Owner description: America's first and only heavy equipment playground where YOU'RE in control. Re-live your sandbox days of being a child but this time it's for real. Huge Caterpillar bulldozers and excavators await you in one of the most memorable experiences you will ever encounter.
Reviewed July 14, 2013

Booked an Excavator for a 2pm - 3:30pm session. It's one of the most fun things I've ever done in my life. To experience driving/controlling a 39,000 pound, heavy equipment machine is amazing. You can feel the power of the Excavator, the nimbleness of the digging bucket and the arm you control. Soooo much fun. The adrenaline rush is palpable.

This is like a video game, but the only difference is... you are IN the video game; all in the comfort of a climate controlled, air-conditioned cab on top of the Excavator.

Jack, our instructor/guide, was patient, knowledgeable, and genuine. You can tell when a person loves what they do, it really shows. The projects he gave us for the Excavator was fun: stacking giant tires, shooting basketballs, and digging a hole (to China). :-)

The staff at Dig This were very helpful. Their lobby is comfortable. The instruction room was complete with all the necessary equipment. Excellent customer service. They even call a taxi for you if you like.

My partner enjoyed the experience and found this good value. Wished they had some better shade for spectators as it was very very hot!

My friend and I gave our husbands a visit to Dig This as a fathers day gift. After much anticipation, the day to dig finally came! This was a fantastic experience from start to finish! The staff at Dig This- Shawn especially- only added to the whole adventure! Great value for your dollar and an experience you will never forget! This is a "Must Do" attraction in Vegas! We would highly recommend Dig This to anyone! Only recommendation we can make to the company is that they might consider giving headsets to the spectators - these guys were having way too much fun- would have been great entertainment to hear all the commentary!

I travelled to Las Vegas with four mates to celebrate a significant birthday. We decided to give dig this ago as we were all keen to drive a bulldozer and excavator. I emailed them from Australia to organize this and they were very professional and answered all my questions on a timely basis. They were keen to offer suggestions to enhance our experience.

This experience was one of the highlights of our trip and one that I am sure we will talk about for a long time to come. It was great fun and three of us got to drive excavators and one drove a bulldozer, even the guys that were not so keen to do this loved it and haven't stopped raving about it since. If you are a big kid at heart I would highly recommend doing this whilst in Vegas.

On a visit to Las Vegas in May, 2013, my teen son had a great experience at Dig This! The staff was on time, very professional in their instruction, and made sure he had a safe and fantastic time digging with a very large excavator. We highly recommend this experience.
