NZ Has Opened A Heavy Vehicle Theme Park For Grown-Ups

Dig This, Invercargill, New Zealand

If getting behind the wheel of monstrous excavators sounds likes a good time to you, listen up: Dig This, a heavy vehicle theme park, has recently set up shop in New Zealand.

NZ’s southernmost town, Invercargill, has welcomed the country’s first ever heavy equipment playground, the only one in the southern hemisphere.

It boasts a massive sandpit for grown-ups, filled with gravel, sand and an array of heavy machinery.

New Zealand local Ed Mumm built the first ever Dig This in Steamboat Springs, Colorado, back in 2007, before opening a second park in Las Vegas. Now, after its roaring success, Mumm has returned home, setting up a base for big machinery.

The park has nine activities on offer. Those looking to let off a little steam can smash cars into little pieces or, if you’re already pretty chill, practice precision by scooping and moving various objects.

Kid-sized machines are on site, too, for wannabe construction workers (or adults who aren’t overly keen).
