Caterpillar excavators and bulldozers rumble across Dig This’s excavation playground, a hands-on, recreational construction site described by the Los Angeles Times as “Bob the Builder on steroids.” The Mini-Dig Experience begins with a comprehensive safety and controls course handled by an experienced instructor. As an instructor relays instructions through a two-way headset, operators test their lever dexterity, stacking giant tires and gently plucking basketballs from the top of cones. Private Twilight Group Sessions begin at 3:30 p.m. and run until 5 p.m. Groups of up to 10 pair off to take control of the five machines, while spectators cheer on their excavating efforts from a safe viewing area. Riders must be at least 14 years old, stand 48 inches tall, and be able to reach all the levers, controls, and ejection-seat buttons.

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.
