This is an interesting idea, it’s a theme park in Las Vegas where customers can drive diggers and other machinery. Called Dig This the park has various machinery including a pair of bulldozers and some hydraulic excavators. Visitors are able to buy three hour packages which include a safety course followed by some time operating the machines. They are able to dig a trench, build an earthen mound or perform skill tests using the machines. It all sounds quite fun, I wonder if there is anywhere in the UK you can do this.
