At Big Dig! you can get behind the controls of the Giant Earthmovers that you played with as a kid…the ones that you marvel at as you drive past a construction site…the ones that make your chest rumble when they power up! At the Big Dig! Adventure you can operate an excavator or a bull dozer by yourself on our 10 acre playground. If you are bored with golf, sunburned from the pool, and tired of paying the one armed bandits, get away for a few hours and make a childhood dream come true in our enormous, climate controlled Earthmoving Machines.

My husband had a gift card, here is what he says: This was a tremendously fun thing to do for a couple of hours while in Vegas (or anywhere). Walt, the business operator, is simply the best: he's very good natured, very informative, very experienced,...More

Two of us went here yesterday for a Christmas present. We rove the bulldozers, just awesome - dug ourselves deep onto the ground, completed a slalom pushing heavy tyres around (I won lol!) - and then had to repair the damage we'd made! Although you're...More

Great fun learning a new skill of driving a bull dozer. One more thing to cross off the bucket list. Walt and Mark were great instructors. The owner who is not from Australia was a kick in the pants.
