  • Extreme Sandbox is a great experience. It's location is not too far from the city. (It has to be out a little bit to find open spaces for this type of thing). The building is very clean, (Check out th...  more »

  • 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!
  • A lot of fun. Great for corporate events. Did it as family Christmas gift. A bit pricey to do it often.
  • The sandbox was very EXTREME! My company went as a team-bonding, and it was much more as the Extreme Sandbox staff was very friendly, funny, and nurturing. The whole team had a blast using the bulldozer and excavator. An extreme ADVENTure!
  • Fabulous experience. Enjoyed every minute. Jason was our guide and instructor and and made it easy. We wanted to take our own photos, but we should have taken their reasonable photo package. Great time.
  • So much fun our instructor Jason was amazing and also so funny. Really awesome worker and loves what he does. I would do it again in a heartbeat. Amazing place.
