Do your kids love watching big construction equipment at work? Are they (and you) tired of being cooped up in the house?
Extreme Sandbox in Hastings, MN is a heavy equipment adventure company where you can play on construction equipment.
However, with the current pandemic going on, they are instead offering FREE shows where you can sit in your car and watch big construction equipment at work.
It’s called “Heavy Metal Drive Thru” and shows are every Saturday now through May! Each show will have between 4-6 pieces of heavy equipment operating and doing a variety of activities.
UPDATE: This has been so popular they now have added new shows!
Here are the upcoming shows:
Saturday, May 2nd at 12:00pm, 2:00pm and 4:00pm
Saturday, May 9th at 11:00am (Demolition Derby – special show), 2:00pm and 4:00pm
Saturday, May 16th at 4:00pm
Saturday, May 23rd at 4:00pm
Saturday, May 30th at 4:00pm
It is FREE and open to the public, but they do ask for people coming to secure a free ticket online in advance so they can plan accordingly. When you get a free ticket you can drive through as many times as you would like and park behind the front row. You only need one ticket per vehicle.
The Demolition Derby tickets are $30 and up.

The best part – you never have to get out of your vehicle so it’s very safe!
You may want to consider purchasing front row reserved parking for the best view (which also supports their small business). These cost $15 – 50 per vehicle.
They also have private shows available for $300 – $500. It’s a bit of a splurge but is a great way to enjoy some of your stimulus money while supporting the economy, if you can afford to. However…
