What You'll Get

Playing on heavy machinery is one of childhood's many taboos, along with sleeping in discarded refrigerators. Bend the rules for your inner child with today's Groupon: for $149, you get a Big Dig at Dig This Heavy Equipment Playground (a $400 value).

Dig This Heavy Equipment Playground is one of America's only heavy-equipment playgrounds, allowing average citizens to pilot enormous Caterpillar construction equipment. Situate yourself behind the controls of a 315 Excavator or a D5G Bull Dozer for a Big Dig—three hours of annihilation in a sandbox for grownups. The dig begins with a 15-minute instruction on cab controls and communication techniques, after which machinists can stretch their motorized muscles by moving boulders, stacking tires, digging holes, and performing heavy-equipment jam band sessions. Cabs are air conditioned, allowing for comfortable construction experiences any time of the year. Invite along family, friends, or a surly renovation contractor to gawk and take pictures from the nearby viewing area. Participants must be 18 or older and must wear long pants and closed-toed shoes.

While Dig This offers its own discounts on Big Dig experiences, today's Groupon has the better value.

About 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.
