Come out and play in the dirt! You can join the crew at People at Play as an “Operator,” “Foreman” or “Superintendent” depending on the amount of time and how many pieces of construction equipment you are interested in operating.
When you join the crew at People at Play you’ll test your hand/eye coordination with fun games and unique challenges using some of the world’s most extreme construction machines. You’ll definitely get a chance to dig in the dirt, but you can also choose to experience a demanding one-of-a-kind obstacle course and learn how we “dunk” a soccer ball using a huge steel bucket bucket on the end of the stick of a 20,000 lb. excavator!
Your ‘job’ at People at Play: The Heavy Equipment Experience was designed with one thing in mind: FUN! You’ll love testing your own agility and dexterity using different equipment made for earthmoving. And as an added bonus you’ll have a new-found respect and appreciation for the construction workers who use these machines to build today’s roads, highways and infrastructure.
