Something like this wasn't even on my bucket list because I didn't think something like this was possible. It was a blast. Our instructor Junior was the best, he made sure we had the best experience during our visit. I have a lot more respect for all the equipment operators out there now.

If you've even wanted to operate a piece of heavy equipment, then go here! This has been on my bucket list for a long time, I'm so glad I did it. 90 minutes for $255 (includes tax) is expensive, but if you're on vacation, then why not? If you go to Vegas to try it, Dre, the bulldozer instructor will... More

I have always wanted to operate an excavator, so when I heard about Dig This--I couldn't wait to try it! The experience turned out to be SO MUCH MORE than I expected. The knowledgable and engaging staff are second to none. They not only teach you the safety basics, but my coach actually spent time instructing me for technique and... More

Phew, must be the best fun experience with your clothes on + a high vis vest. The instructor, Junior, took our group, after a crew and safety briefing, to the machines, in my case a bulldozer. Had to come to grips and to know my 'new best friend' the decelerator! In the 'sandpit' after some familiarising runs up and down... More

In a simple and engaging way the staff introduce you to their mechanical pets and get you using them - and they are as much fun as they look. I'm sure driving one professionally becomes routine but as a one off thing it is just really pretty joyous. Staff are friendly and helpful and the whole thing is very professionally... More

Went a few weeks ago - had the opportunity to operate one of the 'Cat' bucket cranes. You're introduced to your instructor (ours was Junior) - after a brief orientation and safety discussion you get a colorful vest to wear and head out to the dirt lot (sandbox). You go to your vehicle (bull dozer, bucket crane, etc.) - put... More

I can state without the slightest hesitation that every claim made on the website of Dig This Las Vegas is absolutely true! From the moment we were picked up at our hotel until we left, this was an exceptional experience. My wife and I both did the excavator – an absolute blast! Our instructor, Junior, was great. We started with... More

I'm an executive in a non-profit organization. Not involved in construction at all. I've always mentioned to my wife as we passed a construction site how "fun" it would be to operate large machinery. She saw Dig This in an article and surprised me with this experience. I spent an hour playing with an excavator and had a blast. They... More

I surprised my fiancee with an afternoon of operating excavators, and when we pulled up, she's was like, "Uhhhh...." Precisely why I didn't tell her beforehand! However, when we left, you couldn't wipe the smile off her face. She said it was probably the most incredible think she's ever done, and I know it pumped up her self-confidence, too! It... More
