  • 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.

  • Fremont Street Experience
    Las Vegas is known for its lights, but instead of neon bulbs advertising casinos, the Viva Vision show gathers crowds for daily light performances set to music. A 1,500-foot-long, 90-foot-wide screen suspended 90 feet above the pedestrian mall flashes 12.5 million energy-efficient LED lamps as tunes from Bon Jovi, the Who, and others play.

  • Keepers of The Wild
    Keepers of the Wild founder Jonathan Kraft has always loved animals. As a child in Holland, he rehabilitated and released injured birds every winter. When he became a magician performing grand spectacles in Vegas, his affinity for animals led him to raise two baby tigers to integrate into his act, then eventually acquire and train more big cats. At first Kraft didn?t see the connection between his chosen career and the prevalence of animal mistreatment, but gradually he began to realize how cramped, stressed, and unhealthy his peers? animals tended to be. His first steps toward rescue weren?t ideal?he didn?t have the space to give each animal the sprawling habitat it craved. So the next step was Keepers of the Wild a place designed to rescue exotic creatures from inhumane conditions and let them roam both safely and freely. The center, located on historic route 66, now hosts more than 175 animals that include lions, tigers, leopards, and monkeys. Walking and hiking trails lead to enclosures where cougars lie in the sun or wolves trot between bushes. Plenty of lookouts offer photo ops or a chance to spy on capuchin monkeys? poker games. Visitors can explore the grounds on their own or hop on a guided tour, where they?re shuttled to various habitats and can watch the predators feed.
