What You Can Expect

Dig This: Heavy Equipment Playground

Serious Fun: Drive Your Own Excavator or Bulldozer

Meet at a giant sandbox in Las Vegas and receive a brief safety instruction and equipment orientation. You'll be given a hard hat, vest and 2-way radio before climbing aboard a real-life excavator or bulldozer for a unique and fun experience!

Via your radio headset, expert constructors will walk you through the levers and buttons, letting you maneuver these heavy-duty machines like a pro. Dig trenches, build mounds and move and stack 2,000-pound (909-kg) tires!

Play several fun, safe games like ‘Excavator Basketball,’ where you try to pick up a basketball off a cone and place it into your tire basket, or build your own ‘Bulldozer Teeter-Totter,’ where you’ll dig and move dirt into a mound and rock back and forth on top of it!

Choose between two packages: with the Big Dig Experience, maneuver either an excavator or a bulldozer. If you want the ultimate construction experience, choose the Mega Dig Experience and control both machines!

You’ll leave with a certificate of completion and, without a doubt, a smile on your face.

I had a wonderful time learning to use the excavator! I have wanted to experience using one of these machines for many, many years. I am a 71 year old former preschool teacher//director and the guys running this front office and the instructors were so very, very kind, polite and professional. I was impressed when speaking with two different guys on the phone before arriving, and even more so once I was on site. The office/training area were immaculate, and safety was of the utmost importance. I was treated with respect, friendliness, etc And the operation of the machine was such a great experience. I had a blast! I must say, it was a very intense activity - many more "commands" or manuevers than I had expected ! I kept forgetting one of the commands (right joy stick, away from you). My instructor never lost patience with me!! I dropped one basketball and ran out of time before picking up the third one - but I managed to get one safely picked up and deposited. All other activities I did very well with. It is something I would love to do again! Well worth my trip to Las Vegas and well worth the money!!! Also loved getting a certificate, buying a shirt and cap - and loved the very professionally done photo. Wonderful, wonderful experience! I have told many people (strangers/clerks in stores) about this many were interested in this activity. My son-in-law is in construction and operates every kind of heavy equipment. I better understand his fascination now. And one of my granddaughters (4 years old) LOVES construction equipment, like her Dad, but her favorite is the excavator! I will be visiting soon and will share my experience with her! My friends who watched this experience also had a great time! Thank you! Carolyn

This is a must do! Staff is friendly, knowledgable, and really good at what they do -- which is teach you how to run a bull sizer or excavator. My husband was grinning from ear to ear the entire time -- he became a kid again instantly -- and that smile stayed with him the entire day.
