Did you have a sandbox that you used to play in when you were a kid? Well, then you’re going to love this: a big kid’s sandbox where you get to play with real bulldozers and excavators. The program starts with classroom instruction where you get the overview on how to operate the big machines. It’s a lot more complicated than you’d think, requiring a level of hand-eye coordination far beyond that of piloting an SUV. Next, you get to climb into the machine out in a big dirt lot and get used to the controls. Then the real fun starts, with a series of games and challenges that include digging holes, moving rocks, and even playing a version of excavator basketball. It isn’t cheap, but fantasy fulfillment rarely is.
