Health & Safety
Dig World Machine Safety:
Safety at Dig World is our number 1 priority. Without safety protocols, Dig World wouldn’t exist! While customers will get the opportunity to operate REAL Caterpillar machinery, we have worked with mechanics to modify the capabilities of each machine to ensure everyone’s safety. We require seatbelts to be engaged before any machine operation can occur. The speeds on drivable machines have been governed, and other equipment utilizes hydraulic limitations to reduce total movement.
At this time, we do not require face masks to be worn inside the park, per guidelines from the state of Texas. You will find hand sanitizing stations readily-available around Dig World. We ask everyone to socially distance themselves while inside Dig World. We ask if you feel sick that you refrain from visiting the park.
