My 10 year old daughter was very pleased running the mini-excavator! Mark walked her through the steps via headset. It was very muddy because of all the rain we've had,so prepare for that, but it actually made it more fun for her!

What an awesome experience! Mark was completely amazing and patient with my son who has autism. An exciting adventure that the kids get to leave with a souvenir (car part) and a peek into what a future career could be!

My adult son and I had a blast working the diggers and competing in a basketball game. Instructors kept it fun and safe. Made a special fantastic memory we will never forget.
