Dig World closes due to machine capacity, will hold a re-grand opening

Posted

Dig World, the new construction-themed adventure park that opened last week at Katy Mills Mall, announced it will close and have a re-grand opening due to machine capacity.

The company made the announcement in a social media post.

“We strive to provide the absolute best guest experience, and right now we aren’t able to do that,” the statement read in part. “And we own that! We apologize, but Dig World will come back better than ever.”

The park opened late last week and guests of all ages appeared to enjoy operating the excavating equipment and exploring the park’s offerings.

Dig World is unique in that guests can operate such equipment. Park patrons must be of a certain height to use the equipment. Most equipment requires the operator to be at least 3½ feet (or 42 inches) tall.

There was no immediate word when the re-grand opening would happen. The company said guests who pre-purchased tickets will receive an email with instructions for rescheduling their visit.

The park is on the north side of the shopping mall and east of the Bass Pro Shops in the mall. It celebrated its groundbreaking Nov. 19.

The company partnered with Mustang Cat for the excavation equipment. Mustang Cat is a Houston-based construction supply company. It has a retail outlet on the Katy Freeway.

The company intends for the park to be a site for parties and corporate events. Towards that end, a pavilion is being built and outdoor games will be available for patrons to enjoy.

The company partnered with the Texas A&M University Department of Construction Science for educational materials.

Box T Construction built the park and Trivium Advisors developed the park.
