Being grown-up means too much responsibility and seriousness sometimes. Randy Stenger, a self-described “kid at heart,” opened in 2011 Extreme Sandbox, the first and only heavy equipment adventure in the Midwest, U.S. The 10-acre playground full of sandy soil is located in Hastings, Minnesota.

It might sound very funny, but actually is quite exciting. Grown-ups of any age, in search of an offbeat way to have fun, are coming at Extreme Sandbox for playing at choice on one of the heavy equipment pieces: an excavator, a bulldozer, a skid-steer or a fire truck. For family and friends that just want to observe the fun there is available a comfortable viewing area that overlooks the sandbox. The company is also booking its space and heavy equipment for parties and corporate events.
Extreme Sandbox is a serious business dedicated to entertain grown-ups in a special way. Here, highly trained instructors have the only goal to ensure clients a safe and fun experience. There is no need to have a driver’s license, but it is recommended to be dressed with durable clothing and wear close toed shoes.
It is funny how a child can make grow-ups realize that they can play also, with different toys, of course. The idea of this business came to Randy from one of his sons, while driving by a construction site. The little boy said it would be fantastic to play with trucks. Together with his brother, few years latter, Randy put the base of Extreme Sandbox.
Besides making grown-up having fun, the company strongly support the local community and is advocating for the construction industry. Customers not only spent a fun time driving heavy equipment, but walk away with a greater appreciation for the industry. What would you say playing with a bulldozer?
