A new attraction called Dig This opened in Las Vegas, and it claims to be the first heavy-equipment playground.
Before riding, participants attend a safety and equipment orientation. The park is also staffed with instructors like Phil Chavez, a former construction worker. Chavez can communicate with riders over a wireless headset, and if necessary, he has a kill switch in case a machine gets out of control.
Dig This charges between $200 and $750. That seems to be the going rate to do most anything in Vegas--from headliner shows to gambling to high-end dinners.
