Bulldozers. Excavators. Wheel Loaders. At Extreme Sandbox, we see adults live out their wildest childhood dreams by letting them play with construction equipment on our 10-acre "sandbox." We did $800k+ in sales in 2017 because there's no other place where a person can drive a bulldozer, crush a car, and then finish off with a ride in our fire truck. Perfect for young and old, men and women, individuals and corporate groups, we've grown to 3 locations and want to keep expanding nationally.

Why you may want to invest
  1. Appeared on Shark Tank in 2016.

  2. Two locations drove $750k in 2017 revenue, with a new mall location opened at the end of the year.

  3. TripAdvisor loves us: Over 98% of our 600 total reviews are 5 stars.

  4. We have three locations -- outdoor sites in Hastings, Minnesota and just north of Dallas, Texas -- plus an Extreme Sandbox Mini location inside Rosedale Mall in Roseville, Minnesota.

  5. Our reservation-only experience has a price range that spans from $195 for initial individual package to a $900 all-day package.

  6. Official equipment sponsorship with Komatsu America.

  7. In October 2017, we launched “Inside the Sandbox,” a VLOG on our YouTube channel that now has 85 episodes.

  8. Corporate team building events are an increased revenue driver.  Over 45% of 2017 revenue was generated from group events.

Our Ambition

After starting with one location in Hastings, Minnesota, we've added another outdoor venue just north of Dallas and an indoor Extreme Sandbox Mini in Roseville, Minn. Buoyed by a successful 2016 Shark Tank appearance and a hard 5-star rating on Trip Advisor, we feel poised to expand into more cities and more states, until eventually, Extreme Sandbox is popular enough that every American can cross "play with a bulldozer" of their bucket lists.
