Heavy Metal Drive Thru
June 5 @ 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM CDTFree
Heavy Metal Drive-Thru is an interactive construction exhibit that allows young and old to come watch heavy equipment at work! Our standard show features 3-4 pieces of heavy equipment operating and doing a variety of different tasks.
While the event is FREE to the public, they do ask that anyone planning to attend (even just the drive-thru) please “purchase” a ticket so they can plan for traffic accordingly. General Admission tickets 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. They strongly recommend purchasing front row RESERVED parking spot as they will have the best view of the activities.
1) Attendees must be in vehicles only (1 ticket per vehicle) – please no pedestrians, motorcycles, or bicyclists.
2) Attendees MUST remain in their vehicles at all times (all activity will STOP on site if they see anyone outside of their vehicle – don’t be that party pooper). Please keep proper spacing between vehicles.
3) If ANY part of your vehicle is open we REQUIRE all occupants (>2 years old) to be wearing a face mask. This includes: sitting in the bed of a pick-up truck, popping out of a sun roof, or opening the vehicle’s rear door. If you do not have face masks or choose not to wear them, you MUST remain in your vehicle with all windows and doors closed.
4) Reserved spots are available ONLINE ONLY and will have an assigned number that corresponds to a parking spot. You are able to check this page real-time and purchase any spots that still show as available, but do not take any reserved spots if you do not have a confirmed ticket.
