Dig World! The Construction Theme Park Where Kids Can Learn on Real Equipment
Dig World is a construction theme park in Katy where kids can use real construction equipment! Excavators, skid steers, even UTVs. The kiddos get to dig and ride. There is even a gem mining station where you get to take home all of the gems you find. Dig World is an accessible theme park for kids of all abilities. The idea was inspired by Dig World founder, Jacob Robinson's son Pierce who uses a wheelchair and is speaking and hearing impaired. Pierce loves jumping on the diggers with his dad! Houston Life's Melanie Camp went along to check it out. See how much fun she had in the videos above. Visit Dig World at 5000 Katy Mills Blvd in Katy. Right next to Bass Pro Shops.
