About Dig This®, LLC:
Dig This®, the nation’s first-and-only recreational heavy equipment playground was founded by New Zealander Ed Mumm in Steamboat Springs, Colorado in 2007. Dig This’ inspiration came to Ed, while he was operating heavy equipment to construct his home in Steamboat Springs. After having fun clearing trees and scrub oak, constructing a road, building a pond, and digging foundations, he realized the potential for a business opportunity and the concept for Dig This was formed. Ed pioneered the “super-sized sandbox” concept providing the opportunity for the general public to command the controls of heavy equipment in a safe, fun, supervised environment. In May 2011, Dig This brings the latest in recreational and corporate entertainment to the Las Vegas market allowing non-industry folks the chance to experience the thrill and rush of playing with massive, full-size Caterpillar hydraulic excavators and track-type tractors, also known as bulldozers. Structured courses, including corporate and custom programming, guarantee 20 tons of fun! www.digthisvegas.com.
