Heavy Metal Drive-Thru
Heavy Metal Drive Thru
Heavy Metal Drive Thru is an interactive construction exhibit that allows young and old to come watch heavy equipment at work! We offer 3 different versions of the show, each featuring real heavy equipment operating and doing a variety of activities. All shows are 1 hour in length.
*Heavy Metal Drive Thru – CLASSIC: 3 pieces of heavy equipment
*Heavy Metal Drive Thru – EXTREME: 5-6 pieces of heavy equipment
*Heavy Metal Drive Thru – EXTREME DEMOLITION: 5-6 pieces of heavy equipment plus crushing of 4-6 junk cars during the show.
While the Heavy Metal Drive-Thru Classic and Extreme shows are FREE to the public, we do ask that anyone planning to attend (even just the drive-thru) please “purchase” a ticket so we can plan for traffic accordingly. General Admission tickets for the Classic and Extreme shows are FREE and include the drive-thru portion as many times as you would like to loop through as well as the free parking areas behind the front row. One TICKET per VEHICLE. We strongly recommend purchasing front row RESERVED parking spot as they will have the best view of the activities (plus you will be supporting our 26-ton small business).
