This Dig and Destroy session is part of New Zealand's first heavy equipment playground, Dig This, established in 2017.

Ground-breaking in more ways than one, Dig This is an experience quite unlike any other. This is your chance to operate bulldozers, excavators, mini excavators and skid steers in a giant gravel pit. You don't need any experience or even a drivers license, the Dig This team will teach you all their tricks!

This Dig and Destroy experience will let you work out any of your frustrations, and have a whole lot of fun doing it. You’ll be behind the controls of a 20 ton excavator, smashing up a vehicle (yes, a vehicle!) and then a 15 ton excavator where you can test your skills by digging, pushing and lifting your way through a series of exercises like building mounds, digging trenches, stacking 2,000lb tyres and playing bucket basketball.

Based on the hugely popular formula established by Dig This Las Vegas, this is crazy, quirky and very unique experience that will not disappoint.
