Live out your youthful fantasies of working some heavy duty construction equipment without starting a second career. Hocking Hills Sandbox, a new tourist attraction in SE Ohio, allows visitors to operate track loaders, a bulldozer and excavators. You can also ride 60 feet up in a cherry picker to survey the entire 15 acre construction site. Don’t feel like getting your hands dirty? It might make the perfect trip for your kids or grandkids. There are only six opportunities of this caliber in the U.S., and now one of them is near enough to try for yourself. There’s even an on-site gift shop so kids (and adults) can take home miniatures of the equipment. Pricing varies based on the package selected, but most experiences start at $100. 16412 Thompson Ridge Rd., Laurelville.

For more information, call 1-800-462-5464 or visit explorehockinghills.com.
