Dig This Theme Park
A new kind of theme park for adults is right off the Las Vegas Strip. After going through a 30-minute training and orientation session, guests can spend hours digging trenches up to 10 feet deep or building large earthen mounds. There are also skill tests, like moving 2,000-pound tires or carefully plucking basketballs from their resting place on top of safety cones.
The five-acre theme park, which cost about $1 million to build, has ten employees, a large office building, a gift shop, and more. Among the machinery that Dig This has on site are a pair of Caterpillar D5 track-type bulldozers and three Caterpillar 315CL hydraulic excavators.
