LAS VEGAS, NV: Dig This, America’s first heavy equipment playground, has added two skid steer track loaders and two 5.5 ton excavators to its existing full-size heavy equipment lineup of D5G bulldozers and 315C excavators. Mini experience sessions are an hour long with a minimum age requirement of eight years old to operate the equipment.
“We are thrilled to introduce our new Mini Experiences.
They compliment our popular full-size equipment offerings quite nicely and provide a more affordable option to those who want to feel the rush of operating earth moving equipment,” said Ed Mumm, Dig This’ Owner and Founder. “They’re ideal for our repeat guests who want to try something new, folks with an activity-packed day, and with a minimum operating age of eight years, now the entire family can make the earth move at Dig This!”
All Dig This sessions start with an equipment and safety orientation before participants get behind the controls in climate-controlled, wireless radio equipped cabs and maneuver equipment in individual work areas. Skid steer operators move tons of dirt, stack tires, and negotiate through an obstacle course. Mini excavator operators dig deep, play bucket basketball, and then back fill with the blade and bucket.
Mini Experiences are priced at $169.00 for the skid steer track loader and $189.00 for the excavator. Five, hour-long sessions are available daily, seven days a week.
Dig This is open daily year-round, providing the new Mini Experience (60 minutes), Big Digs (90 minutes), Mega Digs (2 full Big Digs) and Group Dig activities. Full-size equipment participants must be at least 14 years of age. Big Dig session pricing begins at $249.00. Dig This is conveniently located just minutes from The Strip. Dig This also offers specialty packages and corporate programming including: Dig & Destroy in conjunction with Machine Guns Vegas; Executive Retreat and Development; Competitive Edge Team Building; and Incentive Trips. Private and special event bookings are also welcome.
Ed Mumm pioneered the “super-sized sandbox” concept for Dig This in Steamboat Springs, Colorado in 2007. America’s first heavy equipment playground provides the opportunity for the general public to command the controls of heavy equipment in a safe, fun and supervised environment. Dig This launched operations in Las Vegas, Nevada, in May 2011, bringing the latest in recreational and corporate entertainment by allowing non-industry folks the chance to experience the thrill and rush of playing with massive hydraulic excavators and bulldozers. Structured courses, including corporate and custom programming guarantee 20 tons of fun. Dig This is a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence Award Winner 2012-2015 and a 2013 TripAdvisor Travelers’ Choice Award winner.
