Is your Mom an adrenaline junkie? Does she fantasize about jumping in construction equipment when she drives by a construction site? If so, People at Play: The Heavy Equipment Experience, the first of its kind construction playground in the Southeast United States, has the perfect Mother’s Day Gift… Called “One Tough Mother,” it sure beats the old standby gift of bottle of perfume or a restaurant gift card.

“One Tough Mother” is a memorable adventure “playing in the dirt” on either a huge, yellow hydraulic excavator or bulldozer at People at Play’s “job site” located in Sarasota/Bradenton on Florida’s beautiful Gulf Coast. The one-hour experience includes a safety and equipment orientation, machine time operating the excavator or bulldozer, a pink and white “Got Dirt?” t-shirt and a 5x7 family photo… taken in front of the machine and a pile of dirt, of course!!! “One Tough Mother” is priced at $269.00 + tax.

Gift certificates are available for the “One Tough Mother Package” and other, longer duration packages. Booking is available on select weekends, based on availability. Call for reservations and information.

People at Play is an experiential adventure program that allows participants to run heavy construction equipment such as excavators, skid steer loaders and bulldozers in a fun “construction site” environment. The entire experience is themed like a day on a construction site, where every participant has to “clock-in,” wear a hard hat and a visibility vest. All participants are required to successfully complete a safety and equipment training orientation (in the job site trailer) prior to their time operating CAT excavators, skid steer loaders and bulldozers. All participants must be aged 18 and over. Individuals must pre-register and book their packages based on scheduled “work” days. For reservations and information call (941) 756-0886.

People at Play (the name takes it’s cue from the universally recognized ‘Men at Work’ construction signs) was created as a spin-off business by Jason and Alisa Bennett, owners of a site development and underground utility construction firm – Bennett Contracting, Inc., which is located in Bradenton, Florida. People at Play: The Heavy Equipment Experience allows individuals to live out their childhood “sandbox” dreams by operating earthmoving equipment in a fun environment.
