$119 for 90-Minute Bulldozer or Excavator Big Dig ($249 Value)

After donning safety gear and completing an in-cab orientation, patrons take the controls of a bulldozer or excavator for Big Digs. Guests start with some warm-up activities, then get free reign of an outdoor sandbox. There they can flip tires, dig trenches, pile dirt into mounds, or try out Excavator Basketball. Patrons must be at least 14 years old to board and operate the machinery, and those under 18 must have parental consent. Dig This no longer offers shuttle services to their location.

Dig This

Described as “Bob the Builder on steroids” by The Los Angeles Times, Dig This reconstructs childhood play for adults letting them climb aboard excavators and bulldozers for digs inside a giant natural sandbox. Employees outfit grown-ups with the knowledge and safety gear necessary to get behind the wheel before explaining all the levers and buttons of the control panel. Patrons are then left alone inside climate-controlled cabs, connected to their instructors via headsets in case they need additional guidance. Patrons steer mechanical mammoths around the play yard, excavating trenches and toppling huge tires. Once they've mastered easy moves, they graduate to games such as Bulldozer Teeter-Totter and Excavator Basketball. After playtime, operators are awarded a certificate to commemorate their accomplishments and can cool off under a shower of their own joyful tears.


Reviews

All the staff were friendly and helpful. You get a brief safety presentation and then they take you into the field.

great instructor and not only did he supervise the bulldozing but seemed to get as much of a kick out of what my husband was doing as my husband.
