Construction Theme Park: A Super-Sized Sandbox for Adults

A Nevada entrepreneur wants to open a theme park called Dig This outside of Las Vegas, Nevada, where people can operate bulldozers, backhoes and dump trucks. Sounds like a great idea to me, especially in the wide open spaces of Nevada. Unfortunately, the neighbors don’t agree.

MyNews3 has more:

The project has been envisioned as a heavy equipment theme park where customers can drive bulldozers, backhoes, and dump trucks.

For anyone that loves trucks and heavy machinery, this could be quite a playground. But there’s a lot of skepticism surrounding the plan, which could also be very noisy and dusty.

Business owner Ed Mumm pitched his plan to build his construction theme park “Dig This” at the corner of Maryland Parkway and Cactus in Henderson. Mumm already operates a similar attraction in Colorado.

“Basically, a big adult sandbox super-sized from their earlier childhood.”
