Construction site fun
An upcoming attraction at Thunderbird Park has attracted nationwide attention, being the first and only of its kind. Opening May 2023, Dig IT will provide opportunities for all members of the family to operate authentic excavator machinery and enjoy construction-themed challenges.

Participation Requirements

Children 4 years and younger will be required to sit on the lap of a parent or guardian whilst operating machinery.

Children 5 years and older will be permitted to operate machinery from the driver's seat. Supervising adults will not only be able to assist, but they will also be able to join in!

The Experience

Participants will enjoy four dedicated challenge zones, within a session of two hours duration.

Upon arrival, visitors will sign in at the Dig IT site office and attend site safety induction training. All necessary safety equipment will be provided for each activity, including a high-visibility vest and hard hat.

At the first challenge zone (The Dig IT Zone) participants will learn how to operate a 1.7 tonne excavator. With these newly acquired skills, they will knock over towers with a wrecking ball (The Demolition Zone) and hook a crocodile (The Croc Zone).

The final challenge (RC Zone) will allow participants to operate 1.14 true scale, fully hydraulic machines. These will include dozers, dump trucks, excavators and rear loaders.
