What You Can Expect

Dig This: Heavy Equipment Playground

Serious Fun: Drive Your Own Excavator or Bulldozer

Arrive at the Dig This headquarters in Las Vegas to begin this heavy machinery fantasy session. Select the 'Big Dig' to operate a bulldozer or excavator for one hour, or play with both on the 'Mega Dig' option. Choose between an air-conditioned Caterpillar D5G Track-Type Bulldozer or a Caterpillar 3I5CL Hydraulic Excavator.

In the bulldozer, build huge mounds, push gigantic tires and teeter-totter over a mega mound. With the excavator, dig gigantic trenches, stack 2,000 pound tires and play a game of 'Bucket Basketball.'

Begin with a safety briefing and some instruction from the expert staffers, then get outfitted for a neon yellow vest and hardhat. Also, each guest must take a breathalyzer test to ensure they can operate the equipment safely and responsibly.

Next, hop in the cab for some hands-on training so every button and lever makes perfect sense. Then it’s time to ride. Wheeling these machines around the desert might take some getting used to, so there will be a few warm-up exercises to get things going in the right direction — as in digging, trenching, pushing and dragging a haul around the lot.

Want to really test those heavy equipment skills? The instructors will guide guests through a game of ‘Excavator Basketball’ or ‘Bulldozer Teeter-Totter’ just for the fun of it. Also, feel free to tear, dig, rip, claw, grind and drive around as much as desired.
If you're short on time or want a "mini" experience, select from one of the following experiences:
    • Mini Excavator Experience (60-minute experience) In the luxury of a climate controlled cab, enjoy the thrill of operating this fun sized, 5.5 ton digger. Dig deep, play excavator basketball and back fill with a blade and bucket.
    • Skid Steer Track Loader Experience (60-minute experience) Enjoy moving tons of dirt, stacking tires over a pole and driving an obstacle course in these easy to operate little diggers

At the end of the session, receive an official certificate of completion and have a photo taken to commemorate the event. There’s also a retail store to take home a memento from the day’s activities.

Fantastic time. Great thing to do while in Vegas. Would be great for Corporate Team Building. We had a group of three twenty-somethings. Each had a great time. The hosts/ guides were terrific - each providing operating directions, maintaining interest and conversation throughout the session using headsets. A truly enjoyable experience. A tad expensive, but no regrets at all.

Dig This: did an excellent job from the time we walked in the door till the very end. This is an experience you do not want to miss.
They made the experience great for not only the participant but the observes and young family children.
We will be back for more, for sure.

Fantastic experience!! It was a gift from my husband and family for our 49th wedding anniversary. The Dig This: Heavy Equipment Playground is a top notch organization. The staff was amazing and helped guide me through handling the BIG machine. I recommend it to anyone that has ever wanted to drive a earthmover.

This was absolutely amazing, best new fun place in the city. You walk away with a giant smile. Skip the tables for a few hours, go to Dig This you will not regret it. If you ever wondered what it was like to run a piece of heavy equipment go to Dig This. You will be amazed how good you are in a few short minutes and you get to dig a hole, fill it in, move stuff around, you will not be disappointed.

Bought this as a birthday present for my husband. He was SO excited when I told him what he was doing. Greeted upon arrival by a friendly staff. Safety review and off they went to the machines. The instructors were out in the field with them the entire time. Everyone had headsets to communicate. He had so much fun moving dirt and tires ...digging holes. Graduation certificate at the end. There was a place for me to go out to the field so I could watch and video. The smile on his face said it all. Highly recommend !!! They also called a cab for us when finished to run us back to our hotel on the strip.
