Big Dig Backhoe Loader

Big Dig Backhoe Loader

Woody and Tonka are the reigning Backhoe Loader Duo, and they have it all! They are a tractor, excavator, and loader, an all-in-one powerhouse package! You’ll dig yourself into a big hole with the excavator, backfill with the loader, and then finish up carefully stacking tires into a pyramid. It’s an adrenaline packed experience not to miss!

How It Works

  • Driving heavy machinery is easier than you think! You’ll learn to operate the two joystick controls and follow your instructor’s guidance. You don’t even need a driver’s license!
  • Your activity includes a brief safety class, expert instruction, graduation ceremony, and an hour of operating time.
  • You’re connected via wireless headset with your instructor during operation, who will guide you through your Dig. For 2-3 people, you’ll experience a side-by-side experience with wireless headset communication together.

Frequently Asked Questions

Nope, no driving experience is required!
Absolutely! Our machines are fully climate-controlled, so no matter what the Vegas weather is doing, you’ll stay comfortably cool in the summer months.
Yes! Of course! We have two dedicated areas for spectators to watch and take photos. Bring your sisters, cousins, uncles, and best friend if you’d like! The more the merrier! Plus, you need someone to vouch for you that you actually operated heavy equipment while in Las Vegas!
No. Only one person per Big Dig. We have really cool tasks for you to perform, and once you’re on the machine, you won’t want to share anymore!
