Frequently Asked Questions
Where is Dig This located?
Dig This is located at 800 W. Roban Ave. Las Vegas NV 89044. We are a quick 10-15 minute ride from any Strip hotel. We have ample parking if you’d like to drive, and we are also accessible via Uber, Lyft, Cab or private transportation.
Is your equipment air conditioned?
Absolutely! All of our machines are fully climate controlled so no matter what the Vegas weather is doing, you’ll stay comfortably cool in the summer and warm in the colder months.
What do I wear? Will I get dirty?
Closed-toed shoes are the only clothing requirement we have. Feel free to wear whatever is comfortable. You might get a little dust on your shoes… but unless you want to lie down and roll in the dirt, you’ll leave squeaky clean.
What are your cancellation and refund policies?
Full payment is due at the time of booking for all Dig This reservations.
Dig This strictly enforces a 24-hour cancellation policy. Your reservation is refundable up to 50% if you cancel 24 hours in advance of your reservation. Cancellations within 24 hours of your reservation are non-refundable.
In the event of a cancellation of your reservation by Dig This due to weather, equipment problems, or any other unforeseen circumstances, your reservation will be refunded in full or you will be offered a credit toward a future reservation.

The instructors guide you through the Dig. Big Digs are $269.
Is this construction training?
No, this is just plain FUN!
Can I have my friends and family come and watch?
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!
What's with the breathalyzer?
Well, this is Vegas after all. Safety is our number one priority and concern. So save the celebration for after Dig This! You must be able to pass the breathalyzer in order to operate your machine.
I have a coupon or discount code. How do I book?
You can book online using your discount code, or over the phone by calling 702-222-4344.
Can we split the time for a Big Dig?
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!
Can I have someone ride in the cab with me?
No. For safety reasons, all machines are for one person. This includes no kids in the cab with adults. There is only one seat! The only exception to this is on the 1-Ton Excavators. Guardians are able to assist their kids if they are under 48” tall.
Do I need a driver's license?
Nope, no driving experience needed.

- 1-Ton Excavators: 5+ years can operate independently if they are 48” or taller
What if I don't speak or understand English?
All instruction is given in English. However, we are more than happy to allow an interpreter out into the field to assist with the dig experience. Feel free to email or call us to make arrangements. Please note, we do not provide interpreters – you would need to make those arrangements.
Can I operate if I have a disability?
Dig This can provide an experience for most disabilities, how -ever you must have good vision and have good use of your upper body. If you are deaf or hard of hearing we ask you provide someone who can help our instructors facilitate through sign language. Please call us before you book so we can discuss and better understand the disability so we can better prepare and recommend appropriate equipment to operate.
