Packages start with a basic safety briefing, during which guests learn to toggle switches, nurse levers, and recite seat-reclining incantations to Cat 247 skid steers. Then, they’ll use the equipment that comes with their chosen package to slalom through serpentine cones, dig up dirt, and shove around oversize tractor tires with simple flicks of the wrist. Extreme Sandbox is open year-round, and equipment may be operated in snow or dirt.
Spread across 10 acres of beige grains, Extreme Sandbox invites patrons to re-explore the art of playing in dirt from behind the wheels of heavy construction vehicles all year round. Participants 14 and older learn from highly trained instructors before stepping behind the earth-tilling instrumentation of Caterpillar construction equipment. Although most guests are first-timers, Extreme Sandbox’s obstacle course can be customized to challenge more experienced Cat captains. Individual packages for solo drivers include one to seven hours with the iron-plated warhorses, and group packages for up to 50 guests last two to eight hours. The oversize sandbox features indoor and outdoor observation areas from which family and friends can watch as loved ones create unforgettable impressions on memories and topsoil, in this new state-of-the-art training facility. Extreme Sandbox continues earn press accolades and a leave lasting impression on its guests, who voted it the #1 tourist attraction in Metro Minneapolis-Saint Paul on Tripadvisor. Its climate-controlled equipment makes it a friendly place to play in sand or snow.
