Participants who enlist in the mini-sandbox adventure ease into the experience with 15–20 minutes of instruction, during which they learn to toggle switches, nurse levers, and recite seat-reclining incantations to Cat 247 skid steers. Equipped with bright-yellow vests and hands-free headsets, participants then step inside climate-controlled cabs for 40-minute jaunts through a timed and challenging obstacle course. Drivers deftly slalom through serpentine cones, dig up dirt, and shove around oversize tractor tires with simple flicks of the wrist.
Three pieces of equipment—an excavator, bulldozer, and skid steer—are available for groups of up to 10. Three instructors oversee participants, who enjoy uninhibited access to the entire course. This Groupon makes for an original package for parties for any occasion, including graduations, bachelor parties, and Truckasaurus family reunions. With the minimum age for participation at 14, birthday parties are also welcome.<p>
