Spread in four different locations, this is where you can see a caterpillar or a bobcat moving over the grass or dirt while driving. A unique adventure awaits you here via its 19 varied kid-welcoming rides. Believe it or not, all the rides here are built using the actual construction machines like cranes, diggers, and dump trucks. Further, what further add to your excitement are the dancing machines.
