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 Vegas was great! I went with a friend who was only going to spectate and they allowed her to sit in an excavator near me for a better view. (We were there on a slow day.) All of the staff was very friendly and welcoming, and operating the excavator was fun. I will return for the bulldozer, too! "
"Bought this as a surprise gift for my husband. He had a blast. The only thing he said he would change is he wanted to play ALL day. "
"One of the best-run, most fun experiences I have had. The entire process from booking through the actual event was smooth, and everyone was friendly and helpful. Highly recommend Cloud 9 Living and the Dig This experience in Las Vegas."
