Houston, Texas – Dig World The first and only all-ages construction-themed adventure park in Texas is set to open in Katy in a few months. The park will allow children and adults to operate real, heavy construction equipment safely throughout the year. Depending on their height, children may operate machines independently or in conjunction with an adult.

The 3.5-acre site, which is adjacent to Katy Mills Mall, is expected to attract over 100,000 visitors in its first year, entertaining them with a variety of once-in-a-lifetime, hands-on experiences. These will include the opportunity to operate excavators, skid steers, and all-terrain vehicles (UTVs), among others.

โ€œAt Katy Mills, we are committed to growth, evolution, and addressing community needs,โ€ said Lisa Connolly, Katy Mills Director of Marketing and Business Development. โ€œDig World will undoubtedly complement Katy Mills’ family-friendly offerings, providing a fun space for families to spend time together during their visit.โ€

Founders Jacob Robinson and Rick Bennett are enthusiastic about expanding Houston’s recreational and educational opportunities.

โ€œWe want to create lifelong memories for families while also educating the next generation about construction and all of the opportunities that exist in that industry,” Robinson explained.

Dig World will be able to host a variety of events, including field trips, community events, birthday parties, and corporate outings. Along with construction equipment, the park will feature a playground, a gem mining station, a turf field with yard games, and a variety of other attractions.

Dig World’s partnership with Mustang Cat will ensure the park’s equipment is of the highest quality.

โ€œWe are excited to partner with Dig World to demonstrate our heavy equipment in a hands-on environment for the entire family,โ€ Mustang Cat President & COO Sam Tucker said.

Additionally, Dig World has formed an educational partnership with the Texas A&M University Department of Construction Science, which will contribute to the park’s educational materials.

โ€œThe Department of Construction Science is pleased to partner with Dig World to establish an educational partnership that will allow future generations to experience and learn about the dynamic construction industry,โ€ said Dr. Patrick Suermann, Professor and Department Head.

Dig World plans to expand its operations across the country over the next 24 months.
Box T Construction will construct the park, which will be developed by Trivium Advisors.
