A great experience. Very friendly and helpful staff. It was great fun operating machinery that I would never usually be able to do. My instructor made the tasks easier, but also gave me opportunities to make mistakes and learn. Highly recommended.More

Absolutely! There is something for every age and every ability at Dig This! Even the little tots under 5 who aren't quite old enough for the real diggers can have a ball in our sandpit!
