I booked Extreme Sandbox (Excavator) as a fun birthday present for my boyfriend. He LOVED it! The instructors are great and make it a fun experience for all (even I had a great time as a spectator). In fact, we loved it so much that we booked the dueling excavators for my boyfriend's Dad as a father's day gift. I... More

I had the amazing pleasure of spending the afternoon at Extreme Sandbox with a group of colleagues yesterday and couldn't have been more impressed with the experience. Randy and his team are exceptionally gifted in making the experience one that you, your team, your family, etc. won't forget. They do an amazing job of training you to operate the machines... More

I took one of my brothers to experience an Extreme Sandbox mini session and he had a great time operating the Large Wheel Loader. I would recommend Extreme Sandbox to anyone that has an interest in operating large earth moving vehicles. And Extreme Sandbox is very family friendly in that they invite you out on the course to watch your... More

We went to Extreme Sandbox to play with excavators. The experience was great. We started by watching an informative and humorous video on how to use the controls of the excavator. Our instructor Matt then gave us headphones so we could all communicate while in the field. We each had our own excavator to use (2 of us) and Matt... More

The staff here is great and they help make this a one of a kind experience. The bulldozer obstacle course was a blast. I would definitely love to come back and try some of the other equipment.

Patient, very helpful and all around added to the experience. I would recommend this to anyone who has always wondered what it would be like to run this equipment. Equipment was new, top... More

This was a surprise for my husband while visiting another couple in Brooklyn Park, Minnesota. Once we arrived, the other husband signed on. The instruction video was entertaining and very well done. Jason and Matt worked with the guys on the bulldozer and excavator, communicating with headsets that the could also listen in on. They had a blast! Highly recommend... More
