If you’ve ever had the urge to get behind the controls of a bulldozer, Dig This Las Vegas has just what you need. After a safety class, an orientation, and some coaching, Dig This puts you behind the wheels of earth-moving heavy equipment.
Located just west of the Las Vegas Strip, Dig This is on the site of a former mini-golf course. Plans to develop the land fell through, leaving a dirt lot perfect for transforming into a giant sandbox.

Feeling that your inner construction worker needs an outlet? Dig This gives you the chance to live out your dirt-filled dreams in a big way.
Instructors are on hand to help you master digging and driving. A headset will keep you in touch with these pros, who will guide you through operating the dozer or excavator.
Dig This opened in Las Vegas in May 2011. It bills itself as the nation’s first attraction of its kind, and it's attracted attention from media outlets across the United States.
The most popular package is the three-hour "Big Dig" session with a bulldozer or excavator. Other packages include the “Dig and Destroy,” which lets you operate the big equipment and shoot guns (but not at the same time).
