What To Expect
In the bulldozer, build huge mounds, push gigantic tires and teeter-totter over a mega mound. With the excavator, dig gigantic trenches, stack 2,000 pound tires and play a game of 'Bucket Basketball.'
Begin with a safety briefing and some instruction from the expert staffers, then get outfitted for a neon yellow vest and hardhat. Also, each guest must take a breathalyzer test to ensure they can operate the equipment safely and responsibly.
Next, hop in the cab for some hands-on training so every button and lever makes perfect sense. Then it’s time to ride. Wheeling these machines around the desert might take some getting used to, so there will be a few warm-up exercises to get things going in the right direction — as in digging, trenching, pushing and dragging a haul around the lot.
Want to really test those heavy equipment skills? The instructors will guide guests through a game of ‘Excavator Basketball’ or ‘Bulldozer Teeter-Totter’ just for the fun of it. Also, feel free to tear, dig, rip, claw, grind and drive around as much as desired.
If you're short on time or want a "mini" experience, select from one of the following experiences:
• Mini Excavator Experience (60-minute experience) In the luxury of a climate controlled cab, enjoy the thrill of operating this fun sized, 5.5 ton digger. Dig deep, play excavator basketball and back fill with a blade and bucket.
• Skid Steer Track Loader Experience (60-minute experience) Enjoy moving tons of dirt, stacking tires over a pole and driving an obstacle course in these easy to operate little diggers
