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.
What a great experience -- I'm 7i4 and this was a lifelong dream come true!!
Really enjoyed it, got to dig a really big hole, move tyres around and pick up basketballs.Would definitely do it again.
Operating one of these huge excavators was a dream come true. My husband gave me this experience for my 60th birthday! Instructor was fantastic and good humored. Would recommend this for everyone.
I bought this as a surpise present for my partner, he absolutely loved it, I would recomend it for anyone. There was also a couple doing it who where in their seventies who both loved it. Good instructors who made it very interesting and fun, each person can go at their own pace and do what they feel comfortable with
Sometimes you just need to do what you need to do. It was awesome and more challenging than I imagined. An over all great experience.
My wife was a heavy equipment operator for seven years, but that was 30 years ago. She always had a favorite with cranes but operated literally everything else. Finishing her job of 23 years as a private chef and estate manager in LA, she is unsure of what to do next. This gave her a great way to recheck her perspective as HEO in the future. First she was really surprised by the present. Secondly the instructor quickly realized she had skills- I think she had to fight muscle memory from older machines! Third she came off with a monster smile and said she would really have to think about going back professionally after a break. Where else could you get such an opportunity? I had one of many pediatric conferences in Vegas and she has several very good friends, plus our middle son's in-laws are also residents. We will likely be back as a treat for a birthday or anniversary. What a blast to watch her have so much pleasure.
The greatest experience ever! I didn’t think I could operate an excavator and I did. The team there is fantastic in teaching you to operate the heavy equipment and then allowing you to play on the big kids playground.This is a fantastic memorable experience while in Vegas!
I was so scared to participate but once I got in the excavator all my fears went away. At the end I did not want to get out. Playing basketball was my favorite part. I got 3 for 3 ! The guides that walk you through all the moves are so helpful. They explain every move like they were sitting with you in the cab. If you have ever asked yourself how those big machines works this tour is for you. A must do when in Vegas.
So much fun! I drove both an excavator and bulldozer - both were a blast! Would recommend this to anyone..
