Dig This, Las Vegas

4.8
If you have ever wished you could safely and legally play on the giant machines you see at construction sites, Dig This is the heavy equipment playground that finally gives you this opportunity. Pick between operating a bulldozer or excavator, and then get oriented to your new machine. Once you complete training and a few activities with the guidance of an instructor, you get the chance to drive and dig on your own during the free time portion of your adventure. As long as you are 14 years old or older, you can book a digging session and turn this site into your playground.

  • When we decided to come here. I wasn’t sure what to expect. I figured the machinery would be extremely difficult and rough to operate. I was pleasantly surprised. These amazing pieces of machinery are...  more »

  • I made a reservation for the Big Dig Excavator option to surprise my husband for his birthday! Since we've been married I had often heard him express a strong desire to play on one. It was hard for me to keep it a secret for the month leading up to his birthday, I was so excited. On the day of his birthday we drove up with him still having no idea. As he saw the construction equipment and started putting two and two together his face lit up so bright and he just kept saying "This is my dream!" "I've always wanted to do this!!!" The experience did not disappoint!!! He had one on one instruction with Junior, who was super nice and confident. I had a great time watching and laughing as I saw the fun things my husband got to do with the giant excavator. He caught on quickly and said he really enjoyed talking with Jr while he dug his huge hole and played with the tires and basketballs. I also got to meet the owner, Ed, and chat with him while my husband was out there. He was a fantastic, down-to-earth guy who jokes around and is really friendly to visit with. Overall awesome company! I enthusiastically recommend you do this experience, my husband will be talking about it for months to come. He keeps telling me he wants to change his profession now to be able to operate an excavator every day haha.
  • So much fun! Our group of 30 people had a unique and exciting experience! Michael Printy was a pure joy to work with to plan our outing. Their staff were both, fun and professional. We had such a diverse group and everyone loved it!
  • This place was great! Tom was our instructor. He was funny and welcoming. It's not as hard to get the hang of this as you would think. I highly suggest signing up. My wife and I both drove an excavator. PS - There is a breathalyzer. They warn you ahead of time but a guy in our 10am class failed after a night of drinking. No refunds if you fail!
  • This by far was one of my highlights in vegas! They have a great course set up so you get to do all the functions. It was really fun!!!!! And they like everywhere in vegas try to sell you a picture at the end. But here they put it on a plaque it is really cool and different from just a picture!
  • Overall it was an amazing experience. Only feedback would be for the guys to allow a bit more freedom to use some of the gear.
