New Zealander Ed Mumm got the idea for Dig This after using heavy equipment to clear land for a house he was building. He had such a good time using the equipment that he thought others might enjoy playing in the dirt, too. Mumm's first location was in Colorado, and in 2011 he relocated to Las Vegas. Dig This gives people the chance to operate a bulldozer or excavator in a dirt lot just off the Las Vegas Strip. The operators-for-a-day get a class on safety (including a breathalyzer test) and equipment orientation before getting into the dozers or excavators. After a little coaching, amateur operators get the chance to test out their newfound skills behind the controls of a very big piece of equipment. Scaled-down areas are available for kids, so everyone can play.
- Things to Do with Kids: "The Kids' Dig area is for children ages three and up, where the kids get to operate real earth separating equipment. If your little ones love digging in the dirt, you may never get them to leave!"
- Best for Things to Do with Kids Because: Everyone in the family can get in touch with their inner construction worker at Dig This, where guests can operate serious dirt-digging equipment.
