Dig This provides guests a unique experience of piloting million dollar heavy-duty earth moving equipment.

While in the process digging the foundation with a rented excavator for his new home in Colorado, Ed Mumm had fun using the piece of equipment and got inspired to start a business based off the experience. His idea was to start a theme park where average people could get the chance to pilot heavy duty earth moving equipment, in essentially an adult sized sandbox. Munn launched a pilot version of his park called “Dig This” three years ago in his home town of Steamboat Springs on a ten acre site. He spent the time building up a training program and refining the visitor experience. Even with the somewhat remote nature of the Colorado location, the business became a success and Munn decided it was time to take it to a bigger market. The second Dig This location recently opened off the Las Vegas strip and gives guests the opportunity to test either a Caterpillar excavator or bulldozer.
