Customer Reviews

The guys at Extreme Sandbox were fun and the experience was one to remember!

Fantastic experience. It was a surprise gift for my wife and turned out to be more fun than I expected for both of us.
Michael W. · November 1, 2013
Great fun for anyone who's ever wanted to play with an excavator and/or a bull dozer. You can pay extra to upgrade to more features/equipment. They're friendly, use humor, and you leave with a good sense of how to dig holes and move dirt. Makes you really want to spend a full day playing with one.
