Description:
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to operate an excavator or a bulldozer? Well, now you can at the first heavy equipment play area in the United States!

With the guidance of knowledgeable and experienced instructors, you will be successfully operating one of these powerful machines in less than 10 minutes through a course that will take you through a series of activities where you will move mountains, dig trenches, test your hand eye coordination by stacking rocks in a pyramid, and so much more.

Your adventure begins with a short safety lesson and equipment overview. Then, under the guidance of a professionally trained instructor, you will take the controls of a modern, climate controlled, CAT 315 Track Excavator or a CAT D5G Bulldozer.

You will be amazed not only at the incredible power of these machines, but also at how easy they are to operate. A simple movement of the joystick-style hand controls and you have just picked up a massive boulder or dug a four foot deep trench!

If you can't choose which machine to operate, try them both with the Mega Dig package. No experience or training is required for any activity, only the desire to have fun!

"Dig This met all our expectations. My husband had a great time driving the bulldozer and hasn't stopped talking about it since. He now wants to try driving the excavator. The operation at Dig This was very organized and efficient. They made the experience fun and fear-free. The safety overview & orientation was followed by a very comprehensive experience with operating the bulldozer. This was definitely a unique experience that made the perfect gift for the man who has everything."

"Perfect gift for anyone who had ever wanted to use big equipment. Close to the strip and there are no more than 6 people per experience- very personalized instruction. There is a place to sit, watch, and get amazing pictures for onlookers and the office is comfortable as well. My husband was thrilled from beginning to end and it's quite a long experience--but not so long that it gets old. The staff at Dig This are amazing and really love their work. I even bought the T-shirt. Great for couples, families, groups--everyone. Tips: Make sure your cabbie knows where to go. We had to call the office and have them give directions, which they did. Some cabbies tried to fleece the guests by driving them around and around for a larger fare because it's so close. Eat a hearty breakfast and be well rested. Bring sunglasses. Dress to be outside if you are a spectator. The Seating for the excavators is covers, not so for the other machines."
