extreme Sandbox can accommodate groups all the way up to 100 people, and their staff can even accommodate transportation and catering needs.
  • Heavy Metal Drive Thru Exhibit: The interactive construction exhibit at Extreme Sandbox allows people to come and watch the heavy equipment at work. Three versions of the show are available, each featuring real heavy equipment operation.
