Dig This
Kids play with toy bulldozers and excavators in a sandbox. At Dig This, in Las Vegas, Nevada, adults get to spend a half- or a full-day using real bulldozers and excavators building roads, digging ditches and moving rocks, in the only heavy equipment arena in the United States.

I must admit that I felt powerful driving a CAT312 Track Excavator and moving one-ton rocks. Playing in this gigantic sandbox we were creating our own carnival rides. My chance to play in this adult theme park came in Steamboat, the original home of Dig This.

Since then, Dig This has moved to Las Vegas. Want to bet your friends who can build a road or dig a deep hole faster? Read on to see how easy it is to learn to drive these machines (in a controlled environment) and much fun you have.
