This is a surprising thrill to be able to drive huge and powerful machinery. The grown ups loved it as much as the kids. Highly recommended if going to Invercargill. The staff were fun and friendly too. Ben from Brisbane.

Absolutely! There is something for every age and every ability at Dig This! Even the little nippers under 4 who aren't quite old enough for the real diggers can have a ball in our sandpit!
