For all those who have ever dreamed of operating an excavator, bulldozer, or another piece of heavy construction equipment, Extreme Sandbox is opening just the place at The Station in Sachse this September.
Extreme Sandbox brings heavy equipment and adventure entertainment together to give individuals and corporate groups the opportunity for some large-scale fun. The company is moving its Texas location from Pottsboro—near Lake Texoma—to the fast-growing The Station in Sachse, which is finishing out its first phase of construction at the mixed-use development.
“After a successful appearance on ‘Shark Tank’ in 2016, we are excited to call The Station our new Texas home,” Randy Stenger, Extreme Sandbox CEO and founder, said in a statement. “The City of Sachse is an incredible community and the perfect hub for new businesses to grow and thrive. We look forward to bringing this exciting outdoor activity to the district and expect to benefit from the strong corporate presence in Dallas and surrounding areas. Where else can you play with a 26-ton excavator for fun?”
With two primary locations—the first in its home base of Hastings, Minnesota—Extreme Sandbox gives guests the chance to operate construction equipment under the supervision of trained instructors. Activities listed on its website include dueling bulldozers, crushing cars, and going on an obstacle course. The company will also offer heavy-equipment training for those pursuing careers in the construction trades.
Extreme Sandbox will have a ten-acre site at The Station, which is under development through a partnership between PMB Capital Investments and the City of Sachse. The 134-acre site, located northeast of the President George Bush Turnpike and Merritt Road, will offer single- and multi-family homes; 400,000 square feet of commercial, office, restaurant, and retail space; and 36 acres of public parks and open space.
