Dig This Invercargill has eight new team members on board, who have had to hit the ground running to learn their new roles in preparation for the opening on 2 October.  

There is a lot for them to get up to speed with, especially for the newly created on-field instructor positions. A huge part of the Dig This experience, the instructors will personally guide every guest through their chosen ‘Big Kid‘ ride. This allows every guest to not only have a huge amount of fun, but also feel supported and in control.

Dig This Invercargill has eight new ‘Big Kid‘ rides on offer, including the Big Dig Excavator, Big Push Bulldozer, Aggression Session, Dig & Destroy, Mega Dig, Mighty Dig and Loads Of Fun Skid Steer Experience (ages 14+).      

Colin Lindsay, one of the new instructors, says he really wanted to work at Dig This Invercargill.

“It‘s just a fun and unique experience. It‘s also absolutely awesome for Invercargill. I didn‘t realise it, but Dig This is currently not offered anywhere else in the Southern Hemisphere! It‘s so cool that we now have this in Invercargill and that I get to work here.”

Dig This Invercargill is New Zealand‘s first heavy equipment playground. Designed to be a huge amount of fun, Dig This is a light-hearted, interactive attraction that is kind of crazy (in a good way). Dig This gives guests the opportunity to operate bulldozers and diggers themselves, while challenging themselves to a series of games and activities.

Outside of the Big Kid rides, Mini Digs are available for children (ages 4+) and any adult who is not quite ready for the big machines. These fixed position excavators are designed to offer a great introduction into the world of heavy machinery. Dig This also has a number of group booking options, ranging from 5 to 54 people.
