Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Arrive at the Dig This headquarters in Las Vegas to begin this heavy machinery fantasy session. Select the 'Big Dig' to operate a bulldozer or excavator for one hour, or play with both on the 'Mega Dig' option. Choose between an air-conditioned Caterpillar D5G Track-Type Bulldozer or a Caterpillar 3I5CL Hydraulic Excavator.

In the bulldozer, build huge mounds, push gigantic tires and teeter-totter over a mega mound. With the excavator, dig gigantic trenches, stack 2,000 pound tires and play a game of 'Bucket Basketball.'

Begin with a safety briefing and some instruction from the expert staffers, then get outfitted for a neon yellow vest and hardhat. Also, each guest must take a breathalyzer test to ensure they can operate the equipment safely and responsibly.

Next, hop in the cab for some hands-on training so every button and lever makes perfect sense. Then it’s time to ride. Wheeling these machines around the desert might take some getting used to, so there will be a few warm-up exercises to get things going in the right direction — as in digging, trenching, pushing and dragging a haul around the lot.

Want to really test those heavy equipment skills? The instructors will guide guests through a game of ‘Excavator Basketball’ or ‘Bulldozer Teeter-Totter’ just for the fun of it. Also, feel free to tear, dig, rip, claw, grind and drive around as much as desired.

If you're short on time or want a "mini" experience, select from one of the following experiences:
• Mini Excavator Experience (60-minute experience) In the luxury of a climate controlled cab, enjoy the thrill of operating this fun sized, 5.5 ton digger. Dig deep, play excavator basketball and back fill with a blade and bucket.
• Skid Steer Track Loader Experience (60-minute experience) Enjoy moving tons of dirt, stacking tires over a pole and driving an obstacle course in these easy to operate little diggers

At the end of the session, receive an official certificate of completion and have a photo taken to commemorate the event. There’s also a retail store to take home a memento from the day’s activities.

So much fun!
, Nov 2021
It was so much fun learning to operate the excavator! We learned to dig big holes and move objects around with precise movements!
, Nov 2021
The spinning of the excavator was so much fun. Watching my husband do this was so entertaining. Would love to do this again with my boys.
Age doesn’t matter! Do Dig it!

A must do. Most awesome experience. Very empowering to take control of that piece of equipment and show it what your made of. No matter your age, you can do it.
Wonderful Activity
, Jul 2021
Just an all around awesome experience! I booked this for me, but my wife who, had no experience operating operating anything other than a car was able to navigate through all the activities thanks to the great team. We both will be suggesting this to all of our friends visiting Vegas!
Super fun!

Had a super fun time! I did the excavator and the instructor was very friendly and patient with me the whole time. Everyone was very fun to interact with and very friendly. The hour flew by and I learned quite a bit. Great unique experience.
Big Dig trip

It was a blast, very well run operation. The employees were excellent and equipment was awesome! Tiny was great!
Playing with heavy equipment is a reason to go to Las Vegas.

The experience was fantastic! The staff was helpful, the activity was beyond anything I expected. I had wanted to try something like this but was surprised how encompassing it was. It took my total attention to do it. I completely forgot about the rest of the world. The instructors are friendly and encouraging. The company owner was fun - very open about the business and his plans for the future. I will return.
Great fun!

Playing with the BIG toys had been on my bucket list for a long time. The hour and a half I spent playing on the excavator was fantastic!!!! Beyond my wildest dreams of fun. I dug a deep hole producing a nice mound of fresh soil, then I moved a stack of truck tires and re-stacked them into a birthday cake and finally I got to play basketball taking each ball off of a cone and dropping it in the tire hoop. I also got to spin the cab of the excavator round and round and do a wheelie. The instructor, Brian, was patient, clear and non intrusive.

Fantastic time. Great thing to do while in Vegas. Would be great for Corporate Team Building. We had a group of three twenty-somethings. Each had a great time. The hosts/ guides were terrific - each providing operating directions, maintaining interest and conversation throughout the session using headsets. A truly enjoyable experience. A tad expensive, but no regrets at all.
