ConExpo-Con/Agg attendees can give their family and friends a taste of the construction and aggregate industries outside of the show by taking a trip to Dig This Las Vegas, a heavy equipment playground located at 3012 S. Rancho Drive in Las Vegas.

The park is a “super-sized sandbox” that provides the general public with the opportunity to control heavy equipment in a safe, fun and supervised environment, according to the company’s website. Dig This Las Vegas is open daily and invites guests to test their operational skills on Caterpillar D5G tracked dozers, Caterpillar 315CL hydraulic excavators, Caterpillar 279D skid steer track loaders and Caterpillar 305.5E CR mini excavators.

All sessions start with an equipment and safety orientation before participants get behind the cabs. Participants must be at least 14 years or older to operate big equipment, and 8 years or older to operate skid steer loaders and mini excavators.
