For this experience, our partners are taking extra measures to help prevent any potential spread of COVID-19. These measures include wiping down all surfaces prior to the experience. All operators will be given protective gloves to avoid direct contact with controls and handles. Additionally, all guests and staff will be given a head thermometer test upon arrival. During the experience, you will be instructed via hands-free headsets that will be cleaned prior to use. Our partners kindly request that you bring your own mask to wear. There will be plenty of room to maintain social distancing and spectators are still encouraged to come and watch! These Covid-19 safety measures are subject to change.

What can I expect during this experience?

You can expect to have a great time operating a Caterpillar 313FL or 315CL excavator. The goal is to dig, claw, and drive this machine to your heart’s content.

What should I wear? Will I get dirty?

Closed toe shoes are required to participate. Otherwise, wear clothing that is comfortable and weather appropriate. You might get a little dust on your shoes, but unless you want to lie down and roll in the dirt, you’ll leave squeaky clean.

Can my friends and family watch?

Yes! There are two dedicated areas for spectators to watch and take photos. 

Can I have someone ride in the cab with me?

No. For safety reasons, all machines are for one person. 

Do I need a driver's license?

Nope, no driving experience needed!

What is the accessibility of this experience?

Most disabilities can be accommodated during this experience. However, you must have good vision and have good use of your upper body. If you are deaf or hard of hearing, we ask that you bring along someone who can help the instructors facilitate through sign language. If you require special accommodations, please contact Virgin Experience Gifts prior to booking to ensure your needs can be met. 

What if I don't speak or understand English?

All instruction is given in English. However, our experience providers are more than happy to allow an interpreter out into the field to assist with this experience. If you plan on bringing an interpreter, please contact Virgin Experience Gifts prior to booking to ensure your needs can be met. 

Why do I have to take a breathalyzer test?

Because safety is our partner's number one priority and concern, all individuals must be able to pass a breathalyzer in order to operate your machine. If you fail this test, you will not be allowed to participate and you will lose the value of your experience.
