Absolute tremendous fun
Jan 2021
I did the Dig and Destroy session on 21st January as a retirement birthday gift from my husband, who took photos and videos. It was the most fun thing I've ever done! I smiled so much and told heaps of friends and family about it. I dug holes, moved tyres about, spun the whole digger one way and the other really fast, picked up basketballs off road cones and placed them on another and the final excitement was changing to an even bigger digger and crushing a car. I can't tell you enough about how satisfying it was to end with that! Colin (instructor) was excellent talking to me through the head phones and Courtney in the Office took photos. I felt sorry for poor Colin standing out in the rain. Even in the rain it was an experience I will never forget. I absolutely loved it - thank you for all the smiles.

Thank you so much for spending your birthday with us. We loved having you there and seeing your face light up when you had to start spinning the machine round and round. Come back soon and smash that car!

Best 21st present
Jan 2021 • Family
We decided to come and do the dig and destroy for the kids 21st and the husband also took part. They enjoyed it so much and you couldn't stop them smiling for the rest if the day. The guys that instructed them where fantastic they where friendly and professional and really made the activity. I would recommend this to everyone. We will be back again for sure.

Best Fun for all
Nov 2020
This was the best fun ever! I first saw Dig This on TV years ago and am so pleased I finally got to do it. Thanks to the wonderful staff who gave good clear instruction and made the experience so enjoyable. My friends (20-70 yrs) all extremely jealous.
