    Today was my sons birthday who turned 3. I knew he couldn't ride the equipment but this truly fit his "dump truck themed party". We drove an hour to come down. I have to say Matt at Extreme Sandbox gave him an awesome experience. My son was able to watch a customer drive the excavator. Then after they were done, Matt went to work to fill back the whole. All the while longer my son was having the time of his life. Thank you extreme Sandbox and thank you Matt. This truly made his birthday the much more special!

    What an awesome experience, I cannot recommend Extreme Sandbox enough. The staff were excellent with a great overview and instructions of our event. There were 4 of us that came to operate excavators and dozers and we all had a great time, big smiles all around, 5 stars!!!!
