basketball but not as you know it
Oct 2021
This was so much fun, we were lucky enough to get a two for one deal on the big diggers. we had a great coach giving us instruction on what to do and how to do it, the only down fall was the we were both doing it at the same time, so we did get any photos of us doing the different activities, they do come out and take a photo of you sitting in the digger, but they cant take photos when you are driving them.
Next time we do it we will do it at different times, we loved it so much we nearly went back the next day. We will be back, and we recommend giving it a go even if you are not into heavy equipment.

This is a brilliant experience. Go for the heavy equipment and you will be surprised with what you can do with a little bit of coaching. I would love to do it again... bulldozer is on the bucket list!!

Absolute tremendous fun
Jan 2021
I did the Dig and Destroy session on 21st January as a retirement birthday gift from my husband, who took photos and videos. It was the most fun thing I've ever done! I smiled so much and told heaps of friends and family about it. I dug holes, moved tyres about, spun the whole digger one way and the other really fast, picked up basketballs off road cones and placed them on another and the final excitement was changing to an even bigger digger and crushing a car. I can't tell you enough about how satisfying it was to end with that! Colin (instructor) was excellent talking to me through the head phones and Courtney in the Office took photos. I felt sorry for poor Colin standing out in the rain. Even in the rain it was an experience I will never forget. I absolutely loved it - thank you for all the smiles.

Thank you so much for spending your birthday with us. We loved having you there and seeing your face light up when you had to start spinning the machine round and round. Come back soon and smash that car!

Best 21st present
Jan 2021 • Family
We decided to come and do the dig and destroy for the kids 21st and the husband also took part. They enjoyed it so much and you couldn't stop them smiling for the rest if the day. The guys that instructed them where fantastic they where friendly and professional and really made the activity. I would recommend this to everyone. We will be back again for sure.
