Release your inner 10-year old!
Oct 2019
And you thought that playing in the sandbox was fun. Come on out and see what it feels like to actually DO what you see on the Discovery Channel and construction videos. Mark and his coworkers have the talents of teachers, the patience of Job, and the infectious good humor of cruise directors! They'll instruct you through the headphones (move this lever that way, and that lever this way) in real time to make these monsters do what you want them to. Like playing video games with multi-ton machinery.

The 45 minute package - Ever want to drive a tank? These tracks operate the same way, less 30 tons of armor and a cannon of course.

Oh, and be careful who you bring along. I know from experience that it can be embarrassing when your wife or kids show you up at excavator basketball or on the obstacle course!

A once in a lifetime experience.

You will be very pleasantly surprised
Aug 2019
My 14 year old son and I took advantage of a recent Groupon offer to visit the Heavy Metal Playground on 24 Aug. On arrival it doesn't look much, but in this case looks are very much deceiving. Mike and Mark are excellent at guiding you through the process even if you do forget your left's and right's. We dug, played ball and drove the machinery. We would highly recommend that you opt for the 45 minute "course" as this is the one that includes actually moving the digger. Clearly the teenager was much better than the father due to many more hours practicing with thumb-work. 2 big kids left the site with huge smiles.

Jul 2019 • Family
took my boys, age 11, 14 and they LOVED it! the guys there, Mike and Mark, could not have been more helpful. they clearly enjoyed what they were doing too. this was despite some rain. i would have done it if we had more time! great activity, a short hour from Columbia. Bring a change of clothes just in case. we did the 30 min package + car smash.

Fun for Everyone
Oct 2018 • Couples
We had two groups do back-to-back "Appetite for Destruction". Staff was friendly, patient, and made everyone feel comfortable operating the equipment. The grounds were very muddy from recent rain, but that actually added to the fun - bring clothes and shoes that you can afford to get dirty. A great fun time was had by all. Definitely would recommend trying this at least once.

Great fun at Heavy Metal Playground!
Oct 2018 • Couples
I gave my wife a gift coupon for Heavy Metal Playground for her birthday. She and I went and did it together last weekend absolutely loved it! Scheduling was easy and they were very flexible. The activities themselves are totally fun! I wasn't sure how structured and limited the equipment involvement would be but after some basic training we got right into the "basketball" game and then had an awesome time smashing up a van. I would definitely recommend this for adults, families, corporate outings, and other group events. Both men who led the activity were friendly, organized, and kept things moving. Try it out!

Awesome
Oct 2018 • Family
My 10 year old son and his friend went, they had a blast! Was super muddy which made it even better splashing stuff around. Mike and Mark were both great guys and super informative with the boys. Set up great games and competitions for them. Also smashing the car was cool, and got a souvenir hub caps!

Great activity!
Sep 2018 • Family
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!

Awesome Adventure!!
Sep 2018 • Family
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!

For quite some time I had been looking for a unique activity that my young cousins would enjoy for a boys day out and boy was this the perfect match. Thanks to Groupon the five of us had an amazing time. Mark, the owner was very informative and inspiring, especially after he had taken the time to explain the non-profit component for a nunch of epsides developing to , let alone bonus boys all had a blast and I look forward to visiting their again.
