  • This was something my wife had wanted to do for some time so I bought her a gift certificate on the website. The transaction was seamless. Due to storms in the area, Randy personally called us to say that our originally scheduled time would he problematic due to lightning in the area. He promised to call us back as we were already on the way and sure enough, he did. We scheduled a later time and wandered around downtown Hastings for a bit. The training was actually fun and then it was out to the equipment. Excellent communication, and a fun obstacle course made the experience memorable. Great staff, great communication and doing something that we probably wouldn't made this a fantastic experience.
  • Great experience at Extreme Sandbox. 2nd time visiting! Good team (shout out to Marc) and fun activities on huge machines
  • We had an amazing experience! I will highly recommend Extreme Sandbox to anyone looking for a time "Outside the Box!"
  • Fantastic crew, great fun. Only wish I had more time! Great family Christmas gift.
  • My husband won the Dueling Adventures package at a charity auction and he chose to share it with his dad. They had a fantastic time in the excavators digging and playing "golf," and as a spectator I had an amazing time as well. Jason was an excellent guide, had a great sense of humor, and did a wonderful job of getting us spectators involved, bantering through our headsets. In all we were a group of 7 with a 2 year old, whose little mind was blown watching his uncle and grandpa drive one of his favorite machines. Jason let the little one explore (closely supervised of course) the various machines and he had so much fun, as did the rest of us. A great family excursion!
