People at Play: The Heavy Equipment Experience

People at Play: The Heavy Equipment Experience is the only place in Florida where individuals can operate construction excavators, loaders and bulldozers in a fun construction themed environment! Open seasonally from November through April, check the "come play in the dirt" website for available booking dates. After a comprehensive safety and machine orientation crew members experience the thrill of operating real construction machines in safe, open spaces with huge piles of dirt to move around. Packages including one-of-a-kind challenge courses are also available. The name People at Play is a tongue-in-cheek reference to the well recognized Men at Work construction signs. People at Play is brought to you by construction industry veterans who also own and operate a successful excavation and utility construction firm. Guests must be aged 18 or over to participate. Group team-building events can be customized for small groups up to 12 people. Programs designed to improve communications, inspire new ways of thinking or just simply for having fun together can be created by the People at Play team.
