Dig This - Heavy Equipment Sand Box

I haven't been here, but just heard about this. It's the first heavy equipment play area in the USA. It sounds like a blast, especially for those who dreamed about driving big equipment when they were kids or played with Tonka Trucks in the sand box.

[Laura Bloom, 06/26/2008]

The equipment here includes a Caterpillar D5G bulldozer, two 315 excavators, and a 6-ton skid-steer. A franchise is reportedly in the works for Las Vegas as well.
