New Katy amusement park will let kids operate construction equipment (Dig World)

HOUSTON – Dig World has delayed its opening weekend, the company announced Friday morning just ahead of its planned grand opening weekend.

In an emailed statement, this is what the adventure park had to say:


“Friends, we had a great day at the park today! However, we learned a lot. One of our items to get right is to have more machines operating due to long lines and long wait times. We strive for greatness, and that includes operating a fully-functional, awesome experience.

“The machines we have now cannot handle our capacity. We were optimistic that the machines we had would prove to be enough, but the wait times were too long and we cannot be satisfied with that. We want to operate a park that is flawless in every way and that is what we will work towards.

“Please say tuned for more announcements to come in the next few days. If you had pre-purchased tickets for this weekend online, you will receive another email from us on how to reschedule your tickets. We hate that we will not see you this weekend, but we can’t wait to see you soon!!”

The construction-themed adventure park had opened on March 17 at 5000 Katy Mills Circle, Suite 455. Dig World is a 3.5-acre establishment that offers the young and old the opportunity to man powerful earth movers, including excavators and skid steers.
