  • 31 August 2017

New Zealand’s first heavy equipment playground, Dig This Invercargill, will officially open on Monday 2 October 2017. A huge amount of work is currently underway ensuring the new facilities at 84 Otepuni Ave are ready for those eager to get a first try at Dig This Invercargill.

Lex Chisholm, Dig This Invercargill Manager says “We have had so many enquiries from punters eager to have a go. It’s awesome to get such a positive response. I can say, I’ve tried this activity myself in Las Vegas and it was ridiculously fun. We can’t wait for our Invercargill guests to have the same experience”.   

Members from the Las Vegas operation will attend the official opening of Dig This Invercargill. With original founder and owner of Dig This Las Vegas, Ed Mumm being one of them. Ed says “I’m very much looking forward to coming to Invercargill. We are so excited that Transport World included Dig This in their portfolio of amazing attractions. Being a Kiwi who grew up in the South, it is especially exciting to bring this experience from Las Vegas to New Zealand”.

Dig This Invercargill will allow everyone the opportunity to relive their childhood sand box days again. It is perfect for anyone who has ever driven past a construction site or farm and thought ‘I wish I could have a go on that digger or bulldozer’. Dig This Invercargill allows guests the opportunity to do so in a completely safe and controlled environment.

Dig This Invercargill has chosen to use Caterpillar equipment, with the first machines scheduled to arrive in late August. In total, nine experiences will operate on 14 machines which include excavators, bulldozers and skid steers. Car smashing via an excavator will also be available.  

For those eager to learn more about Dig This Invercargill, a new website went live this week.  All details can be found via www.transportworld.nz. Online bookings are available and encouraged as allocated spaces are filling fast. Dig This Invercargill will operate set departures at 9.00am, 11.00am, 1.00pm and 3.00pm. A 5.00pm departure will be available in the summer months on request.
